CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2011
12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep bronze amber with a pillowy froth of white head. Has a sweet toasted caramel malty nose with some juicy grapefruity hops and a touch of oxidation. Starts with good fullness and sweet light caramel malts with some resiny bittering and flavor hop balance before a drier, bittersweet finish. A true to style and well-hopped IIPA.

cbfobes (2677) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2011
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a hazy orange with a nice white head and sticky lacing thro&ugh out the glass, the aroma has a nice kick of grapefruit and tropical fruit mixed in with the hops, the flavor is more of pine notes, the backend has a decent amount of fruit in the finish, really not all that bad, nice find for only $7 for a sixer.

Bright blast of grapefruit and mint in the hops,some forest pine tickles the nose,some caramel malting way at the bottom. thick intense bitter hop and plenty of caramel, sharp grapefruit rind mixed in with substanial malting and very bitter finish,something here for the balanced people and the hops over the edge crowd

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2012 12oz bottle. Golden amber colored brew with some white sticky head. Aromas of grapefruit and candy sweetness. Flavor is quite balanced - nice malt backbone with some spicy hops. Pleasantly surprised by this one.

Bottle. Pours a bright gold with a light head. Nose is almost candied; reminds me of lime Life-Savers or candied cherry. Lots of hop flavor; a definite green or vegetal overtone has just enough malt to balance it out. Finishes a little murky.
