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.

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.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Clear, bright copper with a thin, fine head. Full gamut of hops aromas--citrus, pine, spice, and earth--all in measured, subdued amounts with some underlying grainy characteristics. All this is duplicated in the flavor without much dimension. Clean, medium body, fairly well-balanced with a fine finish.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 14, 2007
From a 12-oz. bottle--Wow! what a surprise hit! Poured a copper-orange body with a decent white fluffy head. Big notes of floral hops, pininess and delectable "it" quality. Fresh, clean, and crisp. A real treat of an IPA brewed in the PNW style.

Thure (152) - DENMARK - SEP 12, 2007
Amber to orange colour with a whit-ish head. The aroma is of maltyness and hops. The flavor is hoppy in a nice balance with the malt backbone and the aftertaste is somewhat bitter and a bit grassy.

BuckeyeBoy (2876) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 4, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2007 12oz Bottle Pours out a nice amber topped with a great off white head. Very nice aroma of hops along with some sweetness. (maybe like a dry hop) Tast is once again nice hops a little bitter. A nice IPA from MT

OldMrCrow (1952) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Pours clear orange with a nice butter-colored head. Fruity hop aroma, spicy pine. The flavor is again driven by the fruity hops; lots of pineapple juice in this one, a bit metallic early, some caramel through the middle, a hint of some herb - sage? - and then a close that is a bit vegetal (though not bad) and not quite in line with the rest of the beer. The mouthfeel is a little bit prickly but otherwise reasonable.

This is a perfectly passable IPA if not an exceptional one.

fruity but not overpowering...color, carbonation, and mouth presence are all middies...a mild, smooth ipa
