jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Pours orange with a one finger white head. Relatively weak, but still appetizing, aroma of grassy hops. Great malt profile, but could stand to be a little more hoppy. Good session IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2006 Pours an orange color with a thick and lasting white head. Slightly fruity aroma with citrus and apricot along with a little bit of malt. Perfectly balanced IPA in that you get all the hops you want nicely offset by a sweet malty flavor. Slightly bitter citrusy flavor with a malt finish. A fantastic session beer.

Bottle: Clear gold color with a creamy, white head and runny lacing. What is nice about this IPA is itís perfectly balanced aroma and taste. It seems to have fairly mild hops and stronger malts (for an IPA) making it a pleasant beverage for daily consumption. Thanks Indiana_Red for some serious hook up.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2009 Sampler from bottle at Binnyís, Orland Park, Big on hopz, yeah, but hereís a surprise: my sample was pilsener colored. Now maybe I just didnít have enough in my glass. Donít get me wrong, itís still great looking. The lighter malty taste just the extra big hop load come more to the fore, And isnít that what we really want.

MrBunn (2536) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2005
Pours a nice amber color with a little bit of a reddish tint. Head is massive and foamy. Aroma is mild of hops over a grainy pine. Flavor is heavy of malt with a sharp pine taste that gives way to moderate hops... all of which comes together really nicely. Aftertaste is pleasant and brings malt back into the equation, unlike the supremely hopped 90 minute variety. Exceptionally well crafted and blended.

Bottle Pours a slightly hazy pale orange/amber. Dense white head and spotty coarse lacing. Aroma of sweet lightly toasted grains and moderate hop componant. Flavor is a deep maltiness balanced very well with the bold but not biting hops. Feel is a bit thin but soft carbonation and a nice sweet slightly hopy aftertaste. Expected a stronger more bitter beer for the style but am happy with this one.
