On Nitro tap at brewery. Beautiful golden pour with thick, puffy, white head that only nitro can do. Nose is citrus, pine, and some tropical fruits. Taste follows the nose but the hops are dialed down a little compared to other IPAs. Mouthfeel is crazy good and creamy. sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2013
12 oz bottle Whole Foods. Golden pour, lively bubbles, medium-sized white head with nice retention; medium lacing all the way down. Aroma floral, lemon, piney, bread, caramel-like sweetness. Solid malt backbone; clear, bitter, clean hop finish. Medium body, smooth, granual carbonation. Overall, nothing about this jumps in your face, but it screams clean and balanced. Not the most memorable beer and I struggle with this being 100th percentile overall, but this is an extremely solid textbook IPA. greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 25, 2013
If you havenít had this west coast style ipa, you are missing out. This is one of my favorite ipaís out there. Easy to drink, get balance, and big hop bite and aroma. A must have in the fridge at all times. Panzerfaust (848) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - AUG 9, 2015
12 fl. oz. bottle from Club de Cervezas. Pours a clear, sparkling orange color with a medium sized white frothy head that diminishes slowly and leaves a good creamy film. Intense and powerful hoppy aroma, a real hop perfume. Notes of grapefruit, ice-cream bean, lemongrass, cedar, green apples, rose apple, pine cones and even basil. Really great, purely hoppy. Taste is very bitter, intense and bold without being a hop-juice. Herbal bitterness leaves some space for soft to mild fruit tartness to be perceivable. An all hop brew, with barely any malty hints. I can say, in a hop-head mood, I love it and see little ground to improve it, but itís not the pinnacle of complexity. Medium body and carbonation. Very very drinkable and admirably brewed. I would have this anytime I need a hop fix. Aftertaste is massively hoppy. More bitter and slightly less tart than the Grapefruit Sculpin. My new IPA type-specimen.

Clear, orange colour with big, stable head. Nice lacing too. After opening the bottle, it feels big punch of citrus (grapefruit!), exotic fruits (mango, maybe even passion fruit), some floral note and malty base on background. Taste is light to medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light dry. Finish is very long, biiter, but not harsh or tart. Soft carbonation. Medium to full body. Fantastic, very drinkable, no doubt one of the best IPA Iíve ever tried.

Lots of lemony grapefruit and pine in the nose. Looking for a little more malt to balance all those hop flavors. Some honey up front in the taste.
however the bitterness does not over power the taste. Clean and very dry finish. Very good. There could be a couple of IPAs I like better, but this is up there. Macegan75 (843) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Pours a nice golden amber with little lacing. The nose is strong with floral and citrus. Grapefruit and mango definately mango and a little orange peel. The hops lingers forever, I love this beer. grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2007
Clear, strongly-hued sunshine yellow. Very sharp, dank, resiny aroma. Tangerine, orange zest, basil (?!) - all come through in very modular, defined aroma. Thinnish, elegant but dusty maltiness, anchored by rich notes of mango, tangerine and cantaloupe. Creamy, judiciously carbonated finish. stoutnick (842) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2014 Golden. Aroma is peach with superb clarity. Taste is peach, bitterness, mild floral - perfect! Good moderate level of bitterness. Palate is mild bitterness with great finish. Overall, best straight up IPA Iíve yet had. Wowzers! RRistow12 (842) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a clear orange with white head. Aroma or tropical and citrus fruits and some sweet notes. Taste is a nice clean assertive bitterness throughout with a caramel backbone. Pine, grapefruit, mango, and biscuity flavors. Medium bodied. Very well done IPA.
