Cloudy golden-amber. Big fresh hop nose is spicy, woody with light orchard fruits. This just drips with hops. Pithy, dry, herbal bitterness. Clean. Very dry in the finish. Minimalistic maltinesss and brash hoppiness. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 25, 2009
At Detroit Airport. Glowing orange with hazy texture. Thick head. Hoppy and pine nose. Prickly texture. Lots of hops in the flavour. Really good. Tangy, bitter finish. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2009
Nice fresh bottle at Dak’s--thank you Ryan and Felicia! Bright luminescent orange with white head. Bright hoppy aroma is full of tropical fruit esters esp. mango. Clean malt backbone. Sweet apples and pineapples too. The flavors follow: a nice grain backbone with a nice texture too. Excellent loving hop, hoppy yum yum. GranvilleTim (1855) - Granville, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Smelled the hops as I cracked open the bottle. dark golden in color with an immense white head. Tastes good with an ok aftertaste. trayns (246) - Beverly Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Bottle. Pours a great, golden deep yellow color. Aroma is big sweet and hoppy. Taste is bold. Complex body, big sweet up front but a nice deep, complex palate of haps. Great IPA, try this one out, Big, hoppy and sweet and flavorful

12oz bottle. Pours murky orange with a frothy beige head. Lots of carbonation. Not sure how old this bottle is, as it has tons of sediment floating about in it. Aroma is of citrus, hops, caramel, and grapefruit. Taste is of floral hops, citrus, pine, caramel, and malt. Lots of grapefruit in this beer. Has a nice hop taste, that is evened out by the caramel malt backbone. Not nearly as bitter or hoppy as it could be, but very tasty. danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Found some old notes. (9/28/07). Bottle. Poured a decent gold hue with some white head. Nose is floral hops. Flavors of orange and floral.

12 oz bottle - Hazy light amber color with medium sized off white head. Aroma has mild herbal hops, slightly nutty, chewy malts, bit of oak. Flavor is fairly malty, bit of hops, slightly oxidized, with a balanced finish. A decent english style IPA, but nothing great. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle thanks to Ryan and Felicia. What a delicious beer!!! A very nice apricot pour wtih a mostly white head. Aroma is full of mango and citrus hops. The flavor is wonderful. Citrus hops hit but don’t overpower as the malt swirls on the tongue nicely. Enjoyable, very enjoyable. bhensonb (15188) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Hazy amber gold color with a slim white head. Aromas of malt and citrus/pine. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is somewhat roasted malt and citrus/pine hop. It is more astringent than bitter/dry, and it is slightly puckerish. Really nice IPA in a malty way.
