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

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2007 Nice golden orange pour with a full head. Aroma isn’t too strong, but hints at floral, citric hops. Watery and thin. Some hop bitterness, not much flavor. Lacking a lot in the malt department. Possibly a band-aid flavor, as well as metal in there somewhere. Overcarbonated. Quite the disappointment.

Bottle obtained in a trade with Illinismitty... thanks Sean! Pours a clear, golden color with a medium head and very sticky lacing. Aroma is light and fruity with a slight hop hint that comes through in the back. Flavor is hoppy and piney with a slightly dry finish. Pretty good beer that I could definitely site and drink two or three of in a sitting! Thanks again Sean!

12oz bottle via trade as a bonus with Notalush - Thanks Brandon! - Pours amber with a short white creamy head that stays well and laces the glass. Aromas of apricot, and light grapefruit over light caramel malts. Flavor is lots of apricot, some definite grapefruit at times. Good malt background with some sweet caramel and some grainy notes as well. Fairly bitter on the finish. Palate is light and well carbonated. Pretty clean feeling IPA overall. Very well balanced and quite drinkable

12 oz. bottle. Best before Oct 06. Poured out a medium straw / light amber color. Has a thin white head, but hung on for the ride to the bottom of the glass. Aromas are of malts, some fruitiness as well. Hops make a major appearance. Flavors are of sweet malts, slight brown sugar, apricots. Medium mouthfeel, decent body. Good IPA in my book.

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 (3511) - 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.
