blankboy (6633) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2008
Bottle (12oz). Pours a slightly hazy orange-copper with an average size frothy off-white head. Decent aroma of floral hops, bready caramel malt and fruit. Flavour of caramel malt, floral hops and citrus fruit with a finish that’s more bitter then I expected, a little spicy too (pepper mainly). Alcohol well hidden. Average bodied. A little underrated, this is a fine IPA, it’s just not awesome -- If this were from Canada it would be rated higher.

bhensonb (12596) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Pours a darkish orange amber color with an ok white head. Excellent floral aroma over some caramel. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is rather fruity and floral, with light biting spice, and some astringency. Finish is astringent, though not all that bitter. It’s a really tasty ale, badly underrated, and quite floral in the end. Hooah!

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Brewed in the USA !!! Pours a nice amber color with a med white head. The aroma is of hops, citrus, and a hint of pine needles. The taste is pretty much the same, but i might add a slight trace of pepper. It was a bit on the watery side but still pretty good. :)

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Bottle courtesy of summer SS 08, Mild pine aroma. Clear bubbly orange body with pale white head. Exelant lacing. Flavor of light grapefruit and lacking the crispness of an ipa. Great citrus grapefruit aftertaste lingering on palate. Man the aftertaste was better than the flavor odd. Thanks Alan.
