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.

355 ml bottle. Clear orange/amber body with a big foamy off-white head. Aroma of citrus/grapefruit. Flavor is sweet, fruity and quite bitter. Medium + body and a fine long, bitter finish. Refreshing, quite bitter, not extreme and well balanced.

Bottle. Smells flowery with a hop scent to it. A nice IPA that pours a nice copper color with a good head.

IrishBoy (3751) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 28, 2008
12 oz bottle from Safeway, Port Angeles and Enniskillen; Nose of very citrusy hops with some background caramel; hazy amber-orange with a medium beige head that doesn’t last long; flavor is hop bitterness with some pine and caramel. Finish of course is bitter!

6 pack bottles, found in Anchorage, July 9. This beer is super hoppy with citrus flavors and I found it very enjoyable. My better half only got 1.5 beers out of the entire 6 pack. If I could get this where we live I would buy it regularly.

LinusStick (2756) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Very nice IPA. Aroma was good with an abundance of citrus nhops and a light hint of caramel malt. Pour was a nice deep dark amber/light brown with a 1 finger near tan head. Taste was nice and mouth puckering bitter. Strong caramel malt in the front that leaves quickly. The hops fill the cheeks and throat with bitter citrus and pine. Decent carbonation. Thanks Secret Santa!

Aquilo (520) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Pours a slightly cloudy amber color. It needed a bit of help to develop a head. Has a very fragrant citrus aroma, with a touch of nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor is initially dominated by citus and walnut, but this is followed by a strong, bitter, stale hop flavor that almost ruins the beer for me. The bitternes is more than made up for by a pleasant, creamy mouthfeel. Nice and silky. Overall, this is very drinkable and enjoyable.

A good IPA. Doesn’t quite have the full flavor of Big Sky or Avery though. Very satisfying and better than most IPA’s.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 13, 2008
On-tap at Churchill’s. Pours copper/amber color with a good sized offwhite head, some lace. Smells subdued, caramelly, earthy hoppy, a bit grassy. Tastes hoppy and malty sweet caramelly, bitterness hits toward the finish, slight grass flavor. FLavors and bitterness linger better than I remember. Medium body, good carbonation.
