Sampled on draft at the State College beer festival this beer poured a caramel color with a large yellow-tan head. The aroma was sour nut and floral hops. The flavor was strong bitter sour nut, piney hops and floral hops with a bitter and sour finish.

06 State College Brew Expo. Pours a translucent golden with a large foamy off white head that sustained and left some lacing. Aroma was very caramel, toffee and some orange. Not very hoppy. Flavors of the same with some pine, citrus and lots of sweet malt and grains.

Draft at Dilly Deli: Copper color with a thin white head. Aroma, citrsy, some caramel. Flavor, lots of citrus, with plenty of maltiness to balance. Nice bitterness on the finish, alcohol didn’t come through at all. Pretty solid brew.

I was expecting more from this, but didn’t get it. The pour is the best part--a very nice clear golden color with a good head--very good looking beer in the glass. The aroma is full of hops of course--but not an overpowering citrus or floral smell. The taste is medium bodied, with medium carbonation. The flavor was mostly really faint malt and the hops. There was a hint of spiciness in the hop profile.

Thanks to Black 95tt for this one. From bottle. Pours a pale, clear orange with thin off white head. Nose is resiny citrus and sweet malt. Flavor follows with a bitter finish.

The aroma is a pleasent combination of citrus and pine. The color is a golden orange with a white head and decent lacing. The hoppish flavor comes through nicely with notes of grapefruit and an astringent bitter finish.

Bottle. My least favorite of the Great Lakes brews that I have tried thus far - still, not bad. Pale, clear, orange color with a nice fairly thick white head. Astringent, citrus, piney aroma. Not a ton of flavor on the first impression, but a nice hoppy finish. I did appreciate the body and feel in the mouth - very smooth. Give it a try.

12oz, Best if enjoyed by Sep 19 06. Pours a clear light golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus and pine hops--though not really grapefruit. Some caramel and biscuity malts are backing up the hops. Flavor is a little bit perfumey with the pine, and the biscuits and caramels come through the same. Medium body, light-moderate carbonation. The last IPA I had like this was the Paper City India’n Pale Ale, though Great Lakes executes this better.

A very tasty and hop filled IPA. A tad bigger and hoppier than the well-muscled Burning River Pale Ale, Commodore Perry is very fresh and the hop aroma is tantalizing. This IPA boasts the citrusy hop flavor that I so love as well as a malt presence to create a well balanced beer. The finish is beautifully hoppy.
