Pours dark golden with a nice beige head and a floral fruit aroma. There is a substantial caramel malt base that starts sweet and is quickly overcome with dry hop bitterness. It works pretty well. bb (9697) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle. Amber beer witha cream colored head. Grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit, pine, and light earthy flavor. Medium bodied. Nice bitterness. Pine and grapefruit lingers with light tropical fruit and light earth. douglas88 (9569) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 16, 2010
22 ounce bottle from the Utah State Store. Pours a clear golden a medium white head. The aroma is bitter piny hops. The flavor is mostly a bitter hop presence, biscuit, a medium mouthfeel. Decent. 3fourths (9357) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2010
medium light burnt orange color, medium to dark tan head. first guess is noble or noble-like hops, which has to be the willamette (earthy, mineralic, dried grass), and along with what seems like a small amount of cara-pils or marris otter it has a somewhat chalky, soil-like dried vegetable smell and flavor (the zues hops I guess add the high acid/low flavor bitterness, which seems a bit transparent - I prefer high acid columbus-like hop character to be combined with more fruit/citrus cascade-like hop character). rough body, the MO of full sail, but a quality of their house character and mashing that doesn’t bug me too much. decent IPA that leans east but isn’t something I’d find myself craving. nimbleprop (8708) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 13, 2010
22oz bottle pours a transparent bright orange with a thin white head. Nose is spicy, oranges, light soap, floral, perfume. Flavor is sweet, oranges, malts, caramel, citrus zest. Medium bodied and lightly sweet. Kind of blah.

Draught at Pilsner Room Portland. Malty English IPA. Medium Body. Taste is nothing exceptional. Average. radagast83 (8301) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Bomber. Poured a golden amber color with a foamy, slightly off-white head. Aroma was floral hops, slightly sweet malts. Flavor was bitter, hoppy, malty, a well balanced beer rounded off with a nice citrus character. BuckeyeBoy (8281) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Bottle pours out a golden topped with a white head. Aoma of citrus and floral hops. Taste of grapefruit peel and malts. PorterPounder (8226) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 22 oz bomber. Pours a slightly murky medium orange with a medium thick sticky white head. Aroma is fresh and floral with hints of spruce. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some white grape accents, a brief bit of citrusy goodness and some back end nuttiness. Mouthfeel is crisp, but not quite as thick and chewy as I would expect a Full Sail IPA to be. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2010
22. Pours crystal clear bright burnished coppery amber. Dense fluffy white head that sticks around for a while, if not forever. Mild orange peel nose with toast and caramel mixed in. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, and oranges again on the mid palate. Mild resiny finish. Not very creative or lively, but well made and flavorful enough. Decently refreshing.
