djd07 (9748) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy light copper color with a small white head. A lot of fizz and carbonation with this one. The aroma was floral and citrus. Nice lacing that diminshed quickly. The taste is smooth with a nice hoppy bite and bitter finish. A great IPA.

jercraigs (9722) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2008
2008-10-14. Hazy golden orange, modest off-white head. (3+) Modest aroma, light resin and green vegetation. (6+) Pretty mild flavour, modest bitterness throughout, light resin and hop character. (6+) Average plus palate. A decent pale ale, but a fairly weak IPA. Bottle via trade with mgermani

gnoff (9552) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2011
Draught as a 5 oz sampler at Pyramid in Sacramento, CA, on April 23, 2011
Clear deep golden color, white head. Soem hops at first, but then mainly dry bitter taste. Hints of fruits in the aftertaste. Way too bitter. Smooth mouthfeel, huge bitterness. Sweet and a bit hoppy scent.
Unbalanced and not for me.

BVery (9514) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Orange pour with a white head. Pine resin nose. Nice easy drinking hop flavor - not over the top but good character.

DuffMan (9499) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2008
A solid rep of the style, with a slighty soapy character to the dominant cascade profile, and a shorter-than-average finish. Nice bitterness though.

phaleslu (9310) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Had a pint at Palomino in downtown Cincinnati. Golden-orange pour. Mild aroma, hoppy with a little citrus. Gave the impression of a fairly straightforward IPA until I actually drank it. Very poor IPA overall; tasted as if an unpleasant chemical were added that afternoon. Somewhat bitter with no reward. Unnatural aftertaste. Disappointing- easily the worst Pyramid beer I’ve tasted.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2004
A clear orange-copper colour. Citrus aromas include lemon, orange, and grapefruit. Full malty flavour with a fantastic citrusy hop character as well and enough bitterness to finish it off. Quite a tasty brew.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Pours hazy orange with white head, aroma is grassy, pine, touch of citrusy hops. Taste is very mild grassy hops, bit of pine, leading into a biscuit middle that finishes a bit bitter. Pretty weak hop character and bitterness for an IPA, more like an APA.

3fourths (9107) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2003
Clear copper. Bitter is just right; smells of moderately sweet hops, pineapple, and peaches. Taste doesn't deviate much from the aromas, and it turns out to be a very enjoyed IPA. I was suprised it was done so well by Pyramid.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
marcus (9015) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Pours golden with a decent off-white head and pineish (is that a real word?) aroma. It’s light on caramel malt, but heavy on the hops. So what you have is a bitter but lackluster beer.
