This liquid dream pours a hazy golden orange straw color with a large puffy white two-finger head. First sip of this beer rewards with a super juicy hop presence bursting with fresh orange and lemon citrus then continues to introduce toasted malt undertones.

Bottle received in trade, thanks to crazynelson. White fluffy giant head, golden yellow color that gives of scents of grass, citrus and sweetness. Taste is both hoppy and refreshing.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Appearance: A dull, light yellow with a 1 inch sudsy head. The sudsy head leaves behind a good deal of lace. Aroma: Grass, yeast, and a little bit of citrus and pineapple. Taste: Bitter hops, a quick hit of citrus and pine, and a bready funky finish. Mouthfeel: Full bodied and heavy. Very fizzy. Overall: I am usually not high on harvest ales, but this one was very flavorful and refreshing.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Bottle into Sam Adams Lager glass. Pours a pale copper, cloudy, with a massive, off-white, big-bubbled rocky head. Nose is still a bit green, resiny, citrus on top. Some pale malt peeking through from underneath. Taste starts with a solid, biscuity, lightly sweet pale malt foundation underneath, with some nice leafy, resiny pine on top. Dry; hop note seems just a bit acidic. Finish is lightly bitter, with an exhale that carries both the biscuity malt and the green, though now slightly faded, hop note with it. Well balanced, though at this point, this one is probably past its prime. Nonetheless, still very drinkable, and a solid effort several months after its release. Would beat many a fresh APA. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a bit oily. Serving type: bottle

Oakes (13966) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2009
Opaque beige. The aroma has almost a Belgian accent in its yeasty fruitiness. This accentuates a big, fresh, leafy hop character. The body is creamy, but with good spritz as well. This pulls a pleasing fresh bread malt note across the palate. The malt carries with it abundant hop - leafy, slight orange, dalandan notes - and a slightly perfumey yeast note. The bitterness perception is moderate but insistent. The finish is dry, herbal and slightly pithy. When you deconstruct this beer you see how an apparently simple dynamic can be executed nearly to perfection.

nefarious (220) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Hazy golden pour with a huge white fluffy head! Extremely carbonated abd fizzy.Lots of citrus and pine. Much more subtle notes of floral and sweetness. Wicked amount of lacing. The flavor is very balanced. The floran and grassy tastes are first and foremost......followed by a hop bitterness...the a slight tang and sweet on the finish. A very light and crispy beer would make a great session beer for early summer or fall. Not as heavy as two hearted or the centennial IPA. Very good.....In fact this is killer.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Bottle. Hazy blonde with big thick off-white head. Looks like a tripel. Gorgeous hop aroma with a lively yeast character. High carbonation, as expected. A little earthier in the flavors than expected too. Lots of citrus everywhere, especially grapefruit. Excellent hop character reminiscent of a Belgian IPA, might come from the yeast as well. Good alcohol dryness finishes the beer. Loved it.

Butters (3991) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Shared with the boys for Cellar Reduction #3. Near clear yellow with decent white head. Perfect hop aroma. But the flavor just doesn’t stand up. Sweet hop flavor is nice and floral. Great beer.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle with Butters and sixfootsix at the 3rd Cellar Reduction. Pours an off-white head that laces with a golden body. Smells of pineapple, pine, and a hint of apricot and honey. Tastes likevery smooth pineapple with a good malt body and modest bitter finish. Elegant for a hoppy brew.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Cloudy golden yellow with a wispy large white head. Aroma of fresh floral and woodsy hops with some mild citrus mixed in. Taste of pine, floral hops, citrus, some malt makes it decently balanced. Medium bitter finish. Decent, but not great.

Second best IPA Ive had yet (first place goes to Bells Two Hearted Ale). Great hop presence in aroma and finish. Very fresh and crisp. Good balance of citrus flavors with the pine and floral hints. Malt complements the hops...never overpowering them. Alcohol presence minimal....a prefect session beer.
