Oransay Amber golden color with minimal head. Fruity aroma with some raisin scent Not enough hop aroma for my liking. I would like a bit more hop To malt ratio balance. A bit boozy I like the 60 minute better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice aroma of pine and hops with some hints of lemon./citrus. Nice clear amber color/ thin tan head. Nice rich malt up front, sweet caramel. Nice bitterness sets in. Fresh hoppy flavors noticeable. Some warm alcohol burn on the finish. Nice balance. Crisp mouthfeel. Solid.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Remarkably clear, copper color. Aroma is of pine and citrus, though not as strong as I anticipated. Nice, full body, slightly thick for an IPA. Really enjoy that. Sticky on the lips ... always a welcome trait.

I’ve been enjoying this for years, including having a sixtel keg as my first on my kegerator. Into a Delirium Noel glass, pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of light malts, grains, slight fruit rind, fresh bread. Medium carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of rich grains, white grapefruit rind, straw hops, light malts, slight citrus and spice. Overall full bodies, flavorful, and quite tasty.

Keg at the hanging bat. Pours hazy amber, nose is sweet toffee, piney, taste is similar, dry, sweet, fruity, much better after it warmed.

This is a big bruiser of a beer. Big hops in the front, middle, back and in between. Malt notes and hints of raisin and fruit. Fairly complex for an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a copper color with a big and fluffy off-white head and lacing. The aroma is strong floral hops and biscuit. The taste is big on hops with some sweetness and some bread. It’s nice and dry with lots of bitterness. This was very tasty.
