Bottle at GBBF 2009. An amber coloured pour with a decent white head. Hoppy aroma as expected. Malty, fruity, hoppy taste. Nicely balanced IPA. Reasonably good. coolbeans22 (11) - Teachey, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2009 Pours a nice amber color. Smells of piney, citrus notes. Overall a very nice IPA. Would buy again. beerwolf77 (42) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2009
After reading the bottle I’m excited to get this one into a glass. It pours a bright burnt orange thats very clear. The head was minimal but left amazing amoutns of sticky lace all around my glass. The aroma was hoppy but I got plenty of malt sweetness as well. The flavor was delicious. Almost perfect balance of biting hop bitterness and malt sweetness in every gulp. A vicious piney wallop hits on the finish. The beer has a medium body with mild carbonation. On par for style. I really enjoyed this beer. My tastes have started to come around to the bigger hop flavors so this was right up my alley. I can see myself picking this up again. ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 22, 2009
I haven’t rated this yet? - 2009 Bottle - Pours clear orange with a frothy off white head...aroma is biting citrus peel and massive hop florals, with some sticky pine resin mixed in as well...flavour is different than I remember, slightly sweet caramel up front, giving way to grapefruit and pine bitterness that lingers shortly and is then gone...decent IPA, but doesn’t blow me away any more....hmm... fromred2green (187) - , Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Bottle. Golden with a large white head. Great lacing. Aroma of mostly floral hops. Flavor is mostly hops - once again the floral variety. Other hops are present in the taste that are not present in the aroma. Crisp and refreshing. Good beer.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2009 Bottled. Slightly hazy amber with big white head that thins quickly. Nice big hop aroma with notes of fruit. Flavor is a blast of sweet malts with caramel notes balanced with fruity hops that ends with a long dry finish. Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2009

Draft at The Bier Garden. Pours a lacing, off-white head with a golden-amber body. Smells strongly of citrus hops along with some spice hops and dirty socks. Flavor is floral and spicy hops with some honey. Finish is citrus and bitter hops. ben4321 (6548) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2009
These guys make a really tasty IPA, comes at a decent price too. Solid and enjoyable example of the style.
