Orange beer with a generous foamy head that holds up a good while, only allowing minimal recession for the foamy lacing to appear.

I think the nose is a little muted from the head perhaps since all I really get is something just "generally" bitter without any real signature.

Taste provides a bit more as I have a nice floral bitter happening before a sweet berry taste falls in behind.

Little bit of earthy bitterness in the aftertaste, not much else.

This poured a pale golden straw color with a little haze. Decent head with not much retention and no lacing. The aroma was understated but promising. The taste felt light and unbalanced in my mouth with a thin carbonated body and not-very-well-hidden alcohol. A drinkable and not un enjoyable beer but not something I would buy regularly.

Bottle label date: 07 27 2015 with an ABV of 6.9% (their web site lists the current ABV as 7.6%)

Cloudy, golden hued body with a very thick, creamy, dense head; lots of fine, gently rising carbonation bubbles. A faint, muddled aroma of grasses and herbs; sweet, malt grain note. Sweet, grainy flavors with some spicy bitterness; powdered sugar; biscuits and honey. Medium bodied; smooth, velvety texture; mostly dry finish.

The beer label claims "triple hopping" during the brewing process plus two rounds of dry hopping. Granted, the time between the bottle's date and my consumption is about five months, but there was little definitive hop presence in the aroma or the flavor. All the same, the beer looks great and has a pleasant, very enjoyable flavor even if it doesn't reach hop-bomb status.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- pours a nice clear golden color with a 3 finger head that settles and leaves abundant lace on the way down. Head is foamy rather than bubbly, small bubble rise from the bottom of the glass leisurely.

S- Nose smells of sweet fresh citrus and apricots, there's a fresh smell here that I'm not used to picking up, very crisp. As the head fades the nose changes to a grassier essence. Can't speak to the age of the bottle, can't be old at all, but I'm not sure if this is straight from the tap fresh...it was the last 6'er @ the Giant Eagle

T- taste seems very different from the nose, there's a very, very slight caramel/toffee hint in this brew. Citrus and apricots come across more like grass.

M- seems to be under carbonated, although really good head at the beginning of the brew. Not sure what I think about this, I could definitely use a bit more bubbly

O- I was really excited about this beer as I poured it and took my first whiff of the nose, but then it just fell flat for me, it wasn't bad, it just failed to stand out for me.

A-Pours a clear apricot with a very thin white head that settles into a nice pool.

S-Lots of bready malt, some caramel malt, very light hops.

T-Nice moderate earthy bitterness right up front with caramel malt right along. Good long lingering bitter finish.

M-Medium bodied, crisp carbonation.

O-Pretty decent IPA. A little more dry hopping would be nice.
