Thanks to Juancho. Drank it in Panajechel, Guatemala. Pours an orange color with a white head. Light bodied, aromas of pine and citrus, well balanced, nice long finish. keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Excellent light and smooth but hoppy IPA. Looks beautiful and tastes delicious. doboy (424) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Great hop aroma hit my nose with this first beer of an 11 beer sample session with Steve, CelticBrew and the infamous DrBayern, who I am sure ahs waited to be review #10!!!! It poured slightly cloudy with a nice light lacy head. The first taste gave a nice bite of hops, and the finish was equally as refreshing! An Olympic Gold Medal Winner at MY games!! And NOW, DrBayern may impart his words of wisdom!!!!! KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JUL 2, 2010

Aromas I get bubblegum, peaches, sugar and apricot and (unusually) the new-furniature smell. But I like it. The aromas remind me a lot of cutting into fresh fruit, like a rock melon. SO awesome.
Flavours - mild bitterness mixes with a perfect sweet, caramel malt. Turns into juicy fruit with banana, pineapple, passionfruit.
Relatively full bodied. I like this a lot.

It’s all about the free range coastal water. Cloudy golden pour with a thick cream white head. Floral hoppy nose. Really lacks a distinct palate, but the lingering bitterness is nice. Really balanced hops: citrus, sweetness and crisp bitterness. Squizzle (304) - Ashland, Oregon, USA - NOV 7, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2017 The story behind this beer is that I had a house sitter that completely cleaned me out of every drop of alcohol in my house including my last beer in the fridge. However, I had stashed this bomber under the sink. This beer was amazing and a life saver. I never used those housesitters again. Juancho (239) - Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2008
On Tap @ Rogue in Portland. Hazy copper, with a thick orange tinged head. Wonderful hoppy citrus aroma, like a good whiff of fresh grapefruit. Hazy and thick. One of Rogue’s very best. Nice sweetness balanced deftly by copious hops. This one is a keeper. Anyone know ABV ?? sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - FEB 14, 2013
pour orange with a red tint and a big fluffy head. I did not enjoy this beer at all, i felt it was like drinking bitter orange peelings. It was sweet with a strong citrus peel taste, there was some pine and lighr spicyness to it and it finished bitter. garth_86 (225) - EDMONTON, Alberta, CANADA - APR 20, 2013
Pours a cloudy golden with nice carbonation. Taste is a nice hops straw taste. Aroma is hops and malt.
