Pours a half inch head which becomes a ring buy stays. Good lacing. An opaque yellow orange in color. The smell has a mostly sweet malty yet hoppy thing happening. The taste is in the reverse nose order in my opinion. Hops followed by the malts in the back. The mouthfeel is moderate. Overall it's true to the IPA tradition. Not the best I've had but certainly enjoyable and will have again.

Had this from a bottle, poured into a tulip glass. Deep golden color, some light copper in there, with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of big grapefruits, some strong caramel malts, a hint of other tropical fruits. Flavor follows with the standard grapefruit-malt combination, not overly bitter. Fruity and slick, medium carbonation. Overall a solid beer, but nothing particularly exciting. Done right, would drink again, won't seek out again (not that it is difficult to find).

A-Clear orange, two finger head that lingers.

S-Earthy hops, caramel, some citrus notes as well.

T-Starts with some malt and finishes with pine hops and some citrus. Nice bitterness to her.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation, smooth.

O-A really good IPA, I'd gladly have it again but with the style there are so many great options.

Bought this six from the Beer Store in Southampton Pa and it was a bit dated say by a year. I don't hold them at fault since they got it from a distriutor more then likely, but paying 15 for a year old beer is not good.

Lets rotate guys a little.

Anyway...

beer pours amber with an orange blush and is cloudy and hazy.
Nose is simple sweet caramel malts here. Hops have long since faded away.
Taste find a still quite bitteer ale over sweet caramel malts. Pehaps some floral hops but I'm reaching at this point.
Your prototypicial stale IPA.
I'll try again at a latter date.

Pours very hazy orange amber color with bubbles racing up the middle and a 2 finger foamy beige tan that faded very slowly with craters forming as the head eased its way down; left good foamy lacing sticking to the sides.

Smells of big citrus hops and piney hops up front, with orange peel, grapefruit, lemon zest, pine cone, floral hops, brown sugar, caramel, toasted grains, biscuit, fruity notes and just enough malt to make it perfectly balanced for an IPA.

Tastes as good as it smells, with piney hops, citrus hops, orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, maybe some tangerine or guava, pine cone, floral hops, brown sugar, caramel, toasted grains, biscuit, fruity notes like pear or apple, tea leaf, herbs and spices like coriander, pepper and light cinnamon; the hops steal the show and dominate in a very good way, letting the malt/grains level it out and hiding the alcohol very well. The hop burst up front never really let's off the gas pedal and yet this remains, smooth, delicious and highly drinkable.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with a medium chewy body, light carbonation and a bitter finish that is very sweet and full of citrus flavor and some grains. The end sweetness was a tad bit of a letdown, but overall it was an outstanding beer that I highly recommend and will seek out whenever I can find it. For an IPA fan this is about as good as it gets.

First had: on tap at Philadelphia Bar & Restaurant, Philly, PA

Cloudy orange-amber pour, with a finger or so of frothy white head; decent retention and lacing. Citrusy hops on the nose, underlying malt sweetness, and a bit of acetone. Homebrewish. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing. Taste is expectedly hoppy, yet a bit dulled down by a pervasive breadiness, notes of citrus pith and pine, for a drying bitter finish. Medium body, and not a bad selection overall.
