22. Pours crystal clear bright burnished coppery amber. Dense fluffy white head that sticks around for a while, if not forever. Mild orange peel nose with toast and caramel mixed in. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, and oranges again on the mid palate. Mild resiny finish. Not very creative or lively, but well made and flavorful enough. Decently refreshing.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2010
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. Pours a clear light copper color with a nice fluffy head. Citrusy aroma. Some grapefruit in there. Light hops too. Tangy flavor. Kinda chewy, but not really. Crisp. Dry hoppy finish. Kinda light hoppied for an IPA though.

Quite a decent, little, and may I say affordable bomber of IPA. More and more, I have to give credit to breweries like Full Sail who are putting out a unique, quality product which is in the same breath interesting and reliable. This beer sports aromas of pine, basil and a slight amount of citrus. Palate is straightforward, and the malts leave a nice buttered toast flavor on the finish. Sticky pine throughout, but enough alcohol to make the beer not sweet. Very good.

obguthr (3439) - Lynchburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Grapefruit and lemon peel bouquet. Clear golden, medium yellow head. Tastes as it smells, but with the hops less prevalent and with a light maltiness to balance it out. Not bitter and barely an IPA, but pretty nice.

Bottle. Amber pour with a short, off-white head. Hoppy and spicy nose with light pine and citrus and an herbal hoppiness. Taste is ripe fruit, sweet malt, caramel, citrus, spicy hops and herbal notes. Body is medium and chewy with a soft bubbly carbonation. Ends with more herbal and spicy hops, citrus, light pine, sweet malt, candy, fruit notes, and caramel.

Rich orange pour, white head. Thanks to walter for this one. AKA Dionysus. Tart oranges, citrus peel, resin, honey, syrup. Flavor is bitter and hoppy followed by a nice honey malt and fruity note. Pretty good brew!

Sampled on 8/20/2010. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, sweet, orange and citrusy. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity, caramel and sweet, lot of orange and apricot flavors. Hops are citrusy and orange, a touch floral and earthy as well. A medium bitter IPA. Nice carbonation. The hop bitterness tends to linger throughout this beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
