Bronzed hue with a solid, hop-pocked head. Floral, resiny nose that is redolent of fresh hop leafs and with a fluorish of summer honeysuckle. The body is considerably more dank and tannic than the aroma indicates. A touch of skunk cabbage and heavy co-humulons along with a tannic floral hop leaf flavor, ending with both acerbic, yet somehow alkaline twang that is bitter-sour and off-key. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Fruity floral hop nose, some perfumey soapy notes - noticed this in the Rampage recently as well - house yeast? INteresting. Malt back bone is lightly sweet, pale perhaps a touch of caramel. Pours golden orange, nice head and lace. The flavor is nice and fruity up front with a touch of pale malt sweetness, a hint of caramel, soapy potpurri flavor - again noticed in the Rampage. Nice flavors, odd yeast esters. Dry, a little dusty as well. Not bad at all, just interesting IMO. crackedmachine (536) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Pours a fairly clear light-orange. Bitter, piney aroma, with just a bit of sweetness coming through. Flavor is super piney and bitter, with little malt sweetness, and a medium body. A good choice if you are looking for a crisp, dry, and bitter IPA. Sledutah (7977) - Utah, USA - JAN 28, 2012
12oz bottle picked up in Vacaville scottw86 (1179) - Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Appearance: Clear golden with a small off-white head and spotty lacing
Aroma: Fruity, caramel and citrus
Taste: Dusty caramel, malty and citrus
Ok, not very hoppy
Poured a slightly dark hazy orange color with a medium-sized off-white head. Looks like a wheat beer. Aroma is very hoppy with resin and some grapefruit. Also some caramel and oranges. Taste has lots of citrus and hops. The flavor transitions into a fruity and sweet taste. Some grain flavors as well. A bitter finish, but the aftertaste is long and sweet with orange notes. Overall quite nice.

Bottle; clear orange type color with a big frothy head. Aroma of earth, fruit, orange, yeast, lemon, and some zesty type hints. Alot of citrus. Flavor had alot of bitterness too it; zesty and citrus/orange. Definitely has a bite to it and has some good orange notes. Pleasant surprise. reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2011
650mL bottle poured a golden color with about 2 fingers of white head that had some nice retention and some fine lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops and some grain. Taste is a nice balance of hoppy bitterness and malty sweetness. A slightly above average IPA that was a treat to sample. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 26, 2011
On tap: Pours a clear deep golden brass with a clingy-lacing white head. Has a fresh resiny grapefruity hop nose with some lightly sweet pale malts. Starts with good fullness and light malty sweetness with juicy hop flavor before a crisp bittersweet finish. A nicely balanced and enjoyable IPA. Blairgus (4615) - California, USA - SEP 20, 2011
20 Sept 2011, bottle. orange/yellow, a little cloudy w/ a tiny bit of sediment, steady bubbles, thick rocky head. nose is initially pink grapefruit hops and then fades into an oily citrus rind. thin/med body and fizzy, almost foamy in the mouth. white grapefruit citrus hops but not too much bitter finish. enough malt profile to give it body and some balance but not enough to really talk about malt taste or be competition for dry grapefruit hops.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a one finger off white head that has a nice retention. The aroma has lots of citrus and a good dose of sweet malt. The taste is nicely balanced sweet malt and citrusy hops with a slight graininess as well. Mouthfeel is nice and full, very crisp, and a dry finish.
