12 oz bottle from a trade with dkachur. pours orange with a nice tan head. very good IPA appearance. aromas are nice and hoppy, mostly citrus hops but some piney aromas too, there is also caramel malt sweetness. flavours are similar to the aromas. very tight and well balanced. not very big or bossy, just a well crafted IPA.

Dogbrick (8264) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Sample at Alan’s HSC initation. This beer is a clear orange color with a compact off-white head that burns away slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma is moderately bitter with hops backed up by caramel and earthy malt. Medium-bodied with a hoppy character. Notes of caramel and malt along with a bit of citrus too. The finish is hoppy and lingering. Decent all around.

ChainGangGuy (4392) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy, shimmering orange body with a small, wipsy, white head. Smell: Floral, leafy, even spicy hop character on a foundation of pale maltiness. Taste: Sweet, candied pale malts initially. Overall, a tangy hop character, with a number of leaves, flowers, maybe a few drops of spiced lemon water pass by the palate. Medium-high bitterness that lingers beyond the bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A tasty, flavorful APA.

Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2008
pours a clear gold copper with full white head, smooth citrus hop aroma, light palate with bitterness slowly arising in the front, wet aftertaste, not a bad session of a pale, but light on its depth.
