12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate cream head that leaves a sticky web of a lacing. Aroma is dominated by citrus and pine notes with caramel lying underneath them. Taste is the same, with the citrus and pine notes being more pronounced, and the caramel barely being noticable. deyholla (12590) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Bottle. Poured a golden amber with an off white head. Aroma was full of hops both citrus and piney. Flavor was nicely balanced as it began with citrus and ended with a pine kick. TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle. Poured a medium amber with a fluffy head. Light hop nose. Well balanced and pretty drinkable beer. Finish is fairly bitter. Pretty good. satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2009
aroma of strong toffee crunch and background of pine. appearance is mostly clear sunshine. flavor is bigger then its labeled style and ABV present: big balance of toffee malt and huge pine crush. this is one intelligent IPA. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2009
I’m getting a lot of citrus and floral character in the arouma. I’m not getting that excited about this beer. It’s got a nice mouthfeel, bubbly and smooth, but the taste is just not that complex. It’s missing malt presence, I think, and finishes slightly astringent.
Possibly I’m not just in a great beer drinking mood right now.

A good IPA ilherps (249) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Nice aroma and flavor, lightly bitter with citrus. This doesn’t stand out in any way from other IPAs though. Good beer kangaroo (67) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2009
A very mild aroma with grassy notes. Pours amber and leaves behind fine lacing. The taste produces citrus hops aplenty, crisp and refreshing. The malt is mild and not obtrusive leaving hops in the forefront. A nice pleasant hops bitter in the finish. Not a single off-note in this beer. NayTron (133) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Pours with almost no head. Smells of hops and flowers. Taste very light bodied with a pleasant hops bitter. Not a real robust IPA but good. Pwn3d (1958) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2009
On tap at rattle n hum. Candi sugar and citrus hop aroma. Taste is tart, sugary, and grapefruit bitterness. A solid medium body, somewhat creamy. Slightly better than I expected.
