brokensail (9935) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Pours amber in color with a finger of off-white head. Kind of past its prime, it seems. Sweet caramel and toffee malt with some bready malt. Floral hops and a bit of citrus, but not all that hoppy. A little bit herbal and piney with some floral notes. Sweet toffee and bread, but overall just kind of meh.

Clear amber color with ivory head. Tea leaf, caramel, grapefruit aromas. medium body with average co2. Nicely bitter pine, tea leaf hoppy flavors with a caramel base brew-mildly boozy spicy finish--almost good

Ratman197 (9036) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bomber poured a hazy golden amber with a lasting creamy ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, lemon zest, grapefruit and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooith. Flavors of biscuit, grapefruit, orange and light earthiness with a smooth moderatly bitter lingering grapefruit finish.

Ober (2806) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2012
A clear orange/yellow colored beer with a white head. The aroma of sweet with bitter (a little dishwater, maybe the glass wasn’t proper). Th taste of sweet, some bitter with spices. The aftertaste is sweet with bitter.

olr1984 (918) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2012
22oz bottle pours a slight amber in color with white head. There’s not a strong aroma. Pine grapefruit and citrus taste.

mcberko (5368) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma brings out a big caramel malt backbone, resinous hops, and some residual sugar. Flavour brings out some notes of yeast, resinous hops, some bready malts, and some dry caramel malts. There are some sweet fruity notes that kick in later. Finishes malty sweet, with a bit of dark fruits. Not the hoppiest IIPA out there by any means - overtaken by the sweeter malt profile on this. Drinkable in smaller amounts - I wouldn’t want a pint of this. Decent.

Not in your face hops, faded or this is it as should have been recent batch. Still nicely drinkable, thanks StephanSD.

madvike (2582) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2013
On tap at the Costa Mesa brewpub - Pours clear light amber with a foamy white head. Nose is caramelly sweet malt, muted pine hops, and not much else. Taste is tons of sweet honey malt, muted pine hops, and a long malty finish. Medium body with nice carbonation. Just too malty and not enough hop punch.
