Very unique IPA Iíd love to smell this beer all day...unreal hop aroma. Very rich and thick caramel...thats why its unique...most IPAs I have had have been very dry and thin with high alcohol. This one is extremely malty and thick.

Bomber. Thanks Bro! This is why Iím becoming a big hop head. I love great IPAs like this. Poured a great copper color with a creamy off-white head that diminished to a ring over time but left excellent lacing. Big IPA aroma of grapefruit and pine. The flavor found grapefruit citrus, pine, orange, and a light malt background of butterscotch and chocolate. Medium body and dry but smooth. Awesome bitterness.

Bottled. This IPA has a fruity hoppy aroma to it. The taste is almost sweet for just a moment, but finishes bitter. I donít normally care for the bitterness, but this is such a quality beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Dark honey color, hazy (yeast floaties), large offwhite head that is creamy//fluffy and a bit lumpy. Body is sparkling. Lace is in rings, also in sheets, is quite generous and head is fully lasting. Aroma is honeycomb, floral, orange, pine and sweet dough. Body is medium to full with light, soft carbonation and a semi-dry finish. Flavor is honeycomb, flowers, touch of light honey, strong pine aftertaste with a light alcohol presence proving some warmth. Honey-floral is throughout. Not very sweet, pretty bitter and well blended flavor. Nothing super exciting except the appearance, but this beer is really well done. Thoroughly enjoyed.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2007 22 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquor - Pours a very slightly hazy amber color with a nice tight one finger thick off white head that lasts. Lots of citrus and pine hop aroma. Lots of hop flavor that lingers. Not much malt, but thats OK. Slight alcohol warming. Palate is a little thin. Medium body. An excellent beer.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2007 Um, not much to say about this one except that it probably should replace sierra nevada as the quintessential ipa. I mean these guys nailed it. The hops are perfectly balanced and donít kill you with their aromas or flavors. Great beer to drink. Glad I had a chance to try this one. Thanks to dhlesq. Very floral aromas. Very bitter, citrusy tastes.

Bottle. 22oz. Pours a deeper golden color with a regular head. Strong scents of hops on the nose. Flavors of hops (of course) caramel and butterscotch and maybe some apple cider. Malts and hops are pretty balanced in this brew, but hops win. Thanks Flaco Alto !
