Bottle I believe from eithcubes. Big beastly aroma of orange and bubblegum. Poured a not so appetizing cloudy yellow color. Flavor was rather quick with a bit of caramel and a bitter hop finish. For a straight IPA this is pretty good. kyzr (1551) - Montana, USA - FEB 23, 2008
Thanks to hopdog for the bottle. Color of copper with off-white frothy head. Nose of citrus and sweet fruit. Flavor was hoppy up front with strong notes of pineapple juice. Body is medium with a clean hoppy finish. padrefan98 (854) - (San Diego) Santee, California, USA - FEB 23, 2008
22oz bottle shared by fordest. Nice hoppy flavors and some decent sweetness too. Very good ipa. fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - FEB 22, 2008
22 oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange pour with a nice head. Aromas were sweet hoppy citrus. Flavors moved more to the green and floral, pine like side of the hops. Still some citrus in there though. Very fresh flavor in the hop profile. Very tasty IPA. StefanSD (2451) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 Courtesy of fordest. 650 ml bottle shared with fordest and padrefan. Poured a copper-orange color with a generous white head. The aroma was dominated by sweet citrus and pine. The flavor did not follow the aroma in that the sweetness I picked up in the nose never really materialized in the taste. The taste was very hops forward with grapefruit, oranges, bread and pine. The mouthfeel was medium and complex-- a very satisfying malt quaff. The finish was short and clean with biter hops lingering and then dropping off suddenly. Overall: a superior IPA, I’d drink this every day if I could. Recommended.

bottle - Pours copper with a one finger white head. It smells of hops (duh) with citrus and a touch of pine. The flavor is intensely hopped with enough malt backbone to keep it from being overpowering. It’s full bodied and very full flavored, especially for a regular IPA. Excellent brew.

22oz bottle. Pours a brilliant mostly clear blood orange with a light, frothy off whit head. Spotty lacing was left on the glass. Big time aromas of pine and citrus. The Simcoe hops are really prevalent in bothearoma and flavor. Great bitter finish. inkubus27 (269) - highland, Indiana, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Smells very citrusy... big-time grapefruit and oranges. Actually it smells a lot like Hopslam. Pours a deep copper, with a nice head. Taste is kindof tough. It starts off citrusy, but finishes way too harsh. It drops off where Hopslam finishes.Overall, not bad though, and definitely a good IPA. CP (124) - USA - FEB 16, 2008
Similar to Hopslam, pours a dark red-orange coloration. Slightly hoppy and floral. Good beer but there are better IPAs.
Got so drunk I saw a troll running through some green fields. Oh wait that is just the label. AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - FEB 14, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2008 I think I got this from my 3F hookup mreusch. (Thanks Matt!) Nose is hoppy and pineapple like an IIPA (as I knew it would be!) Color is beautiful copper with a thin halo of an off white head. Flavor is a bit understated, with the nose overwhelming. A bit sweet and bready in the middle, and the finish is dry and just the slightest bit bitter. For an IPA, this is a very good beer. But I have to say, after the aroma, (and from 3F) I expected a bit more flavor. Still nice brew.
