Bright orange, decent head, good lacing on the glass. The smell is nondescript or my olfactory senses fail me, its like I can tell there are hops but no defining hop aroma, no pine, no citrus, no grass, nope. Still, not bad just something I’m not going to waste my time sniffing at. The taste is clean with a hint of citrus, floral qualities and plenty of bitterness in the finish. Not a bad beer at all, easy to drink but I prefer true West Coast IPA’s.

Bottle... Poured amber with a white head, nice lacing. Strong hops on the nose with a pine and citrus sweetness as well. Crisp, foamy, well carbonated palate. Well balanced and a nice hop bitterness with a wood-like malt character. Really straight forward but well made. hellbilly (3248) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - OCT 12, 2009
8/13/2009 on tap at papago.
bronze-y amber pour with a slight haze. it’s capped by a soft foamy light tan head and clingy spots of lace.
sweet malty nose yet dry, spicy and almost husky... along with caramel, earthiness, a touch of pine and some grapefruit.
initial blast of toffee-like malty sweetness is helped out by dry and bitter hoppy goodness... spicy, earthiness, citrus and just a touch of sweet pine.
medium bodied, prickly and crisp. 7/4/7/3/15/3.6 sebletitje (10207) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2009
Received as an extra BA trade.
Pours orange, thick off-white head.
Aroma is hoppy, nice fresh hop nose, citrus/grapefruit, some pine, just beautiful aroma.
Flavor, not a hop bomb, but plenty to be noticed, nice grapefruit palate, pine, with thin malty presence. Easy to drink, medium bitterness with a nice cirsp malty finish. Just love the whole fresh hop aspect. Ungstrup (38138) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2009

Pours a reddish orange into the glass with a white head. Aroma is citrus and pine with a bit of malt sweetness. Flavor is fruity, a lot of apricot flavor, probably from the combination of the hops and honey malts. Really enjoyable. By far the best beer I’ve had from Full Sail! gkost (1069) - Alaska, USA - SEP 11, 2009
