Big hop aroma. White head. Clear golden coloured and hoppy with a nutty flavour. A hint of bitterness in a vegetable malt finish. bnoel09 (588) - Elk Grove, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Poured into a pint glass. Color is golden like straw with a thick cream colored head. Aroma is all hops with good citrus and floral hop notes. Nice hop flavors without overwhelming bitterness. Palate is smooth with nice level of carbonation and a crisp slightly bitter finish. Overall a nice IPA with high drinkability. anderson01 (357) - Spirit Lake, Idaho, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Aroma is very hoppy which drowns out the malt. A strong floral nose in the beginning and follows with a slap in the face of citrus. Clear pale lager in color with a frothy white head. Exceptional lacing. Hoppy flavor that sticks with you well after you take a drink(which i like). Full-bodied beer that leaves my mouth feeling clean. Overall i was very pleased with this beer. bth122 (1704) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Poured a golden color. Draft. Medium head. Fresh floral and fruity hop aroma. Med bitter. Oily palate, med bodied. A very hoppy ipa. I’ve tasted smoother but not bad. sthlm (790) - Blank, Alabama, USA - MAR 17, 2011
[Bottle] Pours amber with a nice off-white head. Aroma is very similar to some wild hops I found out in the woods--grassy, some grapefruit...some unfortunate simcoe character comes out as it warms. Taste is moderate bitterness, a vague sweetness in the background, and some grapefruit. Average mouthfeel, smooth. Overall, not very memorable, but a solid effort nonetheless.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2013 The aroma of barley being malted is present and is absolutely killer. It is like drinking cotton candy.
This brew is a great brew and is probably unmatched.
It don’t get no better.
update: re-rate to a 5.
It is a great brew that is unmatched.

341 ml bottle. Golden colour with white head. Nice aroma; hops, floral, citrus, exotic fruits. Taste is grassy hops galore and fruits, with a bit of malt. But aftertaste is all bitter, and longlasting. Good beer. RickTStiles (827) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2011

clear amber pour with small white head. huge florals in the nose...that being said, i am expecting some intense bitterness in the mouth. a touch of malt come across in the aroma as well. hugely fresh flavor...massive perfume and flower petals...drying finish. crisp, fresh kev1001 (67) - Montana, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours light and clear for an IPA. Tastes nice and hoppy with some grapefruit and pine and a little skunkyness to it. Pretty enjoyable but would like to see it a little bolder.
