COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This amber colored beer is creamy and delectable, probably our best India Pale Ale yet. Hops, hops and more hops will satisfy even the most extreme hop head.

12oz Bottle. Best before: 05-16-08. Gooey hop nose. A good mingling of hop spices, wet leaves, and flowers. Blended and backed with alcohol and decent caramel. Pours a crystal-clear amber, with an orange fringe and white, soapy rim. Flavor is interesting. There’s a lot of hop flavor, which I greatly appreciate, but it gets washed away somewhat by piquant alcohols and a thin body. Not as chewy as I would have expected with this color. Grapefruit juice lingers. A little bit of dust and lightly old hop resin dot the back end of the beer. A very mild yeast by-product shows mid-palate. Nice hop flavors, but in the end a little watery, dusty-tasting, and alcoholic. Thanks Sean!

draught@Erzbierschof - slightly hazy dark amber beer under a persistent creamy beige foam; flowery, perfumy with notes of red fruity hops; creamy and velvety palate; medium-bodied, moderate and subtle carbonation; a light corny tartness, a gentle bitterness and some residual sweetness; aftertaste of elder and cream with earthy notes

On tap at Blind Tiger with James and Dallaaay. Pours a deep ruby with a small tuft of off-white head atop. Nice stringy lacing throughout. Aroma is clean pine, grapefruit, sweet orange slices, and some juicy mango and tropical fruit notes. Meduim bodied with a juicy, slick palate. Flavor is heavy on the mango and grapefuits; very fresh and dank tasting. Finish is nice and smooth. Excellent IPA.

flatmatt (1162) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Growler. Pours a clear, very golden amber with a white head. Tons of resinous pine resin (yes I know that’s redundant) in the aroma, lots of grapefruit. Flavor has pine, light grapefruit, kind of a lavender potpourri quality. Lighter palate, especially compared to the aroma.

[4125-20111113] Tap. Fruity fresh orange citrus hops aroma. Clear, amber orange body with a quick foamy white head. Tasty bitter orange grapefruit peel flavour has a long bitter aftertaste too. Medium-full body. A little off-balanced but good. (7~/3/7/3/16) 3.6
