Drought. Reddish amber with creamy beige head that retains long time, hops aroma, sweetish hoppy taste with pine at the background, long sweet finish. Very nice on palate.

tia (1126) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle. Copper with thin foamy white head and light lacing. Smells a tad biscuity then a little lemony, grapefruity, and fresh. Tastes a little perfumey then goes into the dry/bitter. Hard mouthfeel, moderate bitter finish. Not bad, but there are others I like better. (Caveat- I just ate jalapenos and the burn is still in my mouth- so grain of salt.)

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Pours orange, white head....this is an IPA thatís relatively complex...not just bitter and dry, but floral, citrusy with a significant body to it. The bitterness is still there, and itís well places, but the other parts of the body are there as well. Less sessionable and better for one or two glasses because of the body. Very good beer.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle from Scott. Aroma of ripe grapefruit, as well as some in the taste, but this one falls flat on the palate. Bitter waves, which leave me unimpressed. Good idea, but unexecuted. Okay beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
