egajdzis (5385) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Poured a lightly hazy, amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, floral hops, skunk, nuts, and toffee malts. Taste of more toffee malts, citrus fruits, flowers, caramel, and grass, with a medium, grapefruit bitterness in the finish.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - APR 12, 2007
Sampled at the brewhouse in Boulder. Seems very consistent with most of their other brewed ales. (Hoppy and cloudy). Which is always a favorite of mine. Pours with a nice head to it and has a lot of hoppy aroma. Citris undertones and very nice.

dillinja (24) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2007
On tap at Southern Sun (great deck and happy hour’s a screamin deal at $2.25 per). Great hazed-up mid-amber color, nice head and big hoppy smell. A strong flavor that doesn’t back down, with a big hit of grapefruit-citrus bitter at the end. Bam!

On tap at the Southern Sun Location. Poured a medium and hazy amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, pine and light caramel. Tastes of citrus / oranges, caramel with a grapefruit bitter finish. Lacing left on the glass. Nice balance and just noticed it was 7.5% (well hidden)

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 5, 2006
On draft at O’Briens Wet Hop Festival. This is a wet hop beer using Columbus hops according to the info sheet describing the festival beers. Clear medium amber color with a small off-white head. This one has a strange aroma for an IPA, more lagerish in character, pale soapy malts, quite floral with a bit of grass and very mild hoppiness. Odd flavor as well, floral-sweet, kind of a "spring fresh" soap taste, tangy floral hops with hints of orange rind. Medium body and tingly carbonation. My overall impression of this beer is "Huh, IPA?" Did I rate the same beer as everyone else???

TheBeerGod (5316) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2006
Draft at Falling Rock. Copper body with ruby edges. Nose is hoppy, piney, some citrus notes. Taste is mostly hops, citrus fruits, light pineapple, pine/spruce/evergreen, and soft caramel. Body is medium with a light lingering bitterness. Finishes with some sweet malt notes, caramel, pine and citrus fruit. Nice!

on tap-pours a light tan head and a hazy gold color. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is bold citrus hops-grapefruit. Good effervescence.
