Thank you Yngwie for sharing this great beer! It has been on my wish-list, and I’m not disappointed! It’s warm orange with a nice head and a fruity, hoppy aroma with loads of citrus, tangerine being dominant. The flavour is nice, harmonic and delicious with lots of fruit/citrus, again tangerine is the most dominant. It also has nice caramel notes that balances the bitterness nicely. It’s very charming and harmonic - yummi!!!! 2444

12 oz bottle- Door County. Cloudy orange & fluffy head. A blast of floral aroma hits you right away. First taste was very dry, with strong hops present throughout. Nice carbonation- a lot of bite to this beer. I like the other reviewers’ use of "grapefruit" in describing the taste- quite accurate. Really nice beer. nearbeer (5600) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 2, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 Bottle. Cloudy copper with a medium and lasting head. Aroma of pine resin, fresh grapefruit and sweetened whole-grained granola. Flavor is grapefruit dominating some honey-drenched, bitterish pine cones, and Fruit Loops. Nice balance; the bitter resin counters the fruit loops perfectly in the aftertaste. Palate is just shy of medium-bodied, sort of watery, and dry on the finish. bp (923) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2008 Bottle: pours a cloudy orange with a thin, lasting head, hoppy aroma with some citrus, taste is quite hoppy and slightly bitter. Very nice IPA. I’ll buy it again. tagz (337) - Alabama, USA - AUG 1, 2007
draft. clear orange gold with moderate fluffy white head. floral hop aroma. solid citrus taste - grapefruit flavor with a light/moderate bitter. crisp finish, sugar levels are in good check. great carbation as well. this one is just perfectly balanced. all the elements are distinct but not overbearing. i think many breweries think that if you hop the hell out of it, it will automatically be a good ipa. (the sebago i just tried is a good example). this guy sets the bar for ipa’s imo. is goot. belly goot.

Bartzilla’s Death Metal Beer Day June 07. Shared with Bartzilla, Naven, WeeHeavySD and others. 12oz bottle. Deep golden brew with a floral hoppy aroma. Flavor is sweetish with a clean hoppy finish. wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Draft...light, cloudy presentation with fair head, this ale packs a mighty hop punch with an herbal aftertaste which reminds me of oregano or basil. The finish is thick and velvety. I liked this beer much more on draft than out of the bottle for some reason. natedoggkc (165) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Poured a real hazy orange and real nice fluffy head. Great citrus hop aroma. Real nice hop flavor and some malt comes through to balance it out a little bit. This is a great beer!!! HopDevil1979 (117) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2007
A tasty beer, but I’m stunned by the 99 overall rating. Pours hazy, unfiltered and light, light amber, huge head. Ultra hoppy, fruity, sweet aroma. Flavor is good, but faint and watery. The palate is excellent, as the light flavor instantly disappears after a swig, nothing lingers. I’d like an Imperial version of this beer. mgermani (1010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2007
Pours a cloudy orange with a small foamy head. Aroma is fruity & sweet but more than balanced by pungent floral hops. The taste is wonderful - medium crystal malt in such a quantity as to give great character and balance to the excellent hopping - very doughy and heavy but not cloyingly sweet. This has a great body, thin but not too thin, and decent carb. I have never tasted such a balanced, full-bodied IPA.
