COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Just shy of an Imperial IPA, this dry hopped beer is soon to become a favorite for American hop-heads. Low to moderate malt character blends nicely with the combination of Chinook, Centennial and Cascade hops. ABV 7.0%

From my days when I could go to the brewery. Solid pale ale. Golden. I like mine hoppier, but I love Dragonmead all around.

pours a nice amber color with a decent sice head and lots of lacing. Aroma is grassy and has lots of hops. Flavor is again very hoppy and pleasent. A very good beer from Dragonmead!

Appears a copper color with a lush ivory head and tons of scattered, streaky lacing. Nice retention. Smell is buttery with citrus hops and a light bleach aroma lingering. Taste is buttery citrus hops with some butterscotch and mild malt. Mouthfeel is crisp and hoppy but sort of weak.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2005
On tap at the brewery, listed as 7%. Deeper amber color, off white head. Fuller hop aroma, lots of pine and citrus, decent malt backing. The flavor is pretty bitter, light fruitiness lurking in the background. Medium bodied, bitter finish, some drying out. Pretty nice.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Sparkling orange, fluffy white head. Nose was quite piney, with hints of white grapefruit, orange zest, and light florals throughout. Taste practically matched aroma. Balance fell more to the hops side and basically was the name of the game here. Only a hint of sweet malt in the background. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry hoppy finish. A nice drinkable APA to get your hop fix on...

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 1, 2005
pours darker then most pale ales, with a nice thick head. has some fruity tastes to it, gives a hint of tartness then bales out to a more sweet after taste that sticks to the sides of your mouth

jsquire (3537) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2004
On tap at the brewery. Orange red color when I held the sampler glass up to the light. Foamy off white head. Strong hop nose of grapefruit rind and pine forest. The initial sip is met with a hop burn on the tongue. Apple sauce and orange rind flavors with a long lingering citrus hop finish. This is a good PNW style IPA.

Tap. Medium amber color with reddish hues. Great flowery hop nose. Good balance between malt and hop in the taste. On the shy side of medium bodied. Smooth palate.

Pailhead (5036) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2004
On tap: Aroma is rather weak. Only faint hops. Was at the brewery so outside influences could have interfered with the aroma. Pours a dark amber with a little white head. Rather weak initial taste. Lightly malty but very watery. However great hop finish with lots of citrus.
