Pours a nice golden straw color with a one finger head. Very clear. Head reduces to a thin layer that persists throughout. Great citrus hop aroma with grapefruit notes. Solid hop bite that is balanced by a gentle malt backbone. Overall a great hop forward IPA that is one of the top on my list.

12oz bottle at ballast point. Pours thin with a finger of head. Head disappears pretty fast. Golden yellow appearance small steady bubbles. Taste definitely has bite. Hops, citrus, grapefruit, with a slight alcohol taste. Piney on the back end. Pallet is light and somewhat smooth. Overall great beer. I wish this was easily attainable.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2012 Draft. Hazy gold with a small frothy head. Very nice full flavored IPA. Nice dry citrus notes from the hops. Lots of citrus with. Mid to light roasty flavors. Lemon grass. Cinnamon. Dark wildflower honey. Fresh watercress. Somehow crisp and syrupy at the same time. Well blended. Hop bitterness throughout but a soft enough finish. Nice. Nice. Nice. A must try!

The Beer, the Myth, the Legend. After waiting/searching 2 years for this brew, I finally got my mouth on it. Great IPA! Wonderful citrus notes in the nose and in the taste. Nice sticky white lacing. Beautiful orange-gold color. A must have to Hop Heads.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2013 re-rate with a more mature palate:
Pours and looks the same as I described below, but the taste is nowhere near as mind blowing. 3.6
Pours a clear light amber with a generous 4 finger head. Very citrusy aroma, grapefruit, mango. Taste follows suit, very sticky hops, very bitter. A beautiful beer. 4.3
