Pours an orange color with a little white head. Has a heavy citrus hop smell to it. Taste is about the same but not as hoppy as I thought it was going to be. Nice IPA beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Wow. Floral aromas just jump out of the glass. Blast of grapefruit. Nice amount of bitter that doesn’t bite but imparts lots of flavor. richlikebeer (839) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2009
Very sweet aroma. Obviously a ton of hops which made it onterting to me that it wanst more bitter than it turned out to be. Also surprisingly absent was the slick oily mouthfeel which for me was a serious plus. BelgianBeerGal (4158) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Traded bottle. Slightly hazy copper colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is well blended between malt and fruity hops. Big hop flavour that finishes with some biting bitterness. Lingering malt in the finish. Pretty nice. AmEricanbrew (7011) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Clear amber with a white head. Very nice tropical fruit hoppy aromas. Medium body. Floral and citrus bitter hop flavors on a caramel malty base. Not too bad.

Picked up a growler at Kern River Brewing on the way to a camping trip up River, sure glad i did!
Pours a orange golden amber, with a decent head.
Wow what a nose! This is one of the best aroma’s I’ve had in awhile [must not have had a green flash in awhile?]
Great taste Hoppy but a malt backbone, pretty well balanced
Wish this was closer to home!
The Growler was perfect and the carbonation was good
the staff was very nice, and this place didn’t pitch a fit with ordering an IPA for a growler like *some* places....
Will be going back some day

Pours a clear golden hue with a light white head. Aromas of pine, citrus, sweet tarts and flowers. Mouth feel is light/medium bodied with a dry finish, but not overly bitter. Flavors of the same as the aroma with a light sweetness/caramel. The bottle says 6.8%. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Bottle; poured an orange-amber color. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, resin, earth and BO. Very nice aroma. Flavor was very herbal and citrusy. A pretty forthright and tasty beer, but easy to drink. Earthy throughout; very enjoyable beer. SamGamgee (2585) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Draught at the Bistro IPA fest. Clear gold with a lasting head. The aroma is soft and fruity with a nectar sweetness, lots of lemon zest, and flowers. Very balanced flavor with a soft bitterness and clean, dry malt flavors. Lots of fruity citrus hop flavor, with oranges standing out. For how big this is, it was pretty delicate on the palate; not sweet or boozy. Almost up there with hop father as my favorite of the day. nickd717 (4888) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Just outstanding? Well, almost. Some of my BA buddies loved this one. I thought it was good but not great. Orange-amber color with an off-white head. Aroma of light fruits and citrus/pine hops. Flavor of caramel malt, light fruits, and grapefruity, resinous hops on the finish. Not too "hoppy" per se, but rather more fruity. Lots of Simcoe hops it seems, which they apparently used for bittering, flavor, AND dry-hopping. Palate medium with soft carbonation.
