bottle. amber pour, heavy malt presence in both the aroma & flavor. bitterness was pretty subdued, i thought hop presence was pretty weak when i initially thought it was an IPA, as an IIPA it is even weaker. not too impressed

Dark, amber, toffee color with nutty malt tones and little hops in nose and mouth. Drank out of bottle and there wasn’t to much to this beer. This beer was sweet and toasty nut aftertaste. Not a favorite.

Pours hazy orange red with white head, aroma has notes of pine, grass, slightly muted citrus and some caramel. Taste is fairly simple, fairly hoppy with pine and grass, some slight citrus, with a nice biscuit and caramel middle, fairly bitter finish. Much more like a single IPA, but pretty good.

A dark reddish amber IPA with a thick moka head. In aroma, pleasant floral hops with wild grass notes. In mouth, a bitter and unbalanced version, lacking malts, bilous notes, watery. On tap at PA Flavor, April 9th, 2011.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer came highly suggested as an IPA. Wow, what a major disappointment. Clear amber with a decent head, but this is considered an IPA? Where are the hops? Not in the smell of the beer, nor in the taste. Hardly had any hops flavor to it. It lacked the bite an IPA should have. It did have a citrus taste. Not a bad beer, not in the IPA league.

(bottle - 12 oz) Cloudy copper pour with a thin white head. Sweet citrus and caramel aroma with some slight hints of boiled vegetables. Citrus and caramel begin quickly before the bitter and astringent hops take over. Very dry and peppery with a flavor that lingers and lasts. A bit too cloying for me.
