This beer poured a dark copper to amber color, and was topped by a 1 inch off white head. The aroma has a nice herbal note up front, followed quickly by some grapefruit and light caramel. The flavor is blended nicely together. More of the herbal, grass quality. The grapefruit rounds out nicely into more of an orange character. Nice, sharp bitterness midway through the drink that lasts into the finish. The mouth feel is slightly sharp, a little heavy. Very nice drinkability. Great beer, I can’t wait until it is more widely available.

Had it on draught at Iron Barley. The Tap Handle called it "5-day IPA" with a the picture of a hop cone. The color is straw-like and cloudy, possibly copper, with a nice white head. The aroma is a nice spicy-citrus and very pungent. Flavor is grassy and piney, its obviously dry-hopped and finished a bit to piney for my taste. The upfront bitterness is very nice and the grain backs it up nicely. No real alcohol taste, but it would probably be overtaken by the hop flavor anyway. There is just enough body to provide balance and it goes down smooth.

12 oz bottle with no label pours cloudy light copper color, aroma of pine and citrus, grapefruit, citrus hoppy flavors, nice off white head with small bubbles that leaves good lacing in my glass, some malty sweetness to balance the loads of hops, medium body with a thick and sticky mouthfeel, great to see O'fallon putting out an IPA, I am looking forward to having this available in bottles for sale.

Pours a deep golden brown with a huge off-white head that settles into sticky clumps. The head remains through the entire drink and left lots of lacing on the walls of the glass.

The smell is a strong piny hop note, full of oils and spice. There's a nice pungent hop attack to this nose - nothing subtle about it.

Flavor is very similar - it's a hop monster that's for sure! Some citrus notes but primarily flavors of pine and a light floral perfume... Spicy peppery finish really gives this IPA a sharp tang. Rather mild grain notes would be the only complaint here - there's a bit of a sweet malt note but it's pretty well overpowered by the hops. Not a bad thing as the hops are wonderful but just a tad unbalanced.

Mouthfeel is spot on. Medium bodied brew with plenty of carbonation left over after the foamy head. Very mild oily coating on the tongue us cleaned up nicely by the combination of bubbles and hop bitterness. Nice dry finish with lots of hop echoes.

A very drinkable IPA though apparently not widely available at the moment... This was provided by Big Love and seems to be a part of OFallon's experimental bottling. No more experimentation needed - this one is just right!
