Bottle: Pale golden, fairly clear, soft carbonation, gentle white head that dies fairly quickly, splotchy lacing.   Soft citrus and tea leaf notes.   Mildly hopped, its moreso a citrus rind flavor that emerges on the tongue.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Picks up more citrus sweetness as it warms.   Soft IPA in general, with quite a bit of citrus rind flavor.   Thanks to Facto for this one!

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 Bottle. Pours very clean golden hay color with medium white head. Aroma is citrus and hops. Flavor definetly has malty sweetness which is combined with the citrus hops. Nice balance between malt and hops. Finish is a little dry.

hops are crazy here, i coudl taste grapefruit here and it almost ruined it for me. what saved me was the flavor, this is a very distinct IPA and that is rare and enjoyed.

Kevin (2072) - New Mexico, USA - MAR 9, 2007
lightish tan pour, good sized lasting head. tang hop aroma. bitter flavor strikes first, but gives way to a nice balanced ipa. light orange mixes with a bit of pine resin and an enjoyable sweetness. a bit chalky but still enjoyable. fruit sweetness lingers with a lemon zest bitter. thanks, brent.

Golden with nice white head. Nose of pine and citrus. A very relaxed toned down IPA. Yet 7.5% on the alcohol scale. Not sure I could tell it was even 5%. Caramel malts cover for a nice sweetness throughout. I would say that it is sessionable. Not bad.

clear, deep gold with full white head. Aroma is malty, slightly piney with some citrus. NIcely balanced malt and hops with lingering bitterness and significant fruitiness.

Bottle. No this is what I’m Talkin about! Cloudy orange color with fluffy white head. Citrus and slight caramel nose. The taste was fruity, bitter, and smooth. Well balanced beer. Good refreshing bite at the end.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Bottle thanks to DrBayern! Pours a golden hue with a nice white head on top. Aroma is grassy hops with caramel malts coming in easily. Flavor starts with a nice hop bite and bitterness. Flavors of orange and grass hops take the palate at the beginning, finishing off is a nice sweet pear aftertaste which is a mixture of hops and caramel malt. A pretty well-balanced IPA on the palate. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. A decent IPA.
