Bottle. Light orange with a thin head. Mild citrus and pine aroma that comes through stronger in the taste. Good bitter finish and very nicely balanced.

Bottle pours amber. Not a very strong aroma in my example. Very light aroma of citrus, alcohol, and malt. Not much head retention, medium body. Flavor is nicely balanced between sweet toffee and medium hop bitterness. Bitter finish that lingers nicely. Nicely crafted IPA, but will barely make the cut for some hopheads.

Draught. Itís got a nice hoppy bite; at the bar it has some kind of hop subtitle added on to the lever. Neither as hoppy or complex as a hopdevil or a alpha king, but very pleasant nonetheless. A little sweet and floral, goes down very easy. Itíll wake you up if youíre tired at last call. Had a golden orange tinge and a small but lasting head. Would certainly drink it again if I wanted a hoppy IPA.

Great stuff sent to me by Kramer17801. This 12 oz bottle poured a little more golden that I had expected, but the flavor and nose were right on. Very hoppy and vanillay. Nice hop finish. Great stuff.

Super IPA. Sweet aroma with IPA-like hops. Clear golden amber color. Smooth drinking. Medium nody. Hoppy bitterness, but a little sweet with no lingering bitter aftertaste.

About time I tried this i guess. Aroma isnít very strong, very fruity and sweet. Body is amber with a creamy white head. Taste isnít overly bitter, rather low ibuís for an IPA, but itís nice.

Really nice IPA. Looks nice, clear amber. Aroma is great, of hops and citrus. Medium bodied and smooth. Bitter finish from nice hops. Slightly metalic. Great IPA!

Great hoppy aroma and nice amber pour. Hops up front with a touch of malt to make a good balance. Nice finish that leaves you wanting more.

Pours out deep golden color with a head. Fresh citrus aroma. Nice hoppy flavor; grapefruit, pine with touch of spice. Clean finish. Really enjoy this IPA.

Super aroma and color true is to style. Nice hop flavor. What I like best about this beer is that there is no unpleasent after taste. Itís a little pricey, but a very good beer
