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.

Big thanks to tytoanderso for the bottle!
Pours a hazy dark orange color with a lasting whitish head and nice lacing. Smell is a unique musty and fruity smelling hop character. Taste is moderately bittered and similar musty fruit flavors with perhaps some mango. Not a very clean flavored IPA in my opinion with the citrusy character I get in lots of IPAs, but still nice. Body seems full but the low carbonation still makes it seem almost watery at the same time. Unique, and drinkable. Solid IPA.

A very nice IPA. The first thing you notice is that you cannot see through it, a darker color that is not filtered. The head is moderate, cream colored, and lasts a long time. Tastes of dry hops, a lot of it. There is nothing weak about this beer.

Thanks tytoanderso. Pours a hazy rich amber. The aroma is very fresh and hoppy, citrusy, wet hops, spicy and piney. The flavor was nice and waxy, grapefruit peel hops, mandarin orange, spicy. Sweet. Nice waxy palate. Easy to drink and very tasty.

Cloudy orange coloration and typical IPA taste. Ití ok, but not as interesting as Hopslam. I would like to try the double IPA soon.

Courtesy of unclejedi. Pours out a gorgeous combination of peach, orange and caramel brown, topped by a 2 finger thick, sudsy off white head. Very good retention and some nice drip lacing. A thick layer of craggy foam sits atop the beer for quite some time. Nose of grapefruit juice, oranges, caramel/toffee malt, pine cones, grassy fields and hay. First sip is heavily astringent on the tongue, followed by a deliciously acidic and tongue curling bitterness from the hops; grapefruit, oranges, lemon zest, grass, hay and caramel candy are all present. Mostly though this is an unforgiving hop bomb. Medium bodied, very oily and slick on the palate. Dries out your mouth, leaving you parched after every sip and needing more. Finish is super lengthy, acidic hops, citrus, backing malts and fresh cut grass. Outstanding IPA.

Golden in colour, translucent, smooth and tasty! I would like another for sure. Like others I got a real pine flavour.

Courtesy of Secret Santa 2007....cloudy copper pour with light head. Pretty standard session IPA. Pine/citrus flavor thatís well balanced, could easily drink several. Solid beer. Thanks Santa!
