COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Elegantly traditional and rich in its’ hop character, this India Pale Ale is thirst-quenching and soul-satisfying. Each sip delivers a bounty of herbal and floral hop character, balanced by the fruity signature of our house yeast.

12 ounce bottled shared by Alraomon. Thanks Sean! Pours a clear copper color with a short lasting white frothy head. Very fruity aroma with notes of green apple, citrus and cotton candy. Taste is bitter hops with some citrus notes. Nice balance. Slightly sticky texture. Medium bodied. Very nice IPA.

Tap. Moderate roasted, nutty and caramel for the malt, heavy spruce and orange for the hops, light soap for the yeast and hints of pepper and a mix of fresh and dried fruits. Head is small, frothy, slightyl off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark amber/orange. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, oily and has a soft carbonation. A pretty good IPA and very easy drinking beer.

12oz bottle from an east coaster of course....pours a clear light orange brown with a thin off-white head.... aroma of sweet juicy floral/citrus hops.... flavors carried on much of the same with generally sweet citrus hops with very little bitterness. carbonation keeps things honest and the alcohol level isn’t apparent at first but it does warm you up a bit....an underrated IPA, and an 8% one at that.

Out of the cask this one pours an amber color with a bit of white head. The smell is piney and citrusy. The first blast of flavor comes from the hops which are quite tangy and this is immediately followed by a strong grapefruit flavor. The finish is surprisingly smooth. The mouthfeel is a bit stagnant, but it is possible that this is because of the cask. This is a very drinkable brew and I was quite impressed overall. Reviewed on: 06-28-2007

Tap at grey lodge. Certainly not kidding, very flowery aroma. very refreshing, on tap I’m not tasting excessivse sweetness as some have reported. to me, a super, flower/citrus/pine wallop that stays controlled and drinkable. very nice.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Amber color with a mildly piney-floral aroma. Flavor is rather hoppy with a sweet, but slightly off-balance malt profile. Finishes spicy, but clean. Not bad, but I expect a bit better from these guys.

Draft at Capone’s. Pours dark straw toward coppery with off-white head. Nose is immense piney hops, tropical fruity citrus, with malt and heavy floral notes. Tastes very floral, very piney hoppy, yeasty estery, a bit dry, with perhaps a bit of a lack of a malt bill, but the florals and the hops and the tangerine/pineapple citrus never let up, and make this one a marvelous brew that never gets hot. I wanted to growler this, but I shot my wad on the new Unibroue offering. IMHO, this one is rated very low for how good it really is. I urge all to give it a second chance.

Poured a clear amber color with a medium sized white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, caramel, pine, and light citrus. Taste of caramel malts, piney resin, citrus, and toast, with a moderately bitter finish.
