Excellent light and smooth but hoppy IPA. Looks beautiful and tastes delicious.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Hazy orange pour with off-white head. Nose is heavy tropical fruity and resiny hops, fruit, honeydew, mango, caramel malt, spicy yeast. Rich and thick on the palate, with tons of hops, tropical fruit, and malt flavors intermingling perfectly. The finish is hoppy, assertive, and smooth. This is a top tier IPA, and I daresay it should be kicked into the IIPA category.

Great hop aroma hit my nose with this first beer of an 11 beer sample session with Steve, CelticBrew and the infamous DrBayern, who I am sure ahs waited to be review #10!!!! It poured slightly cloudy with a nice light lacy head. The first taste gave a nice bite of hops, and the finish was equally as refreshing! An Olympic Gold Medal Winner at MY games!! And NOW, DrBayern may impart his words of wisdom!!!!!

Bomber, $6 here in Bloomington. Nose drenched with citrus (more resinous pineapple and orange rind, but also lemon and lychee), some caramel and bread underneath, and hearty pine needles. Very nice hop profile. A little dusty. Hazy golden pour with orange highlights and a rocky beige head. Strongly bitter taste with lots of orange peel and bread, the Pacman also strong, above the light bread and grain. Dry and musty with freshly squirted citrus on top (grapefruit having moved in to assume dominance, now a touch of muskmelon, too). Earthy caramel and pine. Hops clearly favored over the subtle, warm malt (and I think this is the first time I’ve had Horizon). Lightish body, smooth and creamy with almost no grit, aftertaste and finish still very dry and soaked in hops. Haven’t felt this excited about an IPA since last year’s batch of harvest ales. Holy moly, I need this on tap, now!

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2008
22oz bottle. Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with an averaged to larger sized off white head. The hops hit my nose as soon as I popped this one open. Aromas of pine, citrus, floral, pineapples, tropical fruits, and light caramel. Tastes of citrus, oranges, piney, and a nice grapefruit bitter finish. Caramel there too. Started out lightly sweet and ended nicely bitter. Very nice surprise!

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Bottle from and on tap at brewpub. Pours a thin amber with an exquisite aroma of peachy hops with sweet grapefruit. Flavor is bitter, biting grapefruit and pine sap. Thick and lasting mouthfeel. I’d sprint for another of these. And I hate running.

nuplastikk (4347) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 30, 2009
22oz bottle. Thick orange-tan color, clearly unfiltered. Dry citrus and seawater aroma, very nice. Lots of fruity hop flavor, with a solid malt backbone. Minimal, but lasting head. This is an excellent IPA, full of hop character, while remaining balanced and quite drinkable. Top notch,

Pooks great. Amber with a thick white head. Once the bottle is opened the smell of hops fills the air. On closer inspection the nose is very complex and bring out the strong hop notes. Flavour is great. Now this is an IPA. I taste the amarillo right off the bat which then gives away into deep rich organic flavours. Strong bitterness in the finish. The yeast works perfectly for this IPA. What a great beer!!

CelticBrew (752) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Shared with DrBayern, DoBoy and Steve. 22 oz bomber poured a hazy golden color, forms nice off white foamy head. Aroma was of hops and wet forrest grass. Flavour was of a hop bomb, tons of it. Extremely bitter with a nice citrus accent which blends itself to a near smoothness that teases your palate. Incredible beer!
