bottle. hazy orange with a small white head. sweet, sugary caramel, grapefruit and spruce aroma. the flavor is very sprucy/piney with a floral note and a clean but sweet caramel malt. bitter finish. a little buttery but may just be some residual sweetness. medium to full bodied and light basement notes.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Draft from a cask. Pours golden amber with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is citrus and pine with a bit of malty sweetness. Flavor is grapefruit pith, resinous pine, lots of earthiness, plus some sweet, somewhat bready malt. Long, bitter finish. Palate is a little oily, a bit astringent.

Tap. Solid ipa. Nothing too over the top. Typical citrus hops with a sweet malt backing. Nice

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 24, 2011
22 ounce bottle - $5.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a hazy, orange-golden body with a two-finger-high stand of whitish froth.

Smell: Citric-scented and smelling of sap-glazed pine needles, with lighter, lesser underlying notes of malt and yeast.

Taste: Starts biscuity, follows with a touch of crisp grains. Small amount of short-lived, honeyish sweetness. Full of pithy grapefruit, lightly grassy, and with a coating of resin. The bitterness is big and rather insistent of staying around. Once the hops hit the tongue, it’s well past the slow, bitter, pithy finish when they finally fade off.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. A bit of oiliness rolling over the tongue.

Overall: It’s fine, it’s nice enough for a try, though, all in all, I’d have been happier with just a bomber of their standard IPA.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2011 $5 bomber of bam! Hazy straw. My nose is stuffy but piney & citrus rind. Such a wide & bittering sonofa. for the relatively average abv. Damn near perfect. Will buy more.

hopdog (8933) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2011
22oz bottle. Poured a golden color with a huge sized off white head. Aromas of fresh floral hops, pine and citrus. Tastes of the same hoppiness with stronger citrus vs. floral.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2011
Bouteille 22oz. De couleur dorée-orange et claire. Nez de houblon citrique (pamplemousse), résineux, herbeux et aux notes terreuses, malté de biscuits et de caramel sucré, moyennement fruité (agrumes sucrés, léger d’abricots) et avec des traces de pain et d’épices (poivre doux). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture moyennement résineuse et aux petites notes crémeuses. Goût amer de houblon citrique (pamplemousse), légèrement résineux et aux faibles notes florales (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) accompagné d’un moyen-léger goût fruité (agrumes, léger d’abricots) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel sucré, un moyen goût de biscuits et des traces de pain puis à mesure que l’on progresse vers la finale, l’amertume de houblon revient en force en étant asséchante, herbeuse (herbes mouillées), aux notes terreuses et plus résineuse ainsi qu’avec des notes épicées (poivre doux). Post-goût long et plutôt sec, assez amer de houblon citrique, résineux et herbeux avec un léger goût fruité (zest d’agrumes, pelures d’abricots).

GT2 (8426) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Tap at Churchkey. Pours a clear orange with a rocky creme head. Nose is pretty much all cheesy hops, strawberry, red fruits. Taste is mediocre unfresh IPA- cheesy hops, strawberry, sugar. Not too exciting.
