660ml bottle shared by blankboy with me and garthicus. Deep clear amber, large lasting frothy tan head. Initially a bit of cooked veg, but it settles down to light toasty malt backing simple but strong leafy & mild citrus (orange) - no alcohol. Taste follows - dry, zesty, somewhat leafy, a bit of alcohol - decent. Decent body and carbonation, a bit astringent, reasonably long bitter, slightly carbonized finish. Nice.

Thanks to Blankboy. Appearance: Ruby red with a small white head. Aroma: sweetly hopped, some red berries, mild yeast and malt. Flavour: berries again, spice, good hop bite, bran and a malty finish. Not bad.

Nice IPA, relatively light compared to other IPA but it works well for this beer. I would drink this again

Pours a clear brown amber with a thick frothy white head. Aroma is fairly bland, mostly piney hops. Taste is a smooth piney hop with an average bitterness taste. Well balanced and medium body.

imaragingbull (570) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2010
650ml bottle. 6.0% ABV. Pours clear orange amber with nice off white head and lacing. Rich caramel malt aromas with distinct piney and citrus aromas. Light body with medium carbonation and a nice balanced bitterness. Flavours though not too complex with a touch of vegetable - caramel malts, a silk mouthfeel, nice piney and citrusy hop flavours plus a nice bitter finish make for an appreciable IPA.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - NOV 7, 2010
It’s good. Pours a proper hazy orange colour with a short lived white head. The aroma is deep, complex, and hard to pin down, theres the usual hops, and hop related aroma’s, maybe a little sweetness, honey, but I smell other things to, things strange and unusual to me in hoppy beers that I just can’t seem to put my finger on...strange. The flavor is good, hops all the way through, some balancing from the malts, but this is beer is mainly about grapefruit, resiney hop goodness. Finishes with orange rind and a strange malt related sweetness, it’s good. All and all a very solid brew.

paco (527) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle. Pours orange/amber with a small head. Aromas of rich malts and bitter citrus hops. Some caramel. The aroma is far more potent than the taste. Weak hops lead the flavors. Some malt balance but very weak. Hints of bitter citrus. Palate weak and fairly watery. No body. Very disappointing given the initial aromas.
