Beautiful orange-copper pour. Perfect frothy, white-laced head. Aroma of hemp, freshly cut grass and grapefruit. Initial taste of grapefruit, orange and tree bark. Fairly balanced palate. Warming alcohol aftertaste with a prodigious mouthfool of hops. I love this stuff!

Teetering on the edge of 500 ratings, I realized I’ve almost been through a case of this and haven’t rated it yet. Pours out a light copper color with a small lacing white head. Aroma is of citrus hops. The taste is upfront citrus/grapefruit and floral hops with a slight sweetness to balance out the hop bitterness. Refreshing beer and a very solid example of this style.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2006 12 oz bottle. Clear orange with a frothy bone head; some stays. Honey and faint citrus. Pineapple-grapefruit, a little brown sugar, increasingly bitter peppery pith. Oily drying. Elmer’s glue aftertaste. Columbus? Pretty nice until that final note.

The creamy head hides the very cloudy, honey bronze color beneath. The nose is of bitter hay, either toasted or burnt. This is a RICH tasting IPA, very creamy. The initial strength passes to a fizzy middle flavor, followed by a bitter sour-malt flavor at the end. Overall, a great winter IPA, although it’s awfully heavy.

12-oz.; thanks, Tever! Pours garnet-amber under the light, but more copper-colored in a darker room. Hazy and particulated. Gorgeous and rustic-looking. Delectable. Huge sudsy off-white head. Big grapefruit aromas, with some nice pine and just clean very lightly floral scents in there as well. Medium body with carb approaching the high side of things. Nice rich malty palate with swirling delights of grapefruit and general citric fruity tang--very orange-y, too. Strong but clean and drinkable, nothing out of balance. A little bit of pucker at the very end of the long bitter, slightly resin-y (but mostly pine-y) finish. Great stuff.
