COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with the finest organic malts and hops, our IPA features a bright-minted copper color and a crisp, yet smooth hop bitterness. Pale and crystal malts come through with a malty caramel sweetness, balanced with aggressively clean burst of fresh hop flavor in the middle palate without lingering bitter astringency. A strong floral and citrus character from generous dryhopping blends with strawberry esters from our house yeast strain for an inviting and satiating aroma.

First of all I like this beer. Itís being seen around my area more, and is a good IPA. but... The color is a little more orange than i think a IPA should be. I feel an american IPA should be rather pale [my version] golden to even straw colored. The nose is surprisingly malty very malty. However, this is no west coast hop-head IPA. Nice creamy head that lingers for awhile. It has a good full mouth-feel, and has adaquate hop bitterness. Great aftertaste. I think one of itís big claim/goal is itís certified organic wholeness. [and iím ALL for that] A great session beer, and one to have on hand in the refrigerator.

Bottle. Amber colored, slight haze, with small white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy, can smell caramel. Flavor is fruity and malty, with strong hops in the end. Dry aftertaste. Fairly good.

hayduke (3465) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Poured a copper color with a long lasting off white head. Strong nose of malts and hops, with floral overtones make this a nice one to just sniff. Smooth on the tongue, and easy going down. I would prefer a little more hops for an IPA, but that is my only quibble.

Cornfield (5544) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Hazy copper with a tall creamy head that does some lasting lacing as it slowly fades away, this has a hoppy aroma of pink grapefruit and orange petals with a touch of caramel sweetness. The caramel emerges in the flavor but is still overshadowed by the citric hops that remain for a satisfying, lingering bitter finish. Quite good.

Pours a glowing copper with a off-whie head. The hops were very aromatic, fresh and crisp, lighter on the citrus side but picking up a bit more on the herbal side. The thing that seems to ruin this beer though is the malts, not sure why but their organic malts seem to give these beers a funky dusty flavor. Other than that some light caramel notes up front with a bit of apricot fruitiness in the finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Poured a dark copper color with a medium off-white head that last a long time. Aroma has some citrus, some earthiness, some caramel. A little sweet. But out of all that it just doesnít do it. Definitely better on paper. I think I got it, some butterscotch is coming out. Malty front , acidic middle and moderate bitter finish. Again sounds better on paper. Slippery mouthfeel (diacetyl). My mouth keeps telling me to pour this one down the drain but I donít have another beer ready in the fridge. I am getting sad.

Pours a nice amber color. Aromas of caramel malt, hops, and a touch of citrus. Flavor is nice and hoppy with a nice bitter aftertaste. Couldnít believe it was 7% alcohol.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2005 Pours a deep orange color with a lasting white head. Fairly citrusy hop aroma with a bit of malt backing and pine. Good hop character comes out in the flavor with a nice balanced malt backing. Citrus, pine, some apricot. I didnít find the alcohol to be noticeable at all. Plain and simple, this was a solid IPA.

Bottle. Light amber colored and clear. Insignificant white head forms and leaves no lacing. Light aroma of malt and hop. Light bodied. Very soapy, I have just began experiencing this and the sensation has been in IPAís and especially organic IPAís. The soapy feeling/flavor detracts completely from any malt or hop presence.
