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 great, golden deep yellow color. Aroma is big sweet and hoppy. Taste is bold. Complex body, big sweet up front but a nice deep, complex palate of haps. Great IPA, try this one out, Big, hoppy and sweet and flavorful

BeerBunker (962) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours murky orange with a frothy beige head. Lots of carbonation. Not sure how old this bottle is, as it has tons of sediment floating about in it. Aroma is of citrus, hops, caramel, and grapefruit. Taste is of floral hops, citrus, pine, caramel, and malt. Lots of grapefruit in this beer. Has a nice hop taste, that is evened out by the caramel malt backbone. Not nearly as bitter or hoppy as it could be, but very tasty.

12 oz bottle - Hazy light amber color with medium sized off white head. Aroma has mild herbal hops, slightly nutty, chewy malts, bit of oak. Flavor is fairly malty, bit of hops, slightly oxidized, with a balanced finish. A decent english style IPA, but nothing great.

daknole (10828) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle thanks to Ryan and Felicia. What a delicious beer!!! A very nice apricot pour wtih a mostly white head. Aroma is full of mango and citrus hops. The flavor is wonderful. Citrus hops hit but don’t overpower as the malt swirls on the tongue nicely. Enjoyable, very enjoyable.

bhensonb (13732) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Hazy amber gold color with a slim white head. Aromas of malt and citrus/pine. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is somewhat roasted malt and citrus/pine hop. It is more astringent than bitter/dry, and it is slightly puckerish. Really nice IPA in a malty way.

pkmbeerguy (2) - , Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2009 does not count
Very impressive IPA. As I poured it out of the bottle I got a waffting hop aroma. The color was beautiful and the beer clear. I was affraid that the hops would domminate the beer, but the malt back bone held up. The flavor of malt spiced with hops exploded on the palate followed by a nice long clean finish. One of Michigan’s best IPA offerings.

Bottle. Nose-industrial IPA. Body-dark straw, medium ring of bubbles, thin film of bubbles. Taste-Styrofoam, cottonseed, thin, vinous, soft. Not much of an IPA, but a decent beer.

Bottle courtesy of Guerde – thanks Andy! Pours a murky amber with a 2 finger beige head. The nose is ripe citrus, pine and caramel malt. Taste is tangerine, caramel and orange peel with a bitter yellow grapefruit and resin finish. Medium mouth feel. Very good IPA. Thanks again Andy!
