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.

Bottle, cloudy amber pour, cause I didnít pay attention to decanting off the yeast. Piney and citrus hop aroma, didnít get a ton of grapefruit tho. Malty hoppy flavor, yeasty too (cause I poured in the yeast by accident). Smooth and well balanced. Nice IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2010 Pours muddy amber with nice creamy white head, mostly lasting. Nice lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus with a touch of malt. Flavor is very bitter, lots and lots of grapefruit, has earthy, woody quality to it. A bit lean on the malt end. Texture is smooth, fills the mouth. Dry finish. Beautiful beer, not to be missed on tap.

Hazy luminous golden. Rather fantome-esque in appearance. Sticky sweet aroma with some dusty, piney, grapfruity hops. Rather bitter, lean and mean maltiness dryish finish. Decent aromatics, but a bit muddled in the finish. Thanks Eric.

Draft at Dark Horse. This is a good brew. Hazy amber color with a moderate white head that lasted and had good lacing. Good well balnced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Moderate hop and malt flavor with a long bitter finish.

Aroma of a classic American IPA: citrus, grapefruit and orange, but certainly not as overwhelming to the nose as some. The flavor is a little more balanced out and leans more toward the bitter grapefruit with some maltiness to back it up. Finish is somewhat dry.

Pours with a cloudy dark amber and orange body. Aroma is awesome. The aroma is rich with caramel, oranges and some dank tobacco. This smells great. The taste is well balanced. It has orange peels with some toffee and tea. There is also some rich oat cereal. I really like this one. Dark Horse makes yet another winner. I love this brewery, I need to visit again.

What is present in the aroma is great - fresh juiced orange and grapefruit - just subdued. Medium malt body balances more citrus and the fruity finish. Drinks more like an APA - which is not a bad thing at all.

Bottle. Donít let the bottle graphics fool you, this is a good beer. Poured a brilliant amber with a full white head. Tons oí lacing. Nice piney hop aroma. Malt sweetness and a hoppy bite followed by a coppery aftertaste. Dry. Reminded me that summer is ending.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2005
12 oz bottle via trade with SuIIy - Thanks Mike! - Poured cloudy amber with a tall white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine covering sweet caramel malts. Very nice aroma one of the best noses Iíve ever got on an IPA. Flavor has a bit of a malt background but is mostly dominated by the citrus and pine of the c-hops. Palate is medium bodied and pretty crisp. A shade unbalanced to the hop side which I donít mind from an IPA. I really did enjoy this brew. Very refreshing on a hot day.

Small head. Hoppy IPA with some citrus ( Is this citrus odd for an IPA?) . Good but nothing spectacular.
