this is a clear straw colored intoxicant emanating a full spectrum hop aroma. light on the palate, an easy all afternoon on the diamond refreshment. the malt is there though just slightly, not sugary at all. Nice long lasting bitter finish lemasney (398) - Trenton, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2008

On tap at Radio Maria in downtown Champaign. Served in a tulip glass. Amber colored pour with a small white head. Strong floral and pine hop aroma. Flavor was similar. Intense grapefruit and piney hops. Not balanced by any means - just a hint of caramel malts lurking underneath the intense hop bitterness. Dry finish, medium mouthfeel. Hop resins linger on the palate. Top notch if you’re looking for a very bitter but somehow still very drinkable IPA. nparikh (20) - New York, New York, USA - APR 12, 2008
On tap. Pours light gold with a thin but frothy head. Nose is sweet but citrusy, like red grapefruit; just lots of hops and a bitterness that never really goes away. I felt the bitterness was the major characteristic, but I enjoyed it. AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2008
Pours a nice golden amber in color. Has a nice quarter inch head on the pour, and maintains a nice froth on top of the beer.

Smell is wonderful floral and citrus hops. Very nice. Taste is the same, but there’s a nice bite to it. This is an incredible IPA that would stand up to some DIPA’s. Good and refreshing on the mouthfeel. Well done.
Thx for another great tasting, Kim (Beljohansen) !!! Light amber, nice haed, hops, fruit, flowers and spices, bitter. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2008
Pours a dark amber color with foamy white head. Very hoppy aroma balanced by caramel malt presence. Flavor very similar to arom. Very quaffable IPA with a nice sweet maltiness balancing out the bitter hops. Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - APR 10, 2008
Clear amber of color with a nice, longlasting beige head. An aroma malt, grapefruit and hops A flavor of hops, grapefruit, malt and notes of caramel. DietPepsican (1590) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 9, 2008
Amber with a thin white head. Aroma is strong hops. Flavor is hoppy as well, surprise. Some citrus and caramel in the background. Has a nice bitter finish. Good! pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 8, 2008
Bottle. Pours a light yellowed amber with some haze, because sometimes I pour too heavily. The nose is sharp with hops. Bitter for the sake of bitter? Not a lot of malt, so the balance is out of whack in my mind. But still, not a bad beer. Fuller mouthfeel. Creamy with smaller bubbles. The flavors are along the same lines. Maybe a bit of past prime hops? Maybe just too much hop? Stronger bitterness hides subtlety. Lack of malt body. Still refreshing. Not particularly flawed, but not balanced and lacking nuance.
