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.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2010
12oz bottle from Perfect Pour. Pours dark orangish-copper with good size white head. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, hops, and some malt. Flavors of some grapefruit, bitter hops, touch of pine, and some malt. Finishes really bitter but hops flavors dont really blend well. Appreciate the effort. Nice amount of hops used for sure.

Orange, good head on draft. Bitter hoppy tastes, but not like an American IPA does with Cascade. Finish is bitter and clean.

Bomber at a tasting
Appearance : Clear ywllow, not much head.
Aroma : Peachy and fruity. A bit piny. Reminds me a bit of Kool-Aid.
Taste : Peachy fruity, finish quite resinous. Light yeast. Finish is a bit dusty.
Overall : Nice fruity profile but rather avereage overall. Reminds me a bit of Kool-Aid which is a bit weird...

auerbrau (3146) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 21, 2010
12oz Bottle purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. Aroma is juicy, orange-like and dank, with what must have some Cascade. If they used Summit, they managed to avoid the onion-like, garlicky characters, which is a good thing. There’s a fair amount of caramel malt in the base, but somehow I appreciate the deeper sweetness this beer lends. Overall, it seems to have more complexity with the sweetness and the extra bitterness. This is a more intense east coast style IPA. Reasonable, but nothing extraordinary.

crazyvin (1897) - New York, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Poured an orange amber hue with a white head that had good retention and lace. Aroma had a nice caramel note along with pine hops and citrus notes. Flavor had good malt notes the caramel notes mellowed out the hop bite. Hops were present but not to the extreme level. Finish was crisp and the palate was moderate.

Hoppy aroma, citrus and pine with a bit of cheesiness. Flavor is medium malty with a big piney hop finish and lingering bitterness. Not bad.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Draft @ Logan "brewpub" - clear dark amber with run creamy light tan head; grassy hops with bitter lemons, a little orange peel, mild caramel and dry malt; thin mouthfeel but some sticky dry bitter too; dry caramel with light hop flavor, but plenty of lemon bitters; has an english pale kind of feel to it and not really what I’m looking for in an IPA

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2010
22 oz. bottle. Pours a mostly clear orange-gold with a moderate-large white head that lasted through the first half of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of grapefruit, lemon, and resinous pine. The flavor is equally enjoyable with grapefruit (more fruit than pith), lemon, resinous pine and caramel. Moderate hops bitterness at the finish. Very nice IPA that is not overdone in terms of bitterness.

Elwood (3009) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Paeonian Grocery.
It pours a deep copper color with a foamy white head. Nice head retention and decent lacing gets left behind. The nose is hop forward as you would expect and is very floral. Light notes of pine are there as well, but I don’t get much from the malt side. The flavor is one sided with lots of florals, pine, and a somewhat tepid back bitterness. Medium bodied leading to a very floral finish. Not terrible, but terribly one sided with little malt balance and overly floral.
