COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ale: Old school version of an IPA. Still balanced; not a ‘one trick pony’ pale. Named after the country song “It’s hard to kiss the lips at night that chew your ass out all day long”.

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2008
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy to murky orange with a creamy white head. Peachy and orange fruity hops aroma. Flavour acidic and hoppy in a nice solid way - holds a mild caramel malt base yet the hoppy flavours seem quite refreshing and smooth without much caramel malt base.

The Dan Journal #178. Tasted 5/30/08. 12oz bottle. Hazy with golden hue. Layer of off-white head. Floral honey nose. Lemon and melons. Very pleasant aroma. Medium bodied and bitter. Sticky and tart. Lotta citrus and grapefruit. Totally bitter with a hop dominant palate. Just slightly off and simplistic.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear golen with a small white head that fades to a ring and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with hints of floral and citrus hops. Tastes is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and slightly tart finish. Good.

kyzr (1147) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Bottle thanks to ogglethorp. Almost amber pour with a nice off-white head. Hoppy nose with a nutty toasted malt nose. Flavor is hoppy, yet somewhat faint. Sweetness of the malt shows up in the middle with a bitter finish.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Bottle. Dark gold body with lots of small particle sediment that floats without moving. A very thick, dense khaki head top tops the strange looking beer. Smells of grapefruit and bread crust are pungent. There is also some almond and caramel. The taste has grapefruit with some bitter burnt bread crust in the finish. There are also some black tea notes. The mouthfeel is sticky and thick. A very nicely made IPA.

Thanks skyview. The beer pours to a hazy golden body with lots of tiny particulate. A thin white head sits on top. The aroma is full of grapefruit. The flavor is a bitter spruce and grapefruit mix. Pale malts on the finish. The palate is carbonated and bitter. Raw.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Bottle. Pours clear orange witha medium off white head. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, orange and melon. Taste is sweet up front and bitter at the end, more citrus, cantalope keeps coming to mind. A little acidic. The bitterness lingers for a while. A little thinne than I would’ve liked. Overall, I liked this.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Courtesy hopscotch. Thanks Eric! Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a huge, frothy, well-retained off white head. Smells of very citrusy hops, other citrus fruits, and a little sweet cinnamon. I rather enjoyed the aroma. The flavor was almost somewhat tart, with the hops only showing up near the finish. Kind of bittersweet, with a decent amount of citrus fruit making its presence known. Not horrible, but i sensed a little infection in there, which kind of killed the hops.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a large, frothy, white head. Terrific retention. At first, the aroma was acidic/sour with citric and earthy notes. Lemon too. However, as it warmed to room temperature, the acidity almost entirely disappeared... weird. Score adjusted. Moderately bitter flavor with essences of lemon peel and grapefruit rind. Mild pale grain sweetness and bacterial tanginess. Medium-bodied with Champagne-like spritziness. Finishes tangy and bone dry. I can’t figure out whether this bottle is infected. Probably a bit. Lower score if I rated by style.
