Gorgeous golden ale with beautiful white head. Perfect balance of sweet hoppy citrus at the front end with nice punchy bitter on the back end. (22oz Bottle / Walnut Liquorette, Walnut, CA / March 2012)

Just a fantastic blend of hop and citrus tastes, with a smooth finish. This one lives up to the hype.

Bottle to snifter. Looks good; burnt-orange. Smells good too; nice and hoppy. Tastes very nice; one of the better IPAs Iíve come across. Mouthfeel is good too. Overall, a very nice beer (although a little pricey at $14.99 a 6er).

Shared at Jackie-Oís. Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Appearance is a hazy gold with a frothy white head of foam. Aroma is citrus, floral, and herbal hops. Not much in the way of a malt bill. Taste is medium to high bitter, and just a light sweetness. I really enjoyed this and Iím glad to see this is starting to show up in Ohio. Thank you for sharing.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
So, I never tasted it because it was pretty expensive for cheapy. However, I gor a sample of 5 oz for $2, go figure and I donít even care for IPA; its there so I tried it as long as it was not over $2. Nice lacing from the start. Yes, big bitter on tap pour. Large and dull unsharp hops impacts. Tho not real sharp it is on stupid style. Looks like a pale lager fer sure.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle with HUGE thanks to peteinSD! Thanks Peter! Aroma has notes of citrus, grapfruit, tropical fruits and caramel malts. Medium amber orange hue with an average white head that mostly diminished and left good lace. Flavor is medium sweet and heavy bitter. Palate is medium bodied with average carbonation. Overall a stellar IPA. Great nose and perfect in every other way. Very very good. Loved this one.

Bottle. With Pat. Last of a 6 pack purchased about a month ago. Much of the delicious hoppiness has faded. This is so good when fresh. Aroma is currently very onion. Was much more citrus and pineapple previously. Nice clean golden color with great head and solid lacing.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2012 On tap at the IJTBP. Pours a nice golden amber with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is pine, some citrus and floral notes. Taste is pine, citrus and grapefruit with a little bitterness before completely mellowing out. Almost no trace of the 7.0%. Excellent!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2013 Pours golden orange color with nice lacing. Aroma of citrus and pine hops. Taste reminds me more of a double IPA than just an IPA. Big bold taste with big mouthful. Tons of piney hops and alcohol with a bitter spicy bite at the end.
