Very nice IPA! Served on tap in a shaker pint. Coppery in color with and off white head, bear clear. Nice aromas of citrus: grapefruit and mandarin orange, some crackery malt. Big juicy citrus flavors with a nice bitter kick against bready malt.

Poured into a tumbler from a can. Rich amber in color. White head, thick at first dissipating. Always present. A lot of resin, pine needles, forest. Overall, good IPA, very straightforward, true to the style.

Certainly a harvest ale, but well hopped so none of that cloyingly sweet mealtimes. Good carbonation and a light copper color. Very refreshing beer. Tastes like Fall.

Purchased a six pack of this delicious brew in Hershey PA near the brewery.

Pint glass pours a clear golden yellow with a one finger white foam cap that settles to a ring

Aroma of citrus hops

Taste of citrus, pine

Very Nice hop bite

Good tasty beer

Full of hops and has a good bitterness like a NE IPA. Also some more tropical fruit smells and pineyness. Decent beer for those in Pennsylvania that like hops.

Look: Clear, deep amber with a tall, creamy, tan head.
Smell: Tropical fruit, bubblegum, and sweet mango with some pine and onion hop aromas.
Taste: Less sweet and a bit milder than expected. Grapefruit rind. Hints of fruit sweetness, but mostly a generic, dry hop bitterness/astringency. A bit more malt sweetness as it warms up.
Feel: Light and crisp with seltzery dryness.
Overall: Dry, dank, and bitter. This is a nice change of pace from super sweet/juicy IPAs.

12 oz bottle. Pours orange with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and tropical fruit. Body is full and crisp. Herbal hops dominate the palate with bready malt and tropical fruit in the background. Finish is long and very hoppy. Nice brew.

I got a bottle of this off the single shelf from a Kroger just down the road from south metro ice. It poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had pine and floral notes. The taste had bitter pine at the front and end of the drink.....with subtle fruit sweetness in between. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

Pours a dark copper, light orange with medium carbonation. Lots of hops on the nose and the body is much the same with just enough body/malt to keep up with the hops. Hop profile is a bit all over the place but the beer is still enjoyable.

Poured a dark amber with a one finger frothy off-white head that dissipated a bit but generally stayed. Moderate lacing was present. Aroma was floral and honeydew melon with a hint of pine. Tastes of grapefruit, malt and honey. Moderate carbonation and body. Nicely balanced and crisp.
