COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA uses Columbus, Chinook, and Cascade hops, and is further dry hopped with Magnum and Willamette. 2-Row Pale, Vienna and Crystal malts balance nicely, resulting in a bright, citrus forward flavor.

Draft. Pours a darker golden color, thin tan head. One of the better aromas in my opinion, really enjoyed it - floral, grass, pine, citrus, and touch of berry. Medium sweet flavor. Medium body, average carb, medium bitter hop finish. Best offering from Aviator with this well-round IPA.

Shared bomber to snifter (thanks Ray). Looks solid; a semi-transparent orange with off-white head. Smells of bitter hops and malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle:   Somewhat of a dirty orangish golden with sediment floating about, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Pithy nose, a little dank and musty.   Pith and orange peel on the tongue.   Not bitter, not too sweet, very much middle of the road.   Slight pixie stix like presense.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not very bright on the tongue.   Seems like a hefty Pale Ale, or perhaps a 3/4 IPA.   Enjoyable, but lacks any ZING.   Lingering citrus peel and pithiness on the tongue.   Thanks for the bottle Jeff!

Fruity and citrusy aroma. Amber with tons of sediment, small head. Long bitter finish, bottle from bestway

bubbleflubber (1853) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Pours an orange-amber into the glass, with a soapy 3-finger head that leaves window-wash lacing down the glass. The nose is caramel, toffee, citrus and some light floral notes. Flavors are of toffee, biscuit flour, tart citrus and bitters. The elongated finish is biscuity, of dry flour and woody earth. The body is medium with an active mouthfeel. Decent IPA here, substantive and very drinkable.

22 ounce from Bruisin Ales. Nice orange ish color. Solid carbonation. Hoppy and clean. Slight fruit flavor produced by yeast. Bit of malt.

Had this one on-tap at Red Robin in Mooresville. Spent a day on the lake and needed some red meat and beer close it out. Glad to see this one on tap in the midst of below-average beer. Came out poured-to-the-brim a deep orange/gold. The nose was ripe with fresh hops. Carried with it a mild toasted finish. Moderate-to-full feel. Carbed up well. Hops are king in this one. Bitter goodness, with a subtle sweet kiss, takes over. Peppery and spicy as well. I’ve got to take a bite of burger to calm my tastebuds down after sipping this one. A really bitter one here. I like it. Not the most refreshing IPA out there, but this gets it done. Nice work, Aviator.

maxwelldeux (3794) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2012
I think this is a pretty reasonable IPA, but nothing remarkable. Pours a darker golden color with a moderate white head. Good level of hoppiness to it, but not too much. Easy drink.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Tap at Milltown. Light cloudy golden with light white lace. Nose is pretty nice-light tropics, citrus, mango, guava, light grass, some Light cotton candy. Flavor is very bitter, grassy, very waxy, dry and astringent. Really like that nose- this is good to see from Avaiator.
