Pair with flaky grilled fish, creamy pastas and hearty salads. Brewed with 2-Row and Maris Otter malts with Nugget and Amarillo hops then Cluster and Sterling dry-hopped. Original Gravity: 14.3

BVery (6984) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2012

heemer77 (5109) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle. Deep orange tinted gold body with a long lasting bright white head. The nose is fairly lively with grapefruit with some peanuts and apricots. The nose is fruity and very inviting. This tastes a lot like orange peels and bread crust. there is also some dry hay and old books in the finish. A decent and clean dry IPA.

jkwood04 (4175) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 30, 2013
12oz bottle. Looks amber. Aroma of floral/lightly citrusy hops plus a nice pale maltiness. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad IPA, but not the best - they should make it hoppier.

Patrickctenchi (4120) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle: Nearly clear amber with a thin, soapy head. Sweet grapefruit aroma. Very herbal/earthy bitter flavour..... It’s as if all the citrus element went missing between the smell and the taste.... Rather disappointing.

wlajwl (4069) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Aroma is spices and malts. The flavor is citrus, spices, malts and a mix of tangy and mild tartness. Interesting but not incredible.

Bottle, f’real.

Pours a pretty hazy golden color with a big head that leaves nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is malty at first, doughy & lightly toasty, this gives way to a more dominantly floral and citrus hop aroma with some light notes of graham cracker.

The flavor is bordering on aggressively bitter, but there is a touch of malt and graham cracker sweetness in there that add to a pretty good balance. The hop flavor is citrus rind, honestly it’s fairly one noted, but it’s not bad either. I can’t say that I love this beer, but it went down very quickly... Something needs to be more refined in the hop character, but the way the malt plays here is pretty cool.
