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.

Bitter hop aroma with a good malt backbone. Amber brown in color with a white head. Bitter floral hop flavor with a lasting finish.

12 oz. bottle in trade from douglas88- many thanks! Served in shaker- poured a transparent brownish amber, low carbonation, 3mm white head formed and tried to lace. Hearty aroma of pine, grapefruit, and floral hops everywhere. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt has been slightly roasted, bitterness in the middle followed by an acidic finish. Slightly different take on the style, but still very enjoyable.

Dark in color for an IPA. Medium head. Tastes of roasted malt. The bitterness is slightly different tasting.

Whorst (15) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - SEP 5, 2008
Unusual, and off balance. The malts don’t work for me. There’s an astringent, charcoal like bitterness that I can’t stand.

Amber beer with an off-white head. Aroma is faint grapefruit. Flavor is roasted malt and grapefruit bitterness. Finish is bitter. Good IPA.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2008
Bottle from BSF Bar, GBBF ’08. Amber with a small off white head. Aroma was initially grapefruit, later revealing sweet malts. Piney hop and malt taste in which creamy, buttery sweetness blends with sharp bitterness. Beautiful.

wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Good. Pretty strong caramel malt presence. Pretty bitter citrus hop flavor with a lingering bitter finish. Some alcohol taste comes through. Lightly carbonated and very drinkable. Thick mouthfeel for an IPA.

BillKismet (3334) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Picture perfect salmon-tinged amber pint with ample tan head of foam and fluff. Enjoyable citrusy and fruit punch burst in the nostrils along with some mild hop resin. Starts easy on the palate, but then raw, leafy hop notes and moderate to strong bitterness takes the stage. Resilient btter-sour twang on the back of the palate. I would conjecture there is a healthy dose of Chinook hops in this one.

DonKi11uminati (80) - , Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a nice frothy head and good lacing. Aroma is floral with citrus and hops, and inviting. Palate is light to medium with little carbonation. Hops and floral notes shine through in the flavor with some noticeable malt. Clear and clean flavors finish with lingering medium bitter hops. This is an enjoyable and refreshing beer.
