L - It is orange with golden highlights and cloudy. It it capped with an inch of white head.

S - I get citrus. Orange seems to be most noticeable with some pine.

T - The tastes has orange, alcohol, and pine.

F - Medium

O - It is always interesting to try a single hop beer to gain an understanding in the more complex IPA's.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Dogfish Head pint glass.

The color is a hazy amber/orange with a finger of foamy off-white head and some lacing left on the glass.

The smell is citrus at first with a slight orange aroma that lets a little lemon mix in. There is a slight aroma of wet leaves here and a slight pine does come out in the nose briefly.

The taste is fruity at first with a mellow orange and cantaloupe flavor. The bitterness in this beer has some bite but seems to be mellow as well. A leafy flavor is there at the end with slight pine flavor that arrives after the bitterness passes. There is a juicy fruit flavor that hangs in the aftertaste and is quite pleasurable.

The feel of this is light and really has a great mellow bite. There is a smooth drinkable feel here that just goes down east and the beer disappears quickly. A really great drinker if an IPA.

Got it pretty cheap so it's rather old, but, eh, why not?!
Hazy dark orange, small creamy head that lingers for some time.
There's still some hop on the nose, some grapefruit, faint tropical fruit, but a stronger biscuit and caramel maltiness. A dried up leafy note too.
Grapefruity hops still hold a nice foothold here, a nice bitter-sweet start. Almost lacks the tropical notes, a hint of mango, a bit of tangerine, a nice generically floral honey sweetness too. Really toasted biscuits, a bit grainy too. Light pine resin, but otherwise nice leafy hops with a nice and dry finish, a bit earthy.
Medium body, low carbonation. Malts are a bit too present in the aftertaste, hop bitterness in the back of the throat and some grapefruit peel.
This was probably really good fresh. Still, my grade won't hurt it that much, overall.
