on tap-pours an off white head with some lacing and copper color. Aroma is citrus-lemon/grapefruit, some medium malt. Taste is citrus-lemon/grapefruit-some bitter, secondary medium malt. ChainGangGuy (4930) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Appearance: Lightly hazed, medium copper body with a slowly settling white head.
Smell: Pale malts in the fore with traces of sliced bread and light caramel, slowly yielding towards the more aromatic hops with their fruity, tropical notes.
Taste: Standard pale malts supported by a bit of sweet caramel. Well-rounded hop flavors present, with plenty of grapefruit and tangerine with a staunch resinous, grassy backing. Moderate bitterness. Hint of mango emerging in the flavor as it warms. A pinch of warming alcohol on the soft, bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.
Drinkability: A smooth, tasty, well-built IPA. Once we started slowly ordering food, it helped to cut through the richness of the Lobster House’s lobster bisque. BeerandBlues2 (13823) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Draught. Pours clear amber with a large, creamy, white head, lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, cookie, straw), heavy hop (citrus, floral, pine), average yeast (sweat) with notes of peach, pear, apricot, and apple. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 15, 2009
Amber/orange pour. Full citrus hop aroma with a caramel malt kicker. Medium malt with a smooth creeping bitter that just grows. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Tap at Lobster Trap. Pours a clear copper with a thin head. Aroma is toasty malts, light sweet, tons of great fresh PNW hops, mint, pine, a bit dank/columbus-like, leafy- citrus. Flavor is clean, light toasty malts, green, mint, pine sap, citrus and light tropical hoppiness- very clean, low malt, high hop IPA. Nice.

Oark orange color with a white head. Aroma contains some citrus and caramel. This is east coast yo. Flavor is somewhat bitter but a good malt backbone. Flavor contains some grapefruit and lemons with some caramel. Overall a nice IPA. StinkBall (157) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Golden amber in color. Not much of a head (white, very thin). Very bitter aftertaste. This is a great IPA. Tastes a lot like the Two-Hearted Ale from Bell’s. If you go to the Lobster Trap in Asheville, order this beer you will love it. blipp (9696) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Fruity candy and citric hoppy aroma. The flavor has citrus fruits, some hoppy bitterness, and sweet malts. Pretty good. Butters (4176) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2009
Orange amber pour with small ring of off-white head. Great honey hop aroma and piney hop flavor. The sticky bitterness pervades in the finish but is not too overpowering Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a copper color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus and resiny hops. Taste is citrus and leafy hops with caramel. Medium bodied. Very straightforward IPA. Good.
