pretty heavy on the citrus and bitterness....mostly in a good way. This was a solid IPA at a decent price.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Bottle thanks to 5000 sampled on 8/24/08: Transparent copper orange with a well-lacing stringy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty caramel malt and citrusy grapefruity hops. Body starts with decent fullness and crisp caramely malt along with some grassy earthy bittering hops before a drier grainy finish. An ok IPA, but could use a little more sweetness and assertive hoppy flavor.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle:   Fiery golden, vibrant and clear, lively carbonation, rocky off-white head, decent lacing.   Citrus rind, pine, and hops on the nose.   Pale citrus rind and soft malts on the tongue.   Tastes like a toned down Wreck The Halls.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish.   Pale citrus rind lingers.   Decent little IPA.   Wished it were a bit floral to balance out the rind, but good regardless.

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - DEC 11, 2009
Pours beautiful orange to copper color with very think and bready head. Nose offers delightful citrus - sharp grapefruit juice, apricot, and a pleasant wet lawn grassy component. Palate is very dry with the hop presence, herbal, and mouth puckering on the finish. Aftertaste is spicy and chalky like an Altoid breath mint. Not a lot of balance here.

3.6
Strykzone (7299) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Thanks to Hayduke for this. Cloudy and kind of dirty orange in color. A thin blotchy head. An aroma of sweet citrus fruit, malt and grain. Flavor is also sweet and soft fruit, gentle spice notes of pepper and cinnamon, and caramel that nicely balances the hops. Quite bitter and also somewhat sour. A nice smooth and easy to drink IPA. The hops didn’t overpower with grapefruit which left some grateful tastebuds.

3.9
Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Pours amber with a stubborn white head. Smells of citrus, resiny, caramel. Tastes sweet and caramelly with a full compliment of citrussy hoppy flavors.

3.3
Ungstrup (37216) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009
An amber beer with a thin lazing beige head. The aroma is plainly sweet malty. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and hops, leading to a dry bitter finish.

2.9
robinvboyer (4573) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2009
citrucy hops, with some odd odor, smells like sulfur. Flavor is light, and fruity. lots of nice hops, and this is really quite bitter. There is some more sulfur in the finish, might be an off bottle.
