From Apr 2008
I got this at LiquorMax in Ft Collins, Co.
This pours a clear very bright amber gold(2008) with a 2 finger head of foam. Very good head retention and some very nice lacing.
The smell is of floral hops with a big dose of grapefruit, some fruit, and some sweet malt hiding in the background.
The taste has the grapefruit right up front with some bready notes and some caramel malt sitting on the side and giving some balance and actually ends up dominating the finish. There's also quite a bit of fruitiness to this DIPA that adds both bitterness and sweetness to the overall flavour. Mighty nice this one. Pretty darned easy drinking as well. With this one, the taste is much better than the smell would indicate.
It has a medium to medium light mouthfeel and the carbonation is fairly lightly done. Another very nice, very tasty, very drinkable brew from Full Sail. Imagine that!

Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a cream colored off white head. The aroma is hop resin, pine, citrus, and rye. The flavor is pine, hop resin, pepper, and rye. The mouthfeel is medium, as well as, the drinkability. Shag (3045) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Orange color with white head. Aroma contains citrus and pine. The flavor is bitter with some pine and orange. This is very dry for an IPA but I like it. Overall nice!

Slightly hazy copper wth a lasting off white rocky cap. Big balanced aroma between sticky piney and floral and orange rind hops with a big pale malt and slight caramel maltiness. Big stern but balanced flavor that leans floral and citrusy but is malty and full and biscuity enough to back it up. A little standard but damn tasty, full and balanced. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2016

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange copper with creamy off white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is dank and tropical fruit. Medium mouth, juicy hop, dank, lingering resin finish, very good. Cybercat (6142) - Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2016
Pours clear coppery amber with a thick and rather persistent pale buff head. Aroma delivers a strong note of resiny and slightly woody hops, as well as orange and grapefruit notes. Bold flavor ramps up these tones and adds more wood, as well as notes of malt and pear. Finish has just a hint of spice, while body is firm and smooth yet fizzy and lively. Slip one down your throat - you will knot regret it.
