A big thanks to mullenpc for this extra. Cheers!

Appearance – Pours a clear amber hue into a tulip with about a finger + of slightly off white head that dissipates slowly leaving chunky lacing.

Smell – Pine, citrus, bready malts, orange, pineapple, and floral.

Taste – Lots of hops and slight bitterness, plenty of citrus mainly orange (quite nice). Spicy hops (white pepper), slight bready malty backbone.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, creamy, prickly carbonation.

Overall – A pretty good IPA. It is going down easily.

Entering in some old paper reviews tonight... This bottle came from Izecold88... Manny is an awesome trader.

Pours a clear orange with good white head... nice lacing and retention.

The brew packs a good citrus nose with some borderline piney hoppiness... decent pale malts help carry the aromas up and out of the glass.

Flavor is more about the midpalate hops... a light bitterness up front and a light pale malt note brings a pungent citrus zest hopppiness.... crisp and yummy... no mistaking this is a hop delivery device.

Medium body with the expected carbonation.

Overall, I was pretty impressed with this one... very fresh and vibrant.

4's across the board.

Had on tap at Mellow Mushroon in Myrtle Beach. Looked golden in color and farily clear, average head with some lacing. Smell was on grapefruit and grass, hops. Taste was similar, big up front grapefruit flavor with a nice bitter finish. Mouthfeel was quite good. Very drinkable and smooth. An easy to drink smooth IPA. Nice.
