look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a sam adams custom glass: color is copper, slightly opaque, head is off white, solid presentation, good lacing.

Smell is big, floral, fruity hops: grapefruit, lemon, mangos, touch of malt sweetness.

Taste is big on hop bitterness, fruity, floral hop flavors continue from the scent, grapefruit rind and mangos are prominent; malts are neutral, not any caramel, some grape type flavor noted (munich malts?). Something drying and to onesided about the taste, earthy hops and metallic flavors noted as it comes through as it warms.

Mouthfeel is also a bit onesided, hop bitterness is not overstrong, but flavors are subdued. Strong on the tongue and drying.

Overall, a decent ipa, its not too sweet, but the off flavors take away from big hop profile.

12 oz bottle, no date.

copper in color, big fluffy bright white head. great retention, lacing. smell does not have overly aggressive hops, but pleasant. earthy, grassy, citrus hops. great balance in the taste of slightly sweet bready malt and crisp citrus hops. medium body and carbonation. drinks easy.

overall - very drinkable for an IPA. the best from Free Will so far.

I like this beer. It was a great example of the IPA style.
Came to me, via a bartender at the Blue Dog, an orange amber color and made for a striking contrast with a tall dense white head. Like an orange creamcicle.
Aroma was fantastic. Bold and citrusy hops.
Taste was equally good and mirrored the nose. Fresh, wet hops with a citrus taste. The malts were in great balance and sweet.
Carbonation tickled the palate. It drinks sweet but also tends to dry out at the finish. Pleasently bitter with some sticky hops.
Really, an awesome beer. Go get some!

A - Pours a murky orange color with a ton of head and lots of lacing.
S - Big time orange scent, some other citrus as well, a little sweet bread kind of malt, some earthy undertones.
T - Good hope bite and citrus flavor in this one, both are well balanced, a good touch of sweet malt, crisp tart apple.
M - Lots of carbonation, but a little sticky, good lingering taste.
O - Was pleasantly surprised by this brew, I'm going to try more of theirs because of this beer.
