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.

Beaver (1599) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy light tea color with a small off white head that quickly diminishes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is subdued - some sweet (almost nutty) caramel malt with a little melon and some grassy hops.

The flavor is off to me - a little sweet caramel malt and a lot of metallic hops that leave a tarry aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and kind of watery.

Overall, it’s got a good amount of bitterness, but the flavors taste very off to me.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6372) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-amber color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was bitter with strong floral hops followed by light pine and caramel. The flavor was strong floral, fruity and resiny hops and was intensely bitter with undertones of bread and caramel. The finish was long, rough and hoppy. Medium body. Solid.

bbbeer (689) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Copper orange with small head. Nice aroma of mainly citrus hops and faint malt. Medium body, no real alcohol to speak of. Flavor is again citrus hops, nicely bitter but not overwhelming and nice balance to allow repeated drinking. Just about exactly what an IPA should be.

drjay44 (3274) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2011
12 oz. bottle. 6.5% ABV per the breweries web sith. Pours a lasting off white medium head, with attractive lacing, over a clear amber (SRM 8) body....nose is toffee/caramel, light pine, touch of citrus, medium spice, bit of dust....taste is toffee/caramel, light cereal, leading to hop spice bitter finish, with minimal pine, citrus....mouth feel medium, carbonation medium to high. This is nicely balanced, and is not as hop heavy as many in "the American Style". BJCP 7/3/14/4/6.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
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.

Foxbush (1713) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2011
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 (4968) - 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 (2658) - 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.
