Simply put I would not go out and buy a bunch of this because it is just a little too bitter for me and it needs more of the fruity qualities I taste. That may make it more palletable for me. Not exactly up to my tastes.

Hazy, deep golden colour with a thick white head. Awesome hoppy aroma - primarily grapefruit softened by floral notes. Taste is amazing - bitterness up front, but not at all overwhelming. Bitterness is accented perfectly by sweet grapefruit and orange flavors. Nice bitter finish. Great IPA!

Very bitter, heavy hopped beer. Great smell and amber color. A little too bitter for me, but great for hop beer drinkers.

A nice clear(ish) dark amber color. A slightly fruity and slightly hoppy aroma. A rather fruity taste with not much of a hoppy punch. A mild aftertaste.

Poured from a 16oz can into a Duvel tulip glass. Packaged date reads "7/13/2015."
Aroma - Sweet, bright citrus (clementine, semi-ripe orange). Faintly floral. Earth
Appearance - Deep orange-yellow (light amber?). Creamy, white head. Thick lacing rims the top of the glass.
Taste - Sweet, citrusy hops give-way to earthy, resiny hops. Citrus fruit rind also present. Hops, hops, hops. Orange and hop resin flavors linger on the pallet.
Palate - Medium bodied, oily/ resiny at times. Dry finish.
Overall - I short changed this beer when I originally had it. Though the tall boy can is inviting, a glass is much more befitting. Let it breath. There’s too much citrus not to!

incredibly strong hop bouquet yet not brutally bitter. an excellent IPA, maybe the best I’ve had. orange color, off white abundant head that is fizzy rather than heavy or creamy (yet remains a surprisingly long time for such a head) and releases abundant hop.

Whoa. I took a sip, fell back through the window and landed on a cloud of hoppiness. This beer is extremely fruity and balanced. I felt like I was drinking the air in a mexican fruit market. Beautiful beer but....what is with the label? Hemmingway symbolism or what? May I suggest... a big castle, surrounded by knights and giant hops growing out of the mote with the "lady of the beer" somewhere in there. It’s time to display a great American beer with some round table honor! Alright I’m done.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2007 Fruit/Flower aroma. Citrus hints with a heavy bitter hop taste. One of my favorites. Now available everywhere.
