As written many times before, this beer has a hazy orange/gold body and a thin head. Some cobweb-like lacing. Aroma is mostly citrus, but there’s some malt lurking in the background, too. Flavor profile is made up largely of grapefruit rind and dried apricots. Very nice malt and hop balance, actually. With so many good IPAs on the market, it’ll probably be a while before I get back to this one; however, I will welcome it when the time comes.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2007
Hazy orange beer with thin but firm white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with notes of acid and spices. Bitter flavour with notes of fresh hops and citrus. Sweet and fruity. Then comes the bitterness from hell. Ooooh I love it. This is a real IPA, the english way.

MiP (13999) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2007 Bottle, SBWF 06. OK hop aroma. Hazy golden colour. Hoppy flavour rounded off by maltiness. Well-balanced.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Nice hoppy aroma. Apricot and grapefruit and some resin. Fruity. Mild malt sweetness. Clean but mild. Golden amber hazy with thin white head. Medium-light watery body with medium-light carbonation. Starts with mildly sweet malts. Fruity notes, like apricot and orange peels. Bitter hoppy notes come into the finish, almost harsh. Bitterness lasts into the after, leaving a fruity bitter residue on the tongue. Slightly chalky. A bit weak but a decent quaff.

Lubiere (10734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2006
A golden ale with a thin white head. An herbaceaous hops aroma, with light caramel notes, and some light gin alcohol. In mouth, a light malt with british hopping, very classy, herbaceous. A tad on the lighter side, but overall pleasant. Bought at BOTW in Feb. 2006.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 21, 2006
Tasted 21/12/2006. Happy birthday Shona. 500ml bottle from Rumble’s latest shipment. Deepish end of pale gold, with a touch of haze from the dash of yeast I let through. Soft airy white head Strong esters on the nose, hints of pear and pollen, and a huge minerally dry-hop aroma. Lolly-like malts and old oranges also make an appearance. Then in the mouth its all pithy bitter oranges and burtonised water... very pithy, very minerally, very hoppy... until an extremely long, long, lingering bitter finish. Not harsh bitterness but pretty strong. A touch of yeast astringency in the mix too. Yum. Headstrong IPA, in the Burton Bridge mould.

Tmoney99 (11563) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Bottle. Poured pale color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate floral hoppy aroma. Medium body with a dry texture. Medium bitter flavor with a bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable beer.

fonefan (37673) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2006
Draft. Pale yellow color with no head. Aroma was a mix of American and British hops. Smooth flavour of hops, flowers and hay with slight citrus, lime.
