Hazy amber beer. Frothy white head. Rich hoppy nose. Very slightly soft palate. Deep rich orange marmalade and grapefruit hops well joined up with a little creamy malt and aniseedy alcohol. Easy drinking rich IPA.

Bottle. Amber orange crystal clear with tan head. Citrus upfront aroma. Awesome bitterness. Lingers in the mouth for a while. I swear it turned cloudy after awhile. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2012
A clear golden colored beer, with a off white head. The aroma of hops, fruits like citrus with malt, flowery. The taste of nice hop bitter with fresh fruits. The aftertaste is nice bitter with some sweet.

Only dissed the aroma because it was a bit misleading with its agressive hops. Love the big West Coast hoppiness. Super piney and citrus immediatley, astringent as hell in the most beautiful way.

erickok (3795) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 27, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2014 Light brown, big rocky white head. Hugeo hop profile, fresh and piney. Very American. Smooth palate, quite sweet with sharp hop tones. Not balanced at all but it still works. Tasty brew. (Sample from 75cl bottle, thanks Menno!) Re-rate. Golden light misty body, stable head. Heavy hops, sharp citric and resin. Alcoholic, bitter, bit simplistic though. Drinks okay, not quite needs the abv, could get an ipa with as much satisfaction without the alcohol. (On tap at Blind Tiger)

RoyalFlushing (324) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - APR 22, 2012
on tap @ Urban Solace. Golden straw filled the glass with a small fluffy white head. Strong aroma includes pineapple and orange peel. Initial flavor is caramel maltiness, however, then the hops kick in. Well-balanced hops grab the palate’s attention without wrecking. Very enjoyable IPA with impessive aroma not quite matched in flavor.

mcberko (7219) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrusy and tropical fruits, some nail polish remover and caramel malts. Flavour of tropical fruits, paint thinner / nail polish remover, citrus, and caramel malts. Finishes with notes of orange, grapefruit, sweetness and bitterness. Solid IIPA.

califbeer69 (96) - California, USA - APR 6, 2012
Pours light copper color with an off white head. Aroma of grapefruit and citrus. Flavor of toffee, and caramel in front and citrusy hops in the middle and end. Also a lot of tangerine undertone. Well balanced.
