COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gearhead IPA is brewed in the Northwest tradition of generous amounts of aroma hops, creating layers of citrus and piney aromatics and flavors, while managing to strike a balance with moderate malt body. This crisp and refreshing beer will provide you with complex and resinous aromas

Bomber at Mikey’s party. Pours a clear golden/copper color with a medium white head. A sweet citrus nose with light malt. A very mellow and malty brew, some light citrus, low bitterness. Pretty good.

mcberko (6696) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
On tap at the Grain & Gristle, pours a clear golden / copper with a small ring of white head. Aroma and flavour of woody notes and slightly bitter hops – not typical West coast at all. More woody-dominated than a standard IPA, without much of the classic piney, resinous quality. OK, but quite weak and low drinkability due to the woody quality.

theisti (3257) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 2, 2012
22 oz bomber purchased at Letspour.com. The pour is a light haze golden copper with a two inch light tan head. The aroma is fresh resin pine, along with sweet caramel malt. The taste is the pine resin, softly bitter hops, on top of a thinner tasting cracker and lightly sweet cereal grain malt. The palate is light to medium bodied, with lower soft carbonation, and the resin dry pine finish. The pine really lingers. Crisp, easy drinking.

reebtogi (4239) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some earthy notes and caramel. Taste is a bold grapefruit and piney hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. A very bold and flavorful IPA that is quite tasty and highly recommended.

thirdeye11 (5593) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2012
(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) clear medium bright gold, wispy white bubbles. Nose of caramel, lightly floral, honey, sweet hops, fresh juicy citrus. Smells awesome. Taste is a bit faded, caramel, light bitter, pine, biscuit, medium to thin body, wish it tasted like it smelled.

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle, shared with mmmIPA. Hazy orange amber, persistent off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma, fresh pine and nectarine. Beautifully balance malts (more biscuit than caramel) play off delicious aromatic hops, tropical fruit and pine. Quite a juicy feel to this IPA. Bitterness is balanced, but extreme. Very very nice.
