Beautiful copper pour. Frothy head. Aroma of hops and light malt aroma. Tastes starts off lightly sweet of citrus fruits. Finishes with a hop bitterness. MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 14, 2008
12oz thanks beastiefan2k - Now this is what I’m talking about! Aroma is strong pine tar hops with caramel and crystal malts fighting for attention. Pours transparent copper with a small head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma with the piney hops adding a chewy earthy quality in the finish. Palate is sticky and tart. Very tasty if you like hops. zoso3303 (2) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2008 does not count

Copper pour with a frothy off-white head. Pine/grapefruit/floral hop aroma. Flavor initially sharp, marked by pine and grapefruit hops. After a bit it comes across as more orangey with a smooth and even tea-leaf hop bitterness. Nicely put together east coast IPA. abcfan (920) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Pours an amber-orange color with a crisp white head. Nose is a citrus-piney aroma. Taste is totally dominated by hops and is very drinkable. Finishes with a hint of orange and hops. Great brew!

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2008 Pours a clear and bright orange-amber color with a small head that has a tint of rust. Nose of floral and piney hops with honey. Bitter hits you in the face and stays there. A lot of earthy flavors with pine and grapefruit rinds. A little bit of caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. I know my first rating of this said that it wasn’t well balanced, but I think I was in a hop-hating mood the night I drank it. This is beautifully balanced and a really delicious beer. lethe (177) - New York, USA - FEB 12, 2008
Amber-colored pour has an intensely hoppy nose with lively resin and citrus. Palate is smooth with lively carbonation. Flavor is basically a hop showcase with many nice pine and citrus notes. The finish is mouth-puckering and dry in a testament to the ibu level. Somehow this seems balanced and is incredibly drinkable, even though the hops totally dominate. I am glad I sought this one out. danhitch (17) - USA - FEB 11, 2008
Poured a very orange color with a nice slightly off-white head. The smell was very fruity with a bit of alcohol. The taste was very nice. Pineapple and citrus were the first flavors coming through. As the beer warmed up, the malt came through a lot more and had a distinct biscuity taste. Very smooth and delicious beer. I wish it wasn’t so hard to get a hold of! dmtroyer (431) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2008
12oz. Pours orange to copper with a nice white head. This struck me like a glass of orange juice. Good bitter and citrus fruits that do well with acidity and a blast of hops on the finish. Surprisingly drinkable, I could see this being a daily drinker. RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Beautiful copper color. Very cedar-like slightly metallic aroma. Hint of sweetness in the flavor is scrubbed clean with the spicy hop finish.
