1 pint glass on draft at the brewery. Light orange color with a small head. A little on the light tasting side with some grapefruit flavor. Could be a a little bit hoppier.

On tap: Pours a cloudy orange color with a large white head that is fully lasting. Amazing lacing. Aromas were mostly the fruity hops (oranges and lemons) as the glass emptied you were able to get a better sense of the malt as well. Flavor was fruity hops at first (grapefruit, lemons) and finished far spicier (pepper). Lots of hops in this one, finishes as biiter as you would expect, and quite dry.

JoshuaB (474) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Draft: Not much aroma to speak of, could have been the insanely smoky surroundings however. Was served way cold. Poured a golden orange with a ring of white head that give decent lacing. Taste was intially hops, but the hops and bitterness did not make a great presence overall. There was quite a bit of malty sweetness at the end and some yeast actually in the taste. Didnt really care for it too much, hoever it was somewhat different, so I gave a couple extra points.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 15, 2005
Draft at brewery. Pours an orange color with white head. Nose is pure hopps, some hints of citrus. Mouth is pure hopps and a great earthy flavor, with a nice bitterness in the end.

Pailhead (5097) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2005
On tap: Nice citrus hop aroma. Cloudy dull orange with a white head and very nice lacing. Kind of a watery sweetness up front with a nice citrus hopped finish. A decent IPA.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2005 Tap: hazy golden yellow with decent head. Nice lacing. Aroma is all citrus hops and maybe a little floral. Flavor was well balanced malt and hops, a little surprising but good. Decent IPA.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - OCT 2, 2004
Tap. Fairly well done IPA. Hazy light amber in color. Nice whitish head with decent lacing. Citrus hops in the aroma although not overpowering some malt nose. Medium bodied, decent balance between malt and hops.

Drank this beer after it had sat for 10 minutes and had warmed up a bit. Very aggressive hoppiness with a maltiness that was quite pleasing. Do not drink this right off they serve it to cold. LET IT WARM UP!!!

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2007 Light amber color with lots of light orange/straw yellow. Again, little head, but tons of lacing. Served ice cold. Aroma is quite lacking due to the serving temperature, but citrus cascades is there. Sediment again thankfully. Begins very dry and bitter with (surprise) tons of cascades. I was ready to write this off as another ultra-unoriginal highly hopped American IPA, but as it warmed, a decent roasted malt came out, very subtle but impressive. On the finish there was a good mix of yeast and malt and the hops stuck with me and were quite clean and fresh. High quality beer, needs to be served warmer. I’d say medium to full body even. A great aftertaste, bitter but leaves a nice clean malty finish. The best i’ve had here so far. Again, I will have to rerate after I have tried this beer at a more appropriate temperature.
