Bottle at Flying Saucer, Houston.
Pours a deep cheddar orange with a nice, subtle grapefruit and pine. Flavor is slightly off and bitter grapefruit with an expired orange finish. Average mouthfeel. Funky, but not bad.

MHED (114) - lisle, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Can. pours opaque copper amber color forming an impressive long lasting frothy off white head. Aroma is a fruity blend of exotic fruit and citrus with a subtle suga cane malt. Starts spicey sweet with light carmel undertone balace; then lends way to a bitter grapefruit taste that finishes dry. Love the can!

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.

notalush (4766) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2009
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.

Clear amber with a fleeting head. Piney hoppy aromas. Medium body. Floral and pine hop twang flavors on a sweet caramel malty base. Nice.

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.
