Finhead (1684) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2013
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.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Big citrus nose with a bit of a unique sweetness that was unexpected. Earthy hoppy flavors come through slightly. Not heavy on the tongue. Orange with great lacing. Very good!

guzzler67 (1676) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2012
Clear amber appearance with a large, off white head and good lacing. Appealing aroma of pine and citrus. Hop flavors are a bit more mellow than anticipated; more floral and herbal. Modest sweetness, but bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with an average length finish.

Andrew196 (1663) - 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.

Light notes of hops and citrus. Light and watery upfront but the hops hit you in the end. Medium mouthfeel. Bottle.

strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle. Powerful floral hop aroma. Clear golden beer with a nice white head that clings to the glass. Sharp bitterness with some spice in the lingering finish. Overall a very good IPA that I will go back for lots of flavor.

Barreras (1642) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Pours an orange color with a slight copper tint. A distinct floral aroma. Taste is very floral and grassy. A bitter IPA aftertaste that didnt linger. Overall a simple IPA that surprises with a hint of citrus.

lamas (1620) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. Best before: 04/20/13. A clear amber pour with a smallish beige head. A fine aroma of juicy oranges, grapefruits, faint pineapple, caramel, and pine trees. Relatively medium-bodied on the way down. Caramel, a light biscuity presence, and some hints of buttered bread upfront taste-wise. Grapefruits, oranges, and zesty citrus rinds are plentiful towards the end. The alcohol is well-hidden. Nicely balanced. Well-done. A standard for the style.
