COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A big, joyous celebration of all things hoppy (5 different varities). Large flavors and aroma of pine, citrus, flowers, spice, pineapple, and grassiness complimented with a touch of biscuit and caramel backbone. Our most requested beer.

DiarmaidBHK (3408) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Draft at mellow mushroom south. Pours light orange with a slight white head. Not much going on with the nose which is a bit of a disappointment. Slight hints of pine sol on the tongue with some bitterness on the finish but they both seemed subdued. The alcohol is well disguised but there are much better examples out there of the style.

Growler consumed same day. Amber color, massive beige head, solid lacing. Aroma of pure pine. Taste is very bitter pine resin. Rough trade!

A couple 4 oz. pours into a taster glass. 4.0 A: Clear medium orange. About half a finger of creamy, white head. Retention is average with just a touch of lacing. 4.0 S: Mix of citrusy, spicy, and piney hops. Grapefruit, lots of pineapple, some mango, and orange. Malts offer a fairly strong caramel aroma with biscuity malts overall. Nice. 4.0 T: Same fruitiness as listed in the nose, though surprisingly a lot more intense. Malts offer a good bit of caramel and a strong biscuity vibe. Good taste, but too biscuity for me. Light sugary flavor. Moderate bitterness. 3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation, especially for a growler. A bit chewy and could be creamier. 3.5 D: Good beer despite being overly biscuity. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 07-17-2011 19:48:30

Cask at El Rey. Pours amber with thick, white head. Tons of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, and floral hops. Taste of tangerines, grapefruit, and resiny hops. Like hop oil. Creamy mouthfeel. Sweet. Impressed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint at the J Clyde. Ugly brown/orange color. Hazy with an ugly head. Aroma is pine like hops. Hop forward with plenty of pine. Itís held up well a good Malty backbone thatís got a touch of toffee to it. Finishes fairly dry. Full bodied brew. Not bad.

GTAEgeek (1227) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2011
On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours a hazy, bright orange with a medium beige head. The aroma is strong citrus and pine hops, with a bit of grain and malt behind. The flavor is very bitter throughout, with little malt balance. The palate is medium to heavy, astringent and acidic, and leaves a long bitter aftertaste. Overall, this is a better and more complex version of the Good People IPA, with all the abruptness of a west coast IPA.

Growler from Liquor Express. Poured a hazy orange with a creamy off-white head that left good lacing. Floral aroma with a caramel backing. The flavor was flipped with mainly caramel and floral backing. Medium body, creamy and a mild bitterness.

horto008 (161) - Alabama, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Growler from Liquor Express, Huntsville. Brown with slight red tone and almost clear. two finger head that laces the glass. Nose was slightly sour with all the pine/citrus one would expect for an IIPA. Alcohol present all the way through with ample bitterness to counter the sweetness. Very nice, really. Only reason Iím not giving it higher than 4 is the fruit doesnít really push through the bitterness and alcohol...very good but not great.

Draft at J. Clyde Birmingham AL. Hazy dark gold. Huge citrusy hoppy nose. Taste is the same with a nice firm body. Good beer.
