3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Small ivory fizzy head, fair amount of lacing, floaties, cloudy/hazy, visible carbonation, and an orange hue. Nose was very hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Flavor was extremely hoppy, grapefruit and citrus. Lingering hoppy aftertaste. Hoppy mouthfeel. Medium body. This was just too hoppy for my palate. This is a true hop heads delight for sure.

Aroma was very hoppy, with plenty of citrus, grapefruit in particular. Taste was also hoppy, dry, bitter, but balanced nicely with solid malt presence. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 Bottle. Dark orange amber body. Very nice, complex hop nose, with fruit cocktail and grapefruit notes mixed with a resinous pine note. Good combination. Cascade dry hops are all over this one. Palate is richly bitter, but not assertive or corrosive. Chewy and resiny flavor, with some grapefruit acidity and flavor, and a bready, malt note hidden as well. Rich, chewy, sticky, fruity, but not exactly grassy. A wonderful IPA, especially when fresh.

Thanks to realale420, I was able to enjoy this. Amber color with off-white head. Hoppy/citrus nose, flavor is hops, with nice roasted malt balance that leads into that BIG hoppy finish.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Amazing IPA! At first I was skeptical of this beer because I thought the label was awfully gaudy. big hops aroma and beautifully balanced hops and malts. Thick and lush but not too big. Perfect colorful orange body with a gentle head and right in the perfect range for alcohol. Simcoe hop fruitness and Columbus hop piquancy. Tastes like French-kissing God.

12 oz. bottle on 3/17/07 in Colorado. Pours a clear gold with a large white head. Huge fresh hop aroma of citrus and spruce that beckons. Mouthfeel is resinous with a medium body and carbonation. Bitterness is front and center, not necessarily bad, but perhaps a little unbalanced in that regard. Still, this is a very enjoyable IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours a light hazy amber with a nice foaming head. The aroma is screeming hops... citrus and fresh green, and some fruitiness. flovor is a not as hoppy as it smells, and is held together well with earty malt.
