stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 11, 2009
Bottle, 33cl. Pours a orange beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is hoppy (citrus, cascade). The flavor is clearly hops, with all the characteristics from cascadehops, with both citrus and grapefruit. The palate gives a good hoppy bitterness, and overall this is a very good IPA, and a good example of single hop beer.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - MAY 10, 2009
11.2oz bottle, served in a shaker. This one poured an amber hue with a light haze and a two-finger thick head of lasting beige foam. Nice, even rings of lace were left around the glass. The aroma included fresh tangerines, peach, pine cones, and some light caramel. The flavor had crisp pine, mildly bitter orange, and some sturdy caramel. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and had light carbonation. The aroma was definately better than the flavor on this one, but it was still nice.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2009
It is hazy, dark orange and the head is huge and creamy. The aroma has notes of grapefruit, oranges and caramel. The flavour has a light sweetness and it is very aromatic with notes of citrus, mostly grapefruit and the orange-colored varieties, malt and delicious caramel. It is very harmonic and nice.

GMCC2181 (1606) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Bottle from SL. Poured into a snifter... Dry yeasty aroma. Redish orange in color, nice head. Malty and citrus taste. Nice fruity after taste. Nicely balanced overall... Medium carbonation level. Good beer... Side note this was sampled with mikkellers warrior and simcoe ipa... side by side... and imo was the best one overall..

riversideAK (6259) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Thanks to bvc for picking this bottle up in PDX for me. 100th rate of this beer. Fuck Yeah ho! Aroma of pine initially. Grapefruit rinds kick in. Under the hop nose is a good amount of sweet malty notes. Becomes rather fruity on the nose. Pours amber orange with a great head and awesome lacing. Very fruity IPA. The malt base is moderately sweet and the hops are fruity and pretty bitter. The Cascade hops gave notes initially of pine which turned into a citrus rind bitterness - like chewing on orange peel or grapefruit peel citrus bitterness that lingered for a long time. It might have been a little too sweet for me, but I loved the hop profile and the lingering resiny bitterness.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle thanks to mes, at mess gaff. Alround rating: Plasticy, pine, grapefurit, sweeter pale malts, belgian yeast. The hop character doesnt seem to have liked the yeast too much and has given it a synthetic taste, but its still quite drinkable stuff.

Not as good as the Simcoe, but very tasty. Intense candied orange, super aromatic. Belgian nuances. I like it. A lot.

larsniclas (6918) - Billdal, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2009
Bottled at Tre sm rum, Gothenburg Hazy ruby red with a medium, white head. Soapy aroma with some notes of peas and, of course, fruity cascade. Some berry-notes in the flavour along with salmiak. Not very pleasant mouthfeel.

eaglefan538 (3039) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 28, 2009
Poured a hazy amber-orange color with a very generous off-white colored head, great lacing all the away down, excellent retention, a very nice looking IPA. Nice strong citrus, piney hops. Flavor followed the aroma with orangey malts seemingly underneath the citrus and piney hops, finishing with a strong bitter element with some spicey hop zing with even a touch of healthy good teabags (the very rare ipa with tea bags that were very good, not detracting from the brew or just distracting w.r.t. the overall experience). A fun brew, mouthfeel was highly carbonated, very invigorating on the tongue. Surprisingly lots of flavor going on, despite the single-hoppedness.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 27, 2009
11.2oz bottle from Swolf3, thanks Wolf. Bright copper color with a white head. Citrus, kind of funky/dirty smelling, but not sour really, just dirty. Super bitter, just kind of smacks you in the mouth with hops. Very interesting, mellowed out as it warmed a bit, lots more citrus flavor developed as well.
