Bottle picked up at City Beer Store in San Fran. Pretty amber pour with a large and vibrant white head. Vivid orange and grapefruit nose with perhaps a hint of other fruits as well. Nice orange and malt biscuit flavor, extremely well-balanced and very tasty. durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Bottle from South Bay. Pours dark golden with orange tint and bubbly white thin head. Reminds me of cask pour. Sweet citrusy nose with smooth resin and tropical fruits. Really tasty. Slick mouthfeel; not sticky at all. Easy to drink. I want more. fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of citrus oils, floral hops, some herbal spicy hops, lightly sweet malt, quite complex and interesting on the hop front. Flavor continues with the citrus oiliness, very resinous at first, transforming to juiciness at the end, with building bitterness at the finish. Incredibly smooth, the mouthfeel really puts to shame the endless amount of IPA’s out there that boast varying levels of astringency and/or excessive sweetness. Really nice.

Bottle. Pours a clear light orange with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of tons of citrus, some lime, grapefruit, tropical fruit, and caramel malt. Heavenly. Flavor is nice and citrusy, sweet at first with a tinge of bitter hops in the finish. Quite tasty!

Bottle shared with MatSciGuy
Pours a deep amber color, clear but some floaties from the residue on the bottom (no problem for me). Lasting whitish head with decent staying power. Aroma all hops, piney, resinousy, mild citrusand a touch of floral. Taste is a good balance of malt sweetness, great flavor from the hops that is a nice bitterness - not bracing but smooth.

[Bottle] brought back from S.F. Pours a nice orangey amber with a finger of sticky beige head. Aroma is grapefruity with some pine resin, and a touch of florals. Flavor is pulpy orange, some sweet malt backbone creates a rich mouthfeel, some spiciness, and a little bit of yeast character. Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Thanks to my bro for hooking this one up! Pours a rich coppery color with medium offwhite head with nice traces of lacing. Aroma is of over ripe and slight acrid fruit. Some tropical fruit and citrus come through. Taste is citrus, earth, lemon and mild malt. Full bodied and astringent, this beer is a let down.

tThanks to alexsdad06 for this! Pours a copper color with a medium frothy white head which leaves lots of bubbly lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, and some floral characteristics. Taste is some nice citrus hops, grapefruit........but there is a weird bitterness and some astringency. It’s just not too smooth. Solid overall. JaBier (7973) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2009
22oz bottle. Semi-opaque copper pour with a big white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops with a malt balance that almost has a hint of creaminess. Citrus hop flavor with a sweet malt balance and the bitterness lingers on your tongue. Very well done.
