didn’t deliver on the flavor as much as aroma, but good
slightly thin mouth feel
I would get it again

Amber color, decent creamy off-white head. Fruity-hoppy aroma. Malty background, some fruity-sweet hoppyness. Not extremely hoppy, so reasonably drinkable session beer.
This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2007

Golden colour. Creamy head. Aroma is very hoppy with notes of citrus (oranges). Flavour is more hops and oranges. Very nice bitterness.
12-oz. Thanks, FranksnBeans! Pours rubied amber with a thin white film after a bit of suds splash around atop for a second. Modest fruity nose, very subdued. Medium body, soft carb. Restrained flavors throughout--light orange pith and some caramelish business on the mid-palate, and a little resiny finish. Very restrained...in San Diego this would be an APA.

Bottle from Goldtwins. Thanks, Larry!NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Pours average amber with a nice white head and lacing. Aroma is strong candied grapefruit; very sweet. Flavor is a mix of grapefruit, hops, and Sweet-N-Low. Average mouthfeel. Good but not great. A very approachable IPA; I’d have this one at BBQs.
Bottle. This is about as typical as it gets for a decent IPA. Strong citrusy hop bite with a bit of maltiness to balance. This is a solid IPA, but needs something a little extra to stand out. golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Bottle. Citrus / grapefruity / grassy hops and a little bit of malt in the aroma. The malt flavor in this one is a little bready followed by the grassy citrus hop aftertaste. Good but not quite there.
