UPDATED: OCT 28, 2009 12 oz bottle from Princeton’s. Light golden color, thick foamy white head. Very nice lacing. Wonderful floral hoppy aroma. Sweet, citrus flavor with a nice hoppy bite and a slightly bitter finish. The "juicy hop presence" in the commercial description is a good way to put it. Excellent beer.
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and tropical fruit. Body is full and crisp. Citrusy hops dominate the flavor with bready malt and tropical fruit provide good balance. Finish is long and hoppy. Excellent brew. ads135 (4731) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 14, 2017
An okay IPA. Quite a bit of citrus, orange hoppiness. Pours gold and has a potent aroma. UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAY 17, 2017
Appearance: clear pale gold with one finger of creamy off-white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, biscuity malt, tropical fruit, mild resin, slight vegetal. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body tending slightly thin, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (3/5)
A bit on the old side, but I’m not convinced that’s the issue here - it’s coming across as a bit thin, and a bit sharp. Not one of my favourite offerings by this brewer, and certainly not as good as e.g. their Centennial. (13/20)

Yellow-orange pour. Looks thin with just a few bubbles. Nice sweet tropical fruit hop nose. Bit oxidised, with beeswax and honey notes. Taste is bitter, clean slightly resinous. Linger is dry and greenish bitter.

Medium full body. Slightly sweet hops have dropped lots of honeydew and grapefruit. Not bad but not special. BeerdedDave (1785) - Beckley, USA - MAR 26, 2017

Bottle at home (bottled on 10/03/16). Pours light hazy golden amber with a white head. Aroma of piny resiny floral hops, citrus and sweet malts. Taste is over moderate bitter, light sweet, long resiny bitter aftertaste. Nice. Would love to try this fresh. swesson (462) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2017
From a bottle. Pours a dark gold and makes a frothy white head. Aroma is of fresh resins piney hops and a strong citrus character. Tastes of fresh, fresh, cut hops. The wet hopping really works on this ale.
