Orange liquid, thick white head. Malty and hoppy aroma, pine mostly. Bitter taste, bit thin though. Nose was best part

blklab2007 (2118) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 17, 2010
bottle I believe came as a recent extra poured a clear amber in color with a light tan head. aroma has bitter hops, pines, citrus, and caramel. mouth feel is good with plenty of carbonation. flavor has a medium bitterness, resins, pines, caramel sweetness, and a nice lingering finish. this is dialed in pretty well and was a nice surprise.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2010
Bottle poured a hazy copper with a large lasting amber head. Aromas of grapefruit and orange, light pine and some carmel. Palate was medium bodied and lightly resiny. Flavours of grapefruit rind, mild orange, some piney notes and mellow carmel with a lingering bitter finish.

DalzAle (2029) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Bottle. Clear dark orange pour, plenty of carbonation and a malty hop aroma. Flavor is bitter orange, hops, tons of malt, sweet and syrupy sugar and finished with a dry bitter liquer aftertaste. I bought this because it was suggested to be better than bells 2 hearted. Do I think so? No. However it is a very well done beer, but just not what I personally look for in an IPA.

jtclockwork (15435) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Bottle thanks to a generous trader. Pours clear amber with tan head. Nose of floral hops and malts. Taste is tasty, a bit grainy. Some citrus with the hops and malt balance.

keokani (20) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Aroma: floral, citrus, banana, bubblegum. Appearance: amber, orange, hazy, frothy, white foam. Taste: medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Palate: full body, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: This is one of my favorite IPAs, because of the perfect balance of flavors and mouthfeel. The malt character keeps the hops from dominating the flavor. The generous 6.8% alcohol content reaches you fast.

trevor211 (1651) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Dark pour - deep amber with a beige head. A significant malt contingent in the aroma. Cereal grains, not brown sugar or molasses. Just a touch of caramel. Flavor brings the hops to the forefront, moving into bitter grapefruit and other citrus. Nice, clean finish, with a lingering aftertaste - all hops. Well done!

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Dark copper-orange. Small head. Rather light citrus and grass scent. Fairly bitter with a copper/blood undertone, made for nice dryness.

badgerben (4972) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Dark orange color with a small head. Aroma of orange and light floral notes. Moderately bitter taste. Some floral and orange. Light caramel malt. Simple but solid IPA.

Guerde (1295) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2010
(bottle) Pours a dark copper color with a medium cream colored head that retains well. When still, the beer smells bready (kind of rye-like actually) with a decent amount of caramel as well. But as you swirl this beer, the hops kick in and provide a nice hit of tropical fruits like pineapple and tangelo. Juicy and candy-like, which I prefer over the herbal and resinous hop aromas. Taste is on the sweet side, with plenty of caramel followed by a brief dash of the juicy hop character that quickly yields to a quite bitter grapefruit pith flavor that gets a little bug-spray like. Some bread is present between the sweet and juicy transition. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is appropriate. Overall, not a bad IPA by any means, but the exceedingly bitter finish was a bit much.
