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.

12 oz bottle. Another beer in the rating adventure. Pours a hazy golden color with a finger high white head that is fairly full-bodied and stays for a while, with an immediate smell factor to it (the hops I believe). Smells of fresh hops, citrus, floral arrangement, and some pine. Very crisp smell. Tastes of hops, some pine, and a hint of floral. Very interesting flavor. Fairly smooth going down. Not my favorite IPA, but decent nonetheless.

Maddog (518) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Had in bottles. We finally get them in Dayton, OH at Belmont Party Supply. First had this beer at a SW Mich. Brew tour, and as it turned out, it was the best beer on the trip and this included Bellís and New Holland. This IPA is dark amber, darker than most ipaís and the taste profile is sweet, well balanced and finshes with a floral hop presence that ends a tad on the dry side. Not overly hopped, unfortunately, but still a very tasty, different IPA. Even better on draft.

Thin and hoppy, fair to midland. Needs more booze and hops. Etc. Etc. Etc. Etc.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2009 Pours a hazy orange with full head. Nice hops flavor with a bit of spice. Just enough bitterness to make a nice IPA. Finish is bitter and dry. Itís a nice clean beer. Will definitely have this now and then. Update: Tap at Dark Horse...very solid IPA in every way. Easy, flavorfull drinking.

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2009
Cloudy golden-amber. Big fresh hop nose is spicy, woody with light orchard fruits. This just drips with hops. Pithy, dry, herbal bitterness. Clean. Very dry in the finish. Minimalistic maltinesss and brash hoppiness.

At Detroit Airport. Glowing orange with hazy texture. Thick head. Hoppy and pine nose. Prickly texture. Lots of hops in the flavour. Really good. Tangy, bitter finish.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Nice fresh bottle at Dakís--thank you Ryan and Felicia! Bright luminescent orange with white head. Bright hoppy aroma is full of tropical fruit esters esp. mango. Clean malt backbone. Sweet apples and pineapples too. The flavors follow: a nice grain backbone with a nice texture too. Excellent loving hop, hoppy yum yum.

trayns (246) - Beverly Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2009
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

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.
