3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
( 12oz bottled on 7/22/08 reviewed 6/4/09 - thanks to bobby91w and sprinkle) Pours a beautiful orange color, full 1 finger head with thick oily bubbles that recede quickly, but coats the top of the beer most of my drinking session. Lacing on the glass is pretty nice as well. Smell is absolutely delicious. Itís floral, very citrusy, but the hop notes have subsided quite a bit. Taste is not even as hoppy as a pale ale at this point, but still a very good beer. Nice sweet malt backbone here, notes of hops are there but no bitterness whatsoever, even some caramel malt here because the hops are so subdued. Body a little thinner than expected, decent carbonation, not enough creaminess or oilyness that I prefer in an IPA.

31/10 0.355 l bottle courtesy of ogivlado, great thanks for sharing! It poured slightly hazy golden orange body with tiny head. Cascade hops (citrus fruits) and some malt in aroma, not too strong though. Flavor is bitter, but not too much, itís pleasant orange fruity, high quality hops are felt in every aspect. Biscuit malt is rounding the flavor. Medium bodied with average, biscuit sweet and herbal bitter finish. Simple but nice beer, I liked it more than I liked Two Hearted ale, although I admit that one is a bit better in quality.

An extra from Eithcubes on our recent trade. Pours a light and dull orange color. Nice hop profile that evolves a bit as you drink through the beer. At first you get intense grapefruit bitterness. Later on down the road it changes to a more pine and resin stickiness. Aroma is mostly citrus. A bit of a sweet caramel working in the background. Pretty tasty for a straight IPA.
