Copper pour. A nice piney hit to the palate. A smooth hoppy IPA, easy to drink but will definitely bring the buzz. I would easily drink it again, a perfect choice for a mellow evening.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Complex taste with beautiful, dry finish. I taste the pine, the citrus, and the hops add but do not overwhelm. Nice.

Clear orange pour with a nice white head and great lacing. Aromais really nice sweet citrusy hops, a little toffee, and pine. Taste is pine up front with slight sweetness and then grapefruit in the finish. Nice bitterness. Medium light body. Good beer.

scotchzombie (581) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Pours cloudy orange amber with a bumpy foamy yellow-white head. Soapy lacing. Aroma is sweet floral pine hop resin and citrus. Very appetizing. Taste is very hop forward with caramel malt, floral pine and orange citrus sweetness giving way - after an unusual delay - to a dry, grassy hop bitterness that lingers to the aftertaste. Starts off very creamy on the palate. Not the most balanced beer, but very enjoyable flavors and very drinkable. A pleasant surprise! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is one of my favorite IPA's. Very aromatic and clean while totally drinkable and refreshing. He hop profile doesn't kick your palate in to badly for being as bold as it is.

Ron (3885) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a thin off white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma has lots of fresh, piney, grapefruit hops. The taste has grapefruit, slight mango and a little bit of pine. Grapefruit is the dominating flavor here. The end palate leaves a lingering bitterness backed up by the caramel malts. Creamy feeling body with moderate carbonation.
