Who doesn’t love the smell of well hopped beer! Pours amber with decent white head. Slightly sweet entry soon changing to a lengthy hop bitterness. Could probably do with a bit more malt!

Cloudy orange soup, looks more like a warm apple Christmas cider than a beer. No bubbles, no lacing.
Intense aroma of freshly mowed grass with summer flowers and dandelions.
Over the top hops. Bitter and astringent, with lots of pineapple, apples, and a sour and acidic finish.
Thick and chewy body.
A struggle to drink, from start to finish. Unsubtle.

Beautiful hoppy floral notes on the nose. Orange pour with a nright white frothy head. Crisp hoppiness mixed with a nice amount of slight bitterness. Very nice finish. Great beer.

Mildly hoppy with a decent aroma, but much boozier and harsh than the original recipe. Drinkable, but not something I’d get again.

(12 ounce bottle) Has a great nose. Pours a copper liquid. This beer is a herbal hoppy taste, with some citrus hops. Good ipa

bottle, Danke Allen! Hazy golden colour with a large white head. Fruity nose. Full-bodied. Intensively nalty with lots of aromatc hops that result in a very spicy character. Bitter-sweet with lots of fruit like bitter orange and citrus fruit. Delicious!

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2010 I’ve been on a streak of buying IPA’s and am considering going in another direction but ales I have not tried keep popping up in local establishments. This one did not disappoint. Very nice flavor and mouthfeel.

12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Golden with lasting flat head and lace. Grapefruity pine aroma. Mild clover honey peach with complex arrangement of perfumy citrus and pine hops in dry bitter finish. Medium body. A rare fresh craft beer from a Long Island Budverage garage. Very good.

Amber color in the glass. Citrusy hop aromas. Big, bold hoppiness on the palate. Very nice IPA.
