Can poured into pub glass. Pour is deep amber with frothy white head. Aromas of piney hops, resin, slight fruit, and some citrus. Flavor is crisp and finishes somewhat dry. Resin, piney hops, and malt are throughout. Very nice for an IPA. kiefdog (1827) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2009

Flavor is sweet and floral with notes of citrus, honey, caramel, floral hops. Generally light to medium body with a hoppy finish. SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Can: Poured a orange with white head. Aroma is malty and hops. Taste is tongue lashing citrus and hops that mixed well with the malts. rabba9 (115) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2009

Flavor: Citrus and Pine
Palate: Smooth, Bitter
Overall Impression: The pine and citrus flavor is very prevalant in this IPA. I enjoy the citrus flavor but the finish is a tad too much pine and bitterness.
A hazy dark copper orange ale with a thick frothy creamy light moka head. A wonderful hops aroma, resinous, with citrus and marmelade notes, some caramel. Wow! In mouth, a light malt with good citrusy c-hops, a bit lighter than expected from aroma. An excellent IPA. Gift from Piscator. Tasted with Probstk, May 26 2007.

Can. Opens with hardly a sound, no pfftt ? No carbonation ? Pours an amber with an off-white head that I forced to produce, didn’t stick around long. Aroma is citrus and pine. Flavor lacks the intensity of the aroma, subdued cirtus and pine, malt shows through more. No carbonation and just slightly bitter on the finish.

Fuck yea. This beer rocks, the best tall can I’ve ever had. Pours reddish orange color with a ton of egg shelled colored head. There was a serious blast of pine and citrus when I cracked the can. Taste was hoppy and fresh with a nice aftertaste. Was not dry like some IPA’s but very smooth and wet. Extremely refreshing brew, I wish I could pick this one up everyweekend. One of the best session beers out there. MrChopin (4305) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Thanks to lb4lb for the bottle! timbeer (69) - Rosemount, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Dark amber with a fluffy white head. Nose has some caramel, major pine, and orange. Flavor is similar, a little more malt and bread yet also more citrus to keep the balance. Moderate palate but where is the carbonation??... just kind of falls flat. Good beer, nice balance, but it’s not a top tier IPA.
On tap, in a can, and tea-bagged. Pours a clear amber with a nose that is just plain hops. Simcoe and Amarillo hops mix to bring a blend of citris and pine. Caramel flavors but not too sweet and just plain hoppy. A smooth bitterness on the tongue that lasts for a while. One of my favorite beers. Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 21, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2009 16 oz can brought back from Minnesota by my dear friend Kathy. Pours a dark amber with a one finger white head. Interesting melange of hop aromas, some flowers, some grapefruit and a nice pine bite at the end. Hefty orange flavor with some lemon, grapefruit and pineapple behind it and a pine snap in the finish. The flavors linger for ages after the can is gone, which is good since I ran out of the stuff!
