Generous amount of selected hops balance out the malty backbone of this delicious golden India Pale Ale.

[Bottle, February 2007] Orange/ Yellow pour. Aroma is pine and moss. Flavor is pine and potpourri. Exceptionally bitter and crisp mouthfeel.

PilsnerPeter (3031) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 28, 2007
12oz Bottle: Honeyish deep golden pour with an off-white one-finger head. Very aromatic. Lemon citrus, orangey, sweet tangerine and only a hint of pale malt. The flavor is a lot more bitter than the aroma suggests. Seems harsh and bitter, more grapefruity. Lacks malt bite in my opinion. Loads of bittering hops, with nothing to hold up the body. Long, piney, bitter rind-like finish. Not so balanced.

Opposite end of the spectrum of a Two Hearted, where as the two hearted is somewhat bitter, this was a sweeter IPA. The first half of the glass tasted brilliant, but lagged after the class was hall full. Would drink again, draft only though.

Borrrris (110) - LINDENHURST, New York, USA - JAN 27, 2007
BOTTLE: You want hops? We got hops? Lotsa hops. Tasty, not too bitter hops at that. Not my most appreciated style, so Iíll keep my less that expert observations to a minimum. Grapefruit flavor nicely subdued when icy cold becomes annoyingly dominant to me as it warms, but I suspect that hops lovers will find this a pretty good one of the style. BUY AGAIN? Probably not

12 oz bottle into a Tulip glass, thanks to Kirk for picking this up in NJ! Pours a light golden orange color that is moderately hazy. A thin foamed white head sits up to, retaining mostly to the sides of the glass. Quite strange, there really isnít much of an aroma on this guy, but what is there is lightly spiced and hoppy with no malt present. The flavor begins a bit watery actually (which comes to mind on the nose) and swiftly moves into a citrusy hop note that is fairly one dimensional. The taste ends on a nice and light, refreshing bitter pine hop note. I donít taste much malt in this beer whatsoever, itís interesting. Overall itís well done, but very simple and one dimensional.

Pours orange with a small retaining head. Has a nice hoppy finish, with a citrusy flavor to it. Just a hint of malt.

lukin013 (215) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 19, 2007
Sampled at Dís. Golden yellow body with small foamy white head. Fairly bland aroma of citrus hops. Flavor has a little more character with some sweet caramel malt with the crisp citrus. A little bit of a soapiness.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Pours a pale orange with a thin but persistent ivory head. Some soapy looking lacing. Smell is somewhat citrusy but more herbal in the nose. No malt aromas evident. Taste is dominated by the herbal hops. Bitter, herbal hops with just a hint of orange rind. Hops take the finish as well and the resinous hops stick to your tongue and your teeth. Not subtle, not complicated but pretty tasty with a unique blend of hops that balance bitter and sweet. Worth a look.

Bottle, Pours a slightly hazy amber/orange with a medium head. Not much retention, good lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and pine hops, mostly, which just a touch of malt sweetness. Iíd almost rate this as a double IPA. Right on the edge.
Medium body. Pleasantly bitter finish.
