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.

On tap at the ACBF. Copper pour with a short off-white head. Tangerine and resin on the nose but a little light on the palate and lacking some of the malt profile. Solid bitter finish.

This was purchased at Whole Foods in Richmond. I was looking for new IPA to try. This Nantucket IPA was quite the surprise. The deep copper ale poured with a full white foamy head that laced down the glass. The aroma of grapefruit hits you as you begin to drink . I want to learn more about summit hops . The medium body ale has a smooth finish with no bitterness. This is a find.

mansquito (3981) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Whole Foods Market, DC six-pack ($9): Pours a copper-amber color with an off-white head and a little lacing (i.e. on the darker side of IPAs). Aroma is intensely fruity, grapefruit is in there plenty; hops of course are there, but who would have doubted that. A little bit of spice too. Taste is pretty hoppy from end to beginning. Astringency starts hitting in the end and leads into moderate, though not extreme, aftertaste. This IPA seems to me to be more of a left coast thing, but of course, that is not a bad thing. I was pleasantly surprised by this more or less random buy.

blazingspiral (170) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAY 9, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Hazy orange body, very thin head. Restrained fruity aroma. On the tongue it is resinous, juicy, tingly, hoppy, and delicious. Not as bright and sharp as a true West coast IPA, but really satisfying. Aftertaste induces salivation. Great stuff!

MrBunn (2536) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2011
Pours a clearish lightly tarnished copper color with a thin head and pungent hops aromas of citrus and cat pee… 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.

yespr (34521) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2011
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 (3438) - 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.

Bottle 355ml
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.
