Standard light amber - very clear with no hint of haze at all. Poured a large off off-white / tan, long lasting creamy head with good lacing. The aroma is of peppermint....no, more of a mint - a sharp fresh mint with a definete herbal touch. some candied grapefruit and thick malt. The taste is very herbal and needs more hop flavour (where’s the grapefruit?). Large mint. Some bready malts. Nice carbonation, soft and smooth. Just above medium bodied, long lasting bitterness. This is not a fair comparrision but I put this head to head against Stone Ruination and this stuff is no where near Stone...or no where near most other AIPA’s I’ve had.
Poured yellow with fluffy white head. Aroma of pine. Good pine flavor with a nice balance of malt and some citrus in the finish. Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
This beer poured a dark honey brown with a hint of red thrown in; just a tiny skiff of head was produced and that disappeared very quickly. The aroma was all hops, grape fruity hops to be more specific, good hop smell strong but not overpowering. Just like the aroma the taste is all grape fruit hops but its not to bitter until it has left your mouth then there’s an intense bitterness left in your mouth. I like this IPA a lot more then most I would be able to drink more then a couple in an evening saxo (19357) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2009
Bottle. 5.6% ABV. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are hops, grass, flowers and malt. Nice bitter finish. MoritzF (10067) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2009 (35.5cl bottle) Almost clear, amber colour with a short and slightly off-white foamy head. Slightly sweet malty and sourish fruity nose with a touch of dust and lemon-fruity hops. Moderately bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a crispy mf. Soft malty base with light notes of licorice and a good dash of (grape-)fruity hops. Dry and moderately bitter and fruity finish. Surely a drinkable brew, but also almost a bit disappointing by FD standards (19.II.08).

355 ml bottle. Clear, golden orange body with a dense off-white head. Sweet and heavy hoppy/citrus + hay aroma. Flavor has a sharp, prompt bitterness, giving a dry feeling even realizing this is a quite sweet beer. Balanced but not much malt flavor here. jkwalking05 (4743) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Gold in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of caramel and hops. Flavor is of citrus, hops and caramel. Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2011 12oz bottle from 2007. pours an off-white head with a clover honey color body. Smells of honey, pine and apricot. Tastes of pineapple, apricot, and honey. Nice bitter finish. All-around good IPA.
01/05/11 As a note, just drank one from the same brood and it was a malt bomb with a dog food finish...not very pleasing at all. Actually, just tried another quaff, and it wanted to come back on up on me the old musty malt being as in my face as it is. It’s going down the drain. Just wanted to let that be known, not going to change my original rating tho. This bottle was marked with 500 7FX. topherh (1929) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2009
