...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.

Bottle. The pour was a cloudy copper orange with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that was mostly lasting, receding down to a large cap with fair streaky lacing. The aroma was of a light sweet bread malt, grassy hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, honey, citrus (orange) and maybe a touch of dried fruit (figs). The taste was lightly malty sweet with a mild hint of caramel early on, becoming a bit hoppy with a light citrus note and a slight bitter finish. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow leaving behind a light smooth bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel was just a hair above light in body with a watery dry texture and a medium carbonation. Overall a pretty basic IPA, although it possessed a good drinkability it did not have any outstanding qualities...

Was one of my favorite ipas back in the day guess my palate changed over the last 5 years. Smell is very orangey with slight notice of pine near the end. Good body nice orangey citrus flavor with weak bit at the finish. Diffently wish it had the old lable on the bottle.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and caramel malt. Body is medium and tangy. Citrusy hops, caramel malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long, dry. Overall, good brew.

It has a hazy amber to coppery colored body with an off white head. The head is tall thick and foamy. It has good retention and keeps a nice small cap on the beer until the last drop. On the way down the glass it makes some cool lacing. The nose has a solid hop aroma featuring citrusy/herbal and musty notes over light pale maltiness and bready yeast. Its medium bodied with a light bready maltiness supporting some decent hop bitterness. In the bitterness there are notes of herbal tea hops, citrus and some musty hops as well. The texture is smooth and firm with a nice level of carbonation.

Bulk_Carrier (2572) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a bold brown colored body that leaves a one finger white head that lasts a good two minutes. No carbonation is rising. The smell had a malty sweet citrus up front with just a bit of hops in the background. The taste was pretty much the same, nothing different. The palate sat about a medium, pretty creamy, nothing harsh on the tongue. Overall, this is decent, but nothing spectacular, I’m not sure if I would have this again.

12 oz. glass on draft Buffalo Wild Wings, Burlington, VT. Yellow orange color, Spotty lace sticking to sides of glass. Aroma is mild citrus and weak earthy hops.

Flavor is expected. The initial taste is a bit citrus upfront and the backend is Floral Earthy hops. Bitterness is restrained and not overly bitter like most of the hop bombs on the market. Medium body with plenty of malt in the base of this beer.

Overall, No complaints and no problems. This has a very classic standard example of the style. Real drinkable and I like the simple approach after drinking so many hop bombs.

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
