On tap at Tony’sPlace in Ivyland, Pa ( this place had Celebrator on tap this winter and had no clue it was the best Double Bock in the world! This is a Italian restaurant for Pete’s sake!). Nice foamy white head that lasted a good long time. Pours a nice hazy golden color. Nice nose of hops+ hops + hops... As hoppy as this was, the malt balance was also good. The great pucker of all the hops finsihed with a surprising malt kick then went back to a lingering hop bite that any hop-head would love. No clue in the taste this is 6.6 abv either. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2007
12oz bottle. Hazy golden hue. Big bright orange flavors. Lots of citrus. Big nose. Full bodied with full bitter flavors. Big grapefruit with a nice dry palate. Nice effervescence. Touch of caramel undertone in the malts. Smooth malts then a blast of hop bitterness. Very nice. acearl (510) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2007

Tap at Croxley’s Ale House: Pours a deep golden amber with good clarity and topped by a consistent off white head. Very aromatic. Hoppy, sweet fruityness of peach, citrus notes, nice and bright. Fairly velvety mouthfeel with a good amount of carbonation. Has an assertive hoppyness in the flavor. It’s fairly balanced, yet it could use just a drop more malt in the body to even out the aggressive hops. (And I’m a hop head) Has some peach/apricot esters with a late grapefruity bitterness which is long and dry. An aggressive and enjoyable IPA. Beerio (48) - USA - MAY 2, 2007
This is a complex IPA. There is a shit load of things happening in it. All of the typical IPA tastes are crafted into it well. But there are other great things about this IPA that I am too drunk put my finger on. I am gonna go have sex...Maybe I will review it after again after that.

I like it and I don’t even have a trust fund. A six pack makes me want to play horse polo and join a secret society. Live free or die. ghostmonkey (204) - budd lake, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2007

poured with an average head, had a hard time determining the smell, grapefruit and pine and somewhat flat, crisp citrus/hop taste with good amount of bitter, favorite of the smutty nose beers...keeper Nihon (247) - Vernon, Connecticut, USA - APR 18, 2007
Color of apple juice, aroma of sweet hops flowers. Bittersweet hop flavor, almost floral. Bitterness comes on strong at the end. Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - APR 15, 2007
