yngwie (16989) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2013
On tap at City Beer. A hazy, orange beer with a small, light beige head. The aroma is a bit sweetish, but with lots of pine cones and citrus peel. Its rather bitter in the mouth, full-bodied and lightly warming. Nice carbonation too. Sugary malty sweetness, pine cones and lemon peel. Lasting finish where the bitterness beats the sweetness. Overall, too sweet, but I like it anyway. 130805

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Hazy orange pour with a tall white head. A very nice nose to this. Plenty of citrus, pine, and floral hops. A slight bready malt sweetness, some herbs, and a touch of wood. The flavor is very bitter and a bit too grassy. Somewhat sweet with a fair amount of bread and toasted malt. Some decent citrus, herb, and pine hop flavors, but too much bitterness and not enough hop flavor.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 21, 2012
On tap. Cloudy orange with a creamy white head. Earthy grainy citrus and pine aroma and taste with a nice musty bitter bite and a bright medium bodied palate. Not bad.

Hazy yellow/golden color, nice lacing. Beautiful blend of floral and hay notes in the nose. Taste is citrus bitterness with grain. Very refreshing.

beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Tasted from the firkin at the Triple Rock Firkin Fest April 7, 2012. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from the firkin. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and citrusy. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and herbal. Mild carbonation. Touch of lingering bitterness. Good balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

joet (2600) - Wilsonville, California, USA - APR 16, 2012
Sub golden, white head, nice presentation. Full piney, PNW and some light phenols - bubblegum - aromas, body is slightly creamy, some appreciable heft/fullness in body, sweet with ample sugars, biscuit sweetness, easy bitter finish. A bit too sweet and hefty for my tastes by the hop expression is still wonderful.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 5, 2012
On tap at the Toronado, SF. Nice bright pour, moderately cloudy gold with a lively carbonation and a lasting creamy head. Classic WC IPA, with a nose thats certainly as buoyant and floral as expected but with an additional sharpness. This certainly is borne out in the taste, as the Citra brings a nice quality to the malts and makes for an overall balanced brew.

marcus (10051) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 28, 2012
On tap at Monks Kettle. Pours cloudy blonde with a decent off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with massive hop bitterness. It works pretty well if you are a hophead.

msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2012
On tap at Toronado. Pours lightly hazed golden with white head. Aromas of citrus and pine with tropical fruit and light malts. Flavors of mango, grapefruit, bready malts, and some bitter hops. Pretty solid IPA overall.
