4.28/5 rDev +3.6%
Dark orange with 1 finger of white head. Has nice retention and leaves a nice lace. The aroma has grapefruit, citrus zest, tangerines, pine and some caramel malt. smells like it should have a nice combination of sweetness and bitterness.
The taste is very much like the aroma with grapefruit, tangerines, citrus zest, pine, and light caramel malt. It does not taste as balanced as it smells. The taste is more bitter than the aroma suggested, but it is not overly bitter or harsh at all. It is very nice.
Medium bodied with below average carbonation. Has a grapefruit aftertaste. Overall very good. If I get another chance while out of state, I will be sure to pick this up again.

I love this beer. The last time I went out of state to buy it the brewery was sold out. I was heart broken. A: pretty red with a nice tan head that had staying power. S: like Simcoe and cascade hops. Not citrus. T: follows the smell. But sweet for such a low abv. M: what you expect in a nice drinkable ipa. Velvety and easy to drink. O: cheaper for a 6 pack than you can make at home and probably better. Buy it and drink it.

3.7/5 rDev -10.4%
Special thanks to MilwaukeeCrusher for delivering us this beer.
A: Pours a clear and deep amber colour with 2 fingers of bone white head which settles to a thin film with plenty of lacing along the sides of the glass. Small amounts of sediment cover the bottom of the glass.
S: Upfront scents of tropical fruit, floral notes of orange flower water and fresh cut grass which is layered along side of a strong backbone of sweet malts.
T: Initial notes of citrus peels, grapefruit rind and lemon pith, followed by dark sweet malts. Finishes with a hint of vegetativeness that lingers.
M: Medium bodied with fairly active carbonation.
O: A very hop forward brew that will please those looking for citrus based hops. Quite balanced with a solid backbone of malts, but not over complex.

3.84/5 rDev -7%
A - Extra dark body with crisp puffy white head
S - More pine notes than citrus - pleasant hop aroma
T - Malty start with hop middle and bitter finish. Good, but would have preferred more depth and a bit more balance.
M - Nice carbonation and creamy texture gives it a heartier feel.
O - Good beer. I like it enough to drink it again, but I wasn't wowed by anything.
