Very good look, lots of lace, copper color. Gray amount of head. Lots of citrus, tropical fruits and some pine. Flavor is much of the same with a solid malt backbone providing the sweetness to balance the hops. Michel it’s a medium, with soft carbonation that gives the beer a nice feel. Very drinkable, a solid offering from elysian. stantheman (1052) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Shared bottle at eTap on Howe St in Vancouver. This is very highly tilted toward hops. Citrus hop flavors predominate, but there’s a malted aftertaste as well. Maybe the best hoppy IPA I’ve ever had!

Fresh sample on tap at Malone’s in Vancouver. A turgid and murky brew of a brownish orange cast. Big grapefruit flavour here, though no one’d ever mistake this for a grapefruit cooler. All beer here, friends. Still a great one!
From a bomber. Beautiful bright orange pour with a thick rocky white head. The aroma is gorgeous. Bright tropical fruit, grapefruit and some juicy fruit aroma over a lovely rich pale malt base. A touch of spice that rounds out the sweeter fruity notes on the back. Bright and zesty with a distinct whiff of peach as well. Awesome stuff. onceblind (9700) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Clear copperish amber with a thick foamy off-cream head. Sweet and sticky nose of grapefruit rind and oranges, with passion fruit and a touch of pine resin and caramel, with a slight biscuitiness. Flavor is citric and bitter with a bunch of orange rind, some slight grapefruitiness, floral bitterness, some sweet mango/tropical undertones, and a sweet caramalty body that still lets the hop bitterness shine through very well.

22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to mostly clear orange color. The aroma has citrus / floral notes to it. The taste has a light body with a nice bitter finish. Overall a good IPA.

Murky orange pour. Thin, off white head with very little carbonation. Hoppy taste on the front and back in. Good example of the style. AAEA (266) - California, USA - JUN 28, 2015
22FL OZ ($4.99 Bottle) this was a very very good IPA. I have only had a few IPAs i can say are better. This is the most well rounded I’ve had in recent history. Find it, drink it, love it, you won’t regret it. robforbes (2245) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2012
pours a cloudy amber-orange with a medium size egg shell head, and verry good lacing.
smell is floral, citrus, hops, some caramel, and a touch of roasted malt.
taste is smooth and creamy, refreshing, caramel, hops, citrus and a hint of other fruits, a little pine in the back.
ends creamy, and nicely bitter. Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Draft. Pours gold with a sticky white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, even some coconut (is that a fruit or nut? Or are all nuts actually fruit anyways?) Taste has more of the pine resin and orange rind bitterness than I expected from the nose. A really awesome beer. Travlr (24880) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle. Murky amber brown color, thin white head, delicate lacing. Beautiful aroma of intense pineapple and tropical fruit. Taste is tangy orange, lemon, juicyfruit gum. Delicious.
