Good IPA. Cloudy, amber; with medium-sized head. Aroma of a grapefruit with some caramel and pine. Almost the same in taste. Decent hoppy bitterness in aftertaste. Very drinkable . kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2014
From old notes:
Draft pour in New York wherever I’m at. Cloudy orange with tiny circle of white head. Fruity orange tangerine aroma. Fruity orange taste too. Mild bitter and hoppiness. Drinkable as shit - fruit juice Brigadier (3680) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2014

A solid IPA is no Double Simcoe but works reasonably well as a regional session beer. Not once to sit on at all, it already felt as if the polish was coming off despite it being tasted as soon as possible. I doubt I would buy it again with so many other options in the area. Even so it defines a typical middle of the road IPA.
Aroma / Appearance - A cloudy coppery base shimmers with a foamy layer of eggshell decoration. Caramel, twigs, and earthy hops lend this an arboreal nature of Twix rolled in pine sap.
Flavor / Palate - The full bodied mouthfeel immediately fills the palate with a wave of caramel dipped oranges, oak, and strong citrus bursts. The dry transition carries to a warm hoppy finish typical of a well crafted IPA. Effective at getting the job done, the beer ultimately falls in the middle of the road with a blend of pine sap and apple. This is above the median for Weyerbacher.
Aroma: flowers, tropical fruits. Appearance: hazy pale gold. Taste: light sweet.
Palate: turning light bitter, flowers, light dry in the average finish. Overall: great IPA, nice and soft. Pint at The Ginger Man, Manhattan.

Bottle from Rally. Aroma smells normally hoppy. Appearance is plain and boring. Palate is nice, bubbly and smooth. Tastes like any IPA that is trying to be overly hoppy and dry. Not bad...but nothing amazing.

Pours a medium-orange with a one finger white head. Aroma is of citrus, tropical fruits, pine, ans some light bready malts. Taste is similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a above average, easy drinking IPA that is borderline sessionable. matty (415) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a thick, slightly off-white head that settles to a film leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is hop-heavy - mostly pine with some citrus and fruit notes along with a little caramel. Medium body along with a nice balance of malt and hops. Dry finish, seems a little thin on the swallow, the hops linger as well. Not bad. BLADT (700) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Tap. Gold-amber with foamy white head. Papery nose, with light orange. Sourdough bread. Taste is grassy through and through. Bitter. Tropical fruit and super light caramel. Sharp edges. Dry finish. A little thin on the palate. OK. KyotoLefty (10254) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 22, 2014
Cask at BArcade. Big leafy dry-hopped nose, pine and orange. Smooth, full, a bit bread. Very bitter finish. Good stuff, though maybe a bit too bitter.
