Tried a sample at Brewfest Tallahassee. Definitely English in style, don’t expect to be bowled over with hops. kdrobb2k (24) - Willingboro, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Pours dark amber. Aroma was pleasant and pungent. A good mouth feel and flavor with piney and citrus notes.. Pleasing and lasting on the palate. Strong alcohol content. Three of these left me very much inebriated. A very good, solid IPA for the price. FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with a small white frothy head. Aroma is nicely refreshing in that the hops aren’t just citrus IPA. The citrus is there, but its nicely balanced with piney hops and a nice caramel smoothness. Flavor starts with a nice soft english ESB like toast and dark fruits. Gains some hoppy resins and and a nicely bitter edge that never overwhelms the palate but compliments. Finishes smooth and creamy CH-303 (2362) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - OCT 5, 2009

(bottle). Clear copper color. Medium off white head. Grassy/earthy hop aroma and flavor. Avg duration. Light bitter finish. Slick texture. Soft carbonation. Spare lacing. BeerHawk (1811) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle, best by Nov 2009. Poured a copper orange with an off-white head. Perfume aromas with citrus rind and malt backing. The flavor had caramel, pine, and grapefruit. Medium body and medium bitterness throughout. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Smells hoppy. And soapy? Fruity and hoppy flavor. Aftertaste leaves a floral feel. Cavie (4808) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Clear orange pour. Decent hop aroma with elements of dry fruit. Wet hops for sure. Has some apple taste upfront with the brush of hops past the swallow. Finish is pretty astringent hops that remains wet. Decent with a less than stellar finish. CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2009
bottle: pint glass: pours a dark amber, leaving 2 fingers of dry, off white head. The nose is not giving enough hops/ bitters as expected, instead some more sweet qualities come through. The taste is much of the same... not a epic, battle ready viking, glory brew of hops... instead a well balanced hoppy yet, sweet, maybe citrus feeling beer. Interesting...
