lefossoyeur (611) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2009
Hazy straw blonde with a fading white head. Light nose of lemon zest, Its all hops up front on the palate, citrussy, full bodied with the alcohol well hidden, its a tuly balanced beer. Long lasting finale on the bitter side. Very refreshing IIPA. Loved it!

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Bottle from nearbeer. Thanks! Poured a clear light orange color. The head was tall and white with good retention and lacing. Pleasant aroma that included the likes of pine, citrus liqueur, and flower blossom. There was also some caramel. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with moderate hop bitterness. I tasted distinct orange marmalade, caramel, and pine. A hint of sweet orange liqueur emerged at the end. Delicious.

Bottled, shared by Menno. Slight hazy orange golden color, short head. Aroma of good fresh hop, some grapefruit and pine. Decent bitter taste, firm malty body. Good stuff.

Bottle @ Big City, Allston, MA. Cloudy orange body. Strong hop flavor is extremely bitter and tough to put down. Not a fan at all.

thedm (6045) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2009
This draft brew from a bottle shop poured a head of finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a hazy dark orange colored body. The strong aroma was hoppy. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of very strong sharp bitter hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Golden yellow body with faint head. Hoppy nose. Solid taste of hops and plenty of pine. Grapefruit well-represented too. A nice IPA. Really enjoying it just now.

skortila (5662) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2009
Bottled. Tnx Menno. Aroma has citric hops, some pine. Bit hazy, golden coloured beer with a white head. The taste is bitter, with pine and grapefruit, some malty fruityness as well. Well bodied beer, some carbonation.

Canals purchase. WOW what a gem. Grassy aroma, a hop explosion of the nose. A very bitter sweet blend. Citric basically everything I like in an IPA.
