660ml bottle from City Beer, San Francisco, CASask89 (529) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 27, 2012
Pours light orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of fresh and fruity hops, caramel malts and floral notes. Taste of fresh hops with floral notes, malts, caramel, toffee and fruits. Dry, bitter and hoppy finish with fruity notes. Well balanced and tasty IPA.
Pours a light amber colour, almost golden, clear and with a frothy white head. Strong grapefruit and orange aromas, with subtle hop scents too. Taste is bitter with little sweetness, a pretty good balance for an IPA. Lighter body, creamy and smooth on the palate, with lively carbonation. A very strong IPA overall.

Draft/bottle$ I’ve had it plenty of times, rating it now off both. Copper shiney brown color with light head and lacing that lasts on the sides of glass. Sweet, smooth, peachy and delicious. Great perfectly balanced west coast ipa boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 Re-rate. Draft at craft ale house. Pours hazy orange with a medium sized white head, great retention, big bubbles. The aroma is very floral, has some grapefruit, pine, lemon, some spicy notes. The taste on this blows the style away. The bitterness is hard to describe as there is such a complex hop bill. There is a nice citrus balance that fades to more bitterness. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2012
Bottle shared by ? At abraxas. Golden with slight haze. Resinous, dry floral hop aroma is intriguing. The nelson sauvin white wine quality is predominent and nice. Body is chewy in a good way. The balance is great.

Stringing the senses of hops, fruits, and sweet flowers. It appears as a darker honey color. The taste is of hops but with a twist of a lemony acid sting. Encoats the palate is hops and the flavor stays even after the drink is gone. Overall, this beer is great on a warm summer day and you just need something to drink to refresh yourself.

translucent gold with a thick dense head. medium-full body with high carbonation.JohnRMurdoch (4997) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 14, 2012
aroma: bright citrusy apricot slight-pine hops, sweet pale malt with a rather helles-like character.
taste: grassy piney hop bitterness, a definite woody note, pale malt, mild minerality, and a touch of yeastiness.
Bottle from BrewDog Edinburgh. Strong hoppy aroma. Cloudy amber brown colour, good head. Tropical fruit & hop flavour, bitter aftertaste. Decent IPA. matthewsmith (13) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 12, 2012
This looked amazing in the Hallertau Willi Becher glass it came in. Juicy tropical, resiny, citrus aromas and flavour, dry, crisp and punchy. Drinks down so easily. jmohno (1649) - Iowa, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Hazy orange with mild head/lacing.
Aroma smells pretty tastey,with fruit candied sweet bready pastry,slight peppery spice,nice overall hop aroma.
Initially a tart citrusy presence,then some light sweet malt witha light bready toastiness,grassyness followed by orange citrus/mild piney bitterness,nice floral tones even in the bittering flavor.Seems a bit undercarbed with a slightly noticable flatness to it. I have no idea how long this has been room temp shelved though,it held up prettty well. I would drink this anytime.Very nice ipa
