Beautiful sunset orange color, two finger head; aroma is mango, peach, lemon, grape, and some pineapples, but follows up with an abrupt metallic taste and nuts; lively carbonation with an oily texture, dry bitter herby finish

Wow, I can’t believe how highly rated this beer is... I mean it’s good, but I don’t know if its this good.... Aroma is citrus hops, flavor is dry but not as dry as you might expect from a West Coast IPA... Definite citrus and fruity notes, nice bitter finish... Nice....

Hazy orange with a medium white head. Nice hoppy aroma with mango, pineapple and orange. The taste was balanced and nicely fruity. Not extremely bitter but very enjoyable. I liked this one!

Pours a light nearly transparent gold. A thin head retains well as the beer is drunk. The hop flavor is pronounced citrus and is crisp and refreshing for an IPA. Overall I think the beer is a tad overrated, but is none the less a strong example of the category.

Pours gold with a thick white head. Aroma is pine and exotic tropical fruits. Taste is a mellow blend of pine, mango, and light malts. The hop resins linger in the aftertaste. Pleasant IPA & good session beer.

(bottle). Not overhyped or over-hopped. This is a world class IPA. Hazy gold complexion with thick long-lasting head. Flavors include ripe fruits of apricot and mango. Smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Refrigerated bottle set out on the counter for a little bit, compliments of sparky. Pours translucent deep golden with light orange hue and medium bright white head that dissapates quickly. Some lacing, medium body, low carbonation, and light estery aroma (mostly citrus and a hint of pine). Taste is citrus, light pine, and light bitter hop finish. Back to back comparision with Bells Two-Hearted ale, so close but this edges out two-hearted ale.

Originally reviewed: 7/23/09. I was so pumped to see bottles of this at my local store. Whenever a beer has this high of a rating, I wonder if it really is that good. This lives up to the hype incredibly.
Poured this into my tulip glass. Pours a dark orange with a good inch-sized ivory head on top. Decent retention, but little lacing. The scent on this brew is phenomenal! Huge orange, tangerine, pineapple, lemon scents all over this. Absolutely wonderful smell.
The mouth is crisp and wonderfully bubbly. Excellent for gulping. Flavor is big citrusy notes with some bitter grapefruit, sweet oranges, and tangy lemons. Finishes bitter and a bit on the drying side. There’s some sweet notes in there that balance this out well. The alcohol is pretty well hidden but makes itself known near the end of the bottle. Oh yes. I could drink this all night. This isn’t as bold and in your face as I was expecting. This is just an unbelievably good IPA. Freaking highly recommend.
