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.

Tmoney99 (10590) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Bottle at casino steakhouse in Las Vegas. Poured clear copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus hoppy aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and flat carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. This is a solid drinkable brew.

Crushed with Jakebra. Lots of sweet malts in this one, and subtle hoppiness on the nose. Flavor is also sweet, but a solid bittering hop finish makes this a pretty decent IPA. And it made Jakebra sing.

Plamadude30k (122) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 29, 2009
Reddish copper with a yellowish foamy head. Very hoppy with a great backing of grapefruit, making it rather bitter. I find it is more enjoyable very cold and in a cold glass.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is pretty much evenly matched between caramel and a very nice grapefruit hop note. Hoppy flavoring with a nice citrus presence and very little malt. Tasty little brew, very easy going for a west coast IPA.

sebletitje (6648) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2009
courtesy of goodzoid10. pours copper with tan / beige head with some excellent lacing. Aroma has a good kick of floral hops, and slight fruity undertones. Taste is hoppy with light bitter finish and notes of fruits - grapefruit / strawberry. Leaves a nice velvety, almost syrupy lingering feel. Overall, a well balanced beer with nice use of light caramel malts.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2009
I’m a sucker for heavily hopped American IPA and this one is in my favorite style. Heavily hopped in the nose and the taste, with a long bitter finish. Hops are bitter and citric, like a serious slam of grapefruit rind. Balanced with sweet malts. Reminds me of a Double Dead Guy, but with bonus points for being what is now considered low-to-moderate alcohol levels in a super-bitter IPA.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Bottle, seemingly a bit old. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, mango, melon, caramelized brown sugar. Flavor shows the hops a bit more with the mango and some fruity, berry qualities. A bit harsh on the tongue. Some good qualities, some less.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2009
12 oz bottle. Poured a slightly cloudy orange color with a two finger white head. Aroma was malty with a citrus note. Flavor was malty with a serious bitter bite. Good beer.

LilBeerDoctor (3442) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep cloudy orange with a small foamy white head. Aroma is quite malty with raisins and slight bitter hops. Flavor is sweet and malty with floral hops in the finish. Harsh palate. Too malty for an IPA. 6/4/6/3/14 (3.3/5)

Beer pours copper with a slight white head and slight haze. Beer has a citrusy grapefruit hop aroma. Beer flavor has an excellent hop flavor that hangs on the palate throughout the swallow. There is a slight indication of malt presence, but very minor. Palate is very nice without having too much stickyness or dryness. Overall beer is a nice IPA and I would definatley have this again.
