Picked up growler at the pub. Pours medium brown with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, citrus and floral. Taste is sweet with very tempered bitters. Medium bodied, slick texture and soft carbonation. Overall this may have been the best beer I’ve had from LVBP. It was perfect for sitting out back with a blazing fire. I hope that LVBP can continue to put out beers like this as it has restored my faith in their brewing operation.

I don’t even really like IPA’s, but this one has such an awesome flavor that I’ve been taking growlers home from work with me. Perfect copper color, awesome malt flavor to balance the exact right amount of hop bitterness, with a ton of flavor and aroma, and no cascade-tasting "American IPA" crap. Wicked awesome beer.

Brewery. Slight floral aroma. Goldish yellow color with nice sized head and lacing all the way through. Very dry and nice and bitter. Lively mouthfeel. Taste of nice hop bitterness and tart citrus graperuit. Their best beer.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2006 3.01.06 re-rate: Better overall. Tasted like a delicious fruit at times. Like a kiwi. A majestic kiwi
Delicious. This was in the seasonal beer spot on the sampler. I’m usually not a huge fan of IPA’s but I liked this. Nice and easy to drink

Tap at the BP. Nice golden clear color with a white head. Hoppy fresh aroma. Flavor is mostly hops. The malt sweetness fades quickly. No depth. The hops are slightly sharp but pleasant. Very easy to drink. Not for someone looking for complexity in their bee, but good for social occasions.
