Clear golden with a fluffy white head. Huge lemon grapefruit and pine aroma. Butterscoth citrus lemon and light pine taste. Medium bodied creamy palate. Outstanding ipa. doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Genious. Pours lightly hazy, orange/amber with a medium sized head, that leaves good lace. Smells citrusy and grassy hoppy with a mellow, lightly sweet malt backdrop. Tastes all hops. Bitter and citrusy sweet with lots of citrus and some grass. Nice, medium/full body with great carbonation. Classic. popery (2170) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bistro 13th IPA Fest notes. For the day, I picked this as the runner-up, a close second to Russian River’s Hopfather. Extremely pungent aroma. Intense and thick with tons of hops. Grapefruit, floral, pine hops combine wonderfully with honey and light malt notes. A real hop juice. Solidly bitter in the finish, nearly astringent. Medium dry and smooth. Great stuff.

Fad: Flot orange øl med et fint lille skumhoved. Kraftig duft af humle, citrus og en smule mango. Virkelig lækker smag, balanceret imellem den kraftige humling og en god maltsødme. Dejlig dejlig IPA. fiulijn (20993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2011

Hazy light amber color; creamy head. Very deep hop aroma, fruity and creamy; peaches, apricots; the final is nicely earthy. The body is well structured, and the mouthfeel is very smooth; highly carbonated; toffee flavor, on the dry side, with minimum residual sugars; powerful hopping, with smooth but determined resins, and a fruity touch. The final is dry and bitter. Very good, apparently still quite fresh.
Tasted at the Bistro’s 13th Annual IPA Fest 8/7/2010. This IPA pours a light orange gold color from the tap. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is orange and citrus with a touch of fruitiness. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet, orange and apricot. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Good carbonation. Medium bitterness and a touch dry at the finish, but lots of residual sweetness. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

From tap at Ølbaren. Pours cloudy orange with frothy, stable and white head. Aroma is dense pinewood and grapefruit hoppy. Bitter and bonedry hoppy flavoured with a solid malt base. Bitter, solid fruity and slight malt base. Brandman (2955) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2011
Golden body, white head. Aroma has lots of hops. Pines, citrus, grapefruit. Flavour has balanced hops with caramel malt. Really perfect example of IPA. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 3, 2012
On tap at the Carlsbad location. Pours with a hazed golden hued body with a small white head that lasts and leaves good lace. Aromas are of orange, marmalade, pineapple, medium dankness, floral hops. Very light malt presence. Flavors are dank, floral, spicy hops, citrus, pine resin. Medium evidence of high cohumulone hops felt with the hop bitterness and light throat burn. High bitterness with a bitter balance that is not overwhelming. Medium bubbles, dry. Classic Pizza Port IPA. dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2010
(on tap at carlsbad). Pours dark yellow with caramel hue. Aroma of grapefruit and pine. Taste is bitter (grapefruit). Medium bodied with long bitter finish. I thought this was an excellent beer and my preference for how IPAs should be made.
