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.

Pours a frothy white head, yellow amber body hue that is slightly hazy. No malt aroma, it is covered up by a heavy very cheesy, slightly citrus, and slightly floral (roses?) hop character. Peach and pineapple smells are also present. The initial flavor is a punch to the mouth of strong hops that seems exciting from the lively carbonation. The flavor is cheesy and not citrus hops. The flavor moves into a slightly sweet feels and finishes better, almost nasal clearing, but not quite overpowering. The body is medium-heavy with an oily texture. It has a hard bitter finish feel, but in a good way.

Sweet caramel and light hops in the nose. Very subtle hops, tons of citrus. High drinkability. Balenced beer. really enjoyable.

Strykzone (6561) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Enjoyed at the Rotten Apple. Poured a cloudy light brown with a small white head that has little retention. Aroma was pine, grapefruit, and caramel. Flavor highlighted the grapefruit and pine was in the background. Somewhat on the sweet side but a straightforward IPA. Very nice caramel sweetness and nice bitterness. An enjoyable IPA.

pours murky clouded yellow with strong florals in the nose. well bittered but with an almost ’dirty’ element echoed from the appearance. this is off the beaten path amongst the 1000s of IPAs out there. had this a couple times in bottles and was unable to come up with anything profound enough to warrant a review (might still be having that trouble) but on tap at the brewpub it was a bit of a revelation and just moved up the ranks of my favorite IPAs and beers in general.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Bottle from Fly. Thanks, man!
Pours a thick, cloudy, inviting cheddar orange with a delicious aroma of melon-infused grapefruit. Notes of peach nuts dropped in pine tar are noticeable in the background. Flavor is grapefruit adopted by a family of roasted nuts soaked in cereal. Nice, thick mouthfeel. Pretty good stuff.

Hops Hops Hops - Love it! Nice flavor - crispy - outdoors and piney. Mouthfeel is perfect for me - nice carbonation - aftertaste stays with ya. In my books- this is a very good IPA

draft in Deetwah City. Yum. Did I say yum? Very well balanced hops profile. Some IPAs scream aspirin. This is a beer that has no flaws and just plain nails an IPA style. Not too biter, not at all boring. Good aroma, nice lacing.
