COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA has an Intense hop aroma and strong malt body, followed by a smooth clean finish. Pacific Northwest malted barley with hops from the fields of Yakima have come together to create this IPA that is very hoppy but very balanced with complex malt flavors. The IPA is best served cool, not ice cold so as not to subdue the hop aroma. The perfect beer for any day.

22oz bottle, courtesy of acrdz. Thanks, Mike! Pours a ruby-orange color; white head with patchy lacing. Earthy and floral hops in the aroma; an earthy malt core underneath. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: earthy and floral, chewy hops (following the aroma); plenty of chewiness, a touch sticky; not overly interesting, and I found it hard to drink much of this. Lengthy, sticky hop finish: earthiness, sugar, and candy.

3fourths (8031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2008
A light haze on a red and copper colored body, far darker than any IPA should be, and far too red. Get ready for some caramel malt. But, first whiff, it’s actually nice – a lot of fruit and fruit sugars in the nose: maraschino cherries, fruity cocktail, pear syrup, etc. Has a medium bitterness that’s tempered somewhat by the fruit sugars, and the flavor shows off more of the crystal malt caramel flavors and chewiness, but it’s actually quite nice, and it goes well with the hoppy, fruity, crystalline hop cone sugariness. Better than expected.

boFNjackson (4133) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2008
Bottle... Poured clear amber with a foamy beige head. Aroma of yeast and pine and hops. Silky palate with flavors of oaky alcohol, woodsy spices, hops and sweet malt characters. I nice mix-up from your run of the mill IPAs.

Lothore (550) - California, USA - APR 26, 2008
A- Pours a deep orange with a 1 finger eggshell head which leaves quite a bit of lacing as it dissapates. S- Smell is supersweet and floral. Already I am starting to get a little apprehensive about this one. T- Taste is definitely hoppy but also has what I can only describe as a soapy sweetness. This one definitely did not hit me the right way. M- Semi viscous, a good amount of carbonation. D- I found this one very hard to drink. The soapiness in the taste really threw me off.

TheEpeeist (3351) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2008
12 oz bottle. Clear pink brown with a bubbly splotch. Nose is orange and caramel with mild grass. Medium light but a bit chewy; a few sparks of carb. Taste is sticky orange and clementines with a creamy malt center. Finishes with crisp, bitter citrus peel drying. Spot on IPA.

Captures your nose immediately, wonderful color. Hint of citrus yet balanced. Lacey and fragrant to the last drop a real classy beer.

Pours a clear orange copper with a medium light beige head. Aroma of butterscotch, caramel, pine and citrus. Taste is piney with buttery notes and hints of citrus. Very nice IPA.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2008
Big thanks to Buckeyeboy: Pours a clear orange beer with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is very floral, citrus and piney. Flavor is the wonderfully bitter flavor of NW hops and there is jus the right amount of caramel sweetness to balance the whole thing out. Nice long bitter finish. A very nice IPA.

Sample tray. Gold, almost orange. Lasting fair head. Restrained delicious drinkable hops and malt and more hops. Citrus and wood.

Bottle: Golden amber colored pour with medium sized white head. Sweet grassy, piney aroma with a nice light hoppy finish. I enjoyed this.
