Sampler flight on tap at the brewery (Las Vegas, NV). Pours a nice decent hazed amber gold hue, touches of frothy whitish head ring ok. Some orange and amber glow throughout, gentle lacing. Aromas show some nice grapefruit, florals, and grass. Gentle lemon, touch of gumball. Some mellow bready sweetness. Really nice nose even through some cigarette smoke. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, nice juicy grapefruit juice and rind. Some lemon, florals, firm bitterness hits the palate. Bigger citrus element, some bread, gentle resiny hops. Touches of orange, bitter florals. A touch resiny. Middle is firmly hoppy and dry, some good bitterness, florals, and dry hoppy elements. Backend keeps on with dry and bitter qualities, some florals, gentle pine, still a grapefruit forward hop profile. Quite lovely. Really nice. Braudog (6900) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle. Golden and lightly frothy, this carries more of a malty character than I’d expect. There’s a little bit of an oily topping in here, but overall, I think most beer snobs expecting an American IPA would find this a bit restrained. That said, it’s quite clean and well made, and frankly, everyone calls just about anything an IPA these days.

Can. Pours mostly clear gold. Aroma and flavor are pale, toasted, and light caramel malts along with some floral, grassy, and piney hops. Minimal bitterness for the style giving it a slightly sweet and malty profile. Medium body. mkel07 (6546) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2012
Draught at the Pub at Monte Carlo in Las Vegas. A great beer from a local Las Vegas brewery. This beer overdosed on hops and carries a big hoppy aroma and flavour. On the palate it was thick and seemed to coat the tongue. Bronzed amber in colour with some patches of light sand colour foam. dwyerpg (6496) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 18, 2009
Bartender said this was to become one of the new regular beers. A light citrus aroma. This is pretty good. A hop bite that grows strongest in the middle. Very yellow in color. This isn’t a mellow IPA but it isn’t wimpy at any point either. Liking it.

650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that had some nice retention and settled to leave only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and passionfruit with some spicy hops and caramel. Taste is a bold grapefruit bitterness with some passionfruit and caramel malt sweetness with a light spicy hop bitterness in the finish. A very nice IPA styled brew that was just a little unbalanced for my tastes. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Golden pour with creamy white head and lace. Full citrus aroma. Full semi sweet maltiness with a nice hard bitter. Good carbonation from a medium bodied beer. The best beer so far here by far for me. snoworsummer (6274) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2017
From a can. Pours hazy gold with a bubbly off white head. Tastes like bready malt, pine hops, musky straw, and caramel. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Faint aroma of bready malt, pine hops, and caramel. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2010
