bottle: pours a clear orange copper colour with a small white head . aroma is mostly grapefruit and and very fresh smelling as if they were just put in. some pine also follows over a slight malt. fllavour is pine and earth hops with a nice combination of sweet malts finishes very piney hop and a good bitter. overall a very nice beer bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2007
this is an excellent IPA. This is good start to finish. Hops everywhere and just the right blend of them. 7 + acl is hidden very well beachbum25 (1092) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2007
12 oz bottle-Pours a golden yellow/orange color w/a slight white head. Fresh crisp hop aroma w/some pine overtones. Has a crisp pine/citrus hop flavor up front, but not offensivly so, has good balance. Traces of spice as well, maybe some orange peel, sugar cane. Long floral hop finish. I’m not a fan of the overhopped IPA’s but this was a good one I would recommend. RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2008 Pours a crisp orange/bronze color with a bright white head that took a while to dissapate. Aroma is huge hops, pine and citrus. This a great balanced taste. I am a big fan of IPA’s and this doesn’t dissapoint at all. Tastes of big time hops, pine, orange, spices. Alcohol is well hidden in this tremendous beer. The hops stay with you for a while. I wish this were available by me all year round. ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Bottle via The_Epeeist, thanks. Pours a clear copper color with a smallish white head. Aroma is, what else, floral hops, citrus and pine. Flavor is huge floral and bitter hops, citrus, pine, light malt backbone. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, crisp, sharp biting bitterness, like daggers to the tongue, semi-dry finish. Wonderful stuff!

On tap. Clear orange amber, white head. Aroma is tangerine, fuzzy kiwi, caramel, wheat. Flavor is tangerine, floral, hops, malt, kiwi. merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAR 2, 2007
Clear, amber orange body topped by a small almond hued head that has good retention and nice lacing. Hop aromas of grapefruit, orange, and pinecone dominate. Medium body with good carbonation. Taste is a delicious blend of soft caramel malt and assertive fruity hops. Ruby red grapefruit, mostly, with notes of cut hay, pine, and orange. Subtle malt presence suggests clover honey. Excellent! npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Big hoppy nose--tons of grapefruit, some pine, and a nice caramel sweetness. Clear copper in color, with a lovely sticky off-white head. Really wonderfully balanced flavor: Tons of those fruity hops, of course, but they’re backed by a nice sweet, but not cloying, malty backbone. Up there with the better double IPAs, for me.
