NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Orange color with a fluffy white head. Pretty dense lacing. Citrusy aroma, mostly of the lemon/grapefruit variety. Moderately sweet malty body with nice carbonation and piney hop flavors. Quite a bitter finish. Tasty.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - AUG 31, 2008
12oz bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a fairly clear dark gold with a thin white head. Piney hop aroma. Decent malt base with some caramel malt sweetness. A slight sourness. Good hop bite, but not super bitter. Medium bodied. Solid, easy drinking IPA.

zombywoof (461) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Orange color with foamy head and decent lacing. Tastes like mandarin oranges with floral notes. A little soapiness. Not bad but Iíve had better IPAís. Seems a little lightweight for an IPA unless you’re talking about an English IPA and I’m a bigger fan of the American version of IPA’s.

maltman53 (459) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Pours hazy blood orange, with a one-inch head and nice lacing, hoppy and citrus nose, medium-bodied malt backbone, slightly lacking malt depth, finishing a bit dry. All in all, a pretty good beer and true-to-type in the APA style.

TomTron (451) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Pours a nice hazy golden with a lingering, frothy head. Aromas of floral hops, some citrus, and pine. Taste is medium bitterness with a nice hop bite and a slightly watery finish. Some malty sweetness pokes through once it warms up a little. Overall a pretty refreshing beer and a good representation of the style.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Thanks to Skyview. Golden pour with a clean white head. Dull floral hop aroma and earthiness. Taste is slightly floral as well with a slightly bitter and dry finish.

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Orange-tan and pretty cloudy with lots of sediment, despite a pretty careful pour. Head and lace are good. Smell and taste has lots of pine, grapefruit and fruity hops, a little bit of earthiness, and a caramel / nutty malt base. Good carbonation and nice medium body, lightly bitter piney aftertaste. A pretty darn good beer.

Pours a cloudy orange. Nice aroma of grapefruit/citrus. Not all that much going on with the taste. Some of the grapefruit comes through, but it is a pretty simple, easy drinking beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle. Poured clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange and flowers. Taste is interesting. Overload of citrus, some sour, almost like spoiled orange juice. Bitter finish. Medium body. Iím not really into this one.

Had on draft at the Beacon Pub in Forest Park Illinois. Pours a cloudy light orange, with thick white fizz on top that has some nice retention. Tastes a little flat, but has some hop flavor that is enjoyable. A decent APA.
