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.

12oz bottle from EithCubes - thanks, Mike! Tart and grassy IPA, something that kind of appeals to me these days. Heavily hopped and with a rich mouthfeel, Iím liking the contrast between fullness and dryness. Nice stuff.

12 oz. bottle. Very lively carbonation - nice frothy white head...very dry and crisp. But the flavor is way off - tastes like dirty bitter water. Very dirty. Not an enjoyable flavor on this one, I could barely finish it. Hopefully I didnít get a skunked up bottle.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Thanks to Shigadeyo for sharing this one at the Tennessee Spring(ish) Tasting held in Knoxville, TN on 3/10/2007. This hazy gold brew throws up a frothy white head. Floral, spicy hop aroma. The flavor is bitter with malt taking a second row to the hop performance going on here. Creamy and bitter with some dryness that builds in the finish.

kramer (4895) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2007
12 oz bottle, via sliffy. Pours a very hazy copper body under a quickly fading off-white head that faded to a partial covering of film. Lots and lots of sediment here. Aroma of grassy and lightly citrusy hops with a light pale malt accent. Quite a bit of yeast also. The flavor is pretty light on the hops, with just a slight bitterness on the finish. Doesnít seem very lively. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a thicker feel to it than I expected. I think that the heavy amount of yeast has alot to do with the fullness. This was OK, but I think that the super heavy yeastiness dulled the hops out too much.

Darkover (1513) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Hazy orange color with some floaties and a big long lasting off white head. Aroma of citrus hops and tootsie rolls. Flavor of citrus hops, black pepper and tootsie rolls.

biggenius29 (155) - Hamilton, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Bottle, pours amber/orange with a average frothy white head with good lacing and a head that sinks away to a slight film on top of the beer. Looking at the glass it looks very muddy with medium particles floating around. This one is bottle conditioned. The aroma is all hops, citrusy hops. Takeing the first drink it is quite hoppy. Citrusy and piney hops. There is not much to the malt, it is all hops. The body is light to medium with a dry and creamy texture with lively carbonation.

jake65 (2600) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Bottle: Hazy orange with a modest off-white head. Nice lacing. Nose is very hoppy with both citrus and pine, some malty sweetness. Taste is heavy on the floral and piney hops, some citrus present. Lingering caramel into a dry, hoppy finish. Thanks to Eithcubes for sending this in trade.

12 oz bottle pours a murky burnished orange body with a nice beige head that leaves sticky lacing. Aroma is fresh leafy hops and prominent grapefruit. Bitter grapefruit and orange citrus dominate the taste. Medium body and somewhat abrasive carbonation. Subtle malt presence. Grapefruit really runs the show here. Not bad.
