COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed as a medium India Pale Ale, this full-flavored moderately hopped beer has the strongest hop character of our ales. Made for hopheads and new beer aficionados. The grist composition is 94% Pale malt, with the remaining grain bill consisting of carastan malts. The finishing Mt. Hood hop addition in the whirlpool gives this beer a good hop character without becoming excessively bitter. The beer is fined instead of filtered so the hop character is not stripped away.

This is slightly hazed and pale red in color. Head of medium bubbles. Hop character in the nose is citrusy but the bitterness in the finish is earthy. Sweetness and bitterness are well balanced and this is rather drinkable. Not bad but a little bit bland.

On tap at The Ram in Boise
Appearance: Clear golden with a small white head and some lacing
Aroma: Citrus
Taste: Citrus and malts
OK, but I wouldn’t say it was a IPA, very light on hops.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Draft at the pub. Pours a slightly cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of Piney hops and some metallic notes, some caramel malts and a candyish sweetness. Flavor is of sweet caramel candy and more bitter piney hops. Not much in the hop flavor, some candy and hop finish. Medium body and a soft prickly carbonation. Meh, not much of an IPA with much complexity or balance in the hops character.

Strykzone (4782) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Sampled at the Indy brewpub. Clear gold with a bit of rust. A white ring. Some nice complex hop notes. Citrus and pine. Some cinnamon spice and a bit of malty sweetness that tries to compete with the bitterness. A pleasant IPA.

Tejas (864) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Draught > Humperdinks > Arlington, TX. Pretty solid IPA little IPA. Good balance w/ plenty of bitterness on the finish. Glad I found something decent to drink here before a Ranger game.

Medium amber, light, with little aroma. Very smooth for an IPA. If you wanted to get into IPAs you should start with this one. Nice hoppy flavor but not too strong.

Bigirish311 (3) - USA - JUN 12, 2010 does not count
Enjoyed on tap at the Ram on Tacoma waterfront. Beer is hazy amber. Strong citrus flavor from the hops. Not quite as big or as hoppy as I like my IPAs. Moderate to weak malt flavor (for the style). Hops are very present but do not overwhelm. Overall a very decent beer, but not my favorite.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Pours amber with a frothy white head. Smells of hops and taste even more so with a very bitter, crisp finish. Not much else to this one.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - APR 29, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2010 Clear amber, foamy off-white head. Aroma of fresh malt, floral hops, caramel, peach, tangerine. Taste is more bitter and resinous but still has a lot of sweet citrus and malt. Medium body, smooth carbonation. Draft at C.I. Shenanigans Spokane. Clear amber orange, foamy white head. Aroma of floral and tropical hops. Taste has some grapefruit bitterness and tropical sweet hop. Medium bitter finish.

Some times I am a man of few words. This beer was good.
