Very clear deep amber color, no head. Can smell the alcohol and the hops. Very bitter. Can feel the weaknes compared to the Ruination. Very nice taste, slight alcohol warming at the end. Can definetely see myself buying a sixer of this for a night. yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - MAR 28, 2007
This IPA is a hazy light amber with a fluffy and elastic white head that has great retention. The aroma is hoppy! It is tangerine peel with spruce. It is almost creamy on the tounge. The carbonation is appropriate and it leaves the mouth cleanly. The flavor is dominated by tangerine peel. Bold and bitter! Yes! Grovlam (4249) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2007
Bottle. [Blind tasting session @ Sk8viking] #13 Average fizzy white head that was mostly diminishing. Good lacing. Clear sparkling body with an orange hue. Aroma was flowers, grass, grapefruit, citrus, caramel, licorice. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and a dry texture. Flavor was moderated bitter with licorice and caramel sweetness. Nice dry and slightly licorice sweet finish. Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Pours an orange color with off-white creamy head. Aroma if great with nice amounts of floral and citrus hops and last but not least some malt. Taste is fantastic. Wonderful balance of the hops creating a nice citrus flavor with a modest malt backbone but yet it’s so well balanced. Moderately carbonated it finishes a little dry. An excellent IPA. acearl (510) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2007
UPDATED: APR 10, 2007 Orange peel hue, creamy white head, very fragrent...floral and and citrus tang, DRY texture, lively carbonation, like the Rumination without the steroids, bitter aftertaste that stays with you ffor a while. Gotta love the Stone Brewery!

Pours slightly hazy,, with rich golden color. Impressive citrus flavors with a moderate, yet smooth, bitter finish. This is a very dry beer without almost no sweet taste. An excellent beer. sunevdj (4087) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2007
