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.

mkel07 (3119) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2014
On tap at Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from August. 2013. Nice IPA this one with a good balance of hops. Not over the top ridiculous in the hop department.

Prokroustis (682) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUL 7, 2014
Cloudy amber body with particles and a white head. Very nice strong fruity hoppy aroma with grapefruit, orange, mandarin, caramel, red grapes, a bit apple and pine. Realy nice, brilliantly balanced flavour with caramel, red apple, strawberries, pine, pear and mango.

Light amber color with a one finger head. A nice citrusy and hoppy aroma. A good mild taste of hops, citrus and slight pine. Good but not outstanding. Definitely try it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barnoloid (139) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Draft served at The Winchester, Grand Rapids. This is a finely balanced IPA. Pours a deep amber/caramel color with plenty of liveliness to the carbonation and the appearance too. Very drinkable, with a good depth of hop flavor and very slight citrus undertones.

This may be better than the Crooked Tree Double. On draft at the Railroad in Linfield. The beer poured a dark yellow-straw color, but didn’t have a whole lot of head to it. The flavors were outstanding, though. This is one delicious beer. I tasted lots of pine and citrus notes, along with the spicy and floral hops. The beer is balanced quite nicely with a generous helping of toasted malt and caramel. This is an excellent IPA.
