[2495-20090926] Tap. Navel orange hops aroma is a little grainy. Slightly hazy, orange amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Sweet navel orange hops flavour has grainy bitter hops. Medium body is bitter. Wow, awesome game beer.

12 oz bottle from Princeton’s. Golden color, decent head and lacing. Sweet malty hoppy aroma. Sweet and slighty malty flavor with fair amount of hops but not too bitter. Sweet citrusy finish. rader58 (899) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Pours a clear honey color. Aroma is very floral with strong hops. Strong floral hops on initial taste, which diminishes to a smooth finish that isn’t too overwhelming. Strong hops is well balanced in the finish. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2009
0.355 l bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2009. Orange amber color. Juicy hop aroma with orange, mango and grapefruit. Bittersweet flavor with juicy grapefruity, mangoish and grassy hop. Firm but not very strong bitterness for an IPA. Slightly salty finish. Hoppy mouthfeel. Very juicy IPA. exparte (59) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2009
An appealing golden color. Pours with a solid one inch head and nice lacing. Moderate spicy hop aroma. Strong malt backbone offsets the hops nicely. Finishes slightly spicy sweet. Loses some points as I prefer my IPAs with a higher gravity and much more aggressive hop profile. Still, this is a well-crafted beer that I would recommend for those that enjoy their IPAs on the lighter side.

12 oz. Bottle. Poured a nice golden color. Decent white head. Smelled of hops. Tasted of hops as well. Good IPA. Recommended. Bronzan (158) - Windsor, California, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Smooth..one of my personal favorites. Good hop favor, but not terribly strong. An IPA that I can have a couple of at a time. ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2009 This beer is too easy to drink. I’m surprised, because I drink alot of Lagunitas... And I’m not used to this lightness. Light aroma, light almost amber hop flavor, with only a hint of finish. This is a great summer beer... WVHouseofBeer (1065) - West Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Pours a golden color with a moderate amount of white head and some lacing. Good hops flavor nicely balanced with malt, although not as hoppy has they claim. Medium bodied, and an all around good IPA. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Light and refreshing. Not heavy on bitter by any means (caution I like hops). This has a different taste that i find interesting. This is by no means as good as Racer 5 or Founders but it is good in taste and for being unique.
