On tap at the brewery, March 2008: Pours a hazy copper orange with a clingy, well-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet pale malts and fresh resiny grapefruity hops. Body starts fairly full and sweet with some toasted caramel malt and decent bittering and flavor hoppy presence. Finishes crisp and bittersweet. A pretty good IPA. hopscotch (11240) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Draft... Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Medium-bodied and chewy with ticklish carbonation. Both the flavor and the aroma are malty offerings of caramel, toffee, brown sugar and biscuit with a passable note of citrus fruit. Medium to heavy sweetness; moderate grapefruit and pine needle bitterness. Sweet, roasty, lightly bitter finish. Think Red Head Red Ale with more hops. jcwattsrugger (12524) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2008
on tap-pours a dissipating off white head and amber color. Aroma is mild citrus/pine, medium malt. Taste is citrus/pine-bitter hops first, then balanced by medium malt-caramel. Medium body. OK carbonation. Improves when moves to cellar temperature. Dry finish.

Pint on tap at brewery that pours a hazy copper with orange edges and thin white head. Mild aroma with some malt sweetness mixed with a punch of grapefruit hops. The taste is certainly an IPA. A mild malt sweetness starts things out for a moment until a fresh bitter grapefruit hoppiness kicks in. Nice hop experience with the tingling bitterness mixing with an upwelling of mild roasted malt sweetness.

Growler provided by hopdog. Pours golden/amber color with smallish white head. Citrus and grassy/earthy notes dominate the aroma. Flavor is relatively subdued, with some citrus, pine and a little malt. Not bad. JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Growler from Quake - thanks! Nice amber color with a fairly strong grassy-citrus aroma. Flavor is a bit off with the hops and sweetness not mixing all that well. Drinkable, but not sure its anything above average. OK to try. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2007

Thanks to hopdog for sharing this growler. Pours a lightly hazy amber with golden notes and a smaller off white creamy head. Aroma of some mixed citrus and pine, caramel and a little skunky. Flavor of some light pine and grapefruit, caramel and cereal grains. JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2007
On tap, courtesy Degarth. Light copper color with a white soapy head. Very mild slightly astringent hop aroma, little/no malt presence. Low carbonation. Pretty subdued flavor - there pale out there way hoppier than this. Soapy and thin.
