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 (2860) - 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.

Nejhleader (1223) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2008
kinda let down by this. Does have a nice hop/pine aroma to it, but I thought the body was kinda flat, hop taste wasn’t anything too special, bit of a pine aftertaste. Not as massive as something with the last name zilla would suggest.

Draft. An old rating from Febuary. Clear amber body with thin head. Aroma is hoppy, grassy. Flavor is light citrus, sweet, lightly carbonated, very mild with a light mouthfeel. Tangy aftertaste and light bitterness. Finishes dry with a somewhat metallic taste.

on draft @ iron hill Lancaster. Poured clear amber color with a one finger white head. Aroma is of very floral a piney hops. I was in love even before I tasted it. Taste is the same with hints of grapefruit and orange. Balanced well, at least for me.
