Had this on tap at Dingle House Pub in West Chester, OH.
Appears bright golden-amber in hue with a slight chill haze and a thick head of dense barely off-white foam. Some bits of sediment (yeast? dry hops?) are visible floating in the beer. Nice hoppy aroma with some pine, citrus and floral notes. The glass felt pretty cold, so I let the beer warm a bit.
Medium body with a smooth, creamy texture and fine carbonation. Citric hops up front with grapefruit standing out, followed by toasty malt, more hops with a decent bitterness, some pine and floral notes. Hints of tangerine and lemon, and something else - maybe faint pineapple.The finish includes grapefruit pith. Nice, solid IPA with plenty of hops - more hops than Stone IPA, maybe on a par with BJ's Piranha Pale Ale and Sierra Nevada Torpedo. Heavy foam sheeting on the glass.
Serving type: on-tap

I had my first one of these in a sturdy glass mug at cellar temperature.
Perfect presentation. A long-lasting puffy two-finger white head leaves a pretty pattern of lacing behind, over a clear golden, sunset orange body.
The aroma, while not overly strong, is fairly heavy on lemon and orange. There's also a bit of a sweet yeasty smell.
A fruity orange juice taste is the initial flavor detected. This transitions very nicely into a drier, more astringent orange or lemon peel taste, and finally turns to biscuity breadiness in the finish. A resinous pine needle bitterness resonates for minutes after a sip. Done by the books, in highly satisfactory fashion.
Mild carbonation lends a seamlessly smooth and quaffable feel to this one.
There's nothing not to like about it. This beer will alleviate a hops craving just as well as any other IPA of high renown.

Pours nice and smooth with a golden brown, but somewhat lightly yellow body. Lighter color than most ipas in my opinion. Small one finger head and nice lace on the glass.
Not too complex in the nose, nice herbal hops and grapefruitiness to it. A little watery in the smell.
The taste was better than expected, very citrusy (grapefruits), and nice hops with some toasted malt bitterness coming through at the end. Intriguingly creamy?
Big carbonation and very drinkable.
I drink a lot of ipas, and this is somehow different, but hard to put my finger on how. Not the greatest brew ever, but good for sure.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a fine one finger ivory head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt, citrus hops, light orange family citrus. Flavor is rich caramel and bready malt, resiny pine and citrus hops, nice lingering pine and mildly citrus hop bitterness. Medium body with a a light creaminess. A quite nicely balanced and smooth IPA. Nice hop bill with more pine influence but good citrus too. Great tasting malt support body. This may be an older bottle, not confident about the store I bought it from; kudos for the healthy hop flavor is has been sitting for a while. Enjoyable.
