4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 17, 2005 This is creeping up the ladder for me as being on of my faves. Brilliant hop combination - you got the citrus, the pine and a wallop of the perfumy variety. Solid malt backbone. This is, indeed, a winner. Plus, I can get it locally to boot!
Major league aroma of pine and sweet hop flowers. Cloudy, deep golden in appearance, nice rocky head flavor with lots of citric hop juiciness.brh to make this world-class, but otherwise this is a very nice IPA. Thanks to the snowtiger for the brew.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 Draught @ Olutravintola Kukko, Kemi. Deep copper coloured beer, white head. Piney and hoppy aroma. Sweetish malty taste with strong dry bitterness. Tasty dry IPA, not a tropical fruity one.

Draft at Sweetwater in Boynton Beach, FL. Tulip. Deep orange brown pour with medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, resin, fresh cut grass. Taste is first hoppy bitterness balanced by aggressive malts. Slightly sweet finish with mild dryness. The pine and citrus come through nicely. Really enjoyed this IPA from GD.

Bottle (12 oz). Thanks Tom! Clear orange with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma is of caramel/malt, slightly piney and perfume notes. Taste is moderately sweet with a good malt backbone, caramel and piney notes and moderate bitterness. Medium body. Slightly dry. Alcohol completely hidden. Not a fruity IPA at all, but one of the best of his king. I usually donít like IPA where the malt component is predominant, but this one is really well balanced and drinkable!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark orange with a fast fading white head leaving spotty lacing. Aroma is weak for an IPA, floral and pine notes, and sweet malt, underwhelming. Taste is better, with a more bitter pine bite, but its got a lot of malt and takes away from the hops Iím wanting. its not toobad.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent orange with sticky off-white lacing. Smells of well-balanced hops with a sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A solid IPA.
