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.

On draft in Dallas: Beer pours an attractive dark honey color. The aroma is hoppy and floral. Flavor is hoppy, somwhat bitter with some malt for balance. This is a solid IPA. Palate is clean. I enjoy this IPA. Growlerable.

Had this one at the brewpub in Schaumburg, Illinois. Hazy dark orange pour with a thick, fluffy head, profoundly hoppy with piney and citrusy bitterness. Very bitter and very good.

On tap @ C.I. Shenanigans in Spokane. Medium amber, thick head, great retention. Very piney, vegetal hop character, nice malts without being overly sweet or sticky. Tasty.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - MAY 8, 2003
Tap at Dallas location. Average looking amber. Nice subtle spice in the taste. Not much like an IPA at all - like every other beer in this place it was VERY lacking in hops. Still drinkable; ginger was apparent in the finish.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Draught: Light amber brown color. Clear and sparkling. Average, lasting, creamy white head. Excellent lacing. Nutty malts, heavy hop flavors of flowers, herbs, spruce, citrus, and grapefruit. Also tasted of pepper, allspice, coriander, ginger, medicine. Full bidy and oily texture. Lively carbination. Bitter finish. Same hops as TwoRow Hopzilla (Amarillo I think).

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Schaumburg. Clear copper in color with a saliva splotch in the center for the head and a creamy off-white wrung on the outskirts. Hoppy aroma jumps out, partnering with herbal traits, lemons and lilies of the valley. Sweet and bitter flavor. Amarillo and cascades are well represented. Tingly, bitter pine traits. Medium to fuller bodied. Very bitter with a nearly chafing finished. Well balanced, and easily this brewpub’s best.

Draught at the brewpub (Salem, OR location). Light orange, slightly hazy with white head that left plenty of lace. Aroma was grapefruity hops. Flavor was similar with pleasant hop bitterness that lingered.

Pint Fishers location arrived in a frozen glass - Aroma is fresh hops and carmel. Pours cloudy orange with a small head and good lacing. Flavor is fresh citrus hops that are nicely balanced with carmel and other malts. Palate is tart and smooth. Refreshing and tasty.
