Great beer which is worth having more than once. It is great especially nice and fresh at the brewery. It is well worth picking up a growler to enjoy.

Love how the taste lingers. Darker and heavier than my typical grapefruit IPA love, but one of my favorite Fitger's Brewhouse beers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler sample shared with oakbluff. Typical IPA orange in colour with medium carbonation. Classic aromas of white grapefruit, grass clippings, and a bit of caramel malts. Hop forward in the mouth as well, with the citrus, white pepper, and cut grass notes blending with a solid pale and caramel malt backbone. Medium bodied, with a chunky and building bitterness. A solid example of the classic American IPA style, but the bitterness became somewhat opressive by the end of the first pint.

Included in a sampler at the brewpub. Everything in the sampler was solid. I do not remember the particulars for a few of these though.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has some nice citrus scents as well as some nice Carmel/toffee sweetness. Taste is grapefruit and the bitterness builds in the after taste, not bad.

On tap at SPSBF. Pours a clear gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is quite dank with note of onion and pine backed by some sweet grains. Flavor again has a good amount of onion and pine with some underlying sweet grains.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep copper orange with a healthy dose of milky, off-white head and nice lacing and beading. The nose is big on sweet citrus, honey, caramel, really nice. The taste brings waves of all kinds of bitter: grapefruit, orange peel, spruce, some booze, pretty complex, multidimensional. Pretty low drinkability due to its comparatively high bitterness. But all around, a terrific beer.

On tap at the GTMW 2011. Clear amber with a slowly disappearing rocky tan head. Aroma of aggressive resinous hops, floral hops, citrus and crystal malt.

Growler. Pours dark amber with a foamy kahki head that dissipates to a film. Aroma caramel malt and faint grapefruit spuce. Taste is bitter grapefruit and caramel with a faint metallic taste (hoppy bitterness). Palate is medium to full and sticky with a sharp dry finish. Well done IPA!
