Tap at OBF. Pours light amber with a slight eige head. Aroma seems citrus. Med + body. Flavor is backbone roast malt with citrus/resin hop. Lots of hop. It’s strongly flavored. Quite bitter.

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is an amber sort of color with a nice finger’s worth of off-white head. S: A very pleasant citrus hop aroma of grapefruits and oranges along with a very nice pine note. A bit of sweet caramel malt underneath. T: There is a bit more malt sweetness than I generally prefer for an IPA, but the piney hops provide a really excellent bitterness to the beer. The citrus notes are more subtle, but quite pleasant. M: Medium both in terms of body and carbonation with a nice bitter finish. D: This was really nice and I always enjoy trying a beer from a (new to me) brewery. I would definitely give this one another go.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle shared at Craft, many thanks to Craig. Pours hazy gold with a sturdy, white foam head. Big, sugary grapefruit nose. Sweet flavor though lightly drying with pale malts, further grapefruit and other, rindy citrus. Full bodied with average carbonation. Fairly sticky, resinous on the finish, more grapefruit. Good DIPA.

Half liter bottle from Ale Yeah! Pours a.... GUSHER! Pours a clear amber color with a monstrous foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus and pine hops. The taste is citrus and piney hops, grapefruit, mild toffee malts and something slightly off.
