COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bitter and bold. This single hop american style IPA features 100 percent Columbus Hops for an intense citrus, floral and spicy aroma and flavor. Five different malts form the rich backbone that balances the hops’ 77 IBUs. The resinous mouthfeel is followed by a clean, dry hopped finish that refreshes and satisfies. Additional Information: Delve into this beer and you are going to see the complexities that this highly hopped beer has to offer. Grapefruit, orange, lemon, and flower essences are just a few flavors/aromas you are sure to find.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus and earthy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where exceeded.

Not quite the hop character I was looking for from a cali brewer. More earthly that grapefruit. Solid brew

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a decent white head. Light springy hops. Can definitely sense the Columbus hops. Light, tangy hoppy taste. Goes down real well. Light, dry finish with a little tart zing.

Amber color in the glass. There is a mild aroma of hops and citrus. Taste is good with earth tones of grass but not too overpowering. There is a little citrus in the taste but not too much. Was expecting more.

Bottle; poured a nice radiant amber/burnt orange; with a somewhat milky looking off white head. Aroma was darn good; haven’t smelled an IPA with this good of aroma in a while. Juicy fruit notes, mingled with pine, earth and grapefruit. Flavor was a few pegs down, but still quality. Earthy with some fruity notes; quite aggressive in the hopping and a touch of alcohol. Hint of a light sweetness. Great aroma, good beer.

Thanks to cavery for this one in trade. Cheers, Chris! Pours orange-amber with an oily white head. Nose is malt, and earthy, citrusy, and lemony hops. Interesting hop to pick for this project, but they have seem to have faded a little bit here. Flavor has noticeable malt followed by citrusy hops with hints of lemon, spice, and earth. Medium in body and slightly oxidized from what it could be. Light to medium in body with lingering earthy hops.

Satchboogie (5) - Lakes Region, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 20, 2011 does not count
A:Ended up pouring a massive 4 finger off-white head, moderately tight bubbles. Good retention, decent lacing. Light copper, slightly hazy. S: Grapefruit, citrus, a little astringency, pine, good bit of caramel T: More caramel than I’d like, light bite of grapefruit and pine. A little dank and herbal. A bit of astringency and noticeable alcohol esters. Finishes with a bit of residual sweetness and a little lingering bitterness. M: Medium body, fairly smooth and a little resinous. Not a crisp finish, carbonation dies middle mouth. O: Not a bad IPA, middle of the road without any unpleasant astringency/esters. A little too sweet for my taste with a less than stellar mouthfeel.

Starts off with a strong hop aroma and hazy amber body with slightly off-white head. Looks like they need to use a little Irish moss or something because even with a careful pour there were a lot of "floaters". This didn’t affect the taste which was a strong green, piney, citrus bitterness well balanced by sweet caramel malt. Nice juicy bitter finish with a little wood and toast. I’d like to try this on tap to get a clean pour to compare to the bottle. Really nice IPA from a new SoCal brewery!
