Thanks to InebriatedJoker for sending me these extras. 12oz bottle poured in a pint glass. The body is slightly hazy, orange in color, and is topped by a two finger white head. Very appealing. Upon diving my nose inside, mouthwatering tropical citrus hops take over my scent.

The taste is highlighted by a mixture of delicious grapefruit and juicy oranges. There might be a little sweet peach or mango hiding back there as well. This tasteful brew finishes with a light bitter punch and some balancing malts.

What a fantastic IPA with a nice light body that's extremely drinkable. It reminds me a bit of Odell's IPA and would be in my regular rotation if I had access to it.

Hazy orange with a couple fingers of white head

Smell is orange peel, loads of citrus (seems to be the Ohio IPA theme which is fine by me) A little passion fruit thrown in the finish.

Taste is oranges, lemons, grapefruit, pine resin, extremely fresh tasting hops, a little malt in the finish, a little lemon zest bitterness in the end

Mouthfeel is medium with nice carbonation and a semi dry finish.

Wow is all I can say about this beer. It is refreshing, flavor full and keeps me coming back for more and more... Would have a case at all times if I could get it.

Hazy golden orange body. The head looks super sticky and I just love the webs of lacing it spins down the glass.

Holy hell this beer can be smelled from a foot away. Orange and grapefruit, pine, and sticky icky. It has a sweet tropical fruit balance to the resinous pine.

Oranges and pine, oranges and pine. Very nice play between the two. It has a bready malt balance before breaking into a long and bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is creamy then sticky. It's very soft going down and costs the tongue with sticky residue.

Man, I really dig this IPA and hope to have it again. This beer has its shit together.
