Overall Nicely balanced beer, good aroma notes of citrus. Thin head, slightly thinner palate than I like. A good session beer.

Tap at Liar’s Club. Clear orange-gold pour with a frothy white head. Big nose of pine and citrus, but light. Taste was exceptionally clean. For an IIPA, a malt-muted bitterness but huge hop flavor. Lots of grapefruit and resin, without the stickiness. Excellent balance with a nice bitter finish.

Draft at O’Briens: Nose of oranges and pine, very fresh and clean. Clear golden amber color. Creamy hop filled flavor with a big body and peach notes. Nice finish, fresh and drinkable for this beefy of a DIPA.

Draft, 2005 PP Strong Ale Fest. Clear golden yellow pour with a decent head. Large very fresh hop aroma, grapefruit and citrusy, and a little grassy. Man this beer smelled great! Sweet caramel malts with a lot of grapefruit hops. Decent bitter finish.

Very Very clear AND I am told it is NOT filtered. That note ensures the full mouthfeel and excellent hop aroma. Nice malt flavor with a slight sweet malty flavor, I like the way that adds to balance of hop to malt ratio. Exceptional Brew

Awesome clear straw copper color. Lemon citrus Cenntenial type of hop aroma great pour nice bubbly head and perfecto carbination which brought out the hoppy nose. Dry thick mouthfull that matched the hoppy nose. Great to NOT have that caramel burnt flavor in so many of these styles. The malt was there but did not overdue the hops. A characteristic that I enjoy in this style. I give this brew an A+++++++++++++
