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.

Small lacing. Flavor is medium bitter. Tastes of hops, pale malts, slight pine, toasting, and a hint of citrus. Medium body. Oily texture. Soft to average carbonation. Hoppy, light malt finish is lightly bitter.

Poured from Bottle into Pint glass. Pours a clear copper color with a finger of creamy off-white head that eventually develops into a nice layer atop the glass. The nose is filled with mostly citrus and piney hops with some sweet malt aromas. The flavor is bitter hops upfront with some malt and finishes sweet and strongly bitter with a slightly dry finish. The body is medium with a nice amount of carbonation. This is a good beer although it does come across a little hot.

tompete (218) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2009
Thick tan head and clear red orange color. Aroma of floral and citrus hops. Medium body with moderate body. Flavor is almost overwhelmed by bitter hops almost to the point of harshness. Caramel malts also. Very refreshing though. Full lasting creamy bitter finish.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
For some reason I just really, really like this beer. Started with a foamy white head, slight in size, above a body of brilliant and clear dark amber. Hops a plenty in the aroma, and a pleasure it was to inhale this heavenly scent. Taste was marvellously hopped and bitter without being crazy, accompanied by a slightly ’sharp’ mouthfeel. Finished smooth.

beerbill (3562) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2009
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trtade with ditmier. Pours a hazy golden amber with a large off-white head that lasted through mid-glass and laced the glass from top to bottom. Very bright aroma of fresh grapefruit with a few caramel notes as well. The flavor is less fruity and concentrates more on the bitterness. Decent caramel backbone. Bitter finish that does not linger.

scoth (543) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2009
Pours clear orange-amber, with a medium-thin beige head, very fine, lasting lacing. Grapefruit, pine, apricot, and caramel aromas. Medium body, velvety and mildly dry. Flavors of grass, pine, with more apricot. The hops character is fairly subtle and complex. The Medium-strong bitter finish.

pivo (2603) - GERMANY - JUL 3, 2009
Light grassy hop nose, low scumy head, hazy amber. Sweet light caramel malt, big hop end but rounded that fills the mouth. Great west coast IPA.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Bottle from Sun Devil. Pours a dark shade of amber with a soapy tan head -- looks great. Smells of citrus zest and caramel. Tastes of both with additional notes of dates, flour, malt, brown sugar, and bitter hops on the mid-palate. Quite nice.

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Pours ordinary amber with generous, meringue-like jiggly head that retains a thin layer down through the pint. Nose is very fruity with some candyish aromas in there too. On the palate there’s a balance of sweet caramel malt with sharp citrusy hop flavors. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy. Very drinkable.
