DragonStout (1410) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Thanx to Quake for sharing this at Tampa Gathering. Pours a hazy golden color.Nose is hoppy, citrus and floral. Flavor is a full onslaught of hops as it finished hoppy and my palate felt abused from the bitter hop assault.

Theis (15119) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2007
Bottle (Sune) at ØLklubben (2007 edition). Clear yellow (green glow) - white head. High hoppy, peach, light peppery, sweetness, light almond notes. Dry bitter finish. Very nice.

jake65 (3413) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Bottle: Pours an orange amber with a moderate sandy colored head. Nose is hoppy with citrus and florals, light sweetness. Flavor is crisp and hoppy, nice resiny citrus blend. Good malt presence. Decently hopped and overall very good, but I think the winter version wins the sibling rivalry. Thanks Jeremy!

bleeng (1668) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Bomber. Dark hazy gold with a thick, white viscous head. Hoppy, lemony, tart nose. Thick body and very malty. Well balanced with the strong hop profile with a little tartness, funkiness, and spice coming through. Very nice beer but one is enough.

oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Pours dark orange and cloudy with a thick fluffy head. Black cherry and citrus hop aroma. Musky Orange juice flavor with wonderful hop finish. Palate is a bit biting but nice and clean.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Bottle. Strong hop aroma, lots of pine with lighter citrus. Orange with a big white head. Highly drinkable, well balanced with good bitterness and a full-bodied palate.

BuckeyeSammy (609) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Decent lacing, bronze rusty color with a white head. Aroma is hoppy but have earthy, pine notes. Soo full flavored. The hoppy flavor of this IPA is extremely sharp. Very bitter. Hops just dominate the flavor of this one. Not syrupy at all. I feel like AleSmith tied to make the hoppiest beer they could.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Aroma slightly piney hops and fruit salad in a can. Poured amber/copper. Taste of slight spice, hops, and orange. Not as hoppy or complex as I expected. A bit thinner than the commercial description would leave you to believe. Still, a solid ale by any means.

jonas (6723) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2004
Sampled at the RBESP 2004
Critical pine and lemonpeel aroma. Cloudy orange colour, creamy low head. Overdose of hops - pine, lemon, wooden dry edge in the end. Grassy burps follow. Dry hop finish. Medium to light body. I would welcome slightly more balance to the body.

jercraigs (9722) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2006 July 2006 Summer 2005 edition. Golden orange with a small creamy beige head. (3+) Fairly resiny aroma, with mild malt. Solid resiny hop bitterness dominates in the flavour, and is quite pleasant. Average to medium palate (3+). Less citrus than I like in an IPA but the resiny character is really quite nice. 7/3+/7-8/3+/16 - 3.8<P>
