12oz Bottle: Cloudy amber, biege head. Sweet malts & some citrus hops in the aroma. Bitter hops up front in the flavor & a very brief hit of caramel. Old bottle, will have to revisit because I find it hard to believe it sucks this much fresh.

pours honey gold with a finger and a half thick bone white head that was still and slow to fall. the body is a clear light amber and the head left nice traces of lacing on the edges. the aromas are piney and citrusy with a nice hop presence. it is light bodied and has a nice sweet bitter taste with a very special aftertaste and is very good for an ipa. i taste citrus, hops, pine oils, light malts and hints of caramel. the finish is watery with all the noted flavors and really pleseant with butter notes. aftertaste is a little light and hangs around on the palate for just a short while. also, very refreshing and a good beer to turn a new beer drinker onto ipa’s.

Who doesn’t love the smell of well hopped beer! Pours amber with decent white head. Slightly sweet entry soon changing to a lengthy hop bitterness. Could probably do with a bit more malt!

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy orange soup, looks more like a warm apple Christmas cider than a beer. No bubbles, no lacing.
Intense aroma of freshly mowed grass with summer flowers and dandelions.
Over the top hops. Bitter and astringent, with lots of pineapple, apples, and a sour and acidic finish.
Thick and chewy body.
A struggle to drink, from start to finish. Unsubtle.

Beautiful hoppy floral notes on the nose. Orange pour with a nright white frothy head. Crisp hoppiness mixed with a nice amount of slight bitterness. Very nice finish. Great beer.

Mildly hoppy with a decent aroma, but much boozier and harsh than the original recipe. Drinkable, but not something I’d get again.

(12 ounce bottle) Has a great nose. Pours a copper liquid. This beer is a herbal hoppy taste, with some citrus hops. Good ipa

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2010 I’ve been on a streak of buying IPA’s and am considering going in another direction but ales I have not tried keep popping up in local establishments. This one did not disappoint. Very nice flavor and mouthfeel.
