COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
...created to aid in deciphering the puzzles along life’s road, and interpreting signs in the voyages of the spirit. Brewed in homage to the wisdom of visionaries everywhere who blaze paths into uncharted territories. Our take on an India Pale Ale (IPA.) A deep golden amber ale with a rich up-front malty nose finishing with a big, hoppy bite. Dry-hopped to finish with a big fresh (Cascade) hop flavor. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting yeast.

[5307-20130429] Tap. Grainy aroma, not a lot there. Clear, pale orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Fruity grains flavour has a bitter base. Medium body. Good, drinkable. (6/3/7/3/14) 3.3

BEERSOLDIER (42) - Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2014
hazy orange/caramel color, big head that is pure white and leaves excellent lacing. smells of caramel, nuts, pumpkin spice and malts. Smells very exciting. nice medium body, unfortunately aroma is much fuller than the flavor. Flavors of caramel, toffee, sweet and a little malty. Overall a very good beer but not fantastic. definitely worth the price. try it if you see it but don’t go out hunting for it.

Someone recommended this to me; I’m a little frustrated with them now. Very one note IPA with none of the fruity citrus in the hop flavor, just a sort of flat one note bitterness with an almost wheatbeer like lightness. Not very tasty, but better than a lot of the crap Magic Hat shills out

PhilJackson80 (531) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 18, 2014
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a dark golden/ amber color with a small white head. The aroma is too sweet with floral & pine notes to it. The taste is way too sweet for my taste with a pine & not much malt balance to it. Overall i was not a fan of this beer. I have had worst but this one is not good.

Not the best IPA out there but not the worst in my opinion. You got the nice smell of pine the beautiful golden look and most important that sweet hop taste.

A slightly better than average IPA. Very well balanced. Lots of sweet caramel and a little bit of butter cancel out the piney hops.

Bottle. This is a pretty basic IPA without much going for it. I would look for a left coast IPA.

ClassyBeagle (374) - USA - NOV 20, 2013
FROM NOTES: August 12, ’12. From a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip. A: Very malty with toasted notes, hints of citrus and very subtle hints of earthy hops A: Pours a slightly hazy orange copper color with a thick, one inch cream head that dissipates slowly, leaving substantial lacing. T: More bitter than the nose lets on with a citrus like hop finish. Malts and a nutty like taste in the finish. P: Medium bodied with ok carbonation. Slight alcohol presence. O: A decent and very sessionable IPA, great for a summer night outside with a group. The smell leaves something to be desired for an IPA though.

Lots of fruity aroma overpowering the hops. Malt drowns out much of the bitter bite I expect in an IPA. Clean, citrus finish. Not bad on its own but not what I look for in an IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
