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.

Draft at Hop Leaf. Actually, it all makes sense now. I had the Double CT a while back and didn’t understand the character. Not that I do now, but this was actually a very heavy bodied IPA, contrary to the description. Cloudy darkish gold pour. Tons of hops in the nose, citrus and caramel. Thick gooey body with a nice smooth bitterness. Pretty nice and solid, though not in my top ten.

flatmatt (1289) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma not all that strong: citrus, spicy, pine hops. Flavor has some grapefruit citrus and spice, but the malt flavor comes through stronger than expected. Decent bitterness. Nothing bad about it, but bitterness and hop flavors could be kicked up a notch.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2008
12 oz bottle. Poured cloudy orangish gold in color with a medium sized beige head which leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of nice piney hops with a note of grass. Tastes of piney hops, medium sweetness throughout, caramel and grapefruit. The hop taste lingers in my mouth for some time. A solid IPA.

Hop aromas like crazy. Bracing woody bitterness. Slick malty backbone to balance. Like a hundred other really good IPAs, but that’s a good thing!

tagz (337) - Alabama, USA - JUN 22, 2008
bottle. pours orange red with thin but lacy head. pine aroma. good hop flavoring and moderate bitter with a quick dry finish. flavor just drops right off, making it a refreshing and very sessionable ipa. i enjoyed this one thoroughly.

Bottle. Hazy golden coloured with a small white head. Aroma of fruits, hops and pine needles with notes of grass. Fruity flavour of hops, peaches, pine needles and grass. Dry hoppy finish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 18, 2008
On draft at Dark Horse. Pours a copper body with an off white head. Loads of hops in here almost comes off metallic. Not a huge fan of this one.

Mrthirstyneck (341) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2008
Very nice IPA. Like the title states, it has less malty body than most so its very crisp clean and (hops). color was good. aroma was good. A good IPA!

Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of goryshkewych. Pours rather cloudy golden with a white head. Very fresh and very American nose of citrusy hops and peach. Medium body with plenty of fruit and dry hoppy accents with plenty of lovely peach. Yummy. 130608

12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy and yellow with a lacing white head. Solid spiced hops, pinewood aroma. Flavour is dry and hoppy with light caramel malt base to provide just enough balance. Smooth and bitter wooden finish.
