Cavie (4299) - Arlington, 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.

(on tap at the brewpub). Copper color. Light cloudiness. Strong hop (grapefruit) aroma and flavor. Light bitterness. Avg duration. Oily texture. Good lacing. Moderate carbonation. A quality IPA; wish I would’ve brought a growler.

Crushed with Jakebra on tap at the brewpub. Very nice. Good hops all the way through with good balance at the same time. Excellent IPA.

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.

caesar (6591) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2008
Tap @ brewpub. Slight hazy orange color, short head. In your face come the hops, pine and grapefruit. Very bitter taste, but still starting sofe, almost creamy, and then finishing bitter, almost astringent. Great stuff.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Draft @ Mountain Sun. Pours a bright, copper-orange color; thin off-white head with solid fine-bubbled lacing. Solid, resiny hop aroma: citrus, oranges; some candy sugar at the core; clean and juicy bitterness. Good carbonation. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: lots of juicy, resiny orange, citrus, and earthy hop bitterness; seems predominantly Amarillo; juicy, dense, non-astringent; very solid, highly drinkable IPA. Great hop character. Lengthy finish: tongue-numbing bitterness, oranges, citrus, and light earthiness; dry and bitter at the end.
