COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This pale bronze beer is medium in body with intense hop flavor and aroma. Our IPA is brewed in the style of the “west coast” with robust hop character coming from American grown varieties of hops. IPA’s are amongst the most popular craft brewed beers as they have moderate strength and tons of flavor. This is not your Grandfathers beer! 5.9% alcohol by volume, 60 IBUs

Bottle @ Dan’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks Armin. Golden orange appearance with an off white head. Somewhat spicy, herbal, grassy, light lemon aroma. Herbal, grassy, a bit minty, lemon citrusy, light grapefruity hoppy, earthy, fairly fun beer.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, pour is orange with white head, aroma has notes of biscuit, bread, some grass, pine, hints of grapefruit, orange but some slight biscuit as well, mainly grass. Taste is some sweet biscuit, grass and pine, hints of orange peel, lemon, touch of caramel, finishing fairly bitter but a touch of sweetness. Eh.

SpringsLicker (3152) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Pours clear gold with a substantial off-white head. Fresh piney citrus hop aroma. The flavor balance is bitter but with a good malt underneath. I’ll have another.

Spruce aroma and hop flavor. Very well "balanced" ipa. Palate leaves you wanting another and another and another.

guzzler67 (1507) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Clear amber appearance with an average size white head and good lacing. Spicy, resinous hop aroma paired with bready malts. Taste is more hop focused, with pine and citrus characteristics, but a bit lower on the IBU scale. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. Nicely rounded flavors and a relatively modest abv could make this a good session beer.

Pours a fair copper with a fair white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, citrus and pine. Great IPA flavor, only slightly watered down. Nice aftertaste.

DiarmaidBHK (3418) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Draft at Ironwood. Pours orange with a thin white head. Slight pine sol note on the nose. There’s some bitterness in the finish. There’s more floral piney notes on the tongue. Flavorful but imbalanced.

mansquito (3416) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria tap ($6): Pours a light copper colour with a white head. Aroma is piny hops with a sufficient malt backing. Taste is somewhat bitter. Although this is west coast in character, it is hardly what I would call "west coast" in terms of intensity. It is perfectly drinkable and thankfully, it is not too bitter, so it is rather refreshing. In either case, this is a forgettable IPA.

To me this one is just a standard east coast ipa. Nothing at all stood out to me. Medium to low hoppiness, bland malt bill. Others liked it though.

Lemon zest and lillies on the nose. Crystal clear amber, medium head, nice lace. Overripe orange and marigold flavor. Quite bitter, a little hot. Good combination of citrus and floral hops.
