Bottled (BB 07/2006).
Golden color, small white head. Bready malty, hoppy nose. Fruity sweetish mildly hoppy - good balance with malts and hops. Good APA, not much IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Deep golden coloured, light hazy, firm lacing small foamy layer; deceptive rich hoppy aroma: aromatic, sweet, herbal, floral....; strong and dry bitter flavour, surprisingly light bodied, fizzy, but smooth mouthfeel, just a little sweetness in the background; very persistant floral hoppy finish, supported by a juicy maltiness. This is the real thing ! A superbly crafted Ale !

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
very bitter, orange, hazy, frothy, minimal head, this is one of my go to beers, it is no ruination IPA, but a very good IPA that is readily available in the midwest.

Not bad. Kind of reminds me of Bell’s Two Hearted Ale excepted maybe a little sweeter. Lots of cascade hops. Eggshell head and orange looking. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml bottle. Golden orange with a glowing haze. Quite a bit of carbonation. Orangey, piney and honey aromas. Clearly huge amounts of hops being used. Citrusy, sweet and sour, and some bitter, flavours. Medium-bodied, but with a good malty sweet body and background. Main focus is hop aroma, with a healthy dose of bittering hops. Finishes slightly dry and not too bitter. Great IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2006 Everything that an IPA should be. Well hopped, but not as complex as Founders IPA or Bells Two Hearted Ale. $5/case less than other top IPAs.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange with a rough big bubble head. Big fruity hop aroma, like a super charged ESB. I nice drinker. Plenty of hops and dusty malt. Flavour has strong fruit notes similar to the aroma. Intriguing.
