12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops and some caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty standard IPA.

On draft at the brewery. Meh, way too malty, if youíre not gonna drop bank on hops then drop the abv. How hard is that?

For those who love a good all american IPA this beer is excellent. Bitter but not too crazy, and no complaints whatsoever!

Bottle. Pours medium orange with a large white head. The nose is light sweet grain, some orange peel and herbal hops. The taste is bitter orange peel and sweet cereal. Hot alcohol flavors have a real presence on the finish of this beer, and dominate the residual tastes left in your mouth. It drinks above itís 7.2%, not a great thing in my book. I talked to a few locals while I was drinking this, and they informed me that this is usually much better on draft. Perhaps a flawed batch? Anyway, not a great IPA.

sherm1016 (1110) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2012
On draft at the City Steam Brewery Cafe. Pours a clear, amber color with an off white head. Aroma is floral, citrus, grapefruit. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready malt, bitter citrus hops, a little pine, with a clean bitter finish. Iím guessing Centennial. A well balance IPA.

City Steam in Hartford. Not a strong aroma. Very clear. Good lacing. Not as hoppy as advertised. Kind of a session IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AirForceHops (2939) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Draft @ brewpub. Pint glass. Small, thin white head. Nose of citrus hops. Flavor is a standard,classic IPA. Grapefruit, malty backbone with a slight resin in the back end of the sip. Not complex in any format but.... still enjoyable. Tad above average. Balanced just right.
