rougeau13 (2902) - Richmond, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2012 Slightly hazy amber with a lacing whitish head. Smells of floral hops, pine, caramel malt, and citrus fruit. Beautiful blend of heavy floral hop, malt and bitter grapefruit and pine tastes. Medium body, dry. Excellent IPA.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - OCT 10, 2010
Aroma has pine, grape, citrus, its rather west coast, and quite a malt body too. Taste is hop dominated with pine, grape and some citrus too, lots of caramel and bready malts too, bisquity, almost alcoholic, in spite of only 7.2%. Pleasant carbonation and a very bitter finish.

spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 6, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Woodmans Madison. Ar: The aroma is not as assertive as I expected it to be, but otherwise quite nice. Its mostly dominated by floral hops with a pine hop background. Theres also a slightly strange earthy/metallic funk note that I dont remember from my previous tastings. Ap: Pours a medium, slightly hazy amber/copper with a 1" pillowy cream head. T: Mild malt sweetness on the nose, nicely pronounced hop bitterness on the finish. Again, there is a somewhat metallic note that is a bit off-putting. P: Medium body, somewhat light carbonation. O: This was a bit off, which I dont remember from previous times Ive had this beer. Ill have to rate this again in the future.

Onionkid (376) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 4, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 Bottle. Bought a six-pack of these and Im in love! Orange color with a beige head. Aroma is hoppy...orange and grapefruit. Taste is sweet at first, with various bitter hints of grapefruit and orange zest to finish it off. Leaves a bit of a bitter aftertaste in the back of your mouth which I enjoy. Can also taste hints of caramel and bread. Depending on what Im eating with it, I think the alcohol can stand out a bit too much at times, but for the most part if Im just drinking for fun its perfectly fine. The body of the beer is kind of oily, with a decent mouthfeel. Really enjoy this IPA, probably one of my favorites thats easy to find around here! 7.2% alcohol.
