A: The pour is a nice amber color with a finger worth of tan head that recedes to a thin layer which sticks to the glass.
S: The nose has plenty of grapefruit hops along with some oranges. There’s a subtle pine and some bready and caramel malt behind it.
T: The citrus flavors are mild with the beer leaning more toward the bread up front. The finish has some grapefruit along with a light pine.
M: The body is medium with a somewhat low, smooth carbonation.
D: The nose was much better than the flavors, but they are fairly unoffensive. Not an outstanding IPA, but certainly drinkable. j12601 (13033) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium sized white head. Nice citrus and a little malt, touches of oxidization. Medium bodied, much more empty than expected, seems as if everything has fallen out, oxidized and dull. Finishes with a little bit of bitterness. Not impressed. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2010
12oz bottle shared courtesy of TomDecapolis. Poured a medium and lightly hazy amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of floral hops, citrus, and pine. Tastes of floral hops, citrus, pine, and had a spicy finish. jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2015
on tap-offwhite retaining head with gold/copper color. A-pine, bready lt malt. T-follows. Some drying. hopscotch (11181) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2010
Draft… Mildly hazy orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The floral, citrusy, resiny bouquet is pretty restrained, but darn nice nonetheless. A little biscuit in there too. Medium to full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and biting carbonation. Biscuit and toffee malts provide the backbone upon which medium bitter, tannic and citrusy bitterness flourishes. Bittersweet finish… the sweetness quickly disappears, but the bitterness hangs out a good while.

Draft at Craft Ale House. Pours chill hazy deep coppery orange with off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, tangerine, toffee. Tastes malty up front, with hops, tangerine, orange, and some bready notes. Slightly astringent and more resiny as it warms. Another solid beer from Dan Weirbach. sebletitje (10285) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2010

Bottle. Golden orange pour with tan head. chewy grassy citrus aroma. flavor is very dank, grassy notes take over this ipa. egajdzis (6693) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2010
Amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus fruits, caramel malts, toast, and grass. Taste of citrus fruits, pine, grapefruit, caramel malts, and a dry, bitter hop finish. dmac (6429) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2010
12 oz bottle generously given to me by pineypower, thanks Dean. Pours a cloudy orange with an average siezed frothy white head. Aroma is very fruity with lots of citrus and tropical fruits, apricot, peach, mango, pink grapefruit, grains and a slight touch of pine resin. The body is medium to fuller with a slight creamy mouth feel and strong carbonation. Flavor isn’t quite as good as the aroma with lots of fruitiness coming through, more troical then citrus, peach and apricot, grains and a slight metallic note in the middle before a bitter grassy finish. Solid effort for my hundredwhatever IPA rating.
