LadySusan (716) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2009
On tap at The Alchemist. The color is a hazy honey with a beige head. It has a nice aroma of hops and citrus fruits. The taste is also of hops and citrus fruits. This is a perfect example of an I.P.A.The finish is that good bitter taste in your mouth

lefossoyeur (430) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2010
Golden blonde with a nice white head. Lots of citrus and resinous hops with a long bitter finale. very thirst question. Personnaly one of the best session IPA I’ve had in my life. And at 5,2% it’s more than welcomed.

bobman006 (326) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Tap. Hazy orange-gold with foamy off-white head. Aroma is herbal with grass, rose, pepper, chamomile and citrus. Flavors of grain, citrus, pine, chocolate milk, chamomile and rose. Slightly tannic. Astringent hop bite. Medium body with a full mouthfeel. Unique. Like a super-hopped ESB.

Pwn3d (1961) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2009
On tap at the brewpub in Waterbury VT. A solid ipa with rich hop tang flavors. Altho not as good as el jefe, but awesome.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Draft at brewpub. Mild citrus aroma. Hazy orange body, off-white head. Flavor is bitter grapefruit, with a bitter finish. Nice core, but little complexity or balance.

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2009
Amber hazy beer. This head with a sticky white lacing. Very, very hoppy aroma. Pine and light citrusy grapefruit resinousness. Bright and fresh and bracing, like sucking on pine cones and grapefruit peels. There is also a little touch of orange peel as well. Very lean pale maltiness that just stands aside and lets the hops work their magic. This is like a little taste of the Northwest here in the Northeast.

TonyDiUlio (643) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Had this beer as part of Beer Quest 2010 with the guys. This was beer number 34. Pours a medium gold. Aroma is full of hops and grapefruit. Well balanced flavor. What you would expect from an IPA, bitter hops are controlling.
