22 oz. bottle, pours hazy golden orange. Nice aroma of grapefruits, citrus, and piney hops. Flavour is less appealing, with a syrupy body of cloyingly sweet caramel which has overtaken the hop profile. Not bad, though disappointing for the style. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2012
Sweetish aroma with herbal and slightly citrusy notes. A little dull on the palate. Decent amount of bitterness. Some caramel malts. Finishes mostly dry. bhensonb (15098) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 26, 2011
As Pilot Series Imp IPA from Nugget Market in West Sacramento, CA. Pours almost clear copper with a 1 finger creamy beige head. Mixed aroma of floral, citrus and resin hop. Med body with creamy carb. Flavor is fresh fruit and floral over some mildly roasted malt. Now I remember why fresh IPA is good. This is lush hop. Floral, nearly perfumey. Maybe a little resin on the side. Yummy stuff.

Sample from a bottle at Jackie O’s as part of Ohio Brew Week. The beer is a slightly hazy copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops, malt and citrus. Medium body with flavors of hops, pine, caramel malt and a touch of fruit. The finish is hoppy up front with a sweet malty flavor left behind.
