(12oz bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a small off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, orange, mango, and caramel. Flavor of hops (pineapple, grass, pine, earth) and caramel malt.

Pours a clear yellow with a hoppy aroma. Taste like your typical IPA . Overall I’d drink it again but it was nothing special.

Refreshing. Mild hops taste but not much of a finish. Definitely a lighter side of the IPA, but still pleasing when thirsty.

possumjc (149) - Charleston - Mt Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours clear golder color with a white head. Strong citrus and hop aroma. Mild hops flavor. Kinda watery (maybe because I just had a Hercules Imperial IPA?). I’ll check back on this one but not my favorite IPA at this moment. Maybe my palate needs cleansing!

mcox90 (2159) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - APR 27, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a yellow color with a slight amber hue. Also, a 1/4" white and very spotty lacing. Nose is citrus hops and grass. Thin, crisp body with a fair amount of carbonation. Flavor is citrus hops, a slight lemony taste, with a faint malt background. Hop flavor is on the mild side. Very sessionable. This is gonna be a great summertime beer and my wife loves it too!

Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 26, 2009
Pours a clear yellow with a hoppy aroma. Taste like your typical IPA with mild bitterness. Overall I’d drink it again but it was nothing special.

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - APR 23, 2009
Poured from the tap into a tasting glass. The color is a clear gold with a thin white head. The smell is citrus at first, hints of grapefruit and lemon. Some hop flavor in the background. The Taste is of citrus and floral hops that seem a bit muted. There seems to be a slight touch of malt as well. This IPA is a decent beer that is pretty well balanced and easy drinking. Not quite the full hop character that I enjoy in an IPA but still a good beer.

3.2
Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2009
Draft at multiple devils games and bottle offerings as well. Pours a golden orange body with a white head. Some light citrus and hop resins, with some malty etoh in the background of things. The colder the serving temperature the better this one is.
