On Tap at Isaac Newtons. No hop monster, but smooth and well balanced. Just a bit sweet, and pleasantly hoppy with some good citrus flavor. Good overall IPA.

aracauna (3052) - Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2006
Full amber with some suspended yeasties or whatever. The aroma is fairly stinging hops. The malt balances the hop bitterness well. The hops are a little harsh, but not too much so.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Orange with a thick off-white head. Spotty lacing. Aroma of sweet grapefruit and pine resin. Sweet malts and spice flavours balanced out the hops, maybe a little too much so, and there was some residual yeast on the finish (though it could just be from this specific rack). Palate was basically watery for the style, but this beer is still very drinkable and it might appeal to those pale ale drinkers turned off by the "hop bombs" of some IPAs.

TheBeerGod (5218) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Bottle at Max’s. Golden bodied with a small white head. Nose is hoppy and citrusy with sweet malts abound. Taste is hoppy with citrus fuits, sweet malts, and light caramel. Body is medium with moderate carbonation and a light lingering bitterness. Finishes with more hoppy notes, sweet malts, light citrus and caramel.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Cask @ The Old Toad -- Great aroma, nice bitter accents. Pale ruby-gold body with a tan head. Smooth body and good taste, but not with the typical IPA bite associated with most. Smooth ending, very nice overall.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Cloludy amber with a dense clinging off-white head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy, citrus and exotic fruits dominate. The flavor is pretty nice with the exotic fruit coming through (lychee?) in the middle and the malt making a welcom apperance late. Nice malt balance. Maybe a tad thin but otherwise a solid nice IPA.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2007 Bottle. Amber color with thin head dissolving into a thin film. Not much on the aroma, I really didn’t smell much at all. Nice hoppy, citrus flavor. Crisp and a dry bitterness throughout. I wish I had another bottle to taste again, this was an interesting beer. Good one for hop lovers.

This is a great IPA. Full of citrus hops with a smooth body. Tried this brew because the distributor said I wouldn’t be dissapointed, and I wasn’t.

obxdude10 (2031) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2006
Slightly hazy copper appearance, decent sized off-white head with good lacing around the glass, aroma full of hops, earth & citrus, full-bodied & very drinkable, beautifully hopped flavors with an excellent mix & blend of malt, very nicely balanced, slight pine & citrus flavors as well, nice malty finish with just the right amount of hops in the aftertaste, this beer begs you to keep coming back for more, and I, naturally, get sucked in & keep drinking it, great IPA
