COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA is a delicious example of this "neo-classical" American beer style. It has a light copper color and a hint of citrus in the nose and palate. With much more than a hint of hops, our IPA starts malty, then smacks you about the face and shoulders with plenty of Columbus hops. It is sure to satisfy the most discerning hop-head.

Draft 4/14/10 (Opal Divine’s-Freehouse)-Pours a light amber with a small white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of the same with some pine coming thru. This medium to full bodied brew is anice tasting IPA.

thirdeye11 (5535) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 25, 2010
(draught at moth) clearish copper-orange with lasting weird bubbly head. Nose of pine, candied orange, quite subdued but smells ok. Taste on the other hand is oh my god bitter. Almost no residual sugars to balance it. Pine, bitter unsweet grapefruit, and a slick body with lasting bitterness.

tmoreau (2364) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Cellared, competition/sample 12 oz. bottle, poured to my 1/2 pint tasting glass, with a hazed, gold color, mega-lasting head foam that was off white, creamy, bubbly, and restricted my ability to taste the beer for awhile. The lacing was full, thick and bubbly. The aroma was perfumey fruit, almost pineapple, a little citrus, and some spice. The flavor was a good balanced malt and hop attack when I was finally able to get to it, a lighter than medium body, and with a nice, lingering bitterness into the finish. Very drinkable, with a little warmth to the alcohol.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Draft at Ginger Man and Plano. Pours amber with an off white head. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Very nice and aggressive floral hop and fruity ale ester aroma. Flavor of caramel countered by a sweet grapefruity bitterness. Dry and hoppy finish. Why all the bad ratings? This was damn good, unless I was served the wrong beer.

mmmbeer (1239) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Shaker at Rovers- turbid yellow/copper appearance, half finger white head that tried it’s best to lace, weak aroma of hops and malt. Hits the mouth with a low medium body, malt is very slightly sweetened, middle has a bit of funk and earth to it, finish has a very small amount of acidity. Have had this many times before, but something is just off on this, and it’s not in this only time alone- a bit weak for an IPA.

Mora2000 (5650) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Sampled on tap at the Whip-In. The beer pours a light orange-amber with a white head. The aroma is citrus hops with some grassy notes. The flavor is citrus with a nice caramel and biscuit malt backbone. The main citrus flavors are grapefruit and lemon. Medium-high carbonation and medium mouthfeel. I think this is a better IPA than Live Oak’s Liberation Ale.

dnstone (2137) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Very balanced malt/hop aroma. Gold with light whispy white head. Slight dirty/eathiness but not overwhelming.

imaragingbull (570) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2010
OK IPA, but nothing standout. Aroma one of its best attributes; nice floral and spicy hop aroma on the nose. Flavours are well balanced for the ipa, however some very subtle inappreciable yeast flavours are noticeable on the palate. Lingering bitterness is nice, however just an ok IPA in comparison to most.

nickd717 (3477) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 1, 2009
GABF 2009. This is decent but not quite as good as the hefeweizen. Hazy orangish-copper color with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malt and citrusy hops. Flavor is more malty than hoppy with caramel malt and pine/grapefruit hops. Body is medium and there is a little lasting bitterness. Overall pretty good but not memorable.
