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.

This one starts off pretty good with a beautiful reddish-copper hue and a tan head, but the good times donít carry over to the initial taste. Flavor is a bit metallic, and other than that itís all hops, hops, hops. Heavy bitterness lingers a little too long at the end. I donít think Iíd get this again.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2007
The beer pours a nice clear copper color from the 12 ounce bottle with a modest white creamy head that fades away leaving the lace to coat the glass in a thin sheet. Nose has a citrus like crispness, chock full of spicy hop aroma, sweet malt, and a bit of fruit, start has a pleasant malt profile, sweet at the front and a bit of hop bitterness at the back, top is medium in feel. Finish continues the hop spiciness; somewhat sweet dry aftertaste ends the beer, a nice drinking IPA.

DuffMan (7633) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 23, 2007
Deep orange amber with a rocky off-white head that laces the length of the glass. Huge aroma of fresh passionfruit and tangerines. Solid sweet malt base with deliciously fruity hops leading into a very bitter woody finish. A delicious IPA.

cathcacr (642) - Oregon, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Nice, well-balanced, partly sweet, partly citrusy, generous head and lacing, non-abrasive finish. Very easy to put down quite fast. Almost right there at the level with Nectar Ales IPA.

BelgianBeerGal (3334) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Bottle poured into a shaker glass. Pours an amber/copper colour with a thin white head and good lacing. Aroma was sweet pine. Grapfruit bitterness in the flavour was very nice with a fruity, sweet finish. Really exciting IPA, especially if you arenít a fan of pungent, strongly bitter hops.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Pours dark amber, somewhat hazy. Aroma of flowers, caramel, some hops and wet forrest. Flavor is full bodied, sweet, hops and a bit of pine flowers come through. Somewhat "light" IPA, doesnít dominate with bitters. A very drinkable IPA, however I enjoy my IPAís a bit more pungent. Overall not a bad beer.

Hopped. Fairly decent finish. Not the greatest IPA I ever had, but who knew Montana was in the game? I do know.

CasperQuaffer (142) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Amber-copper color with sculpted head. Aroma fruity with a strong floral overtone. Flavor unexpectedly sweet, almost candy-like. This is one of the few beers Iíve tasted that the sweetness is bearable, probably due to the tangy hops. Good body on the palate.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - OCT 12, 2007
Slightly cloudy, but mostly clear. Deep burnt amber color. Biscuit head. Strong resinous pine flavor. A decent earthy IPA.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Tasted 9/21/07. 12oz bottle. Clear with a deep amber hue. Layer of bone white head. Decent hop nose. Nuances of bright red fruit, oranges and a touch spicy and piney. Medium bodied and well blended. Long bitter hop finish. Spicy and slightly peppery. Nice hop blend. Mild bready malts. Smooth rolling transition until the very end when it exploades bitterness across the tongue. Slightly sour, off-putting note. Almost dirty mop water. Is that too negative? More so an earthy hop flavor. But still nice.
