Cloudy golden with a medium sized off-white head, good lacing. Mild aroma is floral. Taste is floral, caramel and pine
Tap at Groveland Tap. Bumped pint glass. Copper color with quarter finger head. Aroma is heavily citrus and some floral. Taste has that cloying/drying tendency some beers exhibit. Bitter hop presence which was expected based on the hop levels proclaimed in the name. Kind of a grapefruit rind element. Shows improvement as you drink it but doesn’t get to the impressive stage. It’s a good one to try but lower your expectations slightly. ARH (1165) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2014
On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is a mellow, citrus and floral blend, with some caramel and grain late. It pours an oily brown-orange color with an off-white, soapy head. A thick, fluffy ring is left behind with a hefty surface layer, and lots of lace is left on the glass. The taste is a medium bitter with a slightly lighter sweetness. The beer is slick with a creamy smooth carbonation and a medium body. Well blended flavors of caramel and resin come through with a slightly burnt and slight cola touch. The finish is crisp with citrus and a bit of resin. The aftertaste is a bit cloying with notes of bread and citrus peel. Solid IPA, very easy to drink.

Pours a dark amber colour with lots of white lacing and a little head not a bad looking beer. Nice floral rose aroma, real nice. Grapefruit/orange hop flavor, with some malty background flavors. A good beer. PorterPounder (8286) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling medium dark copper with a persistent off white head that leaves a nice film of lacing. Light sprucey accents, some nuttiness in the aroma. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it, some nuttiness, a touch of caramel sweetness, a hint of vanilla. Nice, thick mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Aroma of floral hops, taste is hoppy, resiny, some malt but unbalanced. Pass next time. outlawskies (564) - Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Julie feels that it taste like licking an air freshener. Very flower and forgettable she gives a 0.2. I think it is mellow but boring not very hoppy Aurelius (5570) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2014
At last, an AIPA that acknowledges unsubtleness. Clear, medium pinky-bronze. Fair label. Standard 12 oz longneck. Toasted toffee aroma. Steep bitterness, husky, tannic, grainy sweetness. Slightly heavy body, loses carbonation, bittering clings a bit. ABC Liquors, Betton.
