NICU (12) - Oregon, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Bottle purchased at By the Bottle in Vancouver, WA. Pretty tasty stuff, but the slight diacetyl (sp?) tinge kept growing as the beer warmed and left me with a slippery feeling in my mouth that I donít enjoy. The aroma was great and the appearance was clean, bright, and golden, but I had to ding it on the flavor and palate because of the diacetyl. Next time Iím in Bellingham Iíll certainly try it on tap, but Iíll be hesitant to buy bottles again unless I know theyíre fresh.

Tap @ Virginia Inn Tavern: Gold color with white head. Musty wet hop aroma with a musty, solid hoppy flavor. Not bad.

TheEpeeist (3545) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2015
22 oz bottle. Honey brown with bone foam. Nose is orange, pineapple, light musk and toffee. Medium body with a buzz finishing resiny. Taste is orange banana, pine and grapefruit peel. Solid for the style. The sweet banana notes draw me in for another sip. Iíd love to try the imperial version.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours orange copper with a modest off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with lots of grapefruit-like hop bitterness. Very thick flavor.

Draft pour at Beer Authority. Pours a thick, cloudy copper color with a fading, head. Hop front aroma. Initially sweet malt flavor with a long transition to a bitter hop finish. Maybe a bit too bitter, if your preference is anything like mine. A pretty standard IPA here. Good overall.

Gold pour with creamy white head. Aroma is caramel malt, bread, and citrus hops. Sweet malt and sweet floral hops on the flavor. Medium bodied with ok carbonation, and a good floral/citrus bitter. very ok beer

Orange color, nice foam. Hoppy aromas very hidden...balanced weak taste of hops and malt. Some caramel malt. Not impressive.
