Simply put this is a well developed beer. It pours a beautiful clear copper color with a medium white head. Mild hints of grapefruit and citrus in the nose. Soft and creamy with mild hop flavors throughout. Definitely not overpowering on the hops but instead quite gentle and well balanced. Good stuff.

There are chunks floating in it! Dark golden, with a nice head. I’d like to say this is a standard US IPA aroma, complete with soaring hops. Very mild, but full malts to back up the hoppiness, unlike in a lot of IPAs I’ve had.

I have absolutley nothing bad to say about this beer. A hop lovers dream. Probably the best I.P.A. I’ve had so far.

On tap @ the Hourse Brass. Murky light copper with good head and lacing. Bitter upfront then grapefruit that slides into a smooth maltiness and finishes a dry bitterness that lingers for a will. Nice beer

Copper color with yeast sediment, thick white head with good lacing. Piney hops aroma. Piney hops flavor with caramel. Bitter finish. Medium body, dry mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Well, this is one of my first experience with a "west coast" IPA and I am impressed and amazed !

This is very close to HopDevil and Stone IPA. Very good IPA. Slightly hazy dark copper appearance. Medium sized off-white head. Strong hoppy, piney, lil minty aroma. A slight detection of alcohol. Flavor was bursting with hops. Some floral flavors I’ve never tasted before. Grapefruit. Good bitter finish. Excellent IPA.

Bottle conditioning produced the appropriate cloudy, amber appearance. The complexity of the nose increased as the temperature decreased: highly hopped, citrusy, with an underside of spices and flowers that developed nicely. Well-carbonated, with a medium body and a clean, hoppy taste that does not neglect the malts. Finishes dry and a slightly bitter with a bit of an alcohol burn at the end.

Thanks to rater Kinz for sending me such an awesome package of brew last month!

Pours with a fizzy copper body and a fat pillow of white rocky head on top.. lacing all over the damn glass. The aroma is quite floral.. full of citrus and other tropical fruit: grapefruit, tangerine, mango, and guava, with a note of lime. The flavor brings all of the same tropical ambiance as the aroma but it also boasts a rich suggestion of spicy pine and cedar chips. There is some warmth in the finish and a bit of astringency... finish is dry as a dehydrated dog! Nice thick palate, full body and sticky lipped! – pretty damn tasty if may say so!
