Bottle sample, many thanks Roei, medium bubbly stable head, clear and a touch deep orange colour, aroma of rose petals,turkish delight, pomello and apples, flavour of citrus and herbs with a biscuity maltiness behind it and a strong but refined bitterness, short bitter aftertaste. Good and a bit different IPA.

Pours a clear copper with a nice lasting white head. Really nice lacing. Aroma is peach, caramel, and some grass. Taste is pine, grass, spicy, some caramel sweetness. Bitterness comes through in the finish. Very good IPA.

On draft. Pretty typical IPA- leans more towards the sweet side w/ flavors of citrus fruits & some pine. Nothing too special, but a fairly good beer, nonetheless.

On tap at Beaver St Brewery. Fantastic west coast IPA. Smells fantastic, equivalent to an Imperial IPA like Double Jack. Beautiful off white head leaves lacing on the glass. Very hoppy taste, finishes with a taste of pine.

22oz bottle, thanks to Radarsock. Nice, thin off-white head, decent lace. Mildly hazy amber color. Great hop profile, and more full body for the 6.1%. Nice pine and resiny flavors, some pear, but also a significant amount of maltiness. Canít tell how fresh it is without a bottled on: date, but I have a feeling the maltiness would be much more subdued if this was fresh. Itís not malty-sweet, though. Enough bitter is in there still to not mess up the taste. Lighter carbonation, medium-plus body, just a slight bit of stickiness. Really nice to wash down the first half of a turkey bacon jalapeno subway sandwich with.

12oz can courtesy of cbkschubert.
Lots of hops in the nose, very citrus/piney. Nice opaque amber color, only a small amount of head and lacing.
Just the right amount of bitterness with a moderate amount of sweet. I do wish it had a wee more carbonation, but itís not flat or anything either.
I think itís a pretty good IPA, wouldnít mind drinking one again.
