Tap at Triumph. Probably my least favorite of the samples. It pours a clear, light orange with a rocky, off-white head that has very good sheety lace. Aroma is candy, melons, tropical hops. Taste is sweet, a bit syrupy, medicinal, rich in herbal hops, resinous hops. Decent. drfabulous (7941) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Draught at Philadelphia brewpub. Nice floral aroma. Well balanced IPA with some hint of alcohol. Malts. Hops flavor and don’t dominate. Well done. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2010
On tap, Philly location. Pours a dark copper, clear, with a small beige head. The nose is big and bright with citrusy hops and a caramel malt base. The flavor is nicely bitter and citrusy with some caramel malt forming the backbone, but mostly staying out of the way of the hops. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation, a little resiny stickiness. Really nice beer, easily the pick of the litter on the day that I visited.

Tap at Princeton. Nice clear dark amber, thin head. Aroma is loaded with citrusy hops, some pine, grapfruit and has that amarrillo hop quality to it- almost orangy mango-like. Fruity flavor with tons of hops and backed by a good amount of malt- caramel and some chocolate. Pretty nice overall. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 18, 2009
10th rating time to make this one official. Tap at Philly location, I got lucky, while I was there they switched out the IPA after I had it, for this, which I liked way way more. Pours rich orange with 2 finger tan head. Nose is big brite piney resiny hops. Taste is sweet, hoppy resin, citrus this is a damn good east coast DIPA.

The aroma is smooth with citrus and hops dominating. The color is deep amber clear with a small head. The flavor of bittering hops gradually comes in and takes over, but not biting or overbearing. keepersj12 (3117) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2010

03.14.06 Tap at Princeton BP. This must have been a big hit last year because it ran out quickly then and, despite it being their 10th anniversary beer, they’ve made it again. I’m glad I finally got to try the stuff; I was bummed to have missed it in 2005.
The beer is dark amber-burnished copper, with a small but lingering whtie head that leaves a sticky bit of lace. Aroma is simple and fruity with a dose of canned pears, golden raisins soaked in water, and an early visit to the pastry shop. Spicy stuff, peppery and biting on the tongue yet with a full body, creamy. Pretty plain across the palate, but solid, firm, and seemingly headed on a true course. The beer at first doesn’t impress, but midway through the glass, it’s clear that the brewer had a direction in mind with this beer - to honor their flagship Bengal Gold IPA, not overshadow it. Indeed, it’s wildly reminiscent of the Bengal Gold, certainly not one of my own favorites, while often considered a solid beer in its own right. This one would be a good replacement for that beer, with nice balance, mild fruits and spice, and a nice little alcohol bite. My feelings are mixed.
