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.

Draft @ Bull Finney, Portland , ME, Hazy amber color with nice retention served in a Baxter glass. Nice nose of spruce, bready malt and citrus. Taste is spot on the nose. Meduim body, Really balanced IPA, not going to blow you away with bitterness. Real easy to drink, very tasty.

Can. Pours a light orange color with a thick white frothy head. Nose is fresh piney hops, sticky biscuits, light notes of oranges. Big full mouth with a quick throat bitterness. Palate is sticky as are lips and molars. Flavors of piney citrus hops, sticky biscuit and caramel malt notes.

changeup45 (1715) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Can from BeerPilgrim11. Copper color, this pours with a big clumpy off-white head. Thereís certainly a rich toffee and caramel malt backbone to this with sharp resinous hops as well as some notes of pine. The finish is dry and bitter. Itís a bit too malty and gritty for my liking but is hopped accordingly and is overall a solid beer.

Poured from can into shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with fluffy off-white that dissipates quickly. Aroma of hops and citrus. Hop bitterness, light citrus and pine. Ok.

12oz can. Pours a cloudy amber with a white head. Didnít expect much after having tasted a couple other Baxter brews that were mediocre at best but this one is pretty good. The description of west coast style IPA is fitting. Big hop tastes of citrus and pine. Not bad.

A decent caramel malt flavor. A bit of citrus hops coming through too. An ok IPA

arkurzynski (1460) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Can thanks to sanborn13. Hazy amber-brown with foamy head. Skunky pine and caramel malt. Flavor is moderate pine bitterness followed a solid caramel backbone and light citrus acidity. Jello-like palate that is a bit out of place. Residual caramel sweetness and light citrus.

On tap at Jacob Wirth. Another consumed during my Boston/EBF weekend. Nice hoppy presence with subtle hints of citrus/grapefruit. Not mind blowing but certainly worth a try.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Can courtesy of McGrupp612. Served in a mug. Pours a moderate copper color with a good off-white head and a bit of lacing. The nose carries quite a bit of bready malt and some faint hoppy notes. Not strong enough to really be discernible as to type, but a good combo. Flavor is not up to par. Itís far too malty and too far in the style of an East Coast "IPA." Quotation marks for emphasis. Medium body with a slight bitterness. Decent, but nothing special.
