Can thanks to mreusch. Pours a slightly cloudy dark amber with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops and grapefruit. Flavor of citrus, sour grapefruit, lemons, iced tea, grassy hops. An alright IPA but somewhat one dimensional. Doesnt make the great IPA cut for me.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2009 Can. Aroma grassy, citrusy, grapefruity, with ample sweet malt behind. Flavor the same, lots of both the sweet malt and the grassy hop character with citrus in there as well, very dry-feeling hops, not very oily/resiny. Very good, though the combined components of heavy grass and big, sweet malt were somehow just a bit off for me. 7-4-7-4-14/3.6mcox90 (2161) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 1, 2008
Rerate from tap at ACBF. Aroma of grass, grapefruit, mango, awesomeness. Flavor continues on the tropical path with high bitterness and fluffy, sweet malt. Very good.
Pint can courtesy of theisti. Pours a gorgeous hazy red/orange color with a small receding white head. Huge citrus hop nose. Intense grapefruit flavor up front balanced with a nice malt middle. Then finishes with more bitter hop bite. Very good. Wish it were available in New England. DalzAle (2040) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Poured a nice hazy orange color into a frosty pint glass with no head. Aroma was incredibly hoppy and slightly citrusy and pulled me right in. Flavor was woody and assaults the palate with hops. One of my personal favorite IPA’s.

Have sampled many places from Minn. to Il. and now have gotten around to finally rating what, I believe, was first commercially described as a strong pale ale. On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. A deep amber/orange color, with a medium, off white, reducing head,& clingy lace. Aroma is tangerine, pineapple,& tads of other citrus. Resin, more citrus, malty sweetness, & a strong but pleasant hop dryness continue in the flavor to the end and beyond. One of my hop favorites since it’s inception. Has stayed very consistent since my first sampling in Minnesota. ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Pours a very pretty somewhat dark orange/red with a thick foamy 1 inch head. Smells of intense fresh citrusy hops dominated the nose. First sip is all hop bitterness that is matched by a just strong enough malt backbone providing an excellent mouthfeel. Very hearty, very clean, very robust. Nice. noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Aroma of grapefruit and other fruit juices. Dark clear red, big beige head, abundant lace. Lots of coniferous and citrus hops, rounded out by some vanilla in the finish. Nice hop burn on the palate, albeit a little thin-bodied. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - NOV 20, 2008
A superb IPA with plenty of grass and citrus flavor. A long-lasting malty finish. Yummm. jeffwilliams11 (310) - hooterville, Michigan, USA - NOV 19, 2008
gotta love microbrew in a can. pours amber with almost no head. fairly mild beer for all its talk of hops. very drinkable, mildly sweet. some citrus hops in the background, not overpowering though.
