Nice pour that is orange tan with a fat creamy head. Wonderful hop aroma that is citrus and pine with a little candy. Yeah man, thatís bitter. Tongue numbingly bitter pine that makes me smile. Some toast flavor in the finish. Some grapefruit is here too. A nice hop experience.

Bottle. Poured your basic translucent amber/gold....small whitish head. Nice hop nose...and the flavor follows suit. Decent maltiness to back things up. Medium bodied...decent bitterness. This is a pretty good IPA....wouldnít mind having this one again.

(cask @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Nice orange/amber color with a fizzy and creamy white head. Aroma is full of hops. Very nice and floral. Flavor wasnít as hoppy as I thought it would be, although it has a very nice hoppy taste. At the beginning itís a load of hops and floral notes with a slightly sweet and malty middle and a bitter, hop finish. Very smooth and a little watery.

(On tap at The Old Toad, Rochester) Brilliant, rich hop aroma was up there with the best of them. Unfortunately, the flavor wasnít so strong, with mild hopping and a very thin, disappointing palate. Still, quite quaffable and a decent. brew.

Bottle Pours a clear light amber with a nice off white head. Lots of citrusy hop aromas. Flavor is a bit light in the malt body, but quite hoppy. The citrus/grapefruit variety. lively carbonation, and nice sharpo bitter trailer. Nice IPA

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2007 I figured there was a reason that Archer Liquors carried this. Turns out itís quite fantastic. Great citrus hop aroma. Flavor is medium bitterness. Great grapefruit taste, grassiness, pine, and great malt sweetness. Texture is very creamy and smooth. Iím having a love affair with this beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a five-fingered cream head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Strong hoppy/floral nose. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Starts wth some sweetness with the hops dominating but donít overpower and makes this a tolerable IPA. $1.95 for a 12oz bottle from Julioís Liquors Westborough, Ma.

Poured golden with a minimal head. Aromas of citrus, graitfruit, and pine. Taste was quite creamy but lacking in terms of the hops for me. Pretty good IPA.

12 oz bottle, via rudolf. Pours a bright copper body under a fluffy white head. No sediment in bottle. Citric and piney hop aroma, with some toasted and light toffee maltiness. Aggressively hopped flavor, but rather one dimensional in the hop profile. Fairly light in the malt leading to an unbalanced flavor. Light to medium bodied with prickly and fizzy carbonation. Overall a run of the mill IPA, a little unbalanced, heavily filtered, with fizzy carbonation.
