The beer is well hopped to 70 with Willamette and Zeus hops, lending the beer a bright bitterness and a rich hop flavor. Available in 22oz. bottles and draught. ABV 6.5% IBU 70

Bronzed body with decent head. Definite presence of the Zeus hops in the nose and translating similarly to the flavor. Bitter aroma and flavor, accented with some crisp grapefruit rind. However, this brew goes down the gullet with relative ease. A medium powered IPA.

Bottle; poured a clear orange color with frothy head. Aroma of earth, fruit, spice, and grapes. Flavor had a grape element to it. Alot actually. Malt was light, with some nw fruit and earthy hops. A bit thin

DYCSoccer17 (3288) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 19, 2010
22 ounce bottle from the Davis Food Co-op. Has the same husky, grainy Full Sail house character that I have become very bored with. Some spicy, grassy hop aromas come through...perhaps some Nelson Sauvin? Smells reminiscent of Anchor Humming, and that is not good. Just sorta swampy. Modestly hazy copper body (perhaps chill haze) with a good whitish head and nice lacing present. Starts sweet before this becomes toasting and cloyingly sweet, milky, and generally repulsive in the middle. Finishes with some spicy, grassy hops. Some floral notes are also in there. This is just entirely fucked up and reminiscent of vomit. What ever happened to Full Sail?

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 Standard pale orange appearance, nice head, fairly clear. Aroma was a change, as non-standard IPA hops were used - big aroma of bitter hops, but instead of the classic C notes, there were lots of floral and earth components. Flavor matched - just enough malt to hold things together in a beer that focused on an unusual hop profile. Interesting, although not my all time favorite. As it warmed, anise and orange marmalade notes came through as well. Bonus points for originality.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 21, 2011
bottle at azwine 10/27/10. orange gold color with a small white head. the aroma is earthy... kinda woody/dirty in the hop department along with orange, grass, florals and some vanilla?. the flavor is the same but sweeter than ideal with a bitterish finish. meh. 6/3/6/3/3.1

Cybercat (3196) - Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Aroma is hoppy and somewhat yeasty - not strong, but still promising. It pours a clear yellow amber with a fluffy white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Flavor is strongly hoppy with hints of grapefruit and evergreen. Texture is smooth with a lively tingle that persists in the mouth after the brewski has headed downstairs.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Local 22oz bottle. Pours a clear orange-copper colour with a short white head and spotty lacing. Nice, gentle aroma of mandarin oranges, grass, and citrusy northwest hops. Definitely not an overpowering flavour initially. Very light hops and some citrus notes but once the back of your tongue gets splashed the bitterness starts. Relatively long finish with lingering bitter notes. Okay for me but not one of my favorites.

beernovice39 (3102) - Montana, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle pours a cloudy orange brew with a tiny white head. Scent is tart citrus? and something else sweet. Taste is bitter, hoppy and something sweet like honey. Bready bitter finish. Decent!

Bottle @ Beer Revolution. Pours a clear amber color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus hops with a bit of a tropical note and faint malty notes. The taste is very bitter, resiny and herbal hops with some green apple notes. Medium bodied.
