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.

Aroma is sweet and hopped, but a tad stale and vinegary. Poured a nice deeper brown/orange, but without a big nice head. End carbonation is an off white ring. Taste is hopped but bitter and vinegary. Palate was a bit frothy.

Bottle shared by sonnycheeba. Pours hazy dark amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is moderate citrus, tropical and dank hops, biscuit malt, grassy notes and pear esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, supporting crisp biscuit malt, light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Reviewed from notes. This one was poured into a pint glass and a tulip. There wasnít any difference between the two. The appearance had a nice red-orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and left some light glossy spider web lacing. The smell had a "fruity" apricot to grapefruit aroma with a nice bittering underneath of some light spicy hops. The taste had a nice citrusy to apricot-like flavoring coat my taste buds fairly nicely. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a fairly decent sessionable aspect about it. The carbonation seemed just a tad under for the IPA style, but honestly wasnít too bad to me. Overall, for the most part, I say this was a good IPA worthy of having again.

Tap pour @ Cisco. Clean amber in glass. Slight lacing. Straight forward nose. Dank hops, faint lemon. Taste sticks with the aforementioned notes. Basic malt backing. Bitter on the finish. Decent carbonation. There are better IPAs on offer on site.

@ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear medium-dark amber, generous sudsy off-white head, puffs of lace. Taste is malt that moves into the palate carrying a load of citrus hops and sour apricot with it before adding the taste of Ry-Krisp crackers into the finish. Kind of a mess of a beer, sending odd tangents out in all directions. A little more order, please.

12oz can into glass. Pours a brown mash autumn orange, looks like October. Foam is full, large and dominant, looked nice with a vanilla creme color to it. Plenty of lacing. Aroma is dry hay grass lemon pepper hops, mineral water and rum citrus. Taste is bitter, dry melon, punchy grapefruit, weed, and bready malts with a hop kick at the end. Not a bad beer, drinks well at 6.5, high bitter aftertaste.

This was a darn good IPA at a reasonable price. It was recommended by the knowledgeable man at the beer store and Iím glad I tried it. It had a nice frothy head, plenty of hops and it was surrounded by a nice malty background. I will definitely drink this again. The beer expert at the store didnít consider this a session IPA, but. I do. Very drinkable and the ABV isnít over the top. See you tomorrow my new friend!

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma has some sweetness from the caramel malts and some bitterness from the citrus and floral hops. Flavor starts off malty with a hint of toastiness. Finishes only slightly bitter from the floral hops. Pretty thick on the palate as well.
