COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bright golden, with citrus flavor and an aroma that combines notes of grapefruit, orange zest and a touch of the tropics. Like a warm ray of sunshine on a cold winter’s day.

Clear old copper pour with a 2 finger creamy off white head. Aroma is loaded with sweet citrus and mango and passion fruit forward tropical fruit, floral and light toasty malt. Flavor is lightly sweet caramel and biscuit up front, sweet fruity esters, some citrus, tea like, earthy and light tropical fruit hops, kinda plain compared to the aroma. Light to medium body, neutral to slightly syrupy, but dry feel and light, but blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation. Good stuff overall, but it’s one of those IPAs that smell really good at first, then are a little disappointing at first sip, then the best parts of the aroma seem to fade away as well leaving a good beer that is still somewhat disappointing. Sorta flash in the pan scenario.

Pours coppery with an off white head. Aroma is citrusy hop. Flavor is a nice balance of citrusy, fruity hop and caramel maltiness with a light lingering bitterness.

boto (1891) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Draught @ Brewery: This one pours a crystal clear copper color. There was about a finger of off-white lacing that left a good deal of lacing. Good nose. There was a good whiff of citrus hops. Some grassy notes also. It has a nice taste. Good malt body, along with a good hop bite. Very smooth and well balanced. A very good IPA.

UDBeernut (1853) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle from unclemike. Pours amber with a off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Like gobs, totally coats my glass. Nose of toast, caramel, and lots o’pine. Ample bitterness charges like a bull on parade. Finish is the pine express. Dry and lingering. Body is solid.

Grapefruit and pine resin aroma. Bitterness pretty much overwhelms the malt.

Bif (1561) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pours a deep golden color with a good head that lasts with ample lacing. Aroma of citrus, some pine with malt sweetness and touch of spice. Taste of citrus, malt, caramel sweetness with bit of spice and grain. Nice bitterness just a bit of lingering pine aftertaste. Medium body, crisp, clean and refreshing. Nicely balanced. Verry enjoyable beer worth checking out.
