I dont like IPAs so this probably wont be a good rating
Pours with a clear amber hue, with no head
Aroma is hoppy and weird
Flavor is bitter all the way through and hoppy as hell!
Medium mouthfeel with light carbonation. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 18, 2009
2009 bottle. pours with a bone colored head over a clear copper or bronze body. Aroma is dank, fruity, and orange hops with a slightly herbal and caramel back note. Taste is cleanly hop bitterness with light esters, caramel and herbal/pine C-hop notes.. Medium carbonation with a dryish mouthfeel. harbuck76 (134) - El Cajon, California, USA - JUN 14, 2009

Balance is something this beer is lacking. There is too much bitter, not enough malt. It feels like it was just thrown together. It’s not a bad beer, but I had higher expectations. SudsMcDuff (8462) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2009

Fresh hop aroma. Grapefruit, floral hops. Orange body with an average white head. The bitterness is high on this, and makes it a bit harsh on the palate. Needs some more malt backing to balance it out. Dry finish. Nothing special here, but somewhat interesting in its uniqueness. tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Poured into a tulip
Pours a golden orange. 3 fingers of white head.
Nose is weak, Little bit of floral hops and vegetables.
Taste is bitter, no real big malt body as the description indicates. Slight breadiness, little bit of biscuit, and no real hop flavors, just bitterness. Dmalone102 (223) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2009
This is the ’09 version.
Aroma- Body Odor? Could be a mix of DMS and an earthy hop aroma.
Appearance- Decent clarity, orange in color. Off-white, creamy head.
Flavor- Wow, it even tastes a little like B.O. up front... off-putting at best. Crazy hop bitterness. Not a lot of sweetness, some tartness, and lots of bitterness. The hops come across as hot and spicy to me. There’s not very much malt to balance this hop bomb.
Palate- Hot! mostly from hop bitterness, but the alcohol is hot also. Pretty dry.
Overall Impression- I’m pretty disapointed. The hop bitterness is humongous and overwhelming. There isn’t a lot of body and no malt flavor to speak of. I’m also not sure why it smells and tastes a little like Body odor. alagnak (468) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Really orange in the glass - virtually no head. First several tastes were pleasant and citrusy, decent balance of hops and bitter. As it warmed, it became overly bitter and syrupy (brother in law had a sip and likened it to chewing on freshly cut pine boards - no idea if he’s actually done that, but he’s spent enough time sawing pine that i wouldn’t put it past him).

On tap at the Downtown "Brew Pub" poured into Pint glass.
Pours a bright orange with a finger of white head that seems sticky. Aroma is faint but primarily of sweet malts, bitter hops, and maybe some orange peel? Flavor is kind of watery upfront and lingers with a citrus hoppiness that turns bitter rather quickly. Very interesting not saying that I enjoy it all that much. Its medium bodied and very sticky. Its a decent beer but there are definitely better options from Full Sail. I did enjoy the on-tap tasting better than out of the bottle.
