I really liked this beer. Of but I have been off the elixer of the gods for several months now and by this time even a budweiser might taste good. The beer poor a nice orange color with a great looking off white head. The beer itself is hazy but nice. ARoma is of citrus hops with notes of caramel. Taste is well balanced, intensely hoppy but with a nice malt backbone. The plate suprised me on the upper end . All in all a nice beer especialliy for one lower in alcohol

January 2012. Bottle while in MN. Amber color with a white head. Nice aromas of hops, citrus and pine. A tad bland, but still with some strong bones and character.

Nuffield (3666) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Good aroma with considerable caramel-hop balance. Less enjoyable flavor in which the grassy hops soon overwhelm the core flavors. But ok anyway. Surprising abv. Bottle.

HopScripts (28) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2013
Overall, decent IPA, the aroma is a little boring and taste lacks some elements. I think it should be more balanced and it would be considered a better beer. Overall, decent for the IPA variety but still needs some work.

Patrickctenchi (3483) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Cloudy orange amber with a short, beige head. Scent is malt, caramel, orange-grapefruit. Nice bitter grapefruit peel flavour. Well balanced with the initial sweetness.

jgb9348 (4664) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Super hazy apricot coloured body with a bit of an orange glow and a thick, six centimetre tall tan head - very nice. Aroma of grassy and very citrus-based hops with some yeast notes, a little sweetness and some more grass. Medium-bodied; Good balance of malt, yeast and hops in the flavour with a lot of emphasis on lighter and more soapy malts. Aftertaste shows some citrus hop notes, a little hop pellet flavour and a hint of a spicey yeast strain. Overall, a decent IPA, perhaps a bit past it’s prime, but showing some good characteristics and then a few not-so-good. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Ridgeview Liqour in Green Bay, Wisconsin on 29-July-2012 for US$1.89 sampled at home in Washington on 18-February-2013.
