I had low expectations and was supprised. It had more flavor and palate than expected. Aroma was typical of an IPA. Flavor had the nice bite of bittering hops but had a nice malt backbone as well. A decent effort.

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.

maltman53 (465) - 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.

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 (462) - 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 I’ve had better IPA’s. 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.

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

TomTron (452) - 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.

Bottle pours clear copper with a medium head and thin lacing. Aroma is subtle hoppiness. Flavor is not bad. I need to try a fresh one.
