Pours clear orange with a soapy head that hangs out for a bit. There is some nice sticky lacing left behind. The aroma is exceptional. Fruity hops and pine dominate the nose. The taste is light and fruity with a bit of a hop bite on the finish. Itís a bit thin on the palate with a medium body and not much malt backbone to speak of.

Tap @ Pine Box. Clear gold pour with an off-white head with great retention and leaving heavy lace. Nose is fruity and citrus hops. Medium body and light, fine carbonation. Resin, toast, grapefruit. Finish is medium and bitter. After a great start, this one becomes pretty average.

Pours an orangish color with a small white head that fades quickly. Aroma is sticky hops and malts. The taste is orange peel, grapefruit, and a good malt backbone. A good IPA.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste pine, citrus, lightly bitter. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aquilo (536) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Clear golden bronze color with a lovely frothy head. Very fragrant floral aroma with notes of blood orange and honey. Crisp bitter flavor. Velvety smooth mouthfeel. Best IPA Iíve had in ages.

Bought this on a whim and am pretty happy with the purchase. For the price, I wasnít expecting much, but this is a really solid IPA. Tastes fresh with all the usual "notes" that everyone else has already gone into. Pretty poundable, even with itís 7.3% abv. I could go back to this one and probably will as itís tasty and respectably priced for what youíre getting.

Strong IPA. Aroma of cirtus and pine; attractive pour; relatively high attenutation/dry taste with well balanced hop presence; good brew!

BLADT (511) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle pour. Clean gold-amber in glass with a thick, off-white head. Nose is reserved: earthy, basement notes with mellowed hops, some orange rind. Very nice, I just wish more pronounced. Taste picks up the slack. The subtle orange from the nose is in full force, along with a robust, grainy earthiness. A good helping of sugar cookies in the middle. Ends bitter. A worthy export.

Very light orange in color. So much so that it appears to be a light ale. Little white head. A strong hop aroma. A citrusy hops but a light flavor.
