SamP01 (652) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Poured into a shaker glass a clear coppery amber with a medium white lasting head, with good lacing. Aroma of floral piney hops, caramel malt and some citrus notes fill the senses. Taste is of floral piney hops, grapefruit and citrus notes along with some caramel malt flavor. A medium smooth body with good carbonation on the palate. The finish is sweet caramel malt, citrus notes followed by some good floral piney hops on the end for balance. Flavor and aroma of caramel malt becomes stronger as it warms up. Overall a very good well rounded and tasty IPA.

My go to IPA. Can’t think of single thing wrong with it. Didn’t get a perfect score because it’s not the Double Jack.

Aroma is a mix of piney hops and an undertone of citrus hops. The flavor is heavy grapefruit, mild citrus and a malty backbone. Solid IPA.

topher_78 (28) - California, USA - MAY 7, 2012
This brew pours a beautiful light copper color with 1 1/2 fingers of an off-white head and good lacing. The aroma is of citrus and pine with a light hint of malt. The taste is of orange rind, pineapple and balanced well with sweet malt. The aftertaste is nice and slightly dry and beckons another sip. One of the best single IPA’s period.

Bottle. Pours a nice golden orange color with a white head. Aroma is of grapefruit, sweet citrus fruits like orange and tangerine, peach, sweet and caramel malt. The flavor follows the nose with lots of orange and tangerine, some peach, grapefruit, sweet and caramel malt and biscuit notes. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty tasty IPA.
