COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not as heavy bodied and malty as many IPA’s, in contrast the palate is more crisp and dry. If you consider yourself a "hop-head" you owe it to yourself to grab this beer.

Bottle. Pours a medium amber with a very thick head. Nose is citrus and hoppy. Flavor was big hops with a bitter, dry finish. Very full-bodied IPA. I was really enjoying this one, but iunfortunately it was getting a bit tiresome with the bitterness becoming somewhat tediious. However, a all-in-all real good IPA. Thanks to lewis13 for this one.

Bottle - Nice white head with good lacing. Dark Golden Hazy unfilltered appearance. Deep woodsy grassy flavor. Wow, this beer was very easy to drink. They don’t get much more crisp. One of the best beers I’ve had this summer. The brewer at the Dark Horse deserves a pat on the back for this one.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Bottle: Hazy copper, nice off white head and lots of lacing. Nose of bright citrusy pine and wood. The flavor is yeast with a nutty malt overtone and a nice bitter spicy balance. Still a bit overgrassy and dry in the finish.

12oz bottle from EithCubes - thanks, Mike! Tart and grassy IPA, something that kind of appeals to me these days. Heavily hopped and with a rich mouthfeel, I’m liking the contrast between fullness and dryness. Nice stuff.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 29, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Very lively carbonation - nice frothy white head...very dry and crisp. But the flavor is way off - tastes like dirty bitter water. Very dirty. Not an enjoyable flavor on this one, I could barely finish it. Hopefully I didn’t get a skunked up bottle.

SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Thanks to Shigadeyo for sharing this one at the Tennessee Spring(ish) Tasting held in Knoxville, TN on 3/10/2007. This hazy gold brew throws up a frothy white head. Floral, spicy hop aroma. The flavor is bitter with malt taking a second row to the hop performance going on here. Creamy and bitter with some dryness that builds in the finish.

12 oz bottle, via sliffy. Pours a very hazy copper body under a quickly fading off-white head that faded to a partial covering of film. Lots and lots of sediment here. Aroma of grassy and lightly citrusy hops with a light pale malt accent. Quite a bit of yeast also. The flavor is pretty light on the hops, with just a slight bitterness on the finish. Doesn’t seem very lively. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a thicker feel to it than I expected. I think that the heavy amount of yeast has alot to do with the fullness. This was OK, but I think that the super heavy yeastiness dulled the hops out too much.
