Bottle, BevMo La Jolla. Pours clear copper with a short white head. Floral hop aroma, without the piney, resiny goodness. Dank caramel as well. Bitter, fuggels-like bite. Very metallic, tea-leaf like bitterness. Even the malt tastes acidic. No citrus, resin flavors. Almost like an English IPA gone nuclear. Not what I expected or wanted from an IIPA. marcus (10890) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 23, 2008
This orange ale poured with a modest off-white head and a sweet malty aroma. The flavor is caramel malt with a grassy bitter hop finish. The overall flavor is unusual, but not entirely pleasing. JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - AUG 20, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2010 22 oz bottle - re-rate - Pours an Amber/yellow color, slightly cloudy, small white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is fairly sweet, with soapy, sort of metallicy hops, apples, pears, raisens, and light caramel. Flavor has metallic hops, sweet caramel, kind of one dimentional. Not terrible but very good either. TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2006
Pours a very pale amber with thin off white head. Nose is faint and slightly of rubbing alcohol, with some hoppiness. Flavor is blunt and bitter in an aspirin kind of way. Honestly I expected much better. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Draft at the Parkway’s Day of IPAs. Bready/yeasty nose. Hazy and still. Almost peachy palate. Empty finish. Gets almost vinous as it warms. Weird beer, not a success, and really surprising--I thoroughly expected to enjoy this beer.

Poured a slightly cloudy tangerine color with a small white head. Aroma was of very light hops, maltiness, and floral. Flavor was sweet, bitter, and floral. Not a very exciting IIPA and one i would probably buy again. Nik925 (800) - USA - FEB 26, 2009
Really disappointed with this one. Chewy assault of bitterness that coats your mouth and sticks. There are some great flavors in there, but there is something odd about the bitterness and the viscosity. Leaves a horrible aftertaste. This is my 6th Full sail, and the 5 that is sub 3.0. I won’t be sending any more money their way.
