On draft at City Beer. It pours cloudy orange with an orangy head. The aroma is malty with some caramel toffee and very fruity hop character. Mostly apricots and peaches. It does have a rather spicy bitter finish, but I was disappointed by the lack of hop flavor and aroma compared to their other IPA’s.

Full bodied golden 2XIPA which filled out the goblet well. Aroma of pine and biscuit malt, full bodied with some caramel and sweet malts. Had a UK feel to it and not exactly "EXTREME!".

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Haymarket. Pretty underwhelming, this one. Pours a deep gold, towards copper with a sticky head. The nose is fruity with some strong pine notes and caramel permeating. On taste, intensely bitter and dry but then the caramel rolls across the palate, muddying the waters. A lot more of the pine cone notes. Just not really a great beer. I think the hops and caramel malts are the culprit here. Meh.

On tap at the Pourhouse in Westmont, NJ. Slightly hazy light mahogany with a rich dusky tan head. Big West Coast citrusy hop aroma punch. Flavor of grapefruit and orange peel with toasted malt, caramel and milk chocolate. Strong malt backbone. Full bodied texture and a dry, bitter, warming finish.

draft... light orange, medium clarity, great head, toppe, really creamy, great lacing... the nose is very biscuity with lots of toffee, a bit of grass, weird... the taste is ok nothing special, super easy to drink though, drank next to Mathias and Mathias was so much better

An amazing IPA- hoppy and full bodied without a harsh finish- has a fruity sweet aftertaste that perfectly compliments the bitterness. Tried this on tap at Angler’s Seafood House. One of five kegs in KS. 11/1/2009.
