Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip glass. Bottled date 1/20/12. Aroma: floral hops and citrus. pineapples and spruce Appearance: pale copper color and quite clear. very little head formed and faded quickly. Taste: medium sweet and lightly sour at first followed by medium bitter and medium sour. Palate: medium body and creamy texture. lively carbonation. bitter and sour finish but fades after a few seconds. Overall: a bit too much bitter and more sour than i prefer. the mouthfeel is great though. good sipping beer at 7.5%. probably wont pick this up again but dont regret my purchase.

Brilliantly ultrafiltered clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma is clean hops with some floral perfume. Taste is also very clean, with resinous bitterness and tangerine notes. Perhaps a bit too clean all around, but still an excellent beer. $2/12 oz ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours from a bottle with minimal lacy head, although what head there is seems to stay around. Aroma: Potent floral aroma blended with citrus. Color: Hazy yellow-orange Taste & Finish: Initial taste of citrus hops that extend into the finish. Although present, hoppy aftertaste is not overpowering and dissipates rather quick in comparison to some of its IPA counterparts.

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Pours a dark orange color with amber side tones. The aroma is like fresh crushed hops... resiny, cirtusy and beautiful. The flavors are a blast of bitter hops, balanced modestly with a caramel malt backbone. The hops really do dominate the flavor profile with grapefruit and pine. Really the best IPA Iíve had in a long time.

Pucker up buttercup cause this is a hopheads dream. I donít care what the description says, I didnt detect any malt aroma or taste. The only thing I wasnít thrilled about was the dedication to the grapefruit northwest hops, man oh man, by the end it got too much for me.

mkel07 (4880) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2012
Draught at Todd English Pub in Las Vegas. Amber to orange colour with an even layer of white foam that leaves good lacing on the glass. Great flavour with a big hop punch that lingers and leaves a big hoppy aftertaste.

Tasted at NYC Craft Beer Festival. Hop forward, very little malt sweetness. The hop profile leans towards citrus, plenty of grapefruit, oranges, some pine. Finishes clean and crisp with a powerful hop blast. Excellent.
