GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 31, 2008
22oz bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. Head was thick and off white with decent retention. Some lace was left behind at the end. Attractive aroma of crushed spruce needles, grapefruit, orange marmalade, and brown sugar. Initial delicate sweetness was quickly suppressed by assertive hop bitterness that peaked at about 7 out of 10. Light to medium bodied with caramel and citrusy/sprucy/sweaty hop flavors. Tasty.

Courtesy of foureyedgeek. Chunky bits float in an orange body with a thin beige head. Smells old and skunky, with cardboard, caramel, and slight hop notes. Tastes the same as the smell, and very flat and watery. Boring. Skip.

dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Bomber courtesy of foureyedgeek. Pours hazy, light copper with fizzy white head, thin and lingering. Nose is big on caramel and toffee, slight butter. Big caramel wit ha touch of chocolate and toffee, slight bread. Nice bitter at the end, moderate to moderate +. Good balance overall. Love the bitter. Nice beer. Not overly hopbomb-ie.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Courtesy of foureyed geek. A nice orange golden color with some sediment and a thick foamy white head. A little lacing as well. A malty figgy nose with a lot of brown sugar and some floral hoppy notes. A nice sweet balanced flavor. A lot of toffee, flowers, brown sugar, and a great bitterness. Like some of the other port stuff, the taste left isnt overpowering... just tasty.

Nate (4263) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2008
From bottle courtesy of foureyedgeek. Peach and pear, grassy fruity hops, light sweet malt, with a bit of buttered rum. A tad aged, perhaps. Hazy golden amber with some chunks, light off-white foamy lacing head. Medium watery body with medium-light carbonation, with a bit of warming. Starts mild, with oak and grassy hops, sweet malty buttery rum. Light grassy-hoppy bitter finish with pleasant sweet bitter after. A bit of broth, too. Nice IPA.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2008
A very solid IPA. Had it on tap, pours a hazy amber with a nice white head. Aroma is overpowering of hops, citrus dominating. Great flavor, nice carbonation, and nicely balanced. Good stuff.

Pours a hazy amber topped by huge frothy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is citrusy sweet, orange, caramel, grapefruit and floral. Flavor is medium sweet, orange peel, grapefruit and a small caramel backbone. Medium body, somewhat dry. Nice long piney bitter finish.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 21, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2008 Very nice, ultra hoppy California I.P.A. Pours with an average sized, creamy, white head covering a hazy orange body with lots of little particles. Great retention and lots of lacing. Extreme amout of floral hops on the aroma with some brown sugar. Quite bitter tastes, although there is a bit of fruit. Creamy smooth mouthfeel with perfect carbonation.

Re-Rate:
On tap curtousy of Tomme. Apparently a fresh batch. It shows. The aroma is slightly soapy, but the taste just blows me away with lots of ultra fresh grapefruit and tangarines. Great lacing. Light effervecence, smouth mouthfeel. Really special when fresh

22 oz bomber. Pours a hazy, faded amber with a white head. Nice smelling citrus and pine hops. Taste was orange rind citrus and sweet malt. Mouthfeel was medium and creamy with a very bitter finish that stays with you for awhile.

sirpsycho (393) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Bottle. Pours a slight amber with an off white head, some lacing. Aroma is hops and grapefruit. Nice creamy, malty sweetness, then you get hit by the bitterness of grapefruit and hops, but not overdone. Nice beer.
