Pours a hazy golden amber with lots of small floaties which almost looked like sugar granules floating in a thick liquid. Head was medium off white creamy/bubbly with lots of lacing left down the glass. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, lots of pine, grapefruit and some floral. Flavor is very piney and sweet, with lots of caramel, some grapefruit. More on the sweet side than the bitter. Wasn’t expecting a lot from this one but really ended up enjoying it.

Bottle at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear reddish orange colour with a rich creamy white head. Quite sweet and perfumy aroma of peaches and sweet oranges with a grapefruity hop bite. dryish flavour of lychee and grapefruit with notes of cookies. hoppy finish of grapefruit and lemon-rind. Nice one.

Thanks to The_Epeeist for the bottle. Nice citrus aroma comes from a hazy golden brown body. Medium palate. Citrus and pine flavors up front with some good sweet malts in back. This one was better than expected.

12 oz bottle that poured a hazy orange copper with nice tan head. It has a sizable aroma that seems to be both grapefruit and pine hops as well as some sweet malt. The malt seems to cause the tart grapefruit smell much sweeter. Wow, juicy bitter grapefruit flavor that flows into sweeter and sweeter citrusiness as the malts ante up and kick in. Just beyond midway bitter pine hops join the fun. Ends as any IPA or IIPA should with tasty hoppiness right into the after taste. High on the Yumminess scale.

This is the best IPA I’ve ever had. Wonderful aroma of fruit and hops. Great color, too. BIG taste -- hop, fruit (citrus, apricot) alcohol -- delicious! My new favorite IPA for sure.

12 oz bottle. Very hazy orange. Smallish head. Lots of delicious apricot/mango hop aromas. I should have just smelled it all nite long. Flavor was still very hoppy. Grapefruit and a slight floral character. But not as nice as the aroma. Still a very nice beer.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 This was very good. Poured a cloudy orange. Strong hop start and mellow finish. Grapefruit, orange peel taste. Yummy.

From a twist off 12 oz. stubby bottle with no freshness date, sampled after a few hours in my refrigerator in a tulip glass. My bottle had sediment in the bottom that I decided to swirl and pour in. Poured a cloudy orangey, tarnished copper with a small foamy, bubbly topped head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing, minimal amount of sticking. Aromas of dry leafy tobacco, citrus, resiny hops, a light apple fruitiness and grainy, caramel malts. Good, steady medium carbonation and a crisp, dry, hop slick, velvety smooth medium-full bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant enough tasting DIPA, earthy spice, dry leafy, citric rind bitter hops, a soft, rolling bitterness in the palate, a nutty yeastiness that meshes with the grainy malts, traces of sweet caramel, the alcohol has light fruitiness to it, slowly warming in the back of the throat, and a dry hoppy, sweet malty finish. A decent DIPA, quaffable if you’re not careful, a nice change of pace.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Nice opaque brown with medium off-white head. Not much aroma. Taste is sweet as though juice was added. A bit of citrusy hops in the taste, but not quite enough for me to call it an IIPA. This would have been a decent IPA, in terms of the hopping. $3/12oz
