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.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 28, 2009
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!

tmoreau (3568) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2011 Pint served, on tap at Lunar Brewing. Clear, copper/amber hue with a small, white head that reduced to a thin ring quickly, but retained some fair dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was orange rind, ruby red grapefruit, some sweetness, and a touch of resin. These followed into a flavor that exhibited a nice malt body, and good hop bitterness into the finish. Decent, refreshing IPA! Same place, different year. More of a cloudy, orange amber, again with nice balance, and some good lingering nature to the bitterness. Nicely even-keeled IPA the next time around!

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle thanks to MatSciGuy - THANKS! The aroma is awesome on this one. Full of fruty, piney hops. Pours opaque copper with a thin amount of head. Flavor is dank, piney resinous hops. Has a profile very much like Blind Pig, but different. Ends on a dry note, that leaves you wantint more.

thejoeshow (232) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a semi-cloudy orange color with a small white head with a nice retention and lacing. Aroma is very heavy citrus hop. There are hints of orange ad grapefruit and just a touch of pine in there as well. Smells like a nice IPA. The flavor is citrusy as well, heavy orange flavors with a nice backing of malt to make it rather balanced. It is nice and bitter and finishes dry with no lingering aftertastes. Good everyday IPA that I could drink a few of in one sitting. I’d try it if you haven’t already.

Bottle. Slightly hazy, light amber pour with little head. Citrusy hop aroma. Flavor more of piney hops; earthy, bitter and dry. Also some notes of citrus and caramel malt.

HonkeyBra (4025) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Orange pour with frothy white head. Nose: Citrus, pine. Flavor is decently bitter, very hoppy. Finish is bitter and dry. Pretty close, though no two-hearted. Still pretty awesome.

ilovedarkbeer (2699) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Dark hazy orange color with no head. Nose: pine, sweat and caramel. Taste: citrus, pine, grassy. This beer is kind of standard and serviceable and does not do anything different IMO.
