Orangish pour. The aroma is really nice. Fruity and hoppy. A good dose of floral and citrus hops on the tongue with a really good caramel backbone. Clean and tasty.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a lightly hazy copper color - soapy, clinging lace - herbal, peppery hops in the nose, with some bright fruitiness and moderate caramel malt base - the flavor has an initial spicy hop kick, followed by medium sweet caramel - this is followed by a very bright, vibrant fruity character, grapefruit tang, a second blast of hops - fairly earthy - pretty tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2010 First sampled at Flying Saucerís Second Annual Fall Beer Festival in Austin on October 24, 2009. Let me first say that I love the head on this beer... itís frothy and billowy with an off-white color and holey lacing much like the surface of a pancake on the burner. It has an impressive clear, dark orange color with an almost red hue. Wow, what a dense head. A mild (yet almost held-back) aroma of hops. The type of hops used initially unidentifiable to me on first smell. The flavor is good, but light. I expected more. Still, a goodly IPA with a clean finish. Thereís nothing offensive about this beer. The hops gradually present themselves over time. Bold, yet tame with a moderate hop finish. Again, good, but Iíd personally probably grab something else with a little more of a pronounced hop presence than be teased by this beer.

12oz Can, Pours darkish gold, big resin hop aroma, Columbus, Amarillo hop profile, a bit skunky in a good way, garlic notes as well. Hops up front in the flavor with a decent malt backbone to support the hops. Nice job! Iíve had this in the bottle before and cans seem much brighter and fresher. $9.99/6pk at Hops & Vines, Asheville, NC.

12 oz. can from Samís Quik Shop in Durham. Dark orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of pine, tangerines, and pineapple. Bitter hop flavor of grapefruit rind, pine, and fresh cut grass. Clean but bitter aftertaste. This is actually quite good and a very pleasant surprise. An excellent IPA.
