12 oz bottle packaged 6/30/05-pours a thick creamy light tan head that reduces. Color is clear yellow-gold. Appearance of the beer is minimal carbonation. Aroma is hoppy-malt. Taste is hoppy with nicely balancing of malts. Good carbonation. This beer is much better out of a glass than the bottle.

Cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma is floral, grapefruit, orange peel, peach and grass with a little caramelly malt. Sweetish with a decent hopflavour and bitterness. Nothing special

bhensonb (10934) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Bottle from Wine Cellar. Amber color with a decent white head. Aroma seems primarily resin. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is more resin than citrus. Finish turns a bit malty with some citrus. It’s a good ale. I’d do it again.

Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2009
A rock-solid IPA here. Sampled it at a tasting while in college. Nice golden color with a medium head. Strong hops odor and flavor. A wonderful session beer.

Koelschtrinker (10504) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 13, 2011
Ausgeprägter IPA Geruch. Sehr dumpf, nicht so aromatisch wie der Geruch, echt schade. Schmeckt wie ein durchschnittliches IPA mit Wasser gepantscht. Ich habe gesprochen. Test vom 1.10.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,9,11,10,6,10 - 9,50
