COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Finally an American-style IPA from us... This beautiful red-orange ale has a full malty body balanced by a fruity apricot/grapefruit nose. Mounds of dank Summit hops in the whirlpool and dry-hop additions provide a deliciously quenching finish to this East meets West-coast ale.

Lightly hazy amber beer, good white head. Palate is light and dry. Fine minerally carbonation. Odd flavour of hazlenuts! The hops are mellow pine and citrus. Light caramel. Different!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2008
Bottle from Chevy Chase Liquors, Washington
The bottle was leaking a few drops during the flight, anyway the original carbonation was preserved, and in the end it doesn’t seem to have suffered it; but I let it settle only for one day.
It pours a hazy (later cloudy) amber color, with a big stiff head. It has some caramel flavor, medium body, some hop aroma, more hop flavor, little hop resins, in all a correct bitterness. Quite good.

harrisoni (13599) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle at RBESG 09 Sheffield. Cloudy gold, thick rocky beige head. Just too yeasty, metallic and gushing. Jesus, tha’s hoppy. Hop juice. Even for me that was just too hoppy.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 (2/25/08, 750ml bottle) Enormous off-white head that takes a great while to dissipate, eventually taking the appearance of an ice cream float, atop murky copper body. Aroma is medium sweet, juicy grapefruit, some pineapple, orange, light melon. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit with moderate sharpness, floral/orange, light caramel. Medium body, some creaminess, chewiness, light acidity. (8/3/7/4/15)

(12/8/07, 750ml bottle, thanks Stine) Enormous off-white head that fades to a nice lacing, atop cloudy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, juicy grapefruit, some orange, cantaloupe. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, some orange. Medium body, some effervescence, light acidity, chewy. (8/3/7/4/15)

Grand Tasting @ The Harlequin, Sheffield.
Pours muddy orange with a giant, frothy, white head. Big gusher. Aroma has powerful hops, yeast, piney, grapefruit. High carbonation, rather dry mouthfeel. Flavour has sweetish resiny hops, light maltiness and quite harsh bitterness. Fine beer, though.
