On tap at Mcmenamins on the Columbia.Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Pours medium amber in color with an off-white head and very clear. Very unique flavor. The hops are good and definitely there as well as a nice cinnamon spice note. Very interesting ginger soy sauce flavor. Not my first choice for an IPA but points for originality!
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2008 Not a fresh bottle. Had to pour slowly to keep the quarter inch of sediment down. Dark amber. Almost no head because of cautious pour. Lots of great flavors. Pine, citrus, bitter, yummmmmmmy. leninthedesert (116) - Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Fantastic IPA. Crisp and clean. Citrus in the initial taste, somewhat spicy. Smooth, hoppy flavor in the finish. ahalloin (54) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2008
Pours a cloudy dark golden color with a lush foamy head that clings to the side of the glass. Their are some chunks of yeast floating around in my glass as well! The aroma is very rich with toffee, caramel, citrus, and some pine. The palate is light on the carbonation and smaller than I would have predicted for a Lagunitas beer. The flavor seems skewed toward the malty for an IPA. Not bad, but different. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2008
pours a clear copper with little head. Aroma strong of citrus, particularly grapefruit, orange, and lemon. Flavor is similar, with more hop bite and a nice bitter aftertaste. Tasty brew, different than your typical IPA, but still nice.

this does not drink like an IPA. i had it out of a bottle, and it tasted sweet and sugary, with a strong grapefruit flavor. it tastes much more like linenkugel’s sunset wheat than a normal pale ale. in fact, it tastes it tastes a lot like lemon-lime soda. however, it does have a decent aroma, but the aroma does not match an IPA. i bought this beer expecting an IPA and i was very disappointed.

Had this while on vacation in CA. A wonderful beer to have on tap at so many "regular" places. Though a relatively simply mix of hops and malt, still so much more to this beer than what one usually finds when out at a family resteraunt. omhper (24973) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2008 Bottled at Ørsted Ølbar, Copenhagen. Clear amber,small head. Aroma of grapefruit. Lots of caramelly malt, more so than hops. Above medium bodied with good levels of bitterness. TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear orange, with a two-finger head. Aroma of citrus hops and a bit of malt. The flavor is assertively hoppy, though well-balanced with malts. Bready aftertaste, and very bitter. Solid, but there are many better IPAs out there. Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2008
