UPDATED: AUG 2, 2012 Lots of hop character on the nose, citrus, small amount of apricot, and a small amount of malty sweetness. Taste is very floral, and fresh, much like the smell. Malt is slightly sweet, caramel and flaccid. Nice amount of spicyness that you don’t really get in other IPA’s would be good with a cigar. Ending is dry hoppy, and a bit too bitter. All together, a nice daily drinker and a good representative of the style without being too pretentious.

Clear red golden with a tanned, fluffy head a finger thick. Fair lacing. Apricot, citrus (lime, lemon), flowers and malts aroma. Hoppy aromatic, spruce bitter lasting into a dry finish. Medium to full body. Noticable carbonation. Decent beer!

Túrbia i de color ambre, mostrant ja de primeres els efectes d’una malta caramelitzada que es farà patent en tots els aspectes de la cervesa. Té una crema densa i atractiva que minva en volum però que persisteix fins al final i que marca el got molt lleugerment. Les olors són molt atractives i relaxades, lluny de ser "monstruoses" ni hiperbòliques i no només basades en el llúpol. L’entrada és barrejada d’aromes suaus de malta caramelitzada que recorden la mantega i el caramel. Encara no hi veig el "mostre de llúpol" que anuncien els de FD i, dit sigui, me n’alegro, perquè de moment va molt bé la cosa. A mesura que la cervesa va calfant-se al got, les maltes van guanyant terreny als llúpols i el caramel tapa els cítrics. En boca perd una mica. Amb un cos mitjà i una carbonatació un pèl massa viva, els sabors són una mica menys atractius que els aromes, que eren complexos i complerts. Hi ha present el gust suau de la malta crystal i, de nou, l’amargor final del llúpol seca, però gairebé absent de sabors i aromes. Cert que deixa gaudir la malta, però li falta una mica de xispa. No per manca d’intensitat en l’amargor, sinó del poc joc que dóna.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2011 Orange-red, impressing white foam. Smells of orangezest, grapefruit, pine and aromatic hops. Round mouthfeel, loads of orange, good bitterness, but the malt is a little bit too caramalized and sweet for my palate. Long, quite sweet aftertaste

One of the best beers for my taste. I just love IPA style. Taste is very refreshing and it just calls to have it one more bottle :)

Pours a nice amber color, with a pleasant smell of hops. A slightly bitter taste that evaporates with the finish.

12 oz bottle: Pours a orange yellow with a nice head and ample CO2 release. Aroma is floral with a bit of citrus hops. Taste is a nice hoppy IPA with a good balance that masks the 7% alcohol well. not entirely complex, but a good IPA.

Very clear amber/orange color with several bubbles streaming to the top. Some bright yellow highlights at the bottom. A decent sized off white head that was kind of fluffy and soapy. Pretty good retention and some ok lacing. Very nice floral, citrusy, piny smell. Very nice dose of grapefruit notes. Smells perfume-like even. As the brew warmed the aroma became a bit more tame, but it was still well balanced and appropriate. Very solid amount of grapefruit citrus along with the piny flavors in the taste. Considerable amount of hop bite. Resinous in the flavor with a mild bready malt background. Small touches of alcohol. Medium, dry, smooth and mostly crisp mouthfeel. Small amount of alcohol warmth. Covers the palate in a more than average way. As it warmed it lost some of it’s dryness and became a little bit thin. Pretty good brew here. Decently balanced in all aspects. A worthy IPA. Very easy to drink. Good for both Spring and Summer. A little bit high in ABV for a session brew, but it would still be easy to down a few.

12 oz. bottle. Pours clear copper with a medium off-white head. The aroma is mild citrus, spices, and sawdust. The flavor is very bitter, and not much else. The palate is heavy, sticky and acidic. Overall, a very single-minded IPA, with little balance or subtlety.
