Bottle. Hazy dark orange. Fray white head. Grapefruit rind. Orange. Tropical. Peach. Some pine. Moderate plus bitterness. Moderate sweetness. Lighter medium body. Dry and a bit earthy, spicy, and almost chalky. A lot of flavor elements. Its better when its not over analyzed.

bottle - This orange colored brew has an assertive grapefruit hop aroma. The flavor features good, crisp bitterness and citrus flavors preceded by a touch of nicely balanced malt sweetness. It’s medium bodied, finishes with a fresh tasting bitterness, and is overall a very pleasant quaff.

On tap Orangish amber with slight white head. Fruity aroma, wither the fruitiness mixing decently with the hops for a refreshing summer IPA. Citrus remains in aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange pour, off white head. Light fruity citrus aroma, quite mild floral fruit hop flavor. Okay.

Zymurgeist2 (2434) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Grass and earthy hop aroma with a minor citrus hop hint in the back. Orange aroma comes out as it warms. Biscuity malt. Pours a clear orange with a full white head. Flavor leans toward a balance of citrus and sourdough bread malt. Moderate high bitterness and a sweet finish. As it warms, some alcohol warmth starts to show. Overall, a little underwhelming and not robust.

wxman (1865) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with a big full rocky white head that laces and stays. Mild pine cone aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, grapefruit and bread. Hop bitterness is certainly up front as well, but not as much as 82 IBU would indicate. Quite good; refreshing and balanced.

3.5
thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle at Bishops Arms Vasagatan. Amber, some froth. Tropical fruit, orange zest hop nose. Malty flavours balanced by quite complex hop flavours. Nice one, but lacking the extra kick?

solidfunk (9729) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Nice fresh and zest IPA. Pours cloudy golden with good head and lacing. Finishes bitter. Grapefruit finish with nice medium bitterness. Soft carbonation. Nice slick texture. Tap at pizzeria paradiso.

cbfobes (2888) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2014
12oz bottle, pours a copper orange with a bubbly white head and lots of lacing, aroma has a nice fruity hop touch with some citrus mixed in as well, flavor has a nice citrus front end with a fruity finish, pretty bright and light for the most part, tasty.

bigda83 (879) - Jamestown, New York, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber, a bit cloudy, slight white head. Aroma was grapefruit, pine, floral, and other citrus. Taste followed the nose. Very hoppy and bitter was felt from start to finish. Medium bodied, well carbed, bottle was fresh. Overall solid IPA.
