mcberko (16622) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2010
22 oz. bottle, pours clear (for an IPA) golden with a small white head. Aroma of subtle hops, grass and citrus. Solid hops flavour with a grass backbone. Decent IPA - certainly nothing special.

jtclockwork (15950) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Bottle just said India Pale Ale. I think it’s the same beer as this. Cloudy IPA. Aroma is strong citrus and grass. Taste is crisp bitter hops with dryish finish. Rated 8/27/02

bhensonb (14893) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 27, 2006
Piney plus aroma. Not sure what the floral is.Hazy golden amber color with persistent lacing. Grapefruit fibre. Swishing thickens the texture. Very fresh. Bitter, astringent finish. Good IBUs. Puckers the mouth, lingers on the tongue. It’s underrated so far. So I’ll up the average. It’s worthy. And it goes well with salmon!

Ferris (14387) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2012
Draft - Mild nose with fruity citrus hops. Clear gold with thick persistent head. Punch of bitterness and grapefruit hops. A long but entirely unpleasant finish. The mild nose masks the strength but a decent IPA.

Bottle poured a clear copper with a small short lived off white head. Aromas of pine, earthiness, and a bit of carmel. Palate was light and a bit resiny. Flavors of bitterness, some pine, and a hint of carmel with a dry, bitter finish.

djd07 (13702) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy light copper color with a small white head. A lot of fizz and carbonation with this one. The aroma was floral and citrus. Nice lacing that diminshed quickly. The taste is smooth with a nice hoppy bite and bitter finish. A great IPA.
