Sampled on 8/20/2010. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, sweet, orange and citrusy. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity, caramel and sweet, lot of orange and apricot flavors. Hops are citrusy and orange, a touch floral and earthy as well. A medium bitter IPA. Nice carbonation. The hop bitterness tends to linger throughout this beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Pours clear orange with a large white head. Aroma is orange peels and grass. Flavor is bitter and grassy hops. Some orange and a hint of caramel. Finish is a long lingering bitterness. Slightly thin, and muddled by the over the top bitterness. gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Bomber. Pours amber-orange with quickly disappearing head. Sugary aroma. Slightly bitter citrus taste with a lot of caramel. Refreshing for summer though. DYCSoccer17 (3691) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 19, 2010
22 ounce bottle from the Davis Food Co-op. Has the same husky, grainy Full Sail house character that I have become very bored with. Some spicy, grassy hop aromas come through...perhaps some Nelson Sauvin? Smells reminiscent of Anchor Humming, and that is not good. Just sorta swampy. Modestly hazy copper body (perhaps chill haze) with a good whitish head and nice lacing present. Starts sweet before this becomes toasting and cloyingly sweet, milky, and generally repulsive in the middle. Finishes with some spicy, grassy hops. Some floral notes are also in there. This is just entirely fucked up and reminiscent of vomit. What ever happened to Full Sail? CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle: Pours a transparent amber bronze with a stringy-lacing froth of khaki head. Has a sweet lightly toasted caramel and pale malty nose with some fresh resiny grapefruity hoppy notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet light doughy malty flavor with a fresh piny hoppy balance before a clean bittersweet finish. A fresh and very drinkable IPA.

Rich orange pour, white head. Thanks to walter for this one. AKA Dionysus. Tart oranges, citrus peel, resin, honey, syrup. Flavor is bitter and hoppy followed by a nice honey malt and fruity note. Pretty good brew! SSSteve (4006) - - AUG 15, 2010
22oz bottle. clear orange under a small white head. peach, mandarin orange and apricot scents. a light bodied beer light to moderate carbonation. bitter and dry with only a light touch of the malt in flavor. apricot flavor comes to mind.

Burnt orange, a little dark, minimal head. Aroma is earth and floral, flavor is pretty malty with bitterness and some earth and floral hop flavors. Finish is sweet. Reid (2527) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2010
22 Oz bottle from Roth’s Vista Market,Salem OR
Nice looking IPA here deep slightly hazy orange body and a nice thick ,bubbly off white head.Aroma is hoppy but not as much as expected, mainlly grassy, fruity in aspect..some breadieness in the back.
Very hoppy flavour to it, but like the label states..very bright and fruity..really gives a "zing" to the exierience.
OK on the palate, not astonishing but to style..nice fruity bitter after taste
Overall a pretty simple beer actually. Not Full Sails best IPA but acceptable.
