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 beer should be called IAA - India Apricot Ale. Great taste! Just tons of apricot, IMHO. Ruby, cloudy pour, lovely color. Decent head. Some alcoholic flavors, but not dominating. The hop is good, not too nuts. Tastes like a little bro to the Hopslam. Carmel taste from the malt coming through nicely in combo with the hop. Nice brew! She’s got some snort to her!

AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Very well balanced IPA - very very hoppy but the malt flavor still manages to come through. Clear copper poor, pine/citrus aroma, flavors of malt and grapefruit pithy (the white stuff in between the fruit segments I think?) and a nice pleasing aftertaste of fading hop bitterness.

Bottle. Pours clear copper, thin white head. Aroma of pine and citrus with a little sweet malt. Lots of bitter hops, much more than I was expecting, with some orange and pine notes. Crisp and lingering bitter finish. Wow, very bitter.

Draft. Deep copper color with some orange highlights. somewhat malty aroma with some resinous pine and citrus notes. fruity with a slight honey note. Pronounced bitterness with orange and pine hop flavors. Clean, bitter finish. Nice.

Has an excellent hop aroma. Lots of up-fromt bitterness and that’s it. Its lacy and stringent on the end. Nothing worth remembering. Finish is very very bad.

(Bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, and pine. Flavor of hops, spruce, caramel, and dill weed with a bitter finish.

boFNjackson (4189) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 26, 2007
Bottle... poured a darker amber color with a nice frothy head. Aroma of earthy hops and toasty malt. Really nice, broad palate with flavors of bitter hops, sweet caramel and more hops. This is a nice brew.

piscator34 (2114) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 21, 2007
Orange in colour with moderate carbonation. Strong aromas of pine, flowers, dark and rich caramel malt, and juicy sweet orange. In the mouth there’s a bit of caramel and bready malts, but the main focus is on the very piney hops. Some notes of cut grass are also apparent. Medium bodied with a nice drying finish. A bit ho-hum, but a well executed IPA nonetheless.

This is good stuff!!! I wasn’t sure what to expect from this brewery but was pleasantly surprised. This is a full bodied, beauty. Close your eyes and give this one a sniff and you’ll think your hiking in the forrest...this is one piney mofo!! Taste is great...good hop, malt, bitterness balance. A slight soapy after taste is the only thing that takes away from this...not sure if it’s my glass or if they left this one in the fermenter too long. There’s some suspended particles and not sure what they are so this may have been on the shelf too long.
