Decent beer, not sure its the 99 it has. Fresh in a Growler, going to revisit it in a little bit to decide again. Overall though its freaking good. micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Pours an honey amber color with burnished orange highlites. Held up to bright light light shows off it’s clarity and brilliancy.
A tall off white head lingers for quite a while leaving nice lacing around the glass.
It’s exceptionally well carbonated.
Aroma is of an abundance of sweet malts, but the sutle hops are the big draw here with plenty of hop aromas of grapefruit and floral.
The hops are bright and fresh.
A great tasting beer here with plenty of hop flavor and light on the hop bitterness. You can pick out grapefruit and fruity/floral notes plus faint spicy hops. Malts are light with a hint of toasted malts. Finishing up, is a soft warming alcohol presence.
This medium body ale is a great example of an IPA.
Bright and flavorful easy drinking without being overly bitter.
Definitly well worth the effort of finding.

On draught at some NYC pub that we stopped in because we had to pee. jredmond (8285) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Pours a deep golden color with a small well retained head.
The aroma is resiny and has some nice melon and orange rind fruitiness.
The flavor is lots of fresh hops, a little grapey, a little grape-fruity, a good bit of citrus and melon. Just a ton of those fruit forward hops. The beer is pretty high in bitterness which is always nice alongside those fruity hops.
Draft at The Long Room. Wow, I’ve had this so many times and I’ve. Eer rated it? Pours a copper body with nice white lacing. Aroma is fresh pine, bitter citrus and light soap. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing with notes of bitter grapefruit, pine and some other dry citrus flavors.

Grass citrus rind a little raisin caramel. Exquisite. Pretty much perfection. Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Taste is orange peel, pine, hay and hops. Overall smooth and very drinkable. StinkBall (157) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2012
This is one great IPA. The hops are very well balanced with a nice citrus kick. Great aroma. Get this IPA if you can, you won’t be disappointed!! PatIrish (183) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2012
Incredibly well-balanced IPA. Cudos to Zio Aldo for getting this one in my hands. Lovely orange to amber hue with a nice head. Pine, resin, grapefruit all there. Bitter and lingering finish. Awesome. jackfrost9p (338) - California, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Fantastic IPA. Wonderful bitter, hop flavors with pine and fruit characters as well. A measuring stick for all IPAs.
