COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A heavily-hopped, West Coast-style IPA. Bold, complex flavors with a solid malt backbone and assertive hop profile, along with cold conditioning give this beer its crisp, clean finish.

Can from John - thanks! Orange pour with a smaller white head. Aroma is caramel, cheese, and citrus. Lighter carbonation. Nice brew.

A really good solid APA/ IPA with lovelly aroma and a good hoppy flavour. Perhaps a little on the dry side, but not as much as green head ipa. Would drink this again on draught, not tried in the can. Good with Mardi Gras Pizza and House Salad at Napper Tandy in Roslindale, Boston.

Metalchopz (2402) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
Bought at Shaw’s in Auburn, Maine. Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with a frothy beige head, great retention and dirty lacing. Fruity malt nose with good grassy hops. Same for taste, with some good bitterness in the finish. Beautiful 6-pack of cans with the skull that caught my eye. The beer supports the look.

jbenedix (8) - Greencastle, Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2014 does not count
The real thing. Thick, reddish amber appearance, nice aroma and palate, hoppy bite but without the dry mouth follow-up that some IPAs have. Tastey, great one for the price.

GIJOE (688) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - AUG 10, 2014
On tap say Duffy's In Kennebunk. Pours a mahogany color with a thin, mottled, white head. Nose is citrus hops, predominately grapefruit. Taste is correspondingly bitter. Full bodied brew with moderately lively carbonation. Very nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Suttree (5259) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Trade from Willrunforbeer. Nicely quaffable - mostly hop forward, with notes of pine or spruce, then a subtle but sturdy caramel malt base. Dryish finish. I’d drink a lot of it if I could get it here.

Pillowy white head. Deep amber color. Heavy hop aroma. Taste is dominatedby the hops but does have a strong malt backbone. Has a clean hop finish. Well done Baxter Brewing!

czar (4679) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2014
can. pours hazy bright golden with a small creamy beige-orange head showing some retention and lacing. spicy citrus, almost juicy mangoes, soft pine needles, doughy caramel - never overwhelming, hint of honeyed sweetness, tasty red fruitiness, pepper, herbal tea, hint of mint and coconut - pina colada-ish. moderately low carbonation, light to medium body - oily, assertive and almost balanced citrusy-piney-spicy finish. oddly unappreciated (or underappreciated) by zee community. i enjoyed it.

Bière limpide, bien cuivrée et couverte d’un épais col mousseux laissant au verre une dense dentelle. Au nez, des malts caramel et un intense houblonnage aux accents de conifères. Elle est bien amère, peu acide et pratiquement sans sucre résiduel. Elle est lisse, de corps léger/moyen, bien effervescente et se termine sur une amertume tranchante et des arômes bien assortis à celle-ci.
