Copper color, some haze. Blood orange aroma, tang of grapefruit. Some crystal flavor layered over further hints of citrus and some musty attic malt taste. Somewhat reserved palate. A quiet outdoor campfire, nicely subdued. zamco17 (134) - Corpus Christi, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2007

12 oz bottle from Liquid Solutions pours a hazy copper-orange with a great hop/malt aroma. Small white head. Flavor is a very good balance of wonderfully bitter hops and a lot of malt. I love this IPA. JohnnyZ (90) - Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2007
Dang, this is a bitter beer. Wonderful hoppiness and clarity. See through it like a window. The amount of alcohol is great when you want to get a buzz off only a couple of drinks. Great lacing, carbonation bite, and smooth finish with great taste. Had a big bottle a while ago, now picked up a 6 pack- Same as before if not better. Top notch IPA- I only wish I could figure out the recipe so I can make a clone. A hop head delight.

Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Présence d’agrumes en arrière goût. (Rating #958) Saarlander (1920) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - APR 10, 2007
nice copper pour with small head, lacing lasted for the whole beer. Lots of malt is there, with some nice hoppiness, but more subdued than expected. a little of an alcohol bite, but not too bad. Decent, but could us some balance. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2007
Copper Coloring with White Ring. Wet Hop, Sweet Malt Aroma. Sweet Malt Foundation...Alot of Wet Hop Flavor..Dry Hopped Aftertaste..Caramel Malt Balances Out the Brew...but Certainly a Hop Lovers Beer. RoboHop (21) - Chester Springs, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2007
This is a good DIPA. There isn’t much that stands out about it, however. It’s overall quality has been evidenced in countless other IPA’s. The best thing I can say about it is that it had a slight kick indicative of a higher alcohol level. hapjydeuce (1002) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 6, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2008 Good foamy head at the pour, nice amber color to it, with piny aroma. The hops are there, but I was expecting more from a "Maximus" IPA. Some grapefruit and orange citrus in the flavor, semi-balanced overall with an average finish on the palate. Nothing spectacular but worth a try if you’re a hop freak.
