3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Starts off with a harsh hop bite, then eases off to a milder IIPA. With a one sided feel to it. If what you want is a hop pellet with liittle else this is it. For me it lacked the malt balance and a little more flavor complexity. It does finish with a nice tropical fruitiness and a bit on the sweet side.

Draft at Solana Beach. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of hops, grass, grapefruit, and pine needles, and so is the flavor, leading to a dry grassy and rather bitter finish. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Draft... RBSG... Lightly hazed golden ale with an orange tint and a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. Piney, grapefruity aroma also offers malty notes of toffee and caramel. Full-bodied and chewy with spiky carbonation. Leans on the bitter side of balance. A wealth of malty caramel and toffee sweetness is outdone by oodles of grapefruit pith and evergreen bitterness. Lengthy, bittersweet finish with a dash of salt. BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 23, 2008
On draft at O’Brien’s.
Appearance is a murky dull orange hue, minimal off-white head, moderate lacing.
Smell is sweet hops [pine/citrus], hints of candy bubblegum, grassy and floral tones.
Taste is big pine-grassy hops with a dominating alcohol presence initially, sweet fruits and bread malts soon enter, finishes dry and bitter.
Mouthfeel is full-bodied, oily thick texture coats the tongue and mouth, prickly carbonation.
Drinkability is moderate, very strong and hoppy DIPA that is in the ’hop bomb’ range, the stiff alcohol presence impairs extensive drinking.

Draft. lightly hazy amber beer with an off-white head. Big grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit/summer fruit flavor with caramel backing. Medium body. Big hop flavor, but bitterness could use a little boost. Lingering summer fruit/grapefruit and some caramel. yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2008
From tap at Solana Beach. Pours slight cloudy orange with a lacing white head. Aroma is fruity hops of grapefruit but also a bit spiced. Solid spiced and hoppy flavour with a nicely balanced caramel malt base. Dense flavourful brew yet also smooth. Smooth and nice finish with bitterness and dry fruity flavours. Lovely.
