COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hi.P.A. is a medium-bodied groove with a fresh and fruitful nose of tympanic temptation. It begins and ends with a big hop bite that is itself forever balanced on the brink by a steady rhythm of malt. Dry-hopped for extra quenching in the face of heat and beat, itís an ideal accompaniment to chilling out, turning inward or sailing onward through the music of the night toward the dawn of the mind. Itís the liquid way to say be here now lest you never come this way again.

Aroma quite fruity at first, but donít inhale before you sip. Ick. Nice color, moderate head at best. Taste leaves something to be desired and lingers in a not so good way. Not terrible, but not especially good.

Pours a very cloudy gold with a thin cream (almost tan) head. Hints of citrus and some other fruits I canít put a finger on. Wonderfully bitter-sweet! It has a very nice balance. The body is somewhat light with a bit of a sticky texture that you would expect from an IPA, but the finish isnít as bitter as I have come to expect from many IPAs. The last bit suites me just fine. I am not a big fan of tasting a beer 5-10min after I have taken a sip. I want a beer that hangs around just long enough for me to want that next sip. This one fits the bill quite nicely with as a very pleasing overall IPA.

Onslow (1130) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Slightly cloudy pal amber / yellow brew. Mid sized white head. Hoppy aroma - resin, floral. Taste is very hops forward, hops front to back really. Nice resin core with floral and a little lemon and citrus mixed in. Light bodied, clean and refreshing. Enough malt to keep it from being bitter, but definitely malt takes a backseat to the hops here. Solidly hoppy but still fairly delicate and light. An iron butterfly of a brew...

No head at all. Strawy yellow color, not a hop punch as I expected. Far from a good IPA

HeistAlmighty (1110) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
355ml bottle. Paler appearance than I was expecting, a hazy yellow, good head. Looks like a slightly richer Hefe. Taste and aroma are middle of the road IPA, some floral hops with some biscuit malt. Flavourful, but not adventurous. Body is medium. Overall, this is a beer that is drinkable without being weak, but not a face punch of hops.

Iím a fan of this one. Pours hazy yellow with a decent head, a floral nose an a medium body. Tastes primarily of citrus and resin. Has a nice balance, not overwhelmingly hoppy.
