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.

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2010
On draught at the Tap Exchange in San Antonio, TX. Poured an amber/orange body topped with some sticky, off white head. Aromas of piney hops up front, citrus (tangerine) hops toward the end along with a bit of malty sweetness. Sort of odd, unbalanced malt/hop flavor from the get go. Malty sweetness (some caramel and melon) was there, but, the hops were flat. Could have been an issue with the lines or keg. Better than average as served, but, could have been better. Will revisit a bottle or pint in the near future.

Enjoyed from 12 oz glass. Aroma is pronounced in citrus / lemons with a great hop character. Very smooth, not too carbonated, hops outweigh the malts in taste. Just a great IPA.

From notes Enjoyed with some lunch at some bar type restaurant in SF. A: Pours a nice golden colored hue with a nice 1/4 finger head. The head was not tall but it did linger a bit. Nice lace noted. S: This one is all about the hops bold citrus. Lemon and grapefruit can both be detected. T: Hoppy Goodness in a glass. Bold lemon up front which melds wonderfully into grapefruit. Hints of grassy goodness as well. I am sure there are some malt here, but this one screams hops. Hoppier than I remember when I had this one in the bottle. M: Medium in body, bold, snappy carbonation.

Copper orange in color with a very weak head. Nice floral citrus aroma, almost like soap. Mild bitter hops with a soapy aftertaste; kinda sweet and floral at the same time. Interesting. Overall its unique and easy drinking.

Bottles from AttitudeBrew. This pours a copper color with a good sized off-white head. Doesn’t have a massively hopped aroma but pleasant with caramel, toasted grains, and floral hops. No real surprise flavors with a blend of toasty grainy malts and sharp bitter hops. Nice dry finish. Solid IPA.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2010
On tap from the Fort Worth Gingerman. Red orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, and bitter hops. Taste is hops, orange, bitter, and almost peppery. Great, thick mouth feel.

gorditoabd (633) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle. Pours syrupy amber, with great hoppy aromas and decent amount of off-white foam. Pine and caramel pervade the nose, which is light, and pleasant. Taste is very balanced, with medium bitterness throughout, perhaps spiking in the mid-palate before toning down to a quiet finish. Pine, walnut, caramel, and malt are nicely blended here. Nothing stands out too strongly at any point, so nothing spectacular, but an extremently solid rendering of the style.
