COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís not as heavy bodied and malty as many IPAís, 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.

Poured a dark orange color with medium head. Smelled with definite hops and a bit fruity too. The hops were very apparent and it wasnít too bitter. It felt heavy with slight carbonation. It was very drinkable for how heavy it was. Should definite give it a try.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2008
Pours a very cloudy medium orange color. A frothy, off-white head settles to a wispy film with a prominent edge. Random spots of lacing show on the glass. The nose gives off big orange, grapefruit, and floral notes. Citrus blossoms and dry grains come through fairly strong. The flavor is sharp and bitter up front, with grapefruit and grass really asserting themselves. Softer notes of orange juice serve as a nice transition to sweet toffee and drying wheat. The unfiltered body is substantial and smooth, but finishes slightly astringent and bitter. Overall, a very nice brew.

Metalhead (638) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2008
Nice beer. Orange pour. Aroma and taste of citrus hops and some resiny pine. Lacks the obnoxious bite that some IPAs have. $10 a 6.

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 This one is a lot like Founderís IPA actually. Pours a deep orange, almost an amber. Aroma is almost all citrus and flowers, with a slight hint of pine in there somewhere. No head, little lacing. Very tart and very bitter, extra bitter on the back end. Alcohol really compliments this one. Very solid all the way around, and probably my favorite of the bitter IPAs. Lots and lots of hops in this one for a regular IPA...I cannot wait to try the DOUBLE version!

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2008
On tap at the map room, Chicago. Hazy amber with large white head. Aroma is strong citrus hops, resiny and "drink me" caramel malt sweetness. Sweet caramel body upfront that is all trickery because the hops come back with a venegance, citrus, pine and delicious hop flavor, a west coast gem from the mid west. Medium to full body and creamy. This is an awesome brew, but I still have to put the single and double next to each other to see just what this brew has to offer.

WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2008
This was a hit, and I was surprised to even see it in the first place. It was dark in the room, but this looked cloudier than most IPAís, and it had a sticky feel to it. Very good level of bitter hop flavor, not too much where it begins to get sweet.

scoobysnak (333) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Pours a hazy amber/golden color with a cloud like head that is billowy and a nice white color. Plenty of lacing, and floaties. Smell is sharply hoppy, none of the citrusy notes that you can get in many other IPAís. A resiny piney hoppy smell that is pretty damn sharp. Taste is surprisingly mild. From the smell I was ready for a West Coast ass kicking but it is surprisingly light and refreshing. Predictable hops citrus resiny flavor but it didnít have the kick in the nuts that many do. This is a very excessible beer that is very very good.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2012 Bottle pours a hazy light amber color with a thick white head that lasts forever. Smells like I just tripped into a pile of pine needles. Medium mouthfeel leads to a hop blast. I feel like Iím chewing on hop resins as I drink this. Laces the entire glass. Hop-heads rejoice!

jstraw (1946) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2010 Cloudy, muddy, orange with good, foamy, off-white head / Nose of fresh pine, caramel, and pineapple / Medium body, a touch watery, with big malts but good balance and finish / Flavors of fresh pine, orange, pineapple, and caramel / Minor body flaw keeps it from being great.
