Poured from the bomber. Golden color with a white head. Aroma is biscuity malt with floral and citrusy hops. Flavor is similar with a slightly spicy floral hop note coming through as the dominant flavor. Medium bodied and mildly astringent. After reading the deScription on the bottle more closely I think I'm picking up on the Vienna malt/floral hop combo. It's not bad but not my favorite flavor profile.

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Orange pour with a white head. Kind of a fruity pebbles type aroma. Grass, orange, tangerine, and grapefruit. Hints of pine, a bit of bread sweetness, and very light pineapple. The flavor is a little bit sweet and malty. Some bread, pineapple, and sweet citrus notes. Mild pine flavor and bitterness.

Blake (396) - Orange, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Had on tap on Lamppost side of pizza place/brewery. Pours golden yellow with good head and retention. Aroma of hops, tannins, and hay. Taste is somewhat harsh and I’m told by my drinking buddy that he has had better. Maybe bad lines, maybe a bad batch? I shall have to try again and re-rate at a later date. As is, this IPA was a major let down, however, it had the bad luck of being the next thing I had after just imbibing 18 oz. of Pliny the Younger.

GABF 2008. Bronze medal winner this year. Hazy orange amber. Terrific ballance of caramel malt with a hint of burnt sugar, married to lively passionfruit and citrus hoppiness. Juicy and refreshing, nice bitter finish.
