COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nicely balanced flavorful ale, made bitter with copious amounts of Centennial hops and a long fascinating history. A real treat for hopheads and the brewerís favorite beer!

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2012
22oz bottle. Mildly hazy amber color. Ridiculously large light khaki head. Stronger, soft carbonation impedes drinkability. Some decent lace. Toasty malts are forward here, but some fruity light earthy floral hops are also present. Tastes kind of English-style. Very dry, with a good bitterness. Kind of over-carbonated. Gets better after itís been sitting for an hour, but thatís kind of a testament to how not great this beer was

cheap (3802) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
From a bottle fairly thick head. Cloudy yellow with a tinge of brown. Smell is medium ipa perfume. Taste is big bitter chewing on grapefruit rinds happy bullshit. Yes, bitter sides of tongue impact like so WTF. This should be in the imperial ipa style, wew. Fary off. Un impressed.

chinchill (1377) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 5, 2013
on tap at Maumee Bay brewpub in Toledo. This is a deep orangish-amber color. with a bone-colored head of moderate size and excellent duration. Overly bitter given the levels of hop-based aromatics and flavors. Hop component features earthy and piney notes. Medium-light carbonation with a medium body.

Pailhead (4413) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of light caramel and faint grapefruit. The aroma is rather light. It pours a hazy dark orange with a one finger off-white head that quickly fades to a thin soapy outlined by a soapy ring. The flavor starts with light-moderate caramel and a hint of fruit. The finish has mild grapefruit hops. Itís light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, itís a pretty tame IPA that comes across more like an American Pale Ale.

schlitzfaced (46) - Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Poured from bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazy golden amber color, leaving a thin head. Aroma is nice. Lots of carbonation. Not real Hoppy and can definatley taste the malt. Not a bad beer.

From a bottle. Very tasty. Not overly rich or boozy. Quite fresh and hoppy, a little over the top, but good while Iím in the mood.

MadRobin (1694) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 14, 2013
On tap 4 oz. sampler at the Maumee Bay Brew Pub in Toledo, OH. Hazy, medium amber with a small off-white head and fair lacing. Muted aroma of caramel, citrus, and mild floral hops. Taste of floral hops, caramel and citrus. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. A pedestrian IPA that offends by trying to be too inoffensive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheHOFF43 (1674) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with some white head. Aroma is lacking, as is flavor. Kinda stale hops and is quite average.
