Bottle shared by CaptainCougar. Pours clear orange with an average, frothy white head, medium retention with spotty lacing. Aroma is biscuit and straw malt with grassy, pine, and citrus hops and light fruity esters. Flavor is moderate bitterness with citrus and pine hop flavors, light supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 28, 2011

Pours a light copper with a thin white head. Aroma is gloriously hoppy. Lots of pine and citrus. Taste is similiar but with a nice bit of msltiness showing through. Overall a very nice ipa! Cheers! bp (922) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Draft: pours dark amber with a white head, hoppy aroma and taste. Not a major difference from the EPA to me - a little more hop profile and slightly dryer finish.

Pours a nearly clear amber with a 1 finger, soapy eggshell head. Aroma is full of tropical and citrus fruit notes, lots of mango, pineapple, passion fruit and sweet orange, hints of sweet stone fruit, light toast and caramel with a malt sweetness that seems to stick with you for a while. Flavor is sweet malt, light toast, crystal malt and light caramel. sweet and bitter citrus, more tropical fruit with a bit of a grapefruit bitterness, and almost saccharine sweetness seems to linger, undoubtedly large amounts of Crystal malt are at play. Palate is light to medium bodied with a somewhat syrupy entry, medium, blanketing carbonation and dry finish. Very nice, a little less crystal malt would have made this a fantastic IPA, as it its it is still very good. Strykzone (7307) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Clear and coppery. A decent off white head leaves a layer of sticky lacing. The nose is floral and citrus hops and those key flavors. This could be dry hopped. They are oily and astringent as well as very fresh. The caramel includes a bit of cinnamon. This is quite tasty. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2011
12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. Pours a clear amber with about 1 finger of white head. Lots of little carbonation bubbles fizzing all over the place. Aroma is very hoppy. Citrus and piney notes dominate. Taste is medium-heavy bitter, mostly sprucy hops come through. Light bodied with a creamy yet oily texture, average carbonation with a long bitter finish. Overall, it’s pretty darn good. Decently priced decent beer. I would buy it again. pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle, as pictured. Pours an amber orange with thin head. Pretty cool look to it with all of the little bubbles. Very piney in the small and the taste, which I love. Not too bad overall, very drinkable. dwm1034 (784) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2011
