COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Exploding with hop flavor and aroma, this citrus/piney/floral ale has enough of a malt backbone to stand up to the intense bitterness.

Pours hazy gold with a thick frothy beige head. Aroma of toffee and piney hops. Taste seems a little faded on the hop side of things, lots of dark fruit, some bitterness. I will try this again fresh. Still a good beer but has obviously lost it’s hop crispness and turned into more of a barleywine. Just looked at the bottle, says bottled on 5/20/10, so 6 months old.

Bottle shared by DalzAle (thanks Greg). Pour is honey orange with a nice soapy head. Aroma is solid citrus and grapefruit and some honey. Taste is more grapefruit and citrus and a nice mixed malty finish. Palate is medium feel with a creamy malt and chaulky finish.

Bottle. Dark orange pour, a little carbonation and a soapy hop aroma. Flavor is vibrant sweet bitter orange, solid malt backbone and finished with a floral aftertaste.

Pours a transparent deep copper amber with a pillowy froth of beige head. Has a fresh grapefruity hop nose and lots of sweet toasty caramel malt underneath. Starts with good fullness and plenty of sweet caramel notes slowly giving way to a piny citrusy hop flavor and eventual bitterness in the finish. Has enough sweetness to be a double IPA, but could use a little more balance. Overall a pretty good brew though.

hayduke (3317) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 11, 2010
From a trade via Strykzone. Thanks. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized white head and lots of lacing. The nose is citrus and pine. Rich body and creamy mouthfeel with a little alcohol burn. Flavor is malts ands hops, and in good balance. The finish is dry and very bitter, almost too much so.

GJF (1217) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Very nice. Pours a clear copper, thin white head. Aroma and flavor are both piney and grapefruit. A thick, creamy malt body, well balanced and finishing with a semi-dry hop burst. Well done.

Hazy reddish orange with a nice frothy off white head with great lacing. Amazing pine, citrus and roasted malts in the nose. Medium hop bitterness on the palate, medium sticky......some tropical fruit notes on the back end as well.

12 oz. bottle. This one kinda suprised me. A hoppy refreshing ipa. Full flavored. A bit on the lighter side akmost like a pale ale, but still pretty good.
