Light golden with a white head. Very nice citrusy and fruity aroma. Caramelly body but rather dry and with a great bitterness that is just off-balance.

(Bottle 5/4-2011) Head fade quickly but still got a lot of CO2. Aroma has faded a bit, 2 weeks before BB date.

Yves (2938) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2011
Clear amber coloured beer with small white head and almost no carbonation. Rather strong hoppy aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is very bitter with a sweet dry touch. Too bitter.

chibuck (3511) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2011
12oz bottle poured into my Narke tulip...A dark but clear copper, lots of light tope head, good retention and lacing...At first the aroma is really nice and sweet but then the alcohol comes through, too strong so it starts to turn me off...The taste takes the aroma to a new level, all piney alcohol and incredibly strong, I almost gagged my first sip. This is beyond a beer for hop heads, this just needs to go away. Its as if they almost poured grain alcohol in the beer, how is this 7.1%. Yuck!

AshtonMcCobb (6068) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 29, 2011
355ml bottle. Pours a lovely amber colour with a hint of gold. There is quite a lot of carbonation and a nice head. The nose has pine and grapefruit pith. The taste is initially of grapefruit and as it finishes, there is more grapefruit pith. Somewhere in the middle there is ginger cake. The palate has decent structure and it is creamy, but for me the finish is far too astringent. Good beer but I only want one (or two at most). OK make it three.

EdKing (2477) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours amber. Aroma is full citrous, mainly grapefruit. Taste is great pow of grapefruit hops but which is very nicely in balance with a bit of caramel malt. Smooth drinking. This is one of my favourite American IPAs. Perfectly in balance.

Snake Dog pours a nice amber with a frothy head. There is a sweet citrusy aroma. Its like fresh grapefruits. The hops bite back in this one, its downright bitter. But it goes down nicely and finishes clean leaving you thirsting for more! I absolutely love this IPA.
