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.

I had about 3 or 4 of these last night. Pours burnt roange witha frothy off-white head. Aroma is floral hops, citrus and pine. Flavor has a big citrus and floral hop punch with notes of pine and light fruits. Could have drank this all night as drinkabilty is good with the low ABV. Not as resiny as the Double Crooked IPA. Will buy again.

12 oz bottle into pint glass. Nice woody orange pour with a big off-white head that holds pretty well and leaves some chunky lacing - LOTS of yeast sediment in the pour though... I didn’t expect an 6% IPA to be bottle conditioned. Great inviting floral and resin hop aroma with more malt presence than most IPAs I have had. Flavor and body are pretty reserved but still very appealing - good full pine hop character that develops into a more floral taste in the finish. Bitter but not overly biting bitter. As was the case with BeerBarron (2 ratings below mine), the flavor of this brew definitely grew in appeal and complexity after a few sips. A good soft balance. Light carbonation and a mouth feel. Overall: very solid IPA, highly sessionable. I wish it was my local IPA! Can’t wait to try the double crooked.

Pours a hazy orange with a nice foamy orange head and good lacing. Sweet malts and stingy floral hops, very earthy and piney, some citrus, kinda like hopsoulution in its awkwardness. Grapefruit, peachy, kinda herbally... but at the same time its so earthy and very bitter. Sugary mouthful, medium/full, nice lively but not intrusive carbonation. Finishes dry. Enjoy this more than the double for sure...

12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange copper with chuncks of yeast in suspension. Little head and little lacing. Nice aroma of citrus and floral hops. Taste fallows suit with the aroma and an added light malt sweetness to the background. Like the description says crisp and dry on the palate. Good IPA, although the particulates cosmeticly harmed this beer, there is nothing wrong with it otherwise.

I’m on to my second 12oz of this, and I have to say at first sip, I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy the rest of the glass, but strangely enough, in the hour that I’ve been drinking it, it’s grown on me a lot. The description is spot on in saying that it’s more of a dry, crispy IPA, but with all of the hoppyness of a classic IPA. I should also mention that it’s very piney and smokey, which adds to it’s mysteriously smooth flavor. cheers!

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 20, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours a nice hazy tangerine color with a foamy white head. Yeast particles sink to the bottom, nice to see this is bottle conditioned. Aroma is a nice citric hop burst, mellow but nice (who knows how fresh this is). A strong, vanilla, munich like maltiness underneath balances the hops. A noticeable fusel-like aroma is also noticeable, and slightly distracting. Taste is bitter though smooth, estery with some fruity and grapefuit rind hop flavors. Medium bodied with a dry finish. A nice though flawed IPA.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin white head and visible sediment. Aroma is full, with a heavy dose of apricot and peach hoppy notes, alongside a bit of earthy malt and grain. Taste is medium-bodied and crisp bordering on astringent, with an initially fruity flavor of grapefuit, apricot, and citrus building up to a long bone-dry finish with an almost mineral-like quality to it. A very solid IPA -- a rich hoppy bouquet and a very dry body, but not mouth-puckeringly so.

brewandbbq (269) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 15, 2008
Pours hazy, pale gold with a half-inch head of white. Smeared lacework persists as well as a mostly covered surface. Aromatics lead off with peaches, cut grass, grapefruit, and orange-rubbed moss. Light malt with plenty of tropical fruit and earthy overtones. Almost skunky, but not skunked. Medium bodied, crisp and snappy. The pallet starts with plenty of drying, bitter grapefruit, peach skins, tangerine pulp, and spruce dew. The bitterness rolls on and the beer is bone dry. Mild alcohol notes pull through the bitter fruit pulp, and a faint malt note is present. Finishes with lingering bitterness, grapefruit pith, and a drying mineral profile. Nice above average IPA. It just needs more of the juice in the middle and aromatics.

Draft. Pours a murky orange with a full white head. Tons of lacing on the glass. Nice citrusy nose. The flavor is rich, with a pleasant hop balanced lightly by malt. Very clean finish, with a few lingering hops. Well made.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUL 14, 2008
12 oz bottle: poured cloudy orange with a medium off white head. Lots of yeast floating at the bottom of this one. Big caramel malt aroma with lots of hops sticking out. Flavor is much the same with lots of caramel and hops. Light sweetness initially and a pretty big blast of hop bitterness in the finish. Moderately dry. Good.
