Pint on tap at a local bar. Nice dark golden appearance, little head. Aroma is strongly floral with strong spicyness and a little malt and yeast noticeable. Flavor is very sweet and very spicy but not bitter at all as the high floral aroma would suggest. Maltiness present, goes down pretty smooth, but dosent really fill the palate with flavor very well. Decent beer, kind of different from the typical IPA.

On tap at Beer Distributors of America in New York. Orange color with a pronounced off white head. The aroma was full of citrus and less pure bitter hops. The taste is the same.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear crimson ruby color with a medium sized beige head that falls off fairly quickly. Big pine and pineapple on the nose, with some caramel, vanilla, and malt, and a touch of booze. Sweet, good hop presence, malty, and a bit boozy. Finishes with a good grapefruit and quinine bitterness.

12 ounce bottle- pours golden with good clarity and head. Strong west coast hop presence- pine, citrus some aspirin character (amarillo hops?)- medium caramel malt background. But mostly a hop delivery IPA. Finishes nice and bitter. Very refreshing IPA.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Bottle from LilBeerDoctor. Really surprised by the lower scores with this one. Really floral, citrusy nose. Flavor was grapefruit and pine. I love grapefruit-like IPA’s. Maybe others don’t? This reminded me of Firestone Walker Union Jack.

a nice bright sweet and clean brew that is ripe with grapefruit. strong and chalky in tastes of grapefruit...did i say that already? nice abv is hardly noticeable and gets a point for that. surprisingly above average and straight in your face. malt seems more herbal and goes along nice with the flavor package. a treat!
