3.55/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz. bottle, drank out of a pint glass.

The appearance is quite bland. A very clear, clean golden color for this beer. The color is very transparent. No foam to create a head. I did pour it delicately. Even with the delicate pour there was little to no lacing. A small streak about the glass but that was about it.

The scents are strong in the malts. There is a nice hop compliment that profiles a floral quality which is very pleasant. The scents end with a mild tang. A nice bouquet.

The flavors are simplistic. The malts are filled with caramel and a light bread. The hops give a floral and mild fruit complex to the beer. The hop flavors do not push the malts. There is no fight for dominance from the ingredients with this IPA. There is a nice balance between the malts and hops to create a very flavorful beer. There is a citrus aftertaste which is complimentary to the beer. It is a mystery to me why the citrus becomes prominent after the taste and not during? The flavors are very enjoyable.

This is a very easy drinking beer. It is smooth and easy on the palatte. A definite session IPA. It won't attack the taste buds, but it gives the drinker a nice flavorful and mellow IPA. An IPA for a simple moment.

This beer has plenty of flavor but does not push the limits. A well crafted beer that will not knock you out but will leave you with a satisfying drink.

3.23/5  rDev -12.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Pours fairly clear and golden, a tight finger high withe head. Tight singular ring forms after poor retention.

Little to no aroma coming off this beer, some honey dipped bready malt is quite plain with a slight green tea, grass and piney hop aroma.

Bready malt has a touch of honey sweetness. The hops are grassy with a mild orange citrus and general fruity esters. The black tea note on the finish indicates this might be past its prime. Quite bitter on the finish with a lasting pine burn.

Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Lasting bitterness that carries dank pine with some alcohol burn.

A disappointing IPA, quite drinkable but no aroma other than light malt and barely any hops. A huge tea flavor and bitterness but otherwise un-remarkable, more of a pale ale in flavor and build.

2.68/5  rDev -27.6%
look: 5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

12 oz bottle, best by 7/16/14. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a big meringue white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet bready malts with some grassy hops.

The flavor is sweet toasted malts with some grassy bitterness and a little fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, it's very subdued and sweet and grassy.

3.04/5  rDev -17.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Slightly chill hazed orange colored ale with a tall white head. This is at the lower end of the IPA Orange spectrum.

Smells mild for an IPA. Mild malt and a little grapefruit aroma. Faint scent of pinewood, just not that aromatic.

Starts out tasting of toasted grain and strong tea. Little bit of citrus flavor but overall this is pretty much closer to a pale ale than an IPA.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall this is damn easy to drink but it will leave hopheads with the feeling they have been cheated. Buy this expecting to taste Pale Ale and it is OK.

3.09/5  rDev -16.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Beer is a very pale olden color, slight haze, almost no head. Carbonation is okay.

Aroma is citrusy and slightly fruity. Very pleasant aroma, the hops are subtle, not right in your face. No malt aroma.

Tastes is bitter, hops linger on the tongue. Citrus and grapefruit, bitter hop bit at the end. Crisp, not too sweet but not dry either.

Medium Mouthfeel.

A well made beer. Nothing outstanding but it is still crisp and refreshing and the citrus comes through well.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint.

A: Deep amber hue. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly white head. Settles fairly slowly leaving residue and a smattering of carbonation on the surface. Thick, persistent, dry lacing.

S: Pine cones, pine resin, and grapefruit.

T: Pine, nuts, and grapefruit... tastes like it smells.

M: Syrupy texture. Hop forward, little sweetness for balance, bitter dry finish.

D: Sipping experience... the character will dictate.

Atmosphere is really nice. Nice head, dark hue, and some thick persistent lacing. Nose is piney and citrusy. Pine, with a malty nut character, and lots of grapefruit pith. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
