COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first of four in the grumpy troll challenge. An American styled ipa with 10 additions of hops in fermentation for 10 days! Spicy, floral, and outstanding.

On draught at the brewpub in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear dark copper amber colored brew with an averagte sized off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin white head. Nice lacing throughout. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit zests overall, some golden and multi-grain malts, and a touch of caramel. Taste is mostly bitter of a typical IPA. Medium bodied, some light carbonation with flavors of grapefruit and some multi-grain malt. Finish continues the sharp bitterness with a lingering grapefruit aftertaste. Itíll definitely keep the hopheads happy.

Nice tan head, copper colored. Sweet and citrusy aroma. Lots of hop flavors, slight sweetness. Medium bodied, bitter finish. I like this one.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2009
On tap at the brewpub 7/31/09: Pours a transparent orange bronze with a well-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of fresh resiny grapefruity hops and lightly sweet pale maltiness. Starts with decent body and a grassy grapefruity hoppiness well-balanced with good malt presence before a crisp citrusy bittersweet finish. A pretty good IPA.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Golden pour. This was off right from the start, buttery and not very pleasant, flavor was the same, couldnít get by the butter (scotch). Must of been the line or something after loking at the two other ratings.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Murky amber with very little head, but the little that was there left a glass-coating lace for as long as it lasted, so the scant head was probably the barmanís choice. Aroma is pronouncedly floral, with caramel elements bringing up the tail. Flavor leads with hops bitterness. The aromatic hops elements are very floral, something like rose-geranium jelly, superimposed on a malt syrup sweetness. Slight peach fruity flavor, Palate is creamy but somewhat on the flat side. A tasty, uniquely floral IPA.

pepsican (1452) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Amber pour with a thick white head. Juicy floral hops dominate the aroma. Citrus and floral hops in the flavor, just a hint of a caramel background. Very creamy mouthfeel with a long lasting bitter finish.
