bottle - Pours hazy copper with a two finger head that laces well. Naturally it smells of hops with some citrus and floral notes. the flavor is well hopped but also pretty well balanced. it has a pleasantly bitter finish. Tasty!

Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Thanks for the brew ckeegan04 Poured into a standard pint glass amber bodied brew with a good two finger worth of head that goes to a nice looking lace The floral piney hops hit your nose first then the malts follow it up. Flavors are a nice hop forward but not to hoppy that it makes you pucker a nice balance .A nice mouthfeel with proper carbonation for the style An easy drinking IPA very sesionable I could easily grab a six of this a good brew all in all

Golden color with a citrusy aroma. Flavor of mild hops with some citrus, floral notes, and mild sugar. Smooth finish. Solid IPA, but nothing amazing.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Bottle shared at the CA-GA cultural beer exchange hosted by alexanderj. Caramel / tan with off white head. Aroma is old citrus hops, pretty lemony. Flavor is caramel malt, somewhat biscuity, light roast, and the same old hops.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Bottle; pours a caramelly-orange with a creamy, off white head. Aroma was very caramelly; some grass, citrus and herbal elements Flavor had a caramel and biscuit backbone; earthy bitterness, although it was pretty minimal for the style. It was easy drinking, but just not enough bitterness to make it a good example for the style.

4.1
badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Pours a nice, fairly clear, amber color; but with very little head and no lacing. Smell has some nice juicy citrus hops, balanced well with the some sweet caramel from the malt. This one has a very nice aroma to it, but not quite a 4.5 for me. Taste comes off a little more floral, but still retaining an excellent balance of malt and hops. By balance, I mean that hops are dominant, as it is an IPA, but the malt keeps it from being one sided. Less than medium level of carbonation, with a medium body. This is a beer that beginners can love as well as the experienced hophead. I think this would be a staple beer of mine if it were available in my area.
