Sweet and fruity citrus hop nose. The taste is moderately sweet, lightly bitter with lots of honey and cotton candy, some caramel. The hops are there, but light.

DiarmaidBHK (4142) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2011
Not a ton of arOma here. Pours a dark golden color. Some citrus notes on the tOngue but seems less confident and expressive compared to the pale although the taste does seem to linger.

Dark golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, floral hops, orange, citrus fruits, honey, vanilla, and some toast. Taste of citrus, pine resin, honey, citrus, toffee malts, tropical fruits, and grapefruit.

eaglefan538 (3019) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Consumed while enjoying (as a non-participant) the Iron Hill Twilight Criterium cycling race / party. Full amber body with a nice intial frothy head, concave up just over the glass rim, nice! The aroma was assertive citrus and floral hops. The flavor followed, a strong and assertive ipa, citrus hops at the fore, tropical fruits and mangos well displayed throughout each sip with a nice firm malt balance/body, although I struggled to actually get a descriptive malt term, as the tropical fruits kinda came across as the malt base. Odd. A nice IPA, highly drinkable, moderately bitter.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2009
Draft pours a nice amber body with a white head. Has good aroma of citrus hops and pine. Lightly carbinated. Has a good mouthfeel but not as hoppy as I would have liked. Has a cool piney aftertaste. A pretty good beer from a local brewer.
