COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There ís nothing traditional about this traditional Indian Pale Ale. Amber in color with an INTENSE maltiness perfectly balanced with a spicy hop flavor. Carefully dry hopped at the end of its fermentation cycle with Centennial Hops.

I like Centennial hops, so I think well of this beer. Good citrus and tropical fruit nose from a healthy foam. Amber color with medium body. Flavors are a little too sweet but hops are still noticeable. Finish is also slightly sweet.

Amber pour with a white head. Nice citrus hop nose. Some grapefruit, a bit of orange, and a light peach note. Plenty of pine, a mild malt sweetness, and a hint of floral hops. There is a bit of a grassy note to the flavor. Some pie bitterness, grapefruit, and orange peel. Moderate malt sweetness on the palate as well.

unclemattie (4185) - Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Growler. Deep orange pour. Citrus aroma. Very nice hop aroma. Flavor is sweet malt. Some cotton candy. All followed up by a calming American C-hop bitterness.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2009
On tap @ the brewpub. Clear medium orange with a 1/2 finger yellowish white head, good retention. Big grassy citrus hops and light pine hops behind, with a solid lightly sweet clean caramel malt backbone. The flavor has the caramel turning a little honeyish, with the hops otherwise staying the same. Dry finish with bitterness at a 4. Light carbonation with a medium body. Very good IPA--more of a regular IPA than a West Coast. . .

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2009
One of the most well balanced "hop bombs" I’ve had in a lng longtime. On Tap at the brewpub in Bakersfield. Poured a really nice looking deep orange color with a nice white head. Flavor is juicy hops with a nice almost sweet malt nose in the background. Flavor is amazing. Some really nice citrus hop kick at the front end with a little bit of pine hop thrown in for interest, but the bitterness you expect at the back of your mouth was replaced by the sweetness of the malt. There was a lot of good stuff going on in this glass.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2008
On tap. Poured a dark amber with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Flavor is malty with a citrus finish. Medium body with mild carbonation. Good IPA. I keep being amazed at the small Cali brew pubs. Great beer coming from this region.

ChainGangGuy (4374) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Appearance: Pours a hazy, dark amber body supporting a thin ring of white bubbles. Smell: A full hoppiness commands the aroma with notes of spice, citrus, pine, and even grass. Only a slight caramel maltiness beneath. Taste: Caramel maltiness, lightly sweet, and quickly cleansed away by a blast of spring water. Then come to prominence, bringing the same components as with the aroma and a medium-high bitterness that lasts well into the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A fine, finely bitter India Pale Ale.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2008 Pours yellow/slightly red in color, slightly cloudy with a small head. Smells of hops, hops, and more hops. Did I say hops? First sip is a trip to hop heaven. A malty backbone nicely compliments the strong hops. A strong bitter finish with above average carbonation. A fine showing.
