Citrus and pine dominate the nose with hints of honey malts. Pours light amber or a darker blond. Hoppy but slightly sweet, with hints of maple. It finishes dry, not bad!

Clear amber with a wispy 1" head. Nice spicy hop, yeasty aroma. Medium body. A lightly sweet malt flavor is quickly ushered out by a spicy hop bitterness. A solidly balanced, easy drinking pale ale here.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2009 Pours a clear copper with a foamy off-white head that lasts a while. Lots of citrus in the aroma, most notably grapefruit. Malty on first taste, and then the hops come through. A good, not overdone, IPA.

Bright amber, leaning toward orange, big vanilla head. Sweet caramel malt with a load of fruity hop character (tangerine, lychee), and a long bitter finish. Deeeelish!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to FlacoAlto for the bottle (12oz). Clear orange color with a medium head. Has a best by date of 6/26/08, and if it hadnít been for that fact, I would have thought it was a little old. The caramel outshines everything here. I donít get any of the citrus alluded to in the Commercial Description. Just a little floral hops with a huge bitter finish.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very hoppy, tasty West Coast IPA, my favorite type. One of the better, if not the best IPA, available in a bottle in Las Vegas.
Plenty of kick and fruity/Hoppy after-taste.

Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007. A hazy amber beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma is sweet grassy and grapefruity. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of hops lending it notes of grass and grapefruits, the grapefruit also gives it a slight acidity, before the dry bitter finish sets in.
