Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2009 Tasted during outage: Another great American IPA with just the right balance of aroma and flavor so as to not conk you over the head with hops, but they’re there to let you know the beer is a serious IPA. Very drinkable, despite the alchohol. RERATED on 08/15/09... This stuff was super fresh, absolutely killer... the only other IPA that is better is the Yulesmith. Absolutely wonderful pine, grapefruit aromas, crisp, bright, and sublime... color of burnt orange amber, clear... alcohol is hidden very well. It has been over a year since I last tasted this one... and I’m loving it. It’s rare when a beer impresses me even more the 2nd time.

From a 12 oz bottle this poured a clear gold with a medium foamy white head and good lacing. Nose of citrus and piney hops with a nice smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is grapefruit and pines. Long lingering bitter finish. This is great stuff. Glad I have five bottles left.

Bottle… Clear, light golden ale with a small, frothy, white head. Tropical and citrus fruit aroma. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with relaxed carbonation. Fruity flavor with tannic bitterness.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Courtesy Odeed. Pours a clear light orange color, with a small white head. Smells of some big grapefruit hops, very piney, with a crispness about it. The flavor was also very crisp and sharp, with a big hop character and a nice hop bitterness to it. Prety juicy grapefruit citrus was also quite evident. Nice and crisp IPA, full flavored with a great palate. Another quality brew from a quality brewer.

On Tap. Pours with a light, rocky, off-white head covering a clear amber body. Great lacing from the tap left on my glass, decent retention aswell. Aroma is of floral and slightly spicey hops, and a light bit of caramel. Taste is a bit watery at first, then a light caramel and biscut malt, followed by a pine hoppy bitterness towards the finish. Watery mouthfeel, light carbonation.
