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.

Superfloral and sweet aroma and taste which is especially rare from a bottle. Quite excellent in the small quantity I sampled.

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2009 I’ve had this from the bottle, draught, draught unfiltered at the brewery, and as a one-off, dry-hopped and in a cask. Dark amber, small soapy big-bubble head that fades. Very floral, pine and resinous, touch of citrus in orange and lemon, a tinge of grapefruit. Slight malt balance in biscuit and caramel character. Moderately bitter finish, medium carbonation, nice on the palate. This beer has gotten significantly better over the couple of years since I first tried it.

mrant (330) - New York, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Smells of flowery sour grapefruit hops. Pours a clear light copper color with a small white head. Taste is pungent sour hops, but so overpowering that your mouth will pucker. Very well balanced and tasty. A very good IPA

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2008 On draft at Exlicir in Pitsburgh’s South Side, pour an apple juice color with decent amount of head. Piney, floral aroma. Sufficient amount of hop taste that is very grassy and a touch of grapefruit. Minor nut taste at the end.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Pours a clear amber gold with an off white head. Nose is strong with pine resin and almost a touch of sweet apricots. Flavor is strong with hop attributes. Fairly strong sweet tone to it. Feel has a lot of bubble on the tongue but a fairly standard liquid feel. I say this is extremely drinkable, but more so if you like the hoppy brews. If you are not one who digs getting kicked in the mouth by a hop (not that this one is that extreme), then you might appreciate this one a little bit less.

BeerandBlues2 (9355) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2008
12-oz bottle received via trade with jah noth. Pours clear orange with an average, frothy, off-white head, somewhat diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (hay, straw), heavy hops (pine, spruce, resin), light yeast (sweat) with notes of pear and peach. Medium bodied, slick texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4763) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2014 I am surprised at all the low scores for this one. I had not been impressed with this brewer before trying this one. Sampled on draft at the Rivertowne Pub this beer poured a bright copper color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was strong sweet piney and floral hops. The flavor was strong sweet and thick with robust fruity, piney and floral hops. The hops linger on the long sweet finish. definitely my kind of IPA. Very hoppy but not harsh at all. The hops blended exceptionally well in this one.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2008
Tap at Ginger Man. Light golden beer with a thin white head. Massive fresh hoppy aroma. Pungent and very floral. Lavender and violet with a strong grapefruity tangerine fruitiness, mango and pineapple. Fruity and very juicy lemon citrus over a pale malt base. Light honeyish sweetness. Bright hop flavour, very fresh, and very tasty. Given the ratings, I’m surprised that this doesn’t have better ratings. A very tasty, sticky, fruity IPA.
