Light copper colour, nice fluffy white head. Fruity, citrus and slightly piney hop aroma, very nice. Light to medium bodied, with nice hop/malt balance. I expected a little more matliness though, more thickness on the palate. But a very nice, easy drinking Pale Ale. cgarvieuk (24163) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle at Cropredy ... copper ... big foam head ... sweet pale ale hop nose... soft toffee ... light hop fruit ... easy. 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2009
22oz bomber shared with funkybrewster. Pours a lovely glowing orange amber with a nice sticky white foamy froth with great sticky lacing. Mmmmm fresh! what an aroma! super green oily sticky piney resiny hop pellets, some sweet sticky rich honey and caramel just underneath, beautiful! Flavor is also quite green, hop pellets, lots of hops, soo soo green tasting, a bit herbal, some med/light toasty caramel with a very bitter finish. Medium bodied, on the thinner side though, light stickiness. The greenness is amazing in the aroma, but of course it hurts the flavor a bit. drowland (8629) - Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2009
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Not too shabby... nice fruity/citrus hop notes, but not as good as their crazy story, as usual. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Bottle, shared by Taylor. Thanks dude. Golden orange with a small white head. Nice floral hoppy nose. Flavor is bitter- earth and pine, and a slight buffalo chicken wing thing. Really strange. Bitter finish.

Bottle @ GBBF ’09. Clear amber with thick lacing white head. Strong citrus, pine and floral aroma. Sweet toward a bitter dry end. Fruity. Medium bodied. bubbleflubber (2210) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Pours on draught a clear orange-amber, with a nice offwhite retentive head. Big floral aromas, with nice orange citrus upfront in the mouth. This is followed by solid rind and zest notes midway through, and a crisp pine needle hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is clean and almost fruity, with a medium body. Lingers appropriately, wi a nice hint of pepper in the back-palate, closing the pull very well. A nice offering. 6ROW (463) - corpus christi, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2009
amber pour with a small dense off white head. very little hops aroma, great hops taste, not over the top on ibu’s . a few fruit esters JaBier (7806) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a medium off-white head. Bready and sweet malt nose with some earthy hops. Citrus and grassy hop flavor up front giving way to sweet malt before a bitter finish. natejgood (508) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Pours a dark golden color with a thick, off-white head that is very foamy and leaves nice lacing on the glass. The aroma is somewhat fruity and sweet with a hint of hops. I would have expected the hop aroma to be a little stronger in an IPA. The flavor is also only slightly hopped. It is more malty and fruity than most IPAs I have tasted. At some points it has an almost appley flavor. It’s not a bad flavor and is easy to drink because it is crisp in the mouth, but it is not what I generally expect from an IPA. Overall, this is a good beer, but it is a bit off the beaten path as far as IPAs go. It’s a little different, so as long as you are expecting that you should enjoy this beer.
