Pours a clear amber. This aroma is full of good orangey hops. The hops are aggressive in the flavor as well. A solid IPA with plenty of hop aroma and flavor.

This bottled brew poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated hazy dark orange colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was mild with a mild hop and a slight spice note. The mouth feel was tingly at the start then mellowed in the finish with a mild hop slight spice malty note.

Nice pour....golden, amber with a fluffy white head. Nice hoppy nose, citric, piney in nature. More malt in the flavor than I expected, but this was still big hops in the mouth. Very tasty.....nice session IPA.

hotstuff (4762) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Bottle. Small off-white head that mostly diminished with minimal lacing, transparent, carbonated, and an orange hue. The nose was very hoppy, piney, some light malt notes, and some grapefruit. The flavor was some caramel, grapefruit, and very hoppy, piney tasting. Tingly, sticky mouthfeel. Medium body. Lots of hops in this one for those that consider themselves to be a "hophead".

Thanks to Brock_Landers for giving me this bottle beer last weekend!

Pours a copper colored body and a tall white head. The aroma and flavor bring large suggestions of caramel; some buttered and toasted honey-nut wheat bread, a jumbo dosage of juicy pine resin alpha hops, and spicy notes of cedar wood chips… Sticky palate and a dry bitter finish…. YEP… It’s an IPA, and a tasty one at that!
Thanks, John!

Aubrey (3508) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Hazy and rusty-orange; OK white head but nice and lingering lace. Inviting nose was sweet and flowery. Nice texture, weight and carbonation. Malts were cakey-sweet, doughy and a little toasty. Faint note of yeast in the background. Hops were citrusy, flowery, and a little piney. Big blast of hop aromas in the finish (flowers, grass and lemon). Snappy bitterness in the aftertaste (plant stems). Could use a pinch more sweetness to balance things out, but otherwise it’s a pretty good IPA.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2011 Mad Anthony needs to quit acting like it’s hard to brew good beers. It’s like they just don’t want to. This one has an astringency about it that I can’t call pleasant. It’s a little too much on the sweet side, although there is a fairly apparent Cascade presence and a mild bitterness. Finishes more sweet than it ought to. Well, in my book anyway. I want my IPA to be nice and dry. There is something about their malt selections I just never really care for. Clearly this one has plenty of crystals in it. Is it drinkable? Yeah, sort of. Should it be better than it is? Yessir.

From the bottle. This is a hazy orange beer with a sort lived off-white head. The nose is like fresh pine and orange hard candy. Very hot on the tongue. This is a very hoppy beer with lots of pine, grapefruit rind, orange candy and grass in the finish. Almost enough caramel sweetness to balance. Body feels like it should be bigger. Okay IPA.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with atpayne, thanks Adam!) Just opening the bottle, I can smell the piney hops, and after pouring the beer, the very aromatic and piney nose exuberantly calls to me, beckoning me deeper into the forest. Definitely an IPA dominated by hops, it’s bitter and piney with grapefruity citrus and hints of tea and herbs just for good measure. The moderately sweet malt doesn’t jump out, but provides a solid base so that this beer isn’t just hop juice. A bit of chalkiness in the flavor and mouthfeel. Body is medium "plus", but finishes fairly clean and very crisp, and carbonation is pleasant. Goilden amber in color, but being only slightly hazy, it’s easy to see the small, tan particles suspended in the beer. Small but creamy off-white head quickly settles to a filmy layer, but still leaves a very decorative doily of lace on the glass. While not pompously hoppy, there is plenty here for the hops lovers out there, even for those of us who reside on the West Coast.
