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.

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.

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.

pepsican (1440) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Pours ruby with a thin off white head. Sweet caramel and hop aroma. Flavor is rather sweet, nice malts going on. Seems as though the hops may have faded a bit, but some juicy citrus still remains. Finishes slightly bitter to offset the sweet, decent carbonation. I really liked this one even though I think it is not quite what it was supposed to be. I would like another to see if this was fresh or not, and wouldn’t mind a few more aged ones if it brings out this flavor! Thanks to jake65 for this one, another great beer from a great trader!

12oz. Pours redish amber with small white head. Aromas of caramel, pine, and a small amount of citrus. Flavors of pine, resin, and a nice floral finish. Pretty nice IPA imo. Great flavor with a nice smooth finish.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Bottle. Lekker hoppy and piney aroma. Poured orange gold with moderate white head. Full hoppy flavour with lekker maltiness. Fast disappearing finish, doesn’t linger. A very worthy IPA

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2008
12 oz bottle, Pours a clear deep copper body under a one finger frothy off-white head that settled to a thin wispy partial covering. The nose on this just smells wonderfully fresh. Lots and lots of citrusy hops and a lighter compliment of pine resin over a slightly sweet smelling toasted malt base. The flavor is very hoppy up front, but fades to a slightly ashy bitterness towards the finish that seems a little harsh. A fairly stout malt base keeps the hops pretty well in check though. Long lingering bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with fizzy forced carbonation, maybe a touch sticky on the finish. Overall this is a pretty solid middle of the road IPA. I’d drink this again.
