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.

brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Pours a hazy, dark orange color with a finger length off white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Smells of grapefruit, tons of pine, lemon, floral notes, little carmel or toffee. Dry smell. Taste starts with tons of grapefruit and pine, along with some lemon. Then mellows out a tad with a little sweetness and some biscutiness from the malt. However, the finish presents an abrasive bitterness, along with pine, lots more grapefruit, and some lemon and floral as well. Sort of like a blood orange flavor. Maybe a trace of carmel, but very dry finish. Medium bodied, but on the heavier side. Mouthfeel is very nice: creaminess with good carbonation. This IPA will definitely satisfy a "hophead." One of many great offerings from Dark Horse.

Bottle to ipa glass. hard pour kept a thick off white foamy head that stuck to the glass. Color is a murky orange brown. Nose is really fruity consisting of mango, peach, followed by pine with a similar flavor line up. Nice dry finish, somewhat light body, would like the ho p s more prevalent.

kathouse (1201) - Nevada, USA - APR 25, 2015
Thanks to schlitzfaced. Pours a hazy orange with barely any foam. There is some pine and citrus to the aroma but also a little medicinal. Big hop flavor with grapefruit and resin. Finish is dry and excessively bitter. I like it, just don’t love it.

JakeG (20) - Sherwood Park, Alberta, CANADA - APR 23, 2015
Pours a hazy dark orange with a medium fluffy white head. Aromas of floral hops with a touch of spices. Tastes of juicy hops with enough malty sweetness-- delicious & refreshing. Nice and creamy, medium bodied.

Pours a very muddy looking amber. Nice creamy long lasting head with plenty of lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, a bit floral. Taste follows nose. Wonderful citrusy bitterness. Medium bodied and refreshing. A delicious IPA. A bit West coast in character.

stevoj (2660) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Beautiful pour, lots of floaties in this unfiltered beer. Cloudy, thick amber body capped by a nice creamy off white head. Lots of sediment in the bottle, wish I noted the "unfiltered" sooner so I could have saved a bit at the bottom for a final swirl. Still squarely in the East Coast IPA family, mildly bitter, but also fairly malty. Tastes, great, looks great, finishes well.

Kita (1347) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle, 0.355l. Hazy deep amber color with thin creamy off-white head, fair lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of peach, pineapple, passion fruit, raspberry, caramel and pungent pine. Taste starts with light sweet but rich malt, follows refreshing fruity and resinous with crisp and spicy mouthfeel with bitter finish. Medium to full body, oily texture and lively carbonation in palate. Long hoppy aftertaste made me crooked...
