22 oz bomber poured deep gold with thin white head. It smells like wedges of grapefruit sitting on a bed of pine needles. Behind that there’s some sweet malt mixed with the grapefruit to create a sweet orange candy aroma. The flavor seems to be bitter pine and grapefruit hops that slowly sweeten to about midway. Then the bitterness builds but doesn’t get too out of control. The more of this beer I consume the more the grapefruit shines through. Tmoney99 (15119) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Bottle at Dilly Deli. Poured clear amber color with a moderate white frothy head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet small alcohol bite finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer. Stine (1801) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2007 On tap at the Muddy Pig. Golden yellow, hazy pour produces some pineapple and orange aromas, alcohol already apparent. Flavors of canned peaches and wine cooler, alcohol imposing itself with progressive confidence. It’s not immensely complex or balanced, but the pleasant citrus melodies of Amarillo are not fully suffocated. Stylistically typical. Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2007
On tap at Track 84 in Providence. Orangish copper wtih clear white head. Grapefruit, citrus and pine notes against a sweet malt backbone. Tastes much the same, which is good...but not overwhelming. nick76 (4403) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2007
The aroma has citrus and pine like hops with sweet caramel malt to balance. The appearance is light amber and gold with a two finger head. The flavor is like the aroma. It’s basic but good with bitterness up front followed by sweetness then a final bitterness. The palate is thin. I feel as though this one is a little too thin and the brewer was playing it safe by keeping the IBU below the level of other IIPA’s. Never the less, I did enjoy this one.

22 oz bottle. Light amber/orange in color. Aroma is a moderate amount of citrus, bready and caramel malt. Taste is moderately hoppy and bitter, citrus, with a pretty good malt backbone. Thought this one could use a bit more hop complexity. Solid though. Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Clear orange body with small white head. Nose was citrus, spices and yeast. Thin body, but a good ipa, not overly hoppy, which is good. Nice brew, but not an awesome duble, IMHO. ford9719 (371) - Vilseck, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2007
22oz. Poured a golden color with middle carbonation. Aroma of grapefruit and floral. Taste hoppy finish with a grapefruit taste and a little hint of sweetness. Palidor19 (3194) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2007
I’m really enjoying this one. the aroma is piney, with citrus notes. it pours wonderful with a golden rod color and an off white color. taste is pine tree, malt and all around bitterness that is balanced. the Alcohol is also really well hidden, this does not taste like a 10% ABV brentfeesh (1216) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2007
22oz bottle thanks to McBackus. Pours a hazy straw color with hints of orange and gold. Wispy white head. Aroma is dry and spicy with strong hoppy grapefruit. Ruby red grapefruit is predominate with a hint of sweetness. Malt body is negligible, mostly hops in this. Strong citrus rind and ruby red grapefruit. Medium body, creamy with a semi-dry finish. Good.
