Orange with a small, persistent white head. Grapefruit and passionfruit aroma. Very thick textured, there is a little bit of grapefruit in the flavour, but the taste is mostly a hop hit. Curiously I also detect a small amount of honey sweetness. However that is probably just a psychological association with the colour and viscosity. trum22 (13) - USA - OCT 27, 2007
Pours a cloudy orange with a stark white head. Smells fruity and hoppy. Initial flavor is hops and carbonation, but has a bit of spice to it. Finishes nice with a nice mouthfeel. This is a good summertime beer, maybe the best IPA I’ve had. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2007
Orange with good, foamy white head / Pine and pineapple nose / Light body, some malts and modest hops, with good finish / Simple, cooked flavor of pineapple with pine and caramel on the finish / A fine but not stellar effort. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2007
12 oz. bottle from Quinton’s (Iowa City, IA). Poured a light orange gold that was hazy. Smelled of fruits, namely ctirus. Taste is sharp, of hops and dry malts. I almost detect some piney notes but the beer mainly holds a dry citrus hoppiness that dominates. Not the best IPA out there, but certainly a formidable beer. A very inviting brew that I will drink again. 17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2007

Nice hazy dark orange pour. Fruity aroma. Hops jump out right away, little bit of pinetree, little bit salty. Crisp palate that suits the big hop taste well.

Bottle. Pours a golden orange body with a white head. Nice citrus and pine notes among a light caramel hoppiness. Grass and a mild hoppy finish. Needs more IBU’s. EHSRanders (2086) - Tjele, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2009

On tap at Wrigleyville Goose Island. Poured a clear gold with a white head. Aroma consisted of piney hop notes, nothing too complex. Flavor was nice w/ a good balance of hop flavor throughout. radagast83 (8446) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2009
