COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our organic IPA uses Tomahawk, Cascade, and Centennial hops for a rustic, rough-hewn hop character that pairs great with food or relaxing among friends. Prominent citrus and pine aromas and bitterness that is not over the top balances this medium bodied copper-colored brew.

Bomber from Whole Foods. Clear, orange pour with a persistent, medium white head leaving heavy lace. Nose is pine and some citrus. Medium-light body with moderate, fine carbonation. Some pine, toast, not much else going on. This reminds me of the organic IPAs of several years ago: lightweight, lacking flavor and complexity, and overall rather unexciting. Skip it and try one of the other, much better, Bison ales.

Tap. Pours hazy orange with a large white head and decent lacing. Aroma is pine, grass and caramel. Flavor is pine, bread, metallic notes with a light bitter metallic finish. Not a good example of the style; muddled and unbalanced.

12oz bottle. clean golden brown, mild head. Rich malty ipa, hops are just underbalanced. whiff of metallic malts, bittering finish. Ok

mansquito (3386) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Total Wine, Chantilly 12oz ($2): Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is light citrus hops and plenty of malts. I found this to be a bland and somewhat unbalanced IPA. Beers like this are utterly forgettable to me. Itís organic... so... yeah.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a small off-white head. Light, slightly fruity aroma. Moderately sweet caramel flavor with some light grapefruit hop notes. Dry and grassy finish. A weak and rough hop profile overshadowed by the caramel malts.

UnDecaf (106) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Very thin and light for an IPA. Has an unusual spiciness to it but not much bitterness. Definitely not a very traditional IPA.

BrewDad (4987) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice hops cascade aroma and floral with a bite of fruit. Nice Malt backing citrus flavors and cascade hops flavors come out nicely. Very good beer.

Originally reviewed: 6/8/10. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Great sticky lace. Scents of floral tones, mild citrus, and whiffs of pine on the back end. The mouth is crisp and clean. Flavors of tart citrus, with a bit of a charred aftertaste. Mildly bitter. Some faint sweetness noted. This is not a bad IPA by any means. Itís not the best, or what I was exactly looking for in this style, but still good. Easily drinkable. Could be an easy crossover IPA for the inquisitive.

Not much to this IPA. Very drinkable and smooth, but seems to be missing some of the characteristic IPA notes.

Not great. Itís ok with a yeasty cereal body but bitter finish. Not much hops detected other than the bitter.
