Deep copper pour with creamy off white head and lace. Medium hop aroma, apples, caramel malt. Semi sweet malt with a nice resiny bitter. Thin and watery with smooth carbonation. ganache (5901) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle. Huge piny hop nose with lots of citrus - big-time PNW scent out of a NY brewery. Very heavily dry hopped. Dark orange pour lets light through, fluffy tan head does not. Taste is surprisingly bitter (on the strong side of IPAs), bone-dry without any resin, and a good mix of pine and caramel. Light soap and light grapefruit/citrus. Fullish body. Place this one squarely into the ’aggressive’ IPA category. notalush (5876) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2003
[bottled] Copper in color, with a respectable white lacing - pine aroma,with a bit of grain - crisp, slightly dry, decent hopping (not sure which hops are used here, but I feel the combination could be pulled off better) - very defined grapefruit flavor - some woody notes in the flavor as well - this needs some more malts to balance out the hoppiness, not so much in the initial flavor, but in the finish (the finish gets a little thin) - a decent IPA, though.

Pours a mahogany body with an off white head. Strong pine and hop resins with a hint of copper. Pine grass and a moderate amount of caramel malt to balance. Strong cloying bitter earthy almost metallic lingering. Wouldn’t drink again. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 24, 2011
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/amber with a thick, lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy hops and light caramel malts. The hops are very strong in this IPA, and it is very grapefruit-like in the finish. Average texture. A nice hoppy IPA.

(Draught) Pours a medium, creamy, beige head and a clear amber body. Pleasant Hi-C hops in the nose and flavour - grapefruit and pine push to the forefront. Good. muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2004
TAP NY sample. Creamy wisp of a head, medium amber color. Low-energy fruity nose, fair amount of unending bitterness throughout..dry and just a bit cardboardy at the finish. Pretty decent. DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle from Ithaca coffee. Pours orange with almost no head. A bit of hoppiness on the nose. Big grapefruit on the tongue but it finishes fairly cleanly. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Thanks to Fatty. Pours a slightly hazy copper amber with an off white fluffy head that left some lacing. Aroma was just a little off at first. Picked up some pine, slight citrus and caramel. Flavor of pine, slight bitterness with some malts to help balance. tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
Butterscotch, butter aromas are strong up front. Orange, floral hops emerge with a moderate cabbagey, creamed corn notes. Off aromas dissipate after some time or the nose becomes acclimated. Deep, burnished copper with thin but lasting cover of off-white head that leaves a slight, sudsy lacing. Vegetal flavour with some oily butter. Strong bitterness and orange-blossom hop flavour with sugary sweet malts. Medium body with fair carbonation is somewhat slick in the mouth. Not unpleasant but not altogether good and definitely not characteristic for style. Bottle (trade - May, 2005) sampled with Olivier_MTL. Thanks, jah noth!
