Cloudy Orange/Gold color with White Ring. Pine, Citrus and a Very Compelling Floral Aroma. Medium Mouthfeel.. Lightly Carbonated. Sweet Malt Undertones...Very Nice Floral Hops..Sweet Dry Aftertaste..and a Malty Flavor That I Can Only Decipher as Rye. Solidly Wonderful IPA.

mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 17, 2007
Kind of pale for an IPA, but I poured it in a really thin glass, so that just might be my perception. Nice head. Standard IPA fruity smell. A nice balanced amount of hops. Falls right in the range of hops that I like to see in a beer. Definately not a sweet IPA like some others, which have both hops a a syrupy sweetness. Nice medium body.

mbrandon2w (109) - Worcester, Massachusetts, USA - APR 10, 2007
The aroma is piney and the taste is very hoppy and resiney. Nice crisp flavor and a beautiful deep gold color. Overall a very enjoyable IPA with plenty of hoppiness, but not so much that it couldn’t be a sessionable IPA.

blankboy (6144) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear golden-orange with an average size somewhat-lasting white head. Mild citrus hop aroma backed by sweet malt and yeast. Flavour’s also on the mild side with light citrus hops and yeast backed by sweet malt. Light to medium bodied. There’s nothing really wrong with this, it’s easy to drink and it tastes fine but it’s somewhat dull.

swoopjones (5987) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2007
12oz Bottle. Nothing outstanding to write. Citrus hoppy, orangish in color. Blah blah blah

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - FEB 18, 2007
From the bottle, pours a light, opaque orangish color, thin white head. Citrusy aroma, some floral hops in there too. Taste is much the same. Dry aftertaste, with light citrus and floral hops dominating. Not bad, but uninspiring brew.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Slightly hazy amber with a large lasting foamy straw-coloured head. Herbal / tea-like hop aroma, dry and bitter, slightly sweet and citrus yeasty malt - more in the UK vein than the west coast resin-monster style - even a hint of lactic sourness as it warms. Tastes of orange juice, tea, rye and ever so slightly of cedar bark - not an aggressive flavour or linger at all, seems like a somewhat citrusy bitter. Average - and soft - body, dry and decently carbonated, it finishes slowly yet doesn’t start strong so it seems to have no legs at all; deceptive .. and quite pleasing on the tongue. It’s actually quite a nice session drink, these guys make some pretty solid beverages.

guzzler67 (1509) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Well laced, clear amber appearance with an average size white head. Briar patch aroma, maybe some shortbread, but less citrusy than many IPA’s. Clean, crisp, dry, well carbonated mouthfeel. Taste is earthy, spicy, moderately hopped, with a bitter, lingering finish.

Sammy (8725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2006
Good bitterness with a casing of malt. Enormous head. Good mouthfeel for an IPA and lots of creamy foam at the beginning and end. Golden orange. CItrus aroma and citrus tangerine taste. Very good fish accompaniment.
