On tap at the Eccentric Cafe on April 11, 2009. A: Light amber orange barely transparent. Decent head with good lacing. S: Very hoppy with some freuits. More citrus than pine. Mildly floral. T: More pine in the taste than in the nose. Quite hoppy and delicious. M: Medium mouthfeel and slight alcohol warmth. Chewy. D: A very "sessionable" ipa in the same line with 60 Minute IPA. Delicious.

Pineapple aromas, malt. Orange yellow and opaque. Flavors are hopped with a light saltiness, bitter breadiness, some citrus, creamy and rich, good long duration. Like a barleywine lite. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2009 On tap at the Eccentric Cafe 3/30/09. The only info on the board was "experimental IPA"....ABV is unknown, but Id guess it in the 7 to 8% range. It is hands down one of the better IPAs i think Ive had from any brewer. Pours a dark coppery/amber color with a good lacing head. The aroma is absolutely fantastic of peaches, grapefruit and piney goodness. The taste is a bit akin to chewing in pine needles and grapefruit rind mixed with a lightly sticky caramel malt. Palate is somewhat dry with a really bitter finish. The entire thing comes together so nicely its almost hard to describe. All I can say is its everything an excellent IPA should be. Incredible. Update.. Still great, but not as the last time...brought rating down accordingly.
