4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, at BA Throwdown #2. Pours a bronze sheen, creamy white head and very sticky lacing. Strong hops in the nose, citrus, huge tropical influence, lots of mango, notably and some cantaloupe. Flavors of bitter hops, citrus, and big on tropical fruit. Very tasty. Nice tangy body, smooth, hoppy as hell, very unique and very good. Real surprised by this gem.

Really nice offering here...deep dark copper color, could ahve used a nice glass but the flavor, hop balance, body made up for it. Really fine brew.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper color with a large tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus and tropical hops and toffee malts. The taste matches. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, well balanced. Very nice beer.

On tap at the brewery. Pours an almost clear gold with a thin white head. Big pineapple and citrus on the nose, like an apricot fruit rollup straight out of a childhood memory soaked in orange juice. Medium bodied, soft malt and a bit of orange peel, citrus, earthy grapefruit. Slow earthy bitterness into the finish, lingering grapefruit and a hint of orange sweetness.

This beer rocks!...They had just run out of Wit at the Brew Works and up went the slate with IPA on it. No specs were available from the staff at the time... Crystal clear, textbook amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Cumulus lacing. Lots of fruity esters in the aroma (green banana and green apple) with notes of sweat and earth. Very nice, moderately bitter flavor. Well-balanced by a ton of malt. Toffee, pink grapefruit and pear. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, moderately bitter, dry finish. World class IPA!

At Church on cask. Glad I did. Cloudy gold with a frothed head. More or less flattish body, but nice. Caramelly malt covered by fruity smooth hops... all kinds of fruit but not bitter fruit. Slight pine too. Very nice beer.

Bottle from Summer SS 08. Good citrus and fresh floral aromas. Cloudy cooper body with off white head and decent lacing. Good citrus grapefruit hop flavor with some sweet sugar addditive. Cool and crisp on the palate with citrus lingering on palate. Good brew thanks Alan.

Draft or bottle either way its good stuff. If you a fan of the amber IPA’s with the nice roasty burnt amber flavor this is it. It has a really clean taste and a nice dry finish that does not belie its 8% alcohol. Eat a steak and some spicy seafood and drink 3 or 4 of ’em. Plus the label on the bottle is bad ass, although I would never award points for artwork.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Smells of hoppy grapefruit. Taste is a bit too bitter for the smell. Good on a hot summer day.
