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.

Hazy orange amber with a bright white head and moderate lace. Understated grassy hops aroma. Slight bitterness offset by a pretty solid bready malt sweetness. Light body, lively carbonation, and a clean finish.

Bottle. Pine hop aroma, cloudy deep gold, tall foamy head. Medium body, lots of malt caramel comes out. A balanced IPA that is not overpowering in bitterness.

No bueno. I started this account to read and make a review on this brew. Literally could not get thru my 2nd bottle of the 6-pack. Had to run to the store for my local IPA from lagunitas.

So this one looks great with the golden color and nice lacing. Good forming head upon poor. Smells good of hops and floral notes but does have a bit of a lasting taste and not so great finish. Good brew, not great.

Bottle. Taste is mild citrus, pine, hops and hay. Smooth and easy drinking.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2012
The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma has some perfume-like hop notes, as well as some light orange citrus. The flavor is a nice mix of orange citrus and biscuit malt, with a hint of bitterness. There is also a little grapefruit in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured a nice light copper colour, with a huge fluffy white head. Heavy nose of pure hops, but the taste was much more subdued.

BucannonXC5 (796) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 25, 2012
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Aug. 24, 2012 (picked it up in a six-pack for $9.49 at Kiel’s in San Diego on Aug. 24, 2012). Poured a dark caramel with caramel laced white head. Thick, white foam on the sides, good retention on the top. Really liked the smell. Got citrus hops (lemon, orange, peach) and floral hops up front. Then got some caramel malts. Tasted a raw version of the smell. Citrus hops (orange/tangerine) and more of a caramel malt backbone. A bit grainy and heavy. Something slightly off. Medium body. Creamy texture. Above average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. Gets old after a bit. Not a bad beer, it had its moments. The look and smell had me hooked, but something was off with the taste.

Hazy amber beer, little white head. Dry palate. Caramel malt. Bitterish tangy hops - orange and grapefruit. Bitterish aftertaste. Not too bad but lacks a little coherence.
