This was one of those drinks where I knew during the pour, looking at the wonderful golden straw body and cascading, billowing, mountainous ecru head that it was going to be hard live up to my visually derived expectations. Sadly, I was correct. Malt was simple and somewhat musty. Strange sour yeasty component. Somewhat fruity and estery. Very bland hop profile, some light citrus notes and light resin. You got the look down, now work on the substance.

JaBier (7424) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2009
12oz bottle from the mix pack. Cloudy orange color with a medium white head. Citrusy hop aroma with a bit of malt sweetness. Hoppy flavor with a little less malt than expected. Sort of thin finish. Pretty good overall.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Bottle from Westmere Beverage in Albany. Nice hazy orange/light amber in color. Strong carbonation with a long lasting pillowy off white head. Aroma of citrus, and floral hops, but the strength is moderate at best. Taste has light to moderate citrus and floral hops for the style, with a good malt backbone. The malts are interesting enough; but the hops just aren’t assertive enough for the style for me personally. Finishes light to moderately bitter. This one may have some age on it.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Pours hazy orange-gold, large beige head, suspended sediment. Large, rocky head, well-retained, ring after ring of lace, effervescent. Really, a beautiful beer. Strong aroma of grapefruit juice. Flavor is citrus and pine resin up front, overtly yeasty in the middle, finishing bitter, maybe a bit too much so, but still a fine IPA. Flavor is medium bodied, very fruit-juicy, with a strong hop burn. Delicious.

Pours orange gold into a shaker. Bright white head recedes leaving no lacing. Citrus and pine aromas. Creamy sour resin upfront with a grapefruit finish.

maugus4ever (123) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Pours a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus and pine hops. Great balance of hops and malts. A very drinkable IPA that is not overly hoppy.

thooper41 (556) - BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2008
12oz bottle: Appearance is a hazy golden brown with slow fading white head, aroma filled with citrusy hops, flavor again very hoppy with a good amount of malt backbone. style of hops it a good change from the NW IPA I am used to, although this IPA is not all that complex it is unique in hop selection.

alexsdad06 (9740) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2008
12 oz. bottle from jsquire. Pours amber with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma has sweet caramel malts with citrus and piney hops. The flavor is more on the herbal/pine side than citrus with a caramel malt backbone. This turned out to be a decent surprise from a recent trade.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Pours a nice golden amber with a 1 fingercreamy off white head. Aroma is is big on caramel, toffee, crusty bread, floral and citrus hops. Flavor is heavy on pine hops, a little soap and very little citrus for the style. Malt is caramel, a little toffee, sweet bread, toast and some grain. FInish has some yeasty spice, citrus, and bitter hops, a bit of fruity soap, and some toast that seems to carry on a long while.
