Amber pour with a white head. Nice citrus hop nose. Some grapefruit, a bit of orange, and a light peach note. Plenty of pine, a mild malt sweetness, and a hint of floral hops. There is a bit of a grassy note to the flavor. Some pie bitterness, grapefruit, and orange peel. Moderate malt sweetness on the palate as well.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2006
On draught at the brewpub. Dark amber color with a thin off-white head and minimal lacing. Nice hoppy piney hops aroma, as well as some fruit. Medium-bodied with a hoppy bitter character, as well as some malt and citrus fruit for balance. The finish is bitter with more citrusy hops that linger quite some time. This is probably the best of the beers I tried.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2008
Hazy orange color, nice head. Floral, pine, and grapefruit hop aroma. Nice bitter in the West Coast style. Notes of perfume, grapefruit, and pine. A little black pepper too.

ChainGangGuy (4375) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Appearance: Pours a hazy, dark amber body supporting a thin ring of white bubbles. Smell: A full hoppiness commands the aroma with notes of spice, citrus, pine, and even grass. Only a slight caramel maltiness beneath. Taste: Caramel maltiness, lightly sweet, and quickly cleansed away by a blast of spring water. Then come to prominence, bringing the same components as with the aroma and a medium-high bitterness that lasts well into the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A fine, finely bitter India Pale Ale.

Growler. Deep orange pour. Citrus aroma. Very nice hop aroma. Flavor is sweet malt. Some cotton candy. All followed up by a calming American C-hop bitterness.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2009
On tap @ the brewpub. Clear medium orange with a 1/2 finger yellowish white head, good retention. Big grassy citrus hops and light pine hops behind, with a solid lightly sweet clean caramel malt backbone. The flavor has the caramel turning a little honeyish, with the hops otherwise staying the same. Dry finish with bitterness at a 4. Light carbonation with a medium body. Very good IPA--more of a regular IPA than a West Coast. . .

On draught. Tasted during trip to California. Amber colour not filtrated. Hoppy aroma. Nice IPA, at the taste a great choise of blend hops. The taste ends up nicely bitter.
