Sampled @ 9th AZ Strong Beer Festival. Copper color body with white head. Aroma and flavor was a good dose of citrus fruit. Cool and crisp on the palate. Will be in area next month hopefully will get to try full pint.

Medium copper pour with creamy white head and lace. Large grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit with hints of orange and medium malt, good bitter that fades quickly. A tad thin and watery,.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2009
On tap @ AZ Strong Beer Festival. Molten lava pour with a small steamy white head. Pretty damn tasty...and for a single IPA of only 6.5%, definitely holds its own against some IIPA’s @ the event. Very well balanced with pink grapefruit, orange peel and lemon zest followed by caramel and toffee. Not a ton of pine; just enough to impact the palate. NICE!!!

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2009
On tap at the AZ Strong Beer fest – my first from Nevada, and a good representation at that! Pours a clear dark gold with a small off-white head. The nose is ripe citrus and malt. The taste is ripe citrus, toffee, tart grapefruit and resin in the finish. Medium body -very good IPA.

mjg74 (2491) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 20, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2008 Tap at cafe. Medium golden in color upon pouring. Bitter citric aroma. Grapefruit flavored hoppiness. A little bit of pine needles. This is a decent IPA.

Dogbrick (8023) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2008
Sample at Chicago Brewing Co (they were out of their IPA, sampled at Big Dog’s later that day). This beer pours a clear yellow-amber color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and hops. Medium-bodied and moderately bitter with pine and citrus hops flavors, plus a touch of malt. The finish is hoppy with a lingering grapefruit and hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

No real powerful aroma - hint of hops but that is it. Hoppy decent flavor. Light pale yellow thin pour. Watery texture. Just average - but not horrible. Flavor is hoppy and not too soapy. Overall, not bad.

jcwattsrugger (11079) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2008
on tap-pours an off white head that laces and yellow/gold color. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is bitter citrus hops-lemon/pine, secondary light malt-some caramel sweetness. OK carbonation.

lb4lb (2532) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Medium gold colored pour with a semi-hopy aroma. Not as hoppy as some reviewers mentioned, at least when I had it. Taste was mild bitterness, with less hop flavor. I found the hop harvest to be a strong flavored, and better IPA. Needed more malty sweetness and hops to make it pop a bit.
