Pours light bubbly amber with very little head out of bottle. Hoppy yet citrus smell with a lighter hoppy taste. Almost a little too watery for an ipa. Wish it had a more robust flavor but still a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

backdaft (286) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber in color. Thin disappearing head leaves ring of lace. Aromas is pine resin and grapefruit. Taste is sweet malt and pine resin. A bit of alcohol shows as it warms. Decent IIPA, but there are better!

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2013 Bottle at home. Pours cloudy deep orange with minimal head. Aroma is mild citrus and pine. Taste is very sweet with minimal bitterness - hard to believe it is a DIPA.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt, pine resin and citrus. Flavor is balanced between sweet malt and bitter hops with light alcohol warming. Medium body with a slightly syrupy mouth feel. Decent IIPA, lots of hops and a bit on the sweet side.

NachlamSie (3172) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle at Eddie McStiff’s. Pours orange with a small head. Pretty good hop aroma, grapefruit and herbs. Malts are apparent too. The flavor is enjoyable, but I could use more hops. Still there is a pleasant citrus bite. It’s balanced for the style.
