cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2009
On tap at the original brewpub on 7/17/09. Pours a nice orange with bubbly head and solid lacing. Very pleasant lavendar, grapefruit and orange hops. A nice balanced sweetness with the bitter, but overall a bit too fizzy for me.

Sampler at the Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery, Boulder 12/10/2008 Very hoppy aroma. Amber golden coloured and hoppy with a pine fruit flavour. Crisp dry and slightly bitter in the finish.

Maddog (394) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Draft at the brewery/pub. What a wonderful beer and wonderful place to drink and eat. This IPA is darker than most as it pours a clear dark amber. The aroma is a burst of fresh citrus hops and the flavor is a nice body of malt encased in very fresh, fruity, citrusy hops from begininning to end. Pretty well balanced and just a great beer.

Cavie (3801) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Clear reddish orange pour. Big hop aroma. Lots of hops are used but the nose retains a fair balance. Smooth feeling upfront. Most of the hops are tasted on the finish, which has a sweet lingering bitterness. Very well done.

hophead21112 (218) - Louisville, Colorado, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Draught at Southern Sun. Amber pour with amazing frothy white head that never goes away. Average lacing. Sweet citrus grapefruit notes with pine and grass. Medium carbonation, caramel sweet body and lingering bitterness to balance it out. Lots of grapefruit all around. Good IPA.
