Strong orange smell. Excellent citrus flavor, yet nicely happy. Cloudy yellow orange in color. I want more.

Poured a copper color with orange highlights. It had a thick, two-finger head of off-white foam. It smelled of grapefruit, citrus and hints of bubblegum. There was a nice caramel malt smell, too. It tasted of roasted malt with mild grapefruit and bubblegum flavors. It was crisp and very sharp.

On tap and the list stated this one at 7% ABV. Poured a clear golden color with a thick two finger, off white colored heading. Very soapy looking rings left throughout the glass.

Very aromatic with floral notes and tropial fruits (grapefruit,lemon zest) awesome sweet malt backbone.

Extremely sweet tasting,so much that it hurts the fillings. Solid malt billing here at first but overwhelming overpowered by a huge hop kick. This seems like pure hop oil but it does settle to a nice hop bitterness with just a touch of warm alcohol on the breath to finish things up.

Medium bodied and great carbionation, nice bubbley prickness on the tongue with a slight stickiness on the lips.

I've had so many IPA's since my tasting journeybegan, some memborable and some forgettable this on ranks pretty high in my book. Not the best but certainly not the worst.

Purchaed on 3/23/12. Reviewed from Notes.

$6 gets you a pint.

(Appearance) Pours a thick froth tan head with thin spotty lacing. Retention is average. Color is a very murky dark amber, almost light brown in spots. Really bold looking IPA. 4

(Smell) Floral and perfume aroma form a delicate hop bouquet over a solid malt backbone. Clean smelling and fresh. Big potency. Nice. 4

(Taste) Spicy hop character with a hint of caramel malt and a touch of rye makes up the majority of this brew. Just flavorful enough without getting too hot in hop flavor. Very nice. 4

(Mouthfeel) Smooth flavor and minor carbonation, good to compliment the Flavors of this brew. A touch more carbonation could do this beer well. 3.5

(Overall) Great intro to what 5 seasons is capable of. I'm looking forward to more from this brewery in the future. 4
