imdownthepub (11132) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2010
Tinned, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Bright orange amber with white head, carbonated. A resinous note hits the nose and then into a single dimensional, bitter hopped beer. Quite sharp and tinny from the pasteurisation, little balance, so its a case of picking out the hops.

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Pours orange with white head, aroma is thick hops and a bit of sweetness. Taste is strangely sweet, citrusy, finishes caramel sweet and ends bitter. Very nice IPA!

tmfc (2) - USA - JAN 21, 2010 does not count
an oustanding blend of drinkability, body and complexity for an ipa...pours a nice frothy head that lingers and maintains a creaminess without being over carbonated...the hops are distinct and well balanced with the malt, maintaining a mild fruity bitterness without being too sweet...this may be the perfect session ipa

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2010
An amber color with faint head. Mild hop aroma. A slightly caramel body with hop balance and mild bitterness.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Canned. Amber with orange head. Aroma is sweet citrusy (grapefruit) but also grassy. Flavor is the same but ends so hop bitter it takes no prisoners.

craftbeerdesign (2207) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2010
pours a deep golden with a big 2 finger fluffy white head... floral hop aromas... good in depth, but not overpowering the way I like it... medium bitter body with the hop presence up top... soft creamy sides... some pine... nice bitter finish... very drinkable smooth and bitter IPA. + its in a can!

ChazMania (658) - Pasadena, California, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Can poured into pint glass. Great color on this, amber-orangish. Mild sweet aroma, good lacing on glass. Good straight up IPA with nice floral hoppy bitterness.

elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Can. Pours dark orange-caramel color, clear with nice frothy lacing. Aroma of buble gum, cedar and pine. Palate is buttery, medium in thickness, with a long finish. Flavor holds nice burnt caramel, butterscotch, heavy piney hops, then a late burst of fruit. A bit tiring for my tastes, but a this beer has a bold, unique, spicy flavor. Unique and satisfying.

lobonator (19) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2010
Very assertive aroma. Mostly of caramel malt. Malt surprisingly dominates more than hops in aroma. Appearance good. Nice clear dark amber. Foam should last longer for an IPA however. Taste is complex and while bitter wins at the end, complemented by caramel along the way. Hard to pin down! Very slight negative vegetal trace. Dry palate. Overall, a drinkable IPA.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
LilBeerDoctor (3509) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Can. Pours a clear deep orange with a thick off-white head. Aroma of piney, grassy hops, some citrus and tropical fruits. Flavor of caramel malt and light citrus upfront with a bitter hops finish. Decent IPA, rather on the bitter side. 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]
