Fruity hop aroma. Golden coloured a little hazy in appearance and hoppy with a pineapple flavour. A hint of bitterness in a dry malt finish. OldGrowth (3474) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2011
on tap at Mellow Mushroom Asheville. Good aroma, sweet. Citrus, orange when cold, more grapefruit as warmed. really a Orange creamsicle scent. Litely hazed brownish orange. Good head, spotty lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter dry finsih. Nice, solid ipa, flavor has soapy streak about it that was slight turnoff, but didn’t ruin it. jtclockwork (17101) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle thanks to Jcwattsrugger. Pours semi-clear copper gold. Nose of pineapple, caramel malts, citrus and light pinewood box. Taste is strong caramel malts with citrus, hops and a dry almost cedar wood finish. Mouth feel is a little on the thin side, but not bad. Decent over all IPA.

Lemony/citrus. Very spicy, hoppy. pine... not overly bitter. fresh tasting crisp finish. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a golden orange with some light floaties and a big, rocky offwhite head. The aroma is spicy hops mostly, with some hints of yeast and light sweet malt. The flavor is a nice spicy bitterness with just a touch of grapefruit. It’s balanced with some light toast and malt character. The hops become more herbal toward the finish, where there is also a bit of graininess. Mild bitterness lingers into the aftertaste. Not bad. jsquire (4578) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Hazy orange out of the bottle with a short lived white head. Sweet candied grapefruit rind nose. Thin grapefruit juice flavors with some malts underneath. Easy drinking IPA but not very interesting. Butters (4063) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Mildly hazy dull golden pour, with tan head. Citrus and herbal hop notes, with freshness and caramel backbone. Hop tea finish. Decently high bitterness. Pretty good, but nothing special. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 1, 2010
THOUGHTS: Nice. Very well balanced. Nice and intense transition from sweet to bitter. Became a little too sweet part of the way into it, but still enjoyable. It was sort of like the flavor profile of a Double IPA in the body and ABV of a regular IPA.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, light, orange with a large, off-white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma wasn’t bad, but it was very weak. There was very light caramel; moderate, pine and citrus hops, but mostly orange hops; along with slight honey. There was also some apricot with first poured. The initial flavor was sweet and light to moderately bitter; while the finish was heavily to almost harshly sweet and rather to heavily bitter with a long duration. There was marmalade, sugar water, caramel malt, grapefruit hops, orange hops, other citrus hops, a little pine hops, apricot, ever so slight cream (in an orange creamsicle sort of way) and a tiny bit of toast, too. The medium body was slightly syrupy with lightly fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.
