HighWine (955) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Light copper color pour, big white head. Nose is a sweet, pale malt. Not your typical IPA at all. Taste is a smooth roast coffee with some floral hops in the background. Although it is not typical it is very good. Medium palate with a moderately oily mouthfeel.

Can. Hazy amber color with a large head. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon and grass. Not too sweet in the taste - a little dried honey in the malt. Bitter, grassy, slightly metallic finish.

Tin. Poured clear dark orange with thick white lasting head. Strong aroma of orange, tangerine and hop. Very hoppy flavor, well balanced with malt. Lasting bitter finish. Worth seeking out.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Cloudy yellowish color with a sparse head. The aroma has some sweet floral and light citrus hops to it. The taste is very well balanced and smoothly bitter. The finish is fantastic, a nice refreshing floral and light fruit burst.

trevor211 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Pour from the can - golden orange with a decent, dense head. Tons of citrus hops on the nose, but it isnít acerbic - itís actually a pretty sweet aroma, with more mandarin than grapefruit or pine resin. Really nice on the nose. Flavor is... not bad. Actually tastes a little like pine. It isnít too bitter, but the hops just donít shine in here - seems a bit stale, and there are some odd lactic / funky notes that make me think this was a bad batch. Infected? Not sure. If so, itís still not bad. If not, this just isnít that great.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 6, 2009
12oz can at Alchemist in JP. Pours a copper color with a small white head. Nose is like a pine forest, very sticky and syrupy and resiny. Plate is full and sticky as well. Flavors are caramel, piney, resiny, sticky hop notes and sugars.

malrubius (2015) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 6, 2009
12 ounce can in goblet. Pale hazy orange with nice dense head and lace. Fruity piney yeasty hop aroma with a touch of bandaid. Mildly fruity sweet nondescript flavor with decent fresh hop resiny dry finish. Not bad. Failrly mild. Well-balanced.
