Aroma: very floral hoppyness, some malts. Appearance: Clear dark golden color with nice head that leaves a nice lacing when it dissipates a few mins later. Flavor: floral, hoppy, pine, malts. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, bitter.
Overall: this beer is good but not as good as the 60min or Stone IPA in my opinion. It seems like it’s lacking in complexity and finish. it’s mainly relying on it’s awesome aroma to win peoples vote. Grizzle (81) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - FEB 11, 2010
12 oz. -> Shaker. Pours a hazy peach, with an eggshell head - nice mix of pillowy head and fisheyes, such that if this head were a face, it’d have localized, blotchy acne: unfortunate when it’s red, fine when it’s head, unless, you know, it’s the other head. Then, red is still bad. Nice lacing. Smells of citrus-y, sour grapefruit, dried apricot, fresh-cut grass, with floral and evergreen aromatics. Tastes of sweet grapefruit, grass, with a sour, soda water-like note, and... yeah, the dried apricot is there too. I’ve been enjoying this beer’s cousins for several years now. If I lived 40 minutes to the east, I’d have this stuff in my beer ’fridge often. Slimbrundage (81) - USA - OCT 21, 2010
Golden yellow with a hint of orange. The nose is a complex mix of sweet citrus, tangarine, butter cream and fresh cut grass. Medium bodied. I taste lemon zest, orange and pine needle. The bitterness is not the star here and that in itself is refreshing. Nice mellow finish. Just a well crafted beer in every measurable aspect. shoeshineboy (81) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Wow! Delicious IPA. Beautiful Hop Aroma destinguishable from 10 feet away. Poured a Dirty Golden yellow with a fast disapating head. A gorgues Blend of subtle malts and Intense Hop additions has moved this to the Top of my list. Well Done! slipy120 (81) - Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2009 Pours light brown with a very light tan head. This beer is very hoppy with a very hoppy aftertaste. Tastes like a double IPA. Me not being a fan of IPAs did not particulary care for it but if you love hop infused beer you will like this.

Bottle. A hazy amber with large foamy head. Huge aroma of citrus, pine and floral hops, and the flavor follows. Nice body, great feel. digita7693 (80) - Bonn, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2012
This beer has a special place in my heart, as it was the beer handed to me about 15seconds after I said "i do", but that aside it is delicious!
Appearance: slightly hazy golden, nice white head, pretty good lacing
Aroma: floral and citrusy hops, some nice tart grapefruit smells, very enticing
Taste: delicious. the citrus comes through, a nice bitterness, with a touch of malt sweetness.
Palate: very smooth, perfect carbonation, a great beer that one could drink several of and not get bored.
