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

bottle-deep amber color, little head.First taste-spice flavor, different than most IPAs. half point-Little to no head left, flavors are holding up nicely. finish-This beer grew on me as it warmed, its complex, new flavors you dont normally find in an IPA, and i give this brew props for trying something new. Overall i was impressed with the complexity, but i like my IPAs more traditionally.

Tweety (377) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2009
A solid, if not spectacular, IPA. Not a bad beer, although a little too strong to be reasonably sessioned.

The hops come through a beauty on the nose along with faint orange. This was not as in-your-face as a usual american ipa but managed to peak my interest all the same. Got some caramel from the taste and hoppy bitterness that still isnt too in your face.

poisoneddwarf (1844) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUL 25, 2009
12 oz bottle. The aroma and flavor are almost reminiscent of barleywine. Malty in the nose, good balance between hops and malt in the taste. Good, interesting IPA.

Cavie (3898) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Pretty red pour. Clear and nice. Rich sweet notes on the nose. Slightly sour and tart. Big taste of raisin. Dry bitter flavor. Less amounts of hops than fruit.

DiabolikDUB (147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 19, 2009
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.
