0.355 l bottle.
My first IPA-style beer ever, so I cannot compair it to other similar brews.
This has a copper colour with a creamy, fine pored head, sparkling’s kinda average.
Fruity (citrus, apricot) and hoppy smell. The start is light sharp and sweet, the taste is fruity-flavoured and sweet, too.
The aroma is mainly of citrus/floral hops with notes of herbals, the finish is bitter, dry and some alcohol’s warming up pleasantly.
Body’s medium, texture’s kinda slick.
For me a bit too much of the sweetness, but aside from this an interesting and nice stuff. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2010

F: Heavy malt attack - what you should expect from an american IPA tjohooo! Great bitterness and medium swetness. A bit smokiness (wife again) - a great beverage, thx! Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2010

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and evenly of structure. The beer also contained no carbonic acid in the glass.
The beer has a thick amber color and a light acid taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a very citrus touch. This beer smells citrusly.
CentennialMan (4) - West Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2010 does not count
Looks nice sitting in the glass. Clear amber color, creamy head, nice lacing. Aroma is nothing to write ratebeer (home) about. The initial flavor has a strange malty sweetness, but the finish has a nice bitter hop flavor. The bottle doesn’t list the bottling date, so age may have affected this beer. Not a standout IPA ehhdayton (1188) - USA - JAN 11, 2010
Pours amberish golden with an off white head. Slight citrus aroma is evident. Flavor has a touch of grapefruit. Hop bitterness is there but subdued for an IPA. Snojerk321 (2984) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 9, 2010
12oz bottle from BevMo. Poured clear copper with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hoppy & malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium smooth bitter finish of moderate duration. A solid drinkable beer. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2010
12oz bottle. Golden pour. Aroma of citrus hops. Bitter hops flavor. Bite into a grapefruit rind. Light bodied, malt backbone. Missing balance.
