Pours a darkish amber with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is loaded with citrus and pine, crusty white bread, bread dough, caramel, toast and light mineral notes. Flavor is big on toast and some ceral grain up front, then some mineral notes, fruity yeast, honey and floral hops. Citrus and pine hops wash over everything, surprisingly late in the game, in a good way, leaving a citrus, mineral and bitter hop finish. Palate is nicely light to medium and mostly crisp and clean, though there is a lightly oily feel in the middle and end along with a fairly light, but blanketing and a little sharp carbonation, which fits this beer really well. Nice IPA overall. BeerSquare (117) - - MAY 17, 2012
I love this IPA-- for one that is big and spicy, but not too heavy or syrupy, this vies with Green Flash’s West Coast to be my favorite. . . and wins every time.
What I like most about it is the combination of a relatively aggressive, but still well behaved carbonation with the sharp hops flavor that is only a degree or two short of "maximum tartness."
Also, when I pour it, people regularly comment about the nice color and amazing floral aroma.
Great beer. I’m not sure what would make it better, which is a rare feeling for me. PD4Ever (109) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 15, 2012
12oz can dated best by 6/13/12 poured into tulip glass.
Aroma: tons of floral hops, huge malt backbone and sweetness coming through. peaches and mangos. this smells amazing.
Appearance: literally no head and no bubbles rising. amber orange color
Taste: medium sweet and mild bitter. pretty bland
Palate: finish is medium bitter, mild sour, mild sweet. carbonation is very weak. mouthfeel is thin. strange bitterness remains in your mouth and throat.
Overall: When i smelled this i thought it was going to be great but the taste let me down and the aftertaste and mouthfeel were a real turn off. I wont pick this up again.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 The rating below is for the tap version, but after trying the canned version, this beer will get his score increased from 3.1 to 3.9. The canned version is so bold and flavorful, with an amazing malty backbone, almost like a good DIPA.
On tap at Euston Tap, London. Pours a clear copper colour with a minimal white head. Short lived foam. Aroma is hoppy on a malty base. Pine, grass and caramel. Taste is similarly balanced, with slight bitterness over a malty layer. Medium mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Overall, not bad by any mean, but certainly not something I’ll remember forever.

Flowery, hoppy smell. Copper colour. Aroma of flowers, leaves, earth. Surprisingly fresh for that alcohol content. Long citric finish. GTAEgeek (2183) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2016 12 oz. can. Pours gold, with a medium, off-white head. The aroma is pine, floral hops, orange, and caramel. The flavor is nicely bitter, and lightly sweet. The palate is medium, astringent, and a little watery. Overall, a nice, balanced, fruity IPA. kermis (12869) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2012
