COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This classic handcrafted ale, brewed with generous amounts of American hops, including Cascade, Centennial and Amarillo has a complex character and is very hoppy in both flavor and aroma. By using barley malt, Munich malt and crystal malt, this IPA is a delicious medium bodied beer bursting with flavor. A true India Pale Ale.

Light amber and minimal head. Smells of hops. Tastes of hops and grain. This is not complex but if you ever want to let somebody know what hops tastes like give them this. Itís not unpleasant, just very simple.

luttonm (2072) - Belgrade, SERBIA - DEC 25, 2013
12oz. Darker brown-orange, minor head. sour orange fruit and caramel aroma, very malt driven. Some sweet sticky hop flavor, a bit of sour-bitter finish, but very sour metallic base all the way through. Not very good

Best by: Oct 23, 2011 A: Pours a amber ale with brilliant clarity. Two fingers of peanut head falls over a few moments to a sheet of the same. S: Hmmm, malt. Sweet malts. Not really getting any hops on the nose here. Lemme try again...Nope, malt and butterscotch. Fail. T: So, still really malty. WTF. Damn nearly an amber. The bottle says 67 IBU, I canít believe it. There just must be sooo much residual sugar that the beer tastes like sweet wheat and barley malts. Man, this is the first Iíve had of the 24 pack my wife convinced me to buy, and Iím not really looking forward to the rest. Okay, a few minutes in and thereís a hint of bitterness on the back end. M: Medium body with moderate to low carb. Dry finish. O: see above. Not impressive. Not an IPA. Serving type: bottle 06-27-2011

NJBeerman013 (1043) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours copper penny in color with a pure white rapidly fading head. Piney aroma, really fresh. Spicy hops with a bit of citrus on the tongue. Nice malt balance.

33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada. Medium amber-orange. Thin soapy head. Faint resin aroma, some passion fruit and resin. Sharp taste, then a metallic spice. Finish is long and bitter, more resin coming through.

12oz bottle from my BIL
Drank from the bottle at night while burning a brush pile. Pine bitterness and caramel. OK, but I like the amber better.

trapped (604) - TURKEY - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle. Rich yellow color, off-white foamy head, faint hops aroma, weak hoppy taste, fairly abrupt finish. The hops aroma and taste is very weak for an IPA, disappointing.

mansquito (3114) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2013
At a party: Pours amber with a whitish head. Aroma is nondescript hops and corporate malts. Taste is bitter, but the hops lack any real good flavor or anything like that. Kind of sweet and sticky in an unpleasant way. Really grudgingly mediocre.

From Beerilicious iphone app: no aroma that is worth a darn orange hazy minimal head actually tastes sour to start and bitter to finish medium body watery soft carbonation

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with a foamy ivory head. Aroma of caramel and pine. Taste of caramel, pine, skunk, and wet leather. Not as bad as expected but definitely not great. It was worth a try.
