j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a medium to large barely off white head. Loads of sweet pine and citrus hops, just a touch of pineapple. Sweet and spicy hops hit right up front, but then fade off slightly fading into a more mellow tangerine note in the middle. Finishes with a tangy grapefruit bitterness that begins subtly and lingers for quite a while. Alcohol sticks out a little bit, but fairly well hidden throughout.

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear dark gold with a 2 finger dense white head that results in spotty lacing. The nose is pine and toffee. The taste is caramel, ripe citrus and pine with a tart grapefruit finish. Medium bodied – a nice IPA.

Bartzilla (530) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Very fresh and tasty IPA. Smells like sticking your nose in a bag of hop flowers. Easy drinking and the 7.3% is not noticeable. Could be a crusher of an ale with its relatively smooth drinkability.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a big lasting head. Smells very hoppy, pine and grapefruit. Simcoe and Amarillo? Yes please. Hops aren’t as prevalent in the flavor but they are very much in the forefront (grapefruit, pine, peach, mango) along with some tart wheat and a dollop of caramel. Restained bitterness. Has some sweetness on the finish. Oh my, very tasty.

beerguy101 (5267) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Sampled on 7/2/2009. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is citrus and piney hops, some malt and some orange. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and piney, lots of grapefruit. Nice balance. Good carbonation. It is a nice crisp and dry IPA with just enough hops and bitterness. Hides the 7% alcohol very well. A great summer IPA, there is a certain lightness to this beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle. Poured clear gold with small white head. Aroma of nice crisp citrus and pine hops. Some mild faint spice also noted. Taste is really hoppy, lots of citrus and some light pine, with a decent malt backing. Finish is little bitter. Mouth is smooth and well carbonated. Very refreshing APA/IPA.

Pours an orange color with a moderate off-white head. Floral and citrusy aroma. Flavors are citrusy hops, grapefruit, orange peel, lemon with some pine showing in the finish. Firm bitterness and a touch dry. Light sweet malt backing. Drinks light for 7% and refereshing, excellent IPA for the summer.
