12 oz bottle from a trade with Linus_Stick. pours orangish brown with an everlasting off white head. hoppy aromas with caramel malts. flavours are similar. this reminds me of almost all the other american IPAs ive had but it wasnt over the top. body was just a touch thin. i dont understand the low rating on this one unless i got the best batch ever made. id happily purchase this brew if it were availible in ontario. thx linus!

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Clear orange in color with a small off white head. Aroma: floral and light citrus, with some grain, light honey and some crystal malts. Taste is mild floral and citrus hops, with grain and crystal malts/caramel. Body is alright for the 6.5 ABV but the hop character is nowhere near assertive enough. Ugh, clean, no flaws that I could pick up but not something I would revisit in a bottle.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Poured a clear deep gold with a small white head. The aroma is fairly floral with just a little sweet almost sugary caramel malt sticking out. Some citrus under that. The hop flavor is earthy with some citrus. Cereal and caramel notes. Light bodied with a dry liight but long bitterness.

blipp (5680) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Bottle. Pours gold with an off white head. Grassy and floral hop aroma. Medium body. Flavor starts with a quick hint at sweet caramel, but quickly move to a grassy/floral hop bitterness that lasts for quite awhile. It’s drinkable.

Pailhead (4416) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Bottle: Aroma is a mixture of oranges, hay, caramel, light fruit, and the slightest hint of grapefruit hops. The aromas do not mesh too well. It pours a transparent amber wtih a moderate creamy orange-tinged white head that leaves behind some nice webbing for lacing. The flavor starts with caramel and orange flavors with a very mild grapefruit hopped finish. There are more hops in the aftertaste than the actual flavor. Light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and slightly creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, but a pretty ordinary IPA.

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2008
Had this at the Harrisburg brewfest. Quite a yellow color, not much off-white head. Aroma was mostly pine resin, not much citrus. Very long finish. Was very dry and crisp mouthfeel. Overall a decent IPA, but not outstanding.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 26, 2008
Bottle from Bello Vino in Ann Arbor. The body is medium copper with a yellowish khaki head. The aroma has some light dough and almonds. Behind that, you get a little bit of earth and grapefruit. The taste has mostly toasted almonds with a strong herbal note in the finish. You only get a brush of citrus as you are drinking this one. Decent, but closer to an amber ale.

Draft. Pours a light copper/amber color with a small white head. Aroma of piney&citrus hops with notes of light grapefruit. Flavor is light caramel, piney, floral and a touch of some fruit with a bitter hop finish
