Aroma of grapefruit zest and hints of floral. Pours light orange with a tall frothy head. Tastes nice and bitter. Grapefruit, grass and a slight ripe pine. Great IPA. SuIIy (1984) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a small off white head. Nose is a sweet resiny hop note with a light apricot. Palate is big bitterness, tongue lashing, with a dry finish. Flavor is light fruity sticky notes, resiny hop, sweet sugary hints. hombrepalo (1972) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Pint at Fountainheads. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, caramel malts, and a little spiciness. Flavor the same, with enough hops to make me feel like it’s an IPA. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer. zgaier (1968) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Can. Pours a clear orange gold with a white head and aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste is bitter up front, nice citrus, pine, hops, grapefruit notes with some caramel leading to a very bitter, dry finish. Enjoyable IPA MacBoost (1962) - Victor, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2013
pours a clear amber with a just off white head. Aromas of some baby diapers and cat piss. Taste is bitter with some sweetness as well. Pretty well balanced... the hopiness is completely inline with the sweet bready malt. the malt is fat (stole that line from pinkie). finishes pretty spicy with a small hop bite and some residual sugar. pretty ok.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2017 Citrus aroma in an amber pour. Hop forward balance with a sweet fruity caramel body and crisp clean finish. Touches all the IPA bases for sure. GAManiac (1946) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 29, 2012
This is a really attractive pour - a crystal clear golden amber with a thick creamy beige head that leaves a soapy cap and delicate lacing on the sides.
Aroma is a mixture of light sweet citrus and floral notes. There is some pineapple and mango with some lemongrass and pine resin. The malts are also present with a light doughy bread character.
Taste is less citrusy than the aroma, though there is a hoppy bitterness up front. It just doesn’t take on much citrus flavor. The malts are more prevalent than in the aroma and there is caramel malts and some toasted bread in the background. The finish is bitter with pine resin lingering with some alcohol burn.
Mouthfeel is lively with strong carbonation and spritzy and bitter in the finish.
This is a decent IPA but the bitterness is a little too much considering the lack of underlying hop flavors. OK. kathouse (1942) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Beautiful golden amber with a thick head. Lots of lacings. Pine and caramel aromas with bright citrus notes. Caramel body with moderate hop flavors and bitterness. Bitterness lasts thru the finish. hman43 (1898) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2015
It pours dark golden with orange tinges and a full white head that leaves plenty of lacing. It has citrus aromas with hints of pine and lemon. The flavors are a piney, citrus combination with a moderate bitter bite on the palate.
