# 700 22oz bottle from FlacoAlto. Beautiful and bright aroma. Floral and fruity. A good amount of pine. A necessary touch of biscuity malt. Very fresh smelling. Pours clear dark gold with a bright white head leaving decent sticky lacing. Dry and bitter on the palate. The citrus comes shining through. A touch of wood. Cedar. Light pine notes. Fresh. Medium bodied. Crisp and lively on the tongue. Finishes with a lingering citrusy and woody bitterness. Quite nice.

Pours out a cloudy golden IPA. Great hoppy taste, not too much. Smooth finish. A very tasty drink-able IPA.

Thanks to WeeheavySD for this one. Pours out a cloudy light orange color with a two to three finger thin and foamy head. Aroma is of pine and citrus hops. Taste is nice and hoppy with citrus and pine hops coming through, not many malts flavors going on, maybe a slight backbone. Nice bitter bite comes through on the finish. Solid...

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2008 22oz bottle. thanks to SDbruboy for this one. I think this was bottled 1-2 months ago. pours hazy dull gold with white head. the hop aroma has faded considerably, some faint citrus and green hop notes while the biscuity malt is comes through. flavor is still pretty bitter but the hop flavor has become muddled a bit, a greeny citrus and piney profile that is sharp but not extremely fresh and lively. either its the hops or the carbonation but it seems a bit prickly. med body. tasty but i can’t wait to re-rate a fresher bottle next year.3.4.

bottle, very fresh 2008 sample that i enjoyed quite a bit more than my previous rating, nose of lime, citrus, and green, flavors of green, citrus and orange. a very citrusy wet hop beer.3.7.

sloth (2602) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Large white head, excellent retention, starts out normally then turns into a rocky inviting lump. Lacing is coating. Clear gold color. Fruity nose of citrus, grapefruity and peachy. Medium bodied, lightly oily on the palate. Pleasent fruit flavors, citrus, nicely tropical and melony with some caramel maltiness hanging in there. An almost dry fruity finish, good hop bite. Thanks to dirty_martini and SDbruboy for bombers of this groovy elixer. Thanks guys!

11-13-07 bottle.
Cloudy orange color with amazing head and lacing. Perfect amount of hops with the malt sweetness playing along nicely. Not watery or metallic. Has a stand up flavor that is earthy and sweet and hoppy. A bit soapy but totally worth it!

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Thanks to dirty martini. Orange pour, small white head. Aroma is awesome huge citrus hops, orange and grapefruit. Flavor is same citrus hops. A big fresh leafy teast. Bitterness is semi high and works well with this basially hop juice. Thin mouthfeel and low on malts but high on carbonation. One-dimensional but it is what it is a straight IPA.
