COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Enter, if you will, all the glorious aromatic complexity of the hop. This big, bold IPA’s intense multi-hop kick gets a subtle dose of restraint from select Crystal and Carastan malts. For discriminating hop heads.

Doesn’t smell floral hoppy, but looks good. A nice cloudy orange-red. Has a very dry bitter bite Quite nice, but certainly not a session IPA.

IdahoJizake (10) - Nampa, Idaho, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Bottle from Albertson’s. Easily noticeable citrusy aroma. Light beige head. Strong, musky hoppiness that gradually rolls away nicely. Bready aftertaste with that distinct slightly thick feeling left in the back of the throat. I like it alot.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2006
Pours hazy amber, thin off white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, sweet, light malt and a little alcohol. The taste has a little bit of everything, nice malt, sweet berry hops, citrus, pine and nice bitter finish. Nothing is overwhelming, bitterness does linger a little bit. This is a decent middle of the road IPA.

Gomaster (2) - Bellevue, Washington, USA - OCT 9, 2006 does not count
A wonderfully hopped IPA which stands alone (or lies alone) without food accompaniment. Wonderful rich amber color and smooth pour, but without enough head. rich citrusy notes and crisp finish.Ummmm

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Hazy amber color,small off white head that had a decent hangtime then faded slowly to leave a slight lace behind.The aroma was hoppy with a nice citrus side and some notes of pine and light malt.The flavor was pretty good,light malty side some grapefruit a bit of caramel and a hint of pine notes to go along with all the hops.Very nice brew,not as good as the avery i just had but decent enough for another go around.

TheBeerGod (5254) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Draft at Falling Rock.Hazed copper. Nose is big hops, citrus fruits, light toffee, caramel, and slight pine notes. Taste is more citrus fruits, bigger toffee, chewy malts, earthy hops, light alcohol and some evergreen. Body is resinous but medium and sticky in spots. Finishes with more big hop bitterness citrus notes and chewy malts.

joergen (20810) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2006

sistinas (101) - Mountain View, California, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a medium head that leaves some decent lacing. Super hoppy aroma with notes of citrus and pine. Taste is dominated by bitter hops, a little caramel. White grapefruit flavors and finish give it a bit of harshness that I’m not particularly into, as I’m more apt to throw the things at people than eat them. I’d have liked a little more sweetness to balance it out, but decent overall.

Svesse (6159) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2006
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 30 Sep) Dark amber colour with small head. Fruity nose with powerful hoppy aromas, notes of grapefruit, pine needles and resin. Fruity, seriously hoppy, taste with grapefruit, pine needles, resin and harsh earthy hop flavours in the finish. Starts sweet, turns drier towards the finish, medium body. Very hoppy and very nice.

12oz bottle shared courtesy of zrrbrrt. Poured a dark orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of oranges, citrus, floral and caramel. Tastes followed the same with a grapefruit finish. I liked the balance in this IPA.
