Drank on tap (16 oz) at the brewpub on September 19, 2012. Dry hopped aroma of grapefruit, very fragrant. Dry hop flavor, notes of pine, very bitter. Simple but nice and very bitter!

Pours amber tinged mahogany into a Sam glass. Tan head with excellent retention recedes leaving sheet lacing to crater surface. Toasted caramel and resin aromas. Thin with sour citrus and stale toasted caramel front to back.

Shitty. Plain and simple. Smells gross, at least it tastes a little better than it smells

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Just how I like my Ipa - grapefruit hops in the nosr and on the tongue, sweet, but not cloying, amply strong without feeling weighty. Lacks a bit in the head department, though that may be a function of the sampler glass and the time I’ve taken to drink the others. Still, I like big, long lasting head. I also like this beer.

Pretty amber color, good head. Floral and citrus smells, malt and hops as well. Medium body. Crisp taste of hops and grass, w/ moderate bitterness.

Really dark for an IPA. Don't think it is the correct color for this style. Aroma of a musty basement. Certainly not my favorite IPA, but I would not turn it down if offered. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kaser (2607) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Poured from a bottle. Amber with thick and sticky tan foam. Smells a little earthy. Taste is slightly fruity, somewhat hoppy and malty. Not my favorite IPA but don’t mind it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
