Poured from bottle into Crate and Barrel craft beer glass. Hazy amber orange with big fluffy off white head. LOTS of lacing. Big hoppy pine citrus aroma. Taste is sweet and juicy with plenty of hop and malt. Finish is long lingering bitter grapefruit. Very easy to drink. So smooth for a 7+ ABV. Plenty of carbonation. One of my favorite IPA’s to date.

Poured a finger and half of head on a hazy, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is a nice orange and mandarin smell.
The taste is moderate to strong pine and grapefruit bitterness throughout with a nice orange sweetness balancing it out.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.

Clear golden bronze color with a lovely frothy head. Very fragrant floral aroma with notes of blood orange and honey. Crisp bitter flavor. Velvety smooth mouthfeel. Best IPA I’ve had in ages. cpalmisano (14) - - OCT 4, 2013
Appearance: golden amber. Fluffy white head. Some lacing.
Aroma: subtle piney-ness
Taste: harsh bitterness in the back of the mouth. Not my favorite blend of hops.
Palate: dry finish. Thin mouth feel. Nice effervescence from the carbonation.
Not my favorite IPA

Pours medium orange/amber with small offwhite head and thin lacing. Aromas of bready malt, citrus, pine and a little toffee. Taste is juicy and sweet to start quickly growing into a citrus bite with earthy hops. Finish is dry. Bosoxfanme (5) - Gorham, Maine, USA - SEP 29, 2013 does not count
In a 12oz bottle. Tangy sweet hop aroma. Huge nectarine-hop flavor. Finishes with sweetness, sweetness and more sweetness. Hops overwhelm the malts just like you’d expect in a booming West Coast-style IPA.

Clear, deep amber-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. The aroma has orange rind with light pine and some faint cereal. It has a medium body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a relatively mild finish. TylerGreenDC (953) - - SEP 25, 2013

Had at a friends place while bottling home brew. Poured an amber color with a small white head. Aroma was lots of fresh citrus notes, grapefruit is light, some tropical notes of mangoes. Flavor was some pine hops, grass notes, and a nice sweet malt backing.
