nuplastikk (4568) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Filtered orange-tan. Big, steady off-white/beige head. A fairly reasonable IPA. Pretty well balanced with some nice citrus hop characteristics. Toasty, some fruity butterscotch tones. Not world class by any means, but captures the style. One dimensional and somewhat soapy.

AWISLguy (1341) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with no carbonation. Aroma is fresh fruit, pine with some floralness. Taste is much maltier than the aroma, but also nice bitter fruit and syrupy resin. Nice flavor. Great hoppy burp. Finishes medium strong and quite bitter. Nice effort!

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Draught at the BrewPub: Aroma of malt, caramel, Earth, leaves, and hops. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, off-white head diminished but lasted throughout. A few small and medium-sized particles. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of caramel, light hops, light Earth, and leaves. Medium body. Average, lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, lightly bitter, caramel, malt, light hop, and light Earth finish is slightly dry.

cbfobes (2324) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 15, 2011
On tap at brewpub, pours a clear copper with a thin head and some spotty lacing, the aroma has a light hoppy kick with some tropical fruit mixed in, the flavor isn’t as intense I was hoping for but still had some citrus in the finish, kind of a thin overall, not bad.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 16, 2009
On tap at the Delafield Brewhaus. Amber with a thin tan head. Aroma of pine, caramel and grapefruit. Taste of pine, grapefruit and sweet malt with a piney resinous finish. Mildly abrasive and some vegetal qualities come through.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Copper colored ale with a decent slightly off-white head. Lots and lots of citrus in this one with very little malt backbone. Somehow fails at being bitter. Still tasty.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2009
On tap at Delafield Brewhaus. Good pine and floral aromas. Daeker copper body with off white head and lacing covered entire pint glass. Texture medium bodied and good citrus flavor with some dry bittering going on. Not cool and crisp but decent IPA refreshment.
