hazy orange pour from the bottle. Packed with caramel malts, fruity hops. grapefruit, lemon and citrus. Dry breadiness, sweet caramel. bright tingly carbonation. Finishes with the light touch of astringency. Very well balanced and tasty! PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Bottle: Pours a slightly hazy orane with a nice dense off white head that laces well. Enormous herbal bouquet- oily hop resins, sticky grapefruit and chamomile like herbalness. Creamy body with a soft carbonation. Quite herbal and spicy. Clean with a big hop presence. Hempy, piny, spicy, minty, huge herbal character, almost tea-like. A great IPA. cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Big fresh hoppy nose: citrus, apricot, dank. Flavor goes citrus, apricot, a touch of malt, ctirus zest and finishes on a solid bitter note. jdskinns (220) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a white frothy head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, and with a little citrus. Taste follows the aroma pretty much exactly. Dry and bitter finish. A nice warming feeling once it hits the stomach. Sticky, smooth and very good. JoeinDahlem (1520) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2010
Bright and clear golden-orange beer with big tropical fruit-hop nose (Centennial?). Fairly sweet and juicy with a moderate bitterness that is restrained enough to preserve drinkability. Finishes a bit dry, thankfully. Great stuff.
KyotoLefty (10254) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 2, 2010
Bottled. Nice malty aroma with earthy hops and a bit of grass. Great balance. Nice caramel, earthy, grassy hops, malt forward with apricots and peaches. Smooth and round, very drinkable. Not surprising, but tasty and well done.
Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Pours a clear copper orange with very little head. What is there is a frothy white that quickly dissipates. Aroma is a lot of woodsy notes. Aroma is fresh earth, bark and spruce and undertone of vanilla and caramel. Flavor is spruce and a mix of a caramel bread flavor on the tongue. Body is light with active carbonation with a hit of creaminess to it. WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear pale orange color with minimal carbonation and a thin head. Flavor is pale malts, slightly toasted and fruity. Slight notes of chalk and minerals in the body. Hops are soft and floral. Smooth and easy drinking. A pretty solid beer, the 7.5 abv is a surprise. dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 30, 2010
(12oz bottle). Pours clear copper color with nice 1 finger head. Nice lacing. Aroma of some hop funk, florals and citrus. Taste is bitter with a slight sourness/sweetness. Medium bodied with oily/thin texture. Finish is bitter and long. Its a well-crafted beer although a bit thin. foosnbrews (145) - Parker, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Beer poors golden with a constant white head throughout the beer. Aroma is citrus dominated with a distinct malty bready characteristic. Flavor is medium sweet and medium high bitterness with hints of alchol coming through. Mouthfeel is nice, medium/low stickyness and a good fizz and bitterness that lingers. Overall this is an excellent go-to IPA. Wish this was available in CO
