BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 20, 2009
On tap at Beachwood BBQ. Pours with a small, off-white head over a orange body. Aroma of herbal hops, floral and citrus. Taste is malty, caramel, grain and herbal hops. Lively bubbles and a dry mouthfeel.
Really a ton of flavor for 3.5%, all of us thought it was in the mid 4’s or low 5’s. Hermod (7879) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Tap@ bishops arms, gamla stan, Stockholm. Mahogany color, thick white head. Citrusy fruity hoppy aroma, some sweetness, floral notes. Flavor has grapefruit, blood orange, juicy as hell. Lovely session IPA. Could drink this every day. More please. RichTheVillan (7852) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2015

Draught @ the Blind Burro, San Diego, CA. Pours a hazy golden amber colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and some biscuit. Flavour of crisp citrusy bitterness, quite strong biscuit maltiness, pine and mild sweetness. Light bodied. Refreshing, but maybe a bit too malty.

Can at World of Beer, Savannah. Head is initially small, mostly diminishing. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with a note of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately astringent.
A rough, raw, overly bitter example with nothing much to offer in the nose other than the usual resin-grapefruit hop odor common to most American pale ales. Some diacetyl doesn’t help matters either. This one required a surreptitious visit to the restroom to dump it in the sink so I could move on to something else.
