Bottle. Copper pour with thick off white head. Sweet, floral, bread, cake, herb. Too sweet for me on the nose. Some bitterness at the end but not enough to balance the sweetness. One dimensional. More depth would be much nicer. Hard to finish the whole bottle...

MarkBarnes (372) - Waterville, New York, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Dec. 3, 2011; 22 oz. bomber. Well-carbonated, malty, sudsy IPA with a slightly-out-of-control pour. Bready; grassy; a bit sticky. Superior palate & great balance that lets the malt come through. Quite enjoyable.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2011
Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy caramel color ale with a nice thick foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light bitter hops with light floral undertones with a rich caramel malt base. Taste is also a well balanced mix between some floral and lightly bitter hops with a rich caramel mal bill with just enough sweetness to balance the hops profile. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. I understand this is not an IPA for hophead but the malt bill is quite incredible and I would love to have this more often.

22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has some floral notes, sweet malt, bubblegum, with a weird cucumber vegetal finsih. The flavor opens with some floral and herbal hops before turning dry and biscuity with general bitterness at the finish.

22 oz bomber from Canal’s Hainesport. Poured a brownish/aber body with an average sized foamy off white head. Flavor and aroma were just plain horrible, old dirty bread, bad vegtables and old dried out caramel. Add this to the list of badly infected just plain horrible beers from McNeills.

Nice crisp, slightly hazy copper coloured body with a nice tan head that fades relatively fast. Aroma of grapefruit, floral hops, light malt and a bit of a grassiness. Medium-bodied; Floral and grassy bite at first from the hops with a bit of grapefruit coming through afterwards and a good balance of malt, but a definite herbal kick from the hops. Aftertaste is a bit one-dimensional, but that’s fairly typical for the style and the tastes are squarely on the hops. Overall, a decent IPA, nothing spectacular, but not a bad example. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liquor Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 08-May-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 05-July-2011.

Bottle shared thanks to Dmac. Pours out a moderate amber color with a moderate white head. Aroma is of some grainy malts...no hops. Taste is of bready malts, light caramel and maybe some grassy hop? Drainpoured by Dmac..

keepersj12 (2560) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2011
The aroma was fruity sweet with a lot of booze. The flavor had a crisp bread and yeast feel with a bit of bitter at the back. Nice clean and dry finish, quite drinkable. Nice for the hot months

22 oz Bottle. Pours amber golden in color with a pure white creamy head. The aroma is very grassy with a touch of citrus. Flavor is very hoppy with a coppery note to the finish.

22 oz bomber. Pours a deep orange caramel amber with a large foamy light cream colored head. Aroma of V-8 vegetable juice, barley, sour notes and faint floral hops. Taste of vegetables, barley, acidic notes and sourness. I agree with blankboy that this one is infected. Could barely touch this one. Drain pour.
