UPDATED: SEP 4, 2008 It has a great hazy appearance with a golden honey color. The aroma is full of floral hops up front with malt and yeast notes in the background. Its flavor has an herbal and almost fruity hop character with a heavy supportive base of toasted malts and doughy yeast that adds a nice complexity. It has a silky light to medium body that’s a little bit oily and has a fairly short dry finish. Wonderful. OKBeer (1175) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2004 Mondial de la Biere 2004. Golden amber colour with a frothy white head. Cask-like appearance. Piny, citrus, minty, almost eucalyptus aroma. Flavour starts slightly toasty and minty, finishing with a pleasant lingering piny and grapefruit bitterness. Medium bodied and juicy. TaktikMTL (7975) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2005

Robe blonde très claire surmontée d’une mousse presqu’inexistante. Arômes de houblon résineux et de pamplemousse. Saveurs de caramel, de pamplemousse et de citron. Contra (30) - USA - APR 4, 2006
Golden brown, with a decent amount of carbination. Hops, as you’d expect, are at the forefront. This gives way to a nice, even finish. Very well balanced, with a light body, and a blend of pine/cedar and undertones of apriocot. Very nice.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2007 I love this IPA. Terrific aroma and a great hop flavor balanced with creamy malt. A nice dry finish. Too bad this is only available part of the year. noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Hazy brown. Medium head, quickly shrinks to a skim with impressive, lomg-lasting lace. Smell of grapefruit, herbs (hops), grass and, barely, malt. Flavor is big hops -- astringent grapefruit and herbs. The malt’s there, not that you taste it, rather that you don’t notice any lack of body. Good palette. I’m a bit of a hop-head at times, I like this really cold. aimtofail (6) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 30, 2008 does not count

I can remember a time when I didn’t like IPAs. Oh, that was many moons ago! I’ve finally come around. This brew is damn tasty. Definitely worth a try. Deep orange hue with a nice head. Good taste, nice alcohol content - what more could you want? Plus, the artwork is pretty trippy...man. It is fun to admire and those who see you holding it are likely to remark, "Whoa, cool artwork on that one!" cameraman (9) - Crestwood, Kentucky, USA - APR 3, 2012 does not count
The beer is poured to medium amber in color, with hints of gold along the sides of the glass. A half inch high head forms on top, which is cream in color. There is a slight scent of cracked grain at the start. Then the strong aroma of citrus strikes the nose. That is followed by grass and pine fragrances at the end. The surprising flavor of bread is at the front of each taste, followed by a yeasty twang. It then blends itself to strong grapefruit bitterness, then ending with an earthy flavor. The feel is medium bodied, most of the way through. There is the slight feel of oiliness halfway, but does not deter the strong dry finish. This is beer is a hop heads go to beer, strong aroma, along with the big hoppy flavor; make this a beer for any occasion.
