muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Bottle. Pours hazy orange/copper, with a lot of yeast particles floating around. Aroma is obviously full of hops, a lot of apricot and thick syrupy notes come up as well. Flavor is much the same, grapefruit hops really standout, with an herbal tea-like finish. Sweet caramel malts back it up, although they really take a backseat. Mouthfeel is nice and rich.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Pours a slightly murky golden hue. Moderate white billowy head with restrained aromas of hops and lemon. Smooth oily and resiny on the tongue. Upront hops and some citrus malt sweetness. Very good lasting finish. Fine DIPA

Skyview (5868) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Picked up single 12-oz bottle at John’s Market Place in Portland, Oregon. Pours a hazy caramel amber brew with a thick off-white head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet grapefruit, some roasted caramel malt, and more piney hops. Taste is medium to full bodied, chewy and light carbonated with a heavy grapefruit and citrus flavor. Finish is slightly tart with a herbal bitter aftertaste. A decent West Coast-style IPA.

Cloudy gold color. The aroma has abundant hops. Flavor is almost all hops as well, with some citrus and herbal, hop bitterness. Very drinkable.

Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Hazy orange body wit no head. Hazy body as well. Citrus grapefruits on the nose with a sweet grapefruit flavor. A little malt running around in there.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Thanks to skyview for sharing. Pours a slightly hazy orangish amber, with a beautiful whitish head. Super citrus on the noes with grapefruit dominatiing. Very nice creamy citrus palate with a nice butter rum mid-palate. Very cool.

FLnative80 (174) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Bottle. 12 fl. oz. An unclear, orange beer with thick, frothy, off white head. Aromas of grapefruit and butterscotch. Creamy texture and full-bodied with little carbonation. Flavor is nicely balanced with heavy malt sweetness and a lingering bitter ending. Much more malty than most IPAs I’ve tried. Similar to Indica from the Lost Coast brewery, only stronger. Overall, a good beer.

hopslovin (194) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Amber pour, foamy off-white head. Citrus and a little spice in the aroma. Sweet malt taste with a slightly bitter finish. Not a big enough hop presence in this one for my liking. Much better DIPAs available.

weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Appears a hazy, orange toned amber with a 2 finger, fluffy, off-white head that fades into a small cap. Tons of dry hopped fallout floats around the brew like nuclear sludge. Plenty of scattered lacing is left around the glass. Smell is of biscuit, caramel, pine, grass, and mild fruit notes. Taste is of the mentioned aromas with a slightly herbal scent mixed with brown sugar also coming through in the flavors. Mouthfeel is full bodied, boozy, fizzy, with hints of creaminess, chewy, sweet, and lightly bitter.
