Upon first opening the aroma is orange/grapefruit. As it warms it gets more pine notes. A lot of grain and cereal notes. The bitterness really sticks around. Almost an orange peel flavor with a big amount of malt.

This beer is like biting into a grapefruit with the skin still on it. Its aroma is a bit deceptive, as it tends to come across as mild and sort of weedy, yet the citrus outburst is extraordinarily present on the front.
I work at the Lucky Lab and we do bottle our beers from the tap.

More balanced than Triple Threat. Malts were toasty and mildly sweet. Hops were ultra citrusy (tangerine, lemon and grapefruit) and moderately bitter. Very juicy IPA.

Excellent malt with very smooth bitterness. Good biscuit like malt character and caramel sweetness. Citrus and piney hops are way up front, definitely worth a try if you’re in the neighborhood.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2010 On draft at Lucky Lab. Copper pour with light head. Aroma is light but I get lightly floral citrus, Orange and sweet malt. Quite hoppy but in a more grassy way than the aroma let’s on. A bit of lemon too. Grainy malt. Dry mouthfeel med body.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours dark gold with a thick off-white head. Has a citrus hop aroma and a gypsum taste. This is a very jazzed up pale ale with lots of orange and grapefruit. I also taste strawberries. The beer has a quick finish for such a bitter bolus.

On tap at the brewery. Colour... cloudy, dark orange-amber. Nose...very hoppy with plenty of pine pitch and citrus. Palate... generous CO2, lots of grapefruit zest and pith, tropical fruits, quince, and a long bitter finish.
