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 from tjthresh, thanks Tom! Pour is orange copper, with some haziness to it. Aroma is pine hop and citrus fruit. Taste is delicious, very smooth with a nice balance between the hops and the malt. A nice, straight forward IPA, well done!

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2007
Hazy orangy copper with a thin to nothing white head. Piney mango hops and slight alcohol over a significant malt backbone. The sweetness is very well balanced with the hops and alcohol. A good low carbonation and nicely slightly sticky. About where I want an IPA. The flavors are pretty much in line with the aroma, but a few little flaws come out. The big piney mango hops and slight alcohol are still over that nice round malt backbone but now I see this is a bit too biscuity and toasty for an IPA. Not unpleasant, but not quite spot on. the finish is toasty with alcohol, the lingering aftertaste has a floral bitterness. I also notice some diacetyl. Not bad, I’d drink more of this.

Pours murky medium orange with tiny particles. Aroma is mainly of grapefruit and lime hoppiness. Flavor is balanced twards bitter, with a long hop finish. Light to medium bodied, watery.

patrick767 (3571) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 10, 2007
tap at the brewpub - Pours copper with a thin, lingering head. It has a pleasant citrus hops aroma that carries through into an excellent citrus hop flavor with some mild malt backing. Lively carbonation pairs with a medium body, then this ale ends with a crisp, moderately bitter finish. Nice.

clear orange small white head. not much lacing. toasted nutty biscuit malty aroma with a nice dash of floral hops. bitter flavor but the toasted caramel malt flavor is in the forefront. just needs more green hop flavor. bitter nutty finish. medium body. ok but nothing great.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2007
Bottle from sliffy via Mystery Swap 2.0. Pours like raw sewage color with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of heavy tropical fruit, hopcitrus, some bready notes. Tastes very hoppy, tropical fruity, with caramel malt and some citrus notes. Medium palate that seems to gain complexity as it warms.

Strong, hoppy aroma with a mild fruity undertone. Fruity, hoppy flavor with a bit of hop bitterness. Moderate mouth feel.

Duster72 (117) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Pours a very cloudy dark copper color with a one-finger head that took a few minutes to dissipate. Sticky lacing down the glass. Aroma was rather mild, but primarily earthy hops of the pine/floral variety. Taste is fantastic. Perfect blend of pine, floral and citrus hops with excellent matly sweetness. One of my top two IPAs. Very drinkable. If I had bought a six pack, I probably would have drank 3 or 4 at the minimum on a nice warm early spring evening at the grill.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Bottle. Slightly cloudy dark straw color with a thick white head. Moderate grapefruity hop aroma, medium-bodied palate. Nice clean hop bite to start the taste, and a piney finish that lingers for a good while. Drinkable and hoppy, but there’s certainly hoppier out there. A good IPA, but Dark Horse does stouts better IMO.
