Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Atlanta, GA. The appearance is a clear copper color with a large white head. The aroma is a nice blend of citrus and pine hops. The taste is very close to the nose. A very good beer.

Can. Pours clear, light gold with great head retention. Huge citrus & hop nose, monster grapefruit & orange with big hop kick. Sweet, light malt follows, takes the edge off the hops, but leaves plenty of bitterness. Medium/light mouthfeel. Very good IIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours honey-color with white head, two-fingers, foamy, lingering. Aroma of sweet coconut-y hops with high alcohol background. Sweet laidback flower hops into high alcohol bite of coconut-flavor finish boom of caramel-y malts.

halfonit (1408) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 7, 2012
In a can (seems to be the norm with these guys). Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber color. Aroma is of hops, grass, citrus, a little pine, flowers, and malts. Flavor has a nice and crisp hop taste with some grapefruit, grain, pine, and malts. Leaves a nice and grassy hop finish. Similar to DogFish Head’s 90 min. Good stuff.

Leighton (22301) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2012
Tap at The Pony Bar UES, NYC. Great beer. Light wood notes throughout, lots of grapefruit, restrained alcohol character. Modest woody dryness rounds out the resinous and piney hops. It’s sweet, but not sugary. Good stuff.

Jesterdeal (1986) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2011
This is everything I look for in an imperial IPA. Aroma of grapefruits and sugar. Pours bright orange with a small but foamy head. Tastes sweet with plenty of bitter citrus and malt. I love this beer.

Cybercat (6139) - Georgia, USA - JUN 19, 2011
Comes out of the tap a beautiful clear golden with a thick, fine-bubbled, off-white head that sticks around and leaves some respectable lacing. Aroma is seriously hoppy with a firm undertone of grapefruit and more than a hint of sour orange. Flavor is about half strongly hoppy and half grapefruit, and fairly bitter but having just a whisper of honey sweetness. Texture is ragged and fizzy, leaving behind a hop-bitter tingle. If you love hoppy beers, this will help you deal with any crisis!

bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Draft. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Oak and grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and pine flavor with summer fruit. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and pine lingers with light malt and light oak.

944play (427) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Draft at Toad in the Hole. Billed as "Imperial IPA aged on Oak." Hazy deep gold with medium white head and prodigious lace. Pleasing fresh stonefruit aroma mostly overarches nacho cheeziness. Flavors are similarly conflicted but largely positive; juicy peach and simple stemmy bitterness squash bilious and plasticky elements. Finish is exemplary for style and leaves one craving the next gulp. Without having tried the original beer, I can propound that this is a judicious and advantageous application of oak aging.
