COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, rich IPA features Simcoe hops which give it both a fruity, piney hop nose and a clean, ringing bitterness. IN-between, the malt flavor is slightly caramel for a touch of malt sweetness. This IPA is well-balanced and very expressive with hops.

Flavors aren’t as deep as some of my favorite IPAs and double IPAs but still really nice citrus/grapefruit, pine, and hops. In addition, some sweetness blended in along with some bitterness on the finish which I really like. Even with an ABV 6.2 one of my favorite session IPAs because it’s somewhat easy drinking in my opinion.

bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear amber brown, heavy tan head cover, a curtain of lace. Aroma is an appealing citrus and malt. Taste is full-bodied toffee malt that grows in the palate, finally allowing satisfying citrus hops to wash through on the swallow. But,...when the "smoke" clears, there is the malt, lingering nicely. Good stuff.

Bottle from pizza port. Loved jackls description of "tired" could agree more lots of malt and syrup. Tastes like it has been sitting around for too long even though the can indicates it’s fairly fresh. Only ok, wouldn’t drink again.

jackl (4671) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle from Guess Who? Bentonville. Strong caramel malt. Hot cantaloupe. Cotton candy. Flavor is slightly tangy grain, sickly apple. Strange. Strong malt character. Tastes pretty tired. Medium body, syrupy. Not great.

Ipaluvr082 (60) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle from Craig MT. Translucent copper amber with caramel head. Pine fruit and citrus hops on the nose. A colorful taste with a strong hoppy pine grapefruit rind finish. Similar or the NW style, just a little more wild, almost seems like Sage in the initial bite. I like it!

Bosco (167) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Deep, clear amber. Very fine tiny bubbles lacing. Toasty, bready nice layering of flavors on the finish. A good attempt at what could be a great beer. $9.99/multi six pack at Binny’s Beverage Depot, Elmwood Park, IL
