Tap at Brouwers. Orange gold color with a thin head. Nice aroma of floral and fruity hops, almost tropical fruit in the aroma with some malt backbone as well. The flavor is a nice medium bitterness that creates a pleasant fruitiness. Citrus, tropical fruit and perfume are in the flavor profile with light malt/grain back bone. Finishes with a nice hoppy dryness. I feel that this could stand up to a San Diego IPA. Very flavorful, extremely easy to drink, well done.

Aroma – Deep hop aroma with malt to back this up.
Appearance – Dark Golden yellow color, clear with a thin head.
Flavor – Huge IPA flavor. This was a big IPA. Citrus in the flavor with a lot of bittering hops in the end.
Palate – Good Mouthfeel, Nice IPA texture with a dry finish.
Overall – This was recommended by the bartender it was her fav for IPA’s. I thought it would be even bigger but it had a good flavor and finish. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
9/4/07 On draught at the brewery. Aroma is very grassy forward followed by a light earthy/citrus tone. It works great and is very clean for an IPA. Appearance is hazy deep gold with a low off-white head. Flavor is a citrus/earthy hop blend forward with no dirty or musty characteristics and a solid sweet malt balance. Mouthfeel is medium/low bodied with moderate carb texture and a slight resiny feel. Overall, a great IPA with excellent balance between the different hop flavors and sweet malt.
