Draft to pint. Looks good; a hazy burnt-orange with sticky off-white head. Smells of bitter hops and malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A decent IPA.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Bomber from my win in fantasy baseball, well 2nd. Thanks! Pours a clear orange-gold with a small but resilient off-white head. Aroma of sweet and caramel malts complement orange and grapefruit citrus, pine, and flowers. Flavor of orange, grapefruit peel, apricot, pine resin, caramel, biscuit, and a bit of floral notes. Medium-bodied, with a juicy, resinous mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2012 Pours with a perfect head. Cloudy goldenrod appearance. Hoppy but you can taste the island nature of this beer. Nice amount of hops

Bottle - Golden orange, slightly hazy, no head. Moderate hoppy aroma, not as prominent as many IPAs. Taste is good and crisp, but slightly lacking. Decent but nothing special.

buzz_and_hum (153) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 21, 2012
.Pale brown, fresh fully head. Fresh cut grass on the nose. In the mouth it is full and syrupy, with an immediate sharp note of grapefruit and orange. Long lingering bitter aftertaste. A nice strong IPA; almost an IIPA with such a thick body and solid structure. Quite nice, indeed.

Sampled at the Tucson Fest. This is tasty. Big bitterness and citrus fruit. Malts are lighter. A strong ipa but not a complex one.
