COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Finally an American-style IPA from us... This beautiful red-orange ale has a full malty body balanced by a fruity apricot/grapefruit nose. Mounds of dank Summit hops in the whirlpool and dry-hop additions provide a deliciously quenching finish to this East meets West-coast ale.

Pours a clearish lightly tarnished copper color with a thin head and pungent hops aromas of citrus and cat peeÖ Must be Cascade? Flavor is very nicely balanced between a pleasant caramel malt ticket and a hops edge that is pretty biting. Mostly citrus peels and herbs. Good mix of the two elements, but I think the hops selection could give a slightly less abrasive final product.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a lot of head. Bitter citrus hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

From tap at Lord Hobo. Pours clear and golden with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, slight peachy and mild mango. Bitter, citrusy and crisp hops fruity. Bitter and dry finish, yet fruity mild.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle at a party. Pours an attractive and slightly hazed orange/gold. Fluffy white head with sticky bubbles. Nose is fresh citrus, a bit of dusta nd caramel. Some light stone fruit as well. On taste, pretty straightforward IPA. Has a distinct malt profile, bready. Pretty dry beer with some pleasing grapefruit and peachy notes. Pretty solid IPA.

Aroma Citrus with some sourness, hint of grape skin, sugar , creamy top. I cants ay I do like it..
Appearance hazed amber with bright white top. Sparse lace.3+
Flavor and Palate : tart with citrus character followed by rough hop paired with caramel sugars. Frontal high carbonation. Feel not very organized , like rushed , unfinished project. Back to drawing board guys.

The nose is of brilliant, bright West coast citrus. Bitter kiwi and orange peel roll around in the mouth with some caramel stickiness too. Yeah.

bhensonb (11494) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Bomber from Half Time. Pours a very hazy copper with an off-white foamy white head. Lots of fruit and citrus in the aroma. Med body. Flavor is mostly citrus over a thin malt backbone. Itís flavorful, but itís not intense. Itís claim to respect is that it is somehow astringent in the finish. So good overall.

glennmastrange (2324) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle. Light to moderate malt note of roasted, moderate fresh herbs for the hops, light dough for the yeast with background notes of pepper and artichoke. Head is small, wispy with larger bubbles, white with some spotty lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy amber/orange with a decent amount of medium size particles that fully settles. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter and a bit sour. Palate is light to medium, watery with a carbonation between lively and fizzy. This IPA has some odd aromas, not bad, and pretty simple flavors , but itís still a very drinkable beer.

Sammy (8912) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
Surprsingly light colour with lots of white head. Pine resin aromas. Initially good hop flavour, then a little astringent finish. Leaves one a bit unsatisfied, even a 7.6% abv. Drinkable nonetheless. Average or even above average mouthfeel, but still missing balance and very good hop flavour.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2010
In short: A yeasty IPA with orange juice flavor upfront
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few days after purchase
The look: Cloudy orange ody topped by a medium off-white head
In long: Nose is like a fresh orange muffin. Taste is very yeasty, orange juice, moist, orange peels, blue cheese, some pine-tree. Malt backbone remains in the back and does not contribute much to the flavor spectrum. After-taste of resinous bitter hops and old slightly past due-date orange juice. To me it was just ok, nothing special. It is an Indie beer. If you donít like it, it is because you donít get it.
