Bottle. Pours orange amber. Aroma is very piney with sharp citrus (grapefruit). Just a bit of malt for balance. Better than most, but not the best.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 A little bit too thick and syrupy for me. Not a bad ipa if you like yours a little heavier.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of foamy off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated hazy dark orange brown colored body. The aroma was mild with mild hoppy and caramel notes. The mouth feel was mildly tingly from the hops and the flavor was mild hop and caramel malty.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2008 Tap at David Copperfields. Pale orange colour. Fresh hoppy aromas of grapefruit, pine and tropical pineapple. Light pale malt, some orange peel as well. Really juicy smelling. Flavour delivers, hoppy and tropical with fresh pine and fantastic citrus/fruit flavours. Lots of sweet caramelly maltiness underneath the rich tropical hops. Well-balanced and quite tasty.
