A- Pours a clear readdish orange hue with a nice 1.5 finger head.
S- Smells hoppy, mostly grapefruit and citrusey notes.
T- Taste starts out bitter and citrusey and goes downhill from there. Pretty one dimensional. The middle and the end are fairly bland.
M- Fairly thin with lots of carbonation.
D- Decently drinkable. I could session this but after one I wasnít incredibly impressed. Not bad at all however nothing really stuck out to me.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a 1/2 inch off white head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy but not overwhelming. Taste is hoppy with a bitter bite and a bit malty. Thin on the palate. heemer77 (5355) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2008
Bottle. The body is light copper with a lightly off white head. The aroma was grapefruit with some caramel. The taste has some sweet bread crust with a toasted finish. There are hints of orange peel with the light body. Itís ok. RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - APR 18, 2008
Not bad, but a bit meh for an IPA. Orangish gold with a thick off-white head. Light hop aroma and taste, more of an amber than an IPA, really. Flavor is subtle hops over malt. Nothing remarkable, but not bad. rman18 (312) - Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2008
Bottle poured into a shaker - Pours golden amber, slight orangy red. Large head for an IPA - but disipates quickly... Strong hoppy aroma. Flavor is like most IPAs of hops. Flavor is hoppy as well with a taste of alcohol. Nice Beer, I honestly didnít expect it to be as good as it is. Will have again - not sure why the others rated this low... make sure to check the expiration date before buying... Mine expires in a month.

Bottle...very one-dimensional brew, and not a good example of an IPA. A honey-like sweetness predominates with the smell and taste of sour apples. Light head. Alcohol, though 6.5%, is not noticeable. Some bitterness on the finish. I canít wait to finish this six-pack because I do not want it to take up any more space in the beer fridge. RAYBOY01 (2011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2008
Fairly light hop nose...mild pine and citrus. The pour is attractive enough...coppery gold with a moderate and quickly fading head. The flavors are pretty muted for the style...light pine and grapefruit, caramel and toffee...but all very subdued. Iíd like to see a much bolder step taken in this direction by this brewery! argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - APR 13, 2008
(12oz bottle, thanks Peregrinari) Small beige head atop clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, juicy orange/grapefruit, light pineapple. Taste is medium sweet, orange, some grapefruit, bread, earthy. Light-medium body, some stickiness. Peregrinari (148) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 13, 2008
I found this beer good but not particularly original. The aroma was citrus with mild caramel and hops. The appearance is really nice with a bit of cloudiness and a nice orange light brown amber color. The flavor is a bit sticky but is citrus and hops with caramel and pine. Finish is fairly smooth but drying and sticky at the same time (donít ask me, that is what I experienced). I would drink this beer again. Not bad but not spectacular or original.

Clear vibrant copper color with smallish head and no lacing. Mildly hoppy aroma. This one was pretty well balanced with a lot of toasty bready malts, moderate sweetness and some citrus and some earthy style hops. Not overly exciting, but not terrible.
