Chalky mouthfeel with a sidecar of bumbling floral notes. Tastes of green tea and vinegar. Not the most crafty IPA on the market. Pyramid needs to restructure this brew before I crane my neck back and drink it again.

Ferris (2006) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2012
Draft - Mild nose with fruity citrus hops. Clear gold with thick persistent head. Punch of bitterness and grapefruit hops. A long but entirely unpleasant finish. The mild nose masks the strength but a decent IPA.

Draught @ Pyramid, Berkeley. Golden pour with disappearing head, no lacing. Hoppy, piney, some florals, dry, slight bitterness, remarkable tastelessness.

crazyvin (1858) - New York, USA - AUG 20, 2012
A nice amber-orange body thin white head that had some retention but no lace. Aroma was a mix of caramel malts and some mild pine hops. Flavor was similar. Mostly two-dimensional. Finish was slightly dry and the carbonation seemed a bit elevated. Nothing really wowed me about this beer.

Pours a dark gold with a smallish head. I get pretty much no smell off this one, but I found the taste pleasantly hoppy.

keepersj12 (2560) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Kind of bland for me. Has a bit of a floral aroma and a malt base. The flavor has a bit of malt up front and a moderate hop presence. The finish is dry and is a bit thin.

rocbyter (1858) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Moderate floral hop aroma. Light orange hazy color with a large white head. Light bitter beginning building to a moderate finish. Creamy palate.

This is a pretty solid beer with a great hops/malt balance. One of my go to beers in the summer.

Arayaga2 (1754) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Mildly hazy yellow with a white head. It doesn’t really smell like anything- just faintly sweet, and the same is true of the taste, almost to the extent that I question if they bottled the right beer. Very slight bitterness in the finish. $1.8/12oz

Scrapersnbeer (1434) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Malty caramel aroma, which is a surprise given the 67 BUs. Orange with a film of haze. Sharply bitter, not nuanced in terms of hops, with an aftertaste of dried orange peels and pine tar. Medium and slick body. Best by 7/28/12. Okay. thats next week, but this is not the IPA.
