jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange with frothy white head. Aroma is full of hoppy resin and floral orange. Taste is moderately bitter with a sweet almost boozy finish. Great beer!

Garbageman (487) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2013
From bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with decent tan head. Aroma was sweet with a floral hops. Taste was caramel and an unbalanced sweetness. Has bittering but was way too sweet.

Pours a cloudy orange. Nice aroma of grapefruit/citrus. Not all that much going on with the taste. Some of the grapefruit comes through, but it is a pretty simple, easy drinking beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chicowv (478) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2012
12 oz bottle thanks to Ben & Marti: Pours slightly cloudy, rich brass color. Slightly white head, low CO2. Decent lacing. Aroma of light floral and citrus hops., clean and crisp. Nice flavor, light grapefruit, slightly bitter, super smooth. Great lighter flavor/colored beer with a 6% alcohol balance. Could be dangerous on a summer night.

kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - FEB 26, 2005
I had low expectations and was supprised. It had more flavor and palate than expected. Aroma was typical of an IPA. Flavor had the nice bite of bittering hops but had a nice malt backbone as well. A decent effort.

maltman53 (472) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Pours hazy blood orange, with a one-inch head and nice lacing, hoppy and citrus nose, medium-bodied malt backbone, slightly lacking malt depth, finishing a bit dry. All in all, a pretty good beer and true-to-type in the APA style.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Orange color with a fluffy white head. Pretty dense lacing. Citrusy aroma, mostly of the lemon/grapefruit variety. Moderately sweet malty body with nice carbonation and piney hop flavors. Quite a bitter finish. Tasty.

zombywoof (466) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Orange color with foamy head and decent lacing. Tastes like mandarin oranges with floral notes. A little soapiness. Not bad but Ive had better IPAs. Seems a little lightweight for an IPA unless you’re talking about an English IPA and I’m a bigger fan of the American version of IPA’s.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - AUG 31, 2008
12oz bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a fairly clear dark gold with a thin white head. Piney hop aroma. Decent malt base with some caramel malt sweetness. A slight sourness. Good hop bite, but not super bitter. Medium bodied. Solid, easy drinking IPA.

Bottle. Nice pour with a good head. Cloudy copper color. Lots of sediment. Nice palate. Slight bitter after taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
