Pours a nice hazy orange from bottle. Smells like your typical IPA; resinous, citrusy, piney. Tastes a bit on the sweeter side although balanced out by the hop bill. Pretty smooth going down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Andrew196 (1623) - Katy, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Bottle to glass - Pours beautifully! A slightly tinted, rich mahagony-orange with a resilient frothy off white head. Aroma is fresh, juicy citra, pine resin, some sweet malts. Medium bodied, not as complex as if hoped for on the tongue. Well balanced but somewhat plain with resin and bread... Long bitter finish.

PhillyCraft (6451) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Backlogged blackberry Tick, had bottles of this many times with Annie but this tick is from a North Jersey booze brew fest in 2012. Pours light hazy copper golden with 2 finger white head. Notes of pine, bitter lemon, grapefruit, toasted malt, and herbs. A little thin but not bad. Havent had this in years but I only imagine its gotten worse like most craft beer.

AleJones (22) - Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Poured into a glass from a bottle. Hazy appearance. Aroma is outstanding with strong citrus and pine notes. Taste is consistent with the smell but a underwhelming bitter and grainy finish leaves a lot to be desired. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at SBWF 2016. Hazy dark golden with a white head. Hoppy with grapefruit, grass and malt. On the sweet side with a medium bitter finish. A decent one.

I really have trouble writing reviews for these IPAs because they all, relatively, taste the same to me. High quality, fresh-tasting IPAs are a dime a dozen and very few examples are doing anything dramatically different or re-inventing the wheel. At least not the ones I am drinking. And theres nothing wrong with that. This is another fine tasting IPA I would qualify as high-quality.
