Hazy gold pour with a fluffy off white head. Aroma is resinous and citric. Really bitter mouth-feel. HopArt more like Hopbite. Either way this is a really solid offering. Caramel, pine, and citrus. Finish is dry and resinous.

Thanks to Solan for cracking this. Pours a light hazy gold pour. Big citrus and pine hoppiness. Taste has an explosion of hop bitterness, a bit more than what I normally like. Overall, a good IPA that could use a bit more balance but tasty nonetheless.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Very nice pour, hazy and dark orange. The aroma and flavor is almost a citrus limely flavor, with a massive load of hops. This is definitly a smooth, and well balanced, IPA.

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Thanks to OrlGamecock for bringing this to his first Thursday tasting. Nice hoppy aroma of citrus and pine. Bitter flavor. This is a solid example for the style. Good stuff.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Pours golden blonde with a thin white head. Bready and hoppy, earthy hops with a nice dryness, bready malts, with a dry finish. Excellent! Great way to finish off a great tasting.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2009
Pours a cloudy golden orange/peach color with golden burnt orange hues when held to a light source and a two finger yellowish foam head. Very good retention, only slowly settling into a lasting cap that coats the glass with sheets of chunky soapy lacing. Earthy floral hop aroma with lots of sweet citrus notes. Plenty of dank oily hops with hints of grapefruit, mango and lemon peel. Subtle earthy pine character and light malts. Chewy resinous full body with lots of earthy dry hops and sweet citrus flavor. This beer is amazingly fresh with lots of luscious dank oily hops as well as both dry pine and sweet citrus notes. Lots of mango, grapefruit and lemon peel character with a ton of dry bitterness and dry earthy pine needle. Slight alcohol presence toward the end of the swallow that lingers into the dry finish. Nice biscuit/graham cracker malt backbone provides some balance but doesnít detract from the glorious hop flavor at all. I loved this beer and wished that I had better access to it. Highly recommended!

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Bottle from 5 points. Bottled on 11/26 so itís fresh. Everything that a sculpin or duet is not. Hoppy bitterness predominates. This is a good beer, but not my favorite choice of hops.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2009
22oz bomber from whole foods in greenville. pours a very cloudy, light orange-gold with a long lasting, thick, bubbly, light khaki head and nice lacing. aroma is very nice with sweet, juicy citrus hop notes of grapefruit and tangerine with hints of pineapple, candy sugar, grass, and toasted malts. flavor is very tasty as well with bright, assertive citrus notes of grapefruit, orange, and lemon peel up front with mild, sugary floral notes and light, bready, crystal malts on the back end. palate is medium bodied and nicely carbonated with a dry, citrus hop finish. overall, a very easy drinking, solid IPA.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2009
On tap at the BSP Hop Harvest Fest. Pours a cloudy golden amber with a thick creamy white head that shows great retention and lacing. The aroma has a nice juicy sweet hop character with lots of pineapple and orange peel. Maybe some toasted bready malts as well, and the hops are very sweet with some sugary notes. The citrus hops are more aggressive in the taste with some astringent bitterness up front from the hops. The middle is a battle between the hops, the bready malts and a solid sugary sweetness. The finish is slightly dry but with plenty of fruity sweetness lingering on the palate as well. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and overall this is an extremely drinkable IPA. Solid stuff.
