Had this on cask. Clear amber color, thin white head. Big, assertive hop flavor, intense grapefruit and dandelion. Finishes with some alcohol burn but that may be the hops. Not much malt character, just caramelly sweetness. Oddly soapy aroma. A good IPA, just a little one-dimensional. Braudog (6835) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2006
On tap at Falling Rock Taphouse, 4/15/06: Orange-red with a sticky sided head. Almost spicey and heavy-handed. If an orange was sour, it would taste like this. Wonderful brew with little aroma. goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2006
GABF 2006: Clear light amber color with an off-white head. Big diacetyl aroma almost completely hides the hops. Sweet and hoppy flavor had a good balance. Mild bitterness on the finish. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, with earthy citrus hops. Flavor is malty, caramel, and a bitter earthy citrus hop finish. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2009
On tap at Bull & Bush brewpub. Pours a clear rusty orange body with a nice off-white, creamy ring of a head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma isn’t too bad. Nothing is in your face about it, but it has a pleasant amount of sweet caramel malts and light piney hops. Flavor is pretty solid. Nice balance and straightforward. Clean bready malts with lots of thick caramel. Moderate amount of citrus, light sharp piney hops that linger for a good amount of time. Palate is full and dry. Overall, a solid IPA for a quiet brewpub in Denver. Definitely my favorite offered by them.

Bottle through trade, hazy dark amber pour with a white head. Aroma of citrus and some mineral qualities. Taste of some light citrus, malt and an ok bitter finish.

Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of citrus and touches of fruit. Bitter and estery aftertaste.Decent. DrunkSanta410 (972) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Pours a dark hazy copper. Aroma is nicely balanced roasted malts, light pine and citrus. Taste is pine, toasted malts and faint resin. Nice. Palate is medium body, medium carbonation. Very smooth, not super hoppy but nice. Iphonephan (7283) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2015
