OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2006
Poured from a 12oz bottle an amber color with a tan head. Very good lacing. Aroma was complex with lots of piney hops. The citrus hops came through in the flavor, a very good sweet grapefruit with a touch of caramel malts.

had so much yeast floating around it was ridiculous. some of the chunks were enormous. i spent a ton of time smelling this beer because it was so complex and wonderful. very malty, not particularly hoppy, reminded me of some kind of combination or sweet sundried tomatoes and velveeta or something. rich as hell, and very sweet. in terms of taste, kinda disappointing. it brought me back down to earth: certainly an IPA. definitely not an IIPA, maybe an APA. very low alcohol, to its advantage, but a very uncomplex beer. this exemplifies perfectly the idea of a clean tasting, massively hoppy beer (the IPA). it fits the profile very well (hence the high rating), but ill never buy it again. ill take the burning river or the two-hearted if i want a beer thats big on hops but not overpowering on alcohol.

brownaler (634) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2006
Poured into snifter. Golden red appearance with large off-white head. Fresh hop aroma. Body is smothed with piney hops that have a slight creamy mouthfeel. This is a definitely a winner.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - APR 15, 2006
Nose of flowers & spice, alcohol, some spruce and burnt molasses. The brew pours a hazy orange. The tight off white head is very creamy, and mostly lasting leaving a thin sheet of lace on the side of the glass. The flavor is both bitter, and moderately sour. Alcohol sweetness bleeds through and tumbles around on the palate. The medium body is soft and dry.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 11, 2006
The aroma had light malts, citrus, oranges, flowers, and candy notes. The beer poured a brownish orange color w/ thin lasting head and lace. The flavor has citrus, flowers, caramel, candy, and orange notes, and a hint of liquor. The mouthfeel was light and creamy, very bitter.

sammy3D (141) - Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2006
Fresh juniper mixed with pineapple and a touch of malt on the nose. Clear and amber appearance with a generous foam. Nice piney hops with touches of pineapple, grapefruit citrus bite and a maltiness that compliments the agressive bitters. The finish is long in the hops and the piney citrus lingers... intense! This brew delivers a full palate performance from start to finish. A far above average IPA.

SSSteve (4006) - - APR 5, 2006
orange amber with a small white head that is next to nothing. strong peach, apricot, mandarin orange aroma. this is loaded with hops. perfumey citrus grapefruit flavor. REALLY bitter(almost too bitter). medium bodied. burns your throat a bit. could use a little more malts to round the intense amount of hops but this is good stuff.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 5, 2006
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Very nice hazy amber color with a nice tan head. Aroma is piney and rather hoppy with floral hints. Taste is very hoppy and bitter, floral notes are very present with a nice malty middle and a smooth mix of hops and malt at the finish. Nice and bitter.

Pours a dark amber color - strong hoppy taste and rich mouthfeel, more like a DIPA than most regular IPAs I have had.
