12oz bottle from AJs fine foods. Pours light copper in colour, small caramel coloured head. Nice balanced sweet caramel malt and resins hops. Pretty good. jjgmd (2220) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Pours a hazy golden orange with a nice frothy head. Nose is all citrus with predominate grapefruit and orange, with some sweetness. Taste is full of hops and quite bitter, with a deep citrus flavor. Finish is dry, long and bitter.
This is one of the few IPAs where the bitterness is not tampered out !

Pours an amber orange with a dissipating beige head and sweet aroma of grapefruit and citrus. Taste is bittersweet, of citrus, grapefruit, hops, and pine with a bitter, dry finish. Great IPA with a lot of bitter hop flavor. Tinco (621) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2012
On tap. Don’t remember much of the tasting notes in my head but it was a very solid IPA for sure. Nice fruity hop character and a well crafted brew! johnbuck100 (306) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2012
A very nice B+ IPA. Citrus, west coast hops. Color is OK and I would be very happy to have this at a party or a bar. Didn’t blow me away, but extremely respectable. If I was on a desert Island for 5 years I would be very happy with 500 cases of this beer

12 oz. bottle. Crystal clear gold, thin layer of white head. Nose is kind of like cat pee. Taste is a juicy, wet hop with big, fruity grapefruit and a burst of citrus. Active carbonation, medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Bitterness lingers just slightly. Taste is really nice. The cat pee nose is not my thing but the flavor is really exceptional. It drinks like a 5 or 6 % beer, not one over 7.5%. Really well done! slsenior (62) - - SEP 6, 2012
Solid IPA, though not a contender for the top spot. It’s well balanced and complex, though not as smooth of a finish as, say, Dogfish Head. bernatbeer (420) - barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 5, 2012
En botella.dorada con aromas a resina y lúpulo oxidado.Lastima que hoy la pruebe así! En su dia la probe excelente.se nota mucho de haberla probada en el oeste o en el este!

Golden with frothy white head...great lacing. Citrus, mild grapefruit, sweet malt notes, and mild floral aroma. Full bodied, flavor like aroma, mild syrupy notes, finishing hops add to lasting bittering finish and aroma notes. Decent balance with a medium bitter finish...dry but lingers.

Draught at the Bierkraft, Brooklyn, New York.
Clear pale golden colour with small white head.
Fresh hoppy sweetness with mild bitterness in aroma.
Exotic fruity sweet hops in flavour. Balanced. Nice grapefruity resiny bitterness. Very tasty. This is what American IPA should be.
