Bright copper orange color in the glass with a medum head. It has an aroma of pine and citrus. There is also some hops that come through. Taste is great. Big bitter bite but has so much flavor it is well balanced. There is grapefruit and a earthiness to it. What I like the most is the creaminess it has. Great finish.

Mora2000 (6052) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2012
The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has some candy and resin hops, with some biscuit malt thrown in. The flavor is very similar. I get some bitter pine and resin from the hop notes, as well as some brown sugar and orange citrus notes. There is a good amount of malty sweetness, which is mixed with some strong hop flavor and a medium amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Almost clear golden decent head, fairly piney and citrusy aroma, grapefruit, flavors are similar with just a bit more malt than the aroma would dictate, leaves a bit of an astringent finish... fullish bodied...

A - Pours a clear golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is full of grapefruit, pineapple, orange, and citrus hope with a bit of pine and some caramel and biscuit malts. T - Starts off with grapefruit, pineapple, mango, orange, and citrus hops with some bitterness and some caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine hops and more bitterness comes through with some biscuit malts. The finish is a mix of grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, and pine hops with some bitterness, sweet caramel hops, and a bit of booze. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. Really nice overall balance with a good hop profile and bitterness throughout.

Pours hazy golden amber with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet and citrusy...pineapple and orange...cream soda dum dums. Flavor follows suit...adds some bitter grapefruity notes. Mouthfeel is full and sticky with a very bitter grapefruit dry finish.

Keyes88 (60) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Pours a dark amber color with a thin tan head. Smells of citrus and tropical fruit. Going off the smell you know this is going to be delicious. Amazingly balanced IIPA, I shared this with my GF who can barely handle bitterness and this is smooth sailing for her. Semi-sweet malt blends nicely with all of the aroma to create a beautiful tropical flavor. Ends with bitter grapefruit flavor. Great body and carbonation is on the lighter side. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tybalt (212) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Cloudy golden color with fluffy white head. Aroma is of...um...carrots?....but I love it. Flavor is loaded with hops up front and then some hints of sour apple. Clean, slightly bitter finish.
