Copper pour with frothy white head. Sweet aroma with citrus malt. Tastes of honey and grapefruit with nice piney bitter finish. Very good carbonation and viscous mouthfeel.

Bomber. Orange color with a frothy off-white head. Floral, citrus and pine hop aroma. There was a delicate honeyed sweetness in the malts, infused with a sticky, mostly citrus hop profile. Tame bitterness on the finish. Full bodied with fine carbonation. I would have preferred a bit more of a hop bite in this one, but pretty decent nonetheless.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2008
pours a clean golden honey colour with a small white head. aroma i s a bitter grapefruit hop, some fresh fruits and a decent malt aroma.wow the flavour is very sweet and slightly syrupy, some bitter hops in the finish that aare pretty good but over all just a little to thick and sweet,

sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2008
elysian immortal - bottle, alone sadly. copper ore hue, clear with tiny particulate matter homogenously interspersed. small, big bubbled head. smells of dishwater hops, some almond/metal in there too. a big sip is pretty drinkable, a lot of malt rounding this guy out, probably overpowering the hops a little. slightly bitter back end, mostly cloying sweetness around the rest. mouthfeel is like the aroma, pretty soapy and slick. nothing special

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2008
On tap at the Blind Tiger. Light orange in color with a small lasting off white head. Aroma: some floral and earthy hops, with a touch of citrus and pale malts. The hop aroma was on the subdued side compared to some of their other pale ales. Taste is moderately hoppy with floral, and a touch of citrus. Medium body, very drinkable. Bitterness was light to moderate in the finish in comparison to other beers of the style.

SDalkoholic (2371) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 20, 2008
On cask @ San Diego real ale festival: This poured as a pure golden color with a decent serving of head and had a nose of fresh hop that stood out compared to the rest. The flavor was dowsed in green wet sticky freshly picked hops and was almost like a harvest ale. A definite repeat, but the problem is where to find this? I would settle for a bottle or tap.

Another solid IPA during the Seattle trip. Not as intense as expected, but very good. The wife was less impressed.

Dogbrick (12233) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Sample at the Pike Street location. The beer is a clear orange color with a medium thin white head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Citrusy and hoppy aroma with light malt in the background. Medium-bodied and moderately hoppy with flavors of citrus and pine along with some malt. The finish is somewhat hoppy with a lingering bitterness left over. Above average all around.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - MAY 17, 2008
A hug of honeyed citrus immerses from the healthy white foam. Earthy hop that sticks to the nostrils and bready maltiness follows. Orange cream checked by rind bitterness in the form of bittering hops refreshes the palate and lingers as it coats the mouth for another dose. Full body insures that a sipper could turn into a workhorse. The show takes on seriousness in the mid-palate and finishes on the sides of the tongue. Nicely done.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Sweet honey-resin nose, some floral notes. Slightly hazy orange/amber, super thick and frothy head that lasted and left nice lacing. Nutty toast sweetness, bitterness hits right away, good balance. Medium body, good mouth feel, and a long finish. All around solid IPA.
