Deep amber/copper. Nose of dank citrus and mild pine with thick caramel malt. Flavor is well balanced with caramel lemon and orange that trails out to solid piney citrus. Nice all around. SDalkoholic (2393) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Bottle from Best Damn Beer Shop: Poured a dirty golden blonde color with a thin layer of frothy head across the top. In the aroma, my nose detects a bold aroma of citrus trees and leaves with priority towards orange and grapefruit, however, a sweet scent of peace in the background. The flavor is overly bitter with a heavy dosage of oily green hops that give off a strong taste of spice and artificial citrus flavors. For sure a palate and taste bud puckering IPA.

Nice big hoppy aroma when the cap is popped. Primarily a peppery bitterness that lingers for a bit before departing. I was halfway done before I’d even realized it. Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle, smell is a bit grassy and straw, taste is a bit grassy and also a bit citrus, a nice bitterness and really quite nice.

Aroma of hops and grassiness. Light and crisp, full of hops. Citrus zest, a touch of malt, spice, and earthiness. A bit buttery in the finish. Some flavors remind me of an ESB. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Poured a medium orange with a fluffy, lively head. Soft nose go grassy hops. Pleasant in the mouth with nice malt balancing the hops. troopie (2341) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Bottle. I will definitely be looking for this in the future Orange with thick white head. Resiny and piney hop aroma. Full bodied floral flavour with a good chewiness. Hoppy finish. illidurit (2340) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Backlog purge. On tap at Standard Pour in Sonora. Gold pour. Heavy biscuity malt palate, not sweet just heavy, with heaps of acidic grapefruit. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 On tap in DC at Kramerbooks Cafe. Cloudy amber pour. Nose holds decent grapefruit, lemon, pine, and earthy hop on the nose, but the flavor tastes too oxidized, with heavy malt presence. Unfortunate, really not impressed.
Rerate- draft at Churchkey. Much better, with more lean west coast style hop bitterness with pine sap and touches of white grapefruit. A definite improvement, less oxidation this time around.
