COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our India Pale Ale is brewed with an aggressive hop profile derived from Amarillo and Simcoe hops. A blend of Crystal malts creates the backbone which supports the hop character without diminishing it.

EithCubes (5429) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Bottle. Citric hops with a nice bit of malt, sweetish caramel, and slightly exotic fruit – aroma definitely more than passable. Heavily carbonated body with a copper-amber hue and a (massively lacing) fluffy, rich beige head. Body lighter than expected, with light bitterness and a touch of cardboard, wet hops with caramel and vague (but delicious) candyish fruit. Touch of yeast in with the crispness. Dry, bready aftertaste. Medium-full body. Definitely the best I’ve had from these boys - a winner in every category and a solid session.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Bottle: Faint golden color, drank out of a bottle: Nose is dry and husky with some faint C hops, grassy with a bit of pine needles and dry citrus notes. The flavor is thin with a dry snappy malt note and a fairly decent hoppy flavor. Piney with grapefruit, it comes across really nice, but the body and finish don’t hold up as well. Good though.

PhillyHomeBrew (176) - Forest Hills, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2008
yellowish brown body is topped off with a small white head. Smells like a weird blend of malty, wood and a bit of hops. Kind of a hoppy taste. It tastes kind of like they used rotten hops or something.

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - FEB 6, 2008
From the bottle and poured into a pint glass witha good but light head. The color is a clear amber, more see through then should be probably. A pine smell with a bit of bite on first taste. A light body and the after taste is a bit bitter but fades quickly.

GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Pours very nice amber color with off white head. Aroma is relatively weak, mostly citrusy hops with a hint of pine. Flavor is also weak, a little more of the pine flavor comes through than in the scent. Palate is somewhat watery and not enough hops in this IPA.

sgallant (49) - USA - JAN 25, 2008
Unimpressive and flavorless as IPAs go. I didn’t get nearly enough hop flavor that I would expect and the carbonation was a little too strong.

emerica56 (600) - Bristol, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 18, 2008
Although the appearance is really nice the flavor does not back it up. It has a rather weak hoppy aroma, and the finish is nothing extraordinary.They also do not do a good job hiding the booze in it.

Ghett0Gary (23) - Belmar, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2008
pours a nice amber color with a typical IPA nose. would accompany a 23-year old country styled singer from Oregon. Average IPA...the better of the JWD pack.

topherh (1919) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - JAN 15, 2008
12 oz bottle pours a clear amber with a thin white head. aroma is of piney hops and sweet malt. Flavor is of citrus and pine and starts sweet and finishes slightly bitter. Slightly light on the hops by todays IPA standard, but this was actually better than I expected.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - JAN 13, 2008
Pours copper gold with small white head. Nose is slightly skunky, citrusy hops, very thin on the palate but goes down ok, nothing special.
