A: The beer is clear orange amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high light beige head that hardly died down and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of citrus in the nose - oranges and tangerines seem to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste is citrusy and has lots of flavors of clementines along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The orange and tangerine flavors in this beer make this unique compared to the other citrus beers dominated by grapefruit.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy orange amber color witha nice 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of apple, grapefruit, orange rind, caramel, floral, grass, and herbal spiciness. Ok aromas, but they aren’t very hoppy for an IPA; kind of weak as well. Taste of grapefruit, pine, caramel, toast, orange rind, floral, grass, bread, and herbal spiciness. Good amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, caramel, pine, bread, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance of flavors; good bitterness/sweetness balance as well. No cloying flavors at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good IPA. Good flavor balance; very smooth and crisp to drink. Enjoyable stuff for sure.

A - Pours a hazy amber-orange with a big finger of frothy slightly off-white head. The head fades down at a slow pace leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of pine and grapefruit hops with some sweet caramel and lightly bready malts.

T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit and citrus hops with some bitterness and sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine and floral hops come through with some more bitterness and some bready malts. Finish is a mix of grapefruit and pine hops with some bitterness with some sweet bready and caramel malts.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice hop profile and hop and malt balance.

Happily found this in my local Giant Eagle. I love supporting my local beer scene.

A mildly aggressive pour launched my experience with slightly more than a finger of banana cream colored head. Body is a rich amber-orange color, and the head died down in a minute or so to thick ring and dusting up top. Lacing tries clinging to the glass, but to no avail.

The nose is a bouquet of floral and pine hops. Very bready malt tones balance it out, with some caramel being very noticeable.

Flavor is very good. Pine hops dominate, with bready malt in the middle to balance it out. Pine and floral up front, resiny pine on the back, with just a hint of sweetness to finish it off.

Medium bodied. Extremely dry finish.

Went home to Lima, Ohio, and found this at a local grocery store and figured I'd give this a try.

Poured this brew into a Stone Imperial Stout glass, and the IPA makes a strong three finger thick foam cranium that is tan in color, and the body is copper in color with a mild chill haze at most.

The aroma is perfume, orange rind, caramel and toffee, and slightly floral.

The taste is very well balanced, and this bew seems to be a hybrid between the US and UK style. Lots of caramel sweetness followed up by sharp stabs of lemony and piny hops.

Feels lightly carbonated, oily and sticky at the same time, and leaves the palate coarse and dry... Maybe a little sugary stickiness too.

Had on tap at the dilly deli. Poured into an imperial pint glass

A- dark golden brown in the glass with an exceptionally white 2 finger head that slips away to a bubbly white ring. Minimal lace with only sporadic polka dots on the side of this huge glass.

S- very malty and bready for an ipa. The Only hops that i am getting from the nose are faint grassy hops with a touch of soap.

T- marginally better than the smell. Hops are more pronounced with a squirt of citrus accompanying the grass and soap. Malts blend tastefully with these hop flavors to create a enjoyable ipa but nothing that will change the world

M- slightly oily with a slick mouthfeel. Carbonation receded as I got deeper in the glass. Pretty nice feel

Overall a beer that I would drink again. The flavors are right but not strong and the nose is the biggest disappointment. A beer that lives up to it's name. Wanting to do something but not doing enough. Good beer
