Pours slightly orange with a thin white head. Nice floral quality to the nose. A bit of pine sol on the tongue without the bitterness. I was hoping this one would pack a bit more of a punch.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Spot on and serviceable, not as promising as it sounds, seven hop varieties and all. Lacey. Little aroma. Big bitterness at 82 IBU. Their pale was more enjoyable.

David slays Goliath!!!! Blind tasting, Great Lakes Brewing News IPA Challenge 2010. Cant believe this beat Bells Two Hearted. They caught bells ona bad day, a rather flat listless offering from LB> Now onto the upset. Deeper copper pour, very light bodied, harsh weedy bitterness, light hop burn on the palate. The lesser of two evils this day, still shocked

Bottle sampled at Noog Four-0 5/31/08: Pours a transparent bright golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet lightly toasty pale caramel malt with a big grapefruity hop balance. Body starts with good, fairly full pale malty sweetness and nice fresh assertive grapefruity resiny hop flavor. Nicely balanced and enjoyable.

Growler courtesy of MikeTD. Pours copper with a foamy white head. Smells of roses, oranges, perfumy, earthy. Tastes bitter and resiny with a touch of honey and melon on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a hazy light orange color with a thin white head that ebbs slowly. Thin sheet of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops and earthy malt. Medium-bodied and moderately bitter with hops and pine flavors and just a hint of malt in the background. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Overall this is a slightly above average, kind of one-note IPA.

Tasted at Noogfest 4.0 (2008). This IPA pours a medium copper color from the growler. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is citrusy hops and some malt. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are citrusy and grapefruity. A touch on the sweet side, but a very drinkable IPA. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
