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.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Bottle from pepsican. Hazy orange brown. Awesome fluffy head. Floral and grapefruit aroma with a small amount of caramel malt. Citrus and pine hops make up the flavor with light caramel malt. Lingering citrus bitterness. A touch resiny. A nice IPA.

Hoptiludrop (9) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2008 does not count
Brownish orange in color. Hazy since it is unfiltered. Very subtle hop aroma. Flavor is mainly of pine. Good lingering bitterness. This IPA is good but not enough for me to crave another bottle.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - DEC 28, 2007
12 oz. bottle via trade with tytoanderso - Pours a hazy amber color with a thin off white head. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is floral, citrus, pine, and faint toasted malt. Flavor is citrus and pine hops, and toasted caramel malt. Not as balanced as many other IPAís. Palate is a tad thin and lingering. Light to medium body. A good IPA. Thanks Tyler.

MrBunn (2460) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Bottle. Pours a murky orange/brown color with about two fingers of beige head. Aromas are crisp citrus and pine... almost like spring cleaning or something. Flavor is very heavy on hops... with a nice crisp, clean edge to it. It is a really refreshing take on an IPA, that I find myself liking. I canít figure out why, though, since the malt presence isnít quite enough to support all that hops and yet it works. I could drink more of these.

franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours a ruddy tangerine with visible sediment and a frothy tan head that dies slow. Lacing occurs in full sheets all around the glass. Smells nice and citrusy with mean hops and a little yeast and malt. This is mean at the start with a rindy hop bite followed by a pure balance of yeasty sweet malt. Best of both worlds. Medium in the mouth and drinkable but DIPA like.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Hazy prune colored pour with a very small white head the vanishes almost as soon as the pour is finished. Nice white lacing. Floaties throughout the body. Nice hop filled aroma. Some citrus and alcohol in flavor.

sthlm (1231) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2007
[Bottle] Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is about what I expected with it being very citrusy. Taste likewise has a lot of citrus in it with some malt also present. Not overly bitter. Good mouthfeel. Pretty good, but not spectacular.

pepsican (1447) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Pours a dark amber with a thick head. Malty, citrus, hops in the nose. Taste is similar but very subdued from the last time I tried it. I think this one isnít quite as fresh as it should be. Still very drinkable, goes down medium and smooth.

islay (1135) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Small serving during 11-30-07 tasting at the Lex-Larp Cellars as I joined joet and the Twin Cities crew. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Double-IPA-like aroma of citrus (lemon, lime), apricot, and salt. The aroma also has a malty sweetness. Pours a hazy orange-tinted brass/gold, reminiscent of apricot nectar. Beautiful, cream-colored head. Classic American IPA hops-derived flavors: Pine, gin and tonic, lemon. Does not stand out in the IPA crowd in taste. Light dry finish and aftertaste. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Dark Horse Crooked Tree IPA is not bad but utterly forgettable. It has a promising appearance and aroma, but the flavor disappoints.

Skyview (5215) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Sampled at Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a hazy caramel amber brew with a creamy off-white head that has some good retention and lacing. Aroma of citrusy zest, pine, some caramel malt, and roasted nuts. taste is medium bodied, some carbonation and plenty of citrus bitterness that shocks the tongue for a few minutes. Finish is just as bitter citrusy as the taste.
