cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Big fresh hoppy nose: citrus, apricot, dank. Flavor goes citrus, apricot, a touch of malt, ctirus zest and finishes on a solid bitter note.

jdskinns (209) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a white frothy head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, and with a little citrus. Taste follows the aroma pretty much exactly. Dry and bitter finish. A nice warming feeling once it hits the stomach. Sticky, smooth and very good.

JoeinDahlem (1362) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2010
Bright and clear golden-orange beer with big tropical fruit-hop nose (Centennial?). Fairly sweet and juicy with a moderate bitterness that is restrained enough to preserve drinkability. Finishes a bit dry, thankfully. Great stuff.

KyotoLefty (7140) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 2, 2010
Bottled. Nice malty aroma with earthy hops and a bit of grass. Great balance. Nice caramel, earthy, grassy hops, malt forward with apricots and peaches. Smooth and round, very drinkable. Not surprising, but tasty and well done.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Pours a clear copper orange with very little head. What is there is a frothy white that quickly dissipates. Aroma is a lot of woodsy notes. Aroma is fresh earth, bark and spruce and undertone of vanilla and caramel. Flavor is spruce and a mix of a caramel bread flavor on the tongue. Body is light with active carbonation with a hit of creaminess to it.

WisconsinBeer (714) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear pale orange color with minimal carbonation and a thin head. Flavor is pale malts, slightly toasted and fruity. Slight notes of chalk and minerals in the body. Hops are soft and floral. Smooth and easy drinking. A pretty solid beer, the 7.5 abv is a surprise.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 30, 2010
(12oz bottle). Pours clear copper color with nice 1 finger head. Nice lacing. Aroma of some hop funk, florals and citrus. Taste is bitter with a slight sourness/sweetness. Medium bodied with oily/thin texture. Finish is bitter and long. Its a well-crafted beer although a bit thin.

foosnbrews (145) - Parker, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Beer poors golden with a constant white head throughout the beer. Aroma is citrus dominated with a distinct malty bready characteristic. Flavor is medium sweet and medium high bitterness with hints of alchol coming through. Mouthfeel is nice, medium/low stickyness and a good fizz and bitterness that lingers. Overall this is an excellent go-to IPA. Wish this was available in CO

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Clear amber orange; light head. Pungent hop aroma. Medium bitterness. Caramelly sweetness. Body is on the thicker side. This is quite a nice IPA, but honestly I had built up some kind of high expectations and was expecting something else. I feel like this kind of IPA has been done before a lot.
