A really fantastic full flavored IPA. This is so balanced. The aroma is super herbal and hoppy. Tons of citrus. Same with the taste...with a really nice and sweet malt backbone. Palate is perfect and this finished dry and balanced. BALANCED! Its alittle pale yellowish with haze....I love those IPA that are bright orange and clear. A wonderful brew.

Pours orangish amber with white head. Strong citrus and pine hops. Taste is hoppy with caramel and tofee notes. Excellent malt presense that is not to overwhelming.

Thanks kmweaver for sharing this bomber: Tremendous resin and orange notes in hop aroma exponentially increased in hop flavor. I suspect a touch of crystal malt supplements the lean base malt profile. There is a curious drying note in finish that I find leans toward solvent warmth, yet my knowing informal tasting partner kmweaver calls ’slightly vinous’. This may be balancing, or possibly a mark off (most prominent as beer warms). Amazing hop schedule-- is it simcoe/amarillo?

Pours light amber with large white/tan head out of can. Tropical fruit aroma with hint of hops and citrus. Great hop flavor with finish of citrus. Excellent beer!

Great beer. Aroma is strong in hops, fruit, and sweetness. The appearance is a clear light orange. Taste is complex with hops, fruit, bitter, then a bit of a sweet finish.

Good IPA that I have wanted to try for a while. Date says drink by August 2013. Aroma is of grapfruit, pine, grass, alcohol burn, and slight malt. Taste is somewhat transparent to the aroma, although toned down a little bit. Not bad, but for the price here in Ohio, I can find better, fresher IPA’s.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
With Larry. Pours paler than typical IPA...almost a cross between between a typical IPA and a pilsener. Great nose -floral, pine, citrus. Taste has citrus and caramel malts up front - but a muted hop finish. Great except the finish.

From San Diego. Bright translucent orange-copper with small watery white head. Lots of fruit in the smell - mango, pineapple, citrus. Tastes of fruity bitter hop and malt with a long slightly spicy finish. More malt and less hop than I expected. Body is crisp but juicy. Not very big and quite malty for an IPA but still very tasty.
