Bottle, courtesy kramer. Pours copper color, with creamy white head and very thick lacing. Nose has sharp piney hops, some vanilla, mango and other tropical elements. Bitter hops hit first, with some nice tropical fruit to follow. Crisp, drinkable and very bitter, but yummy.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Draft at Otts Pours a clear copper with a small white head. The head is gone fairly quickly. Has a very well mixed aroma of hops and malts with the hops just winning out. It is very well blended. Has a solid mouthfeel and good carbination. Packs a decent hoppiness and a good dry finish. On the light side of medium body for me but this is a good beer.

Courtesy of gunhaver. Pours clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma is malty sweet with crystal malts, some citrus hops and a bit of earthiness. The taste has some pine and citrus with a decent hop flavor and a nice layer of hop bitterness. Dries out a tad into the finish creating a good balance for this tasty brew.

Bottle from Brian shared with my tasting buddies. Coppery amber with a solid off white head. Big pine and citrus aroma over a toffee background. Medium body and carbonation, quite dry with a lingering bitterness. The hops come on quickly with lots of bitterness supported by a study caramel sweetness. A very nice IPA in the West Coast tradition.
