Draft. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex hop aroma. Medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet hop flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a change of pace solid beer. drfabulous (7816) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - APR 16, 2015
Draught at brewery. Hoppy IPA with orange body in pour and a bit of bitterness. Nice. ttutony (918) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2015
Hazy copper color. Minimal head. Resinous, slightly sweet hop aroma. Great balance. Bitterness is present but not overwhelming. Well made. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Tasted on 7/28/12 on draft at the brewpub with Erika. Pours hazy dark orange with a thick white head that leaves average lace. The nose is spiced, caramelized orange peel, pine resin, and some caramel malt, with the earthy yeast aroma coming through nicely. The flavor is a nice balance of all of the above, a bit maltier than I expected with some bread. The body is medium with just below average carbonation and a long spiced orange peel bitter hops finish. ben4321 (6417) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Location: Draft at The Admiral in Asheville, 1/2/15

Aroma: The aroma is pine hops, floral notes, some light fruit, and a little caramel.
Appearance: A slightly cloudy orange color, with a white head, and some medium lace.
Flavor: The taste leans bitter, with a lightly sweet balancing flavor as well.
Palate: It is medium-plus bodied, with average carbonation, and a dry finish.
This one actually kind of grew on me. At first taste I probably would have had it lower in the 3 range, but after a pint I settled here.
Tap, orange pour, white head, nose is hoppy, taste is bitter, citrus, good ipa MartinT (9852) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
My Bottom Line:Lubiere (13796) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
This classic 90’s IPA juxtaposes citrus fruit, caramel and hop resins in a chewy mouthfeel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty dull amber.
-This is too sweet for my liking in IPAs.
-Oranges peer through often.
-This is quite drinkable.
-I guess I was expecting a brighter example for such a popular IPA !
On tap at the brewery taproom.
A hazed amber ipa with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light floral hops, grapefruit pulp, nice. In mouth, grainy caramel malt with light floral hops, grapefruit pulp, very intense, grassy character, nice. On tap at brewery. jbruner (4697) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Pours a hazy golden brown on tap with dissipating white head that leaves little lace. Aroma is mostly malt with a hint of pine and floral hops. Taste follows, definitely an English style IPA. Mild bitterness, low carbonation, kind of bland. kaser (6220) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Dark Orange cloudy pour from draft at wedge brewery. White sticky head. Earthy tropical aroma. Big citrus tangerine and apricot taste. Perfect balance of hops bitterness and fruits. Love it
