Bottled on 06/20/12
Tasted on 8/14/12 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Bruisin’ Ales. Pours clear orange with a thick and fluffy white head that slowly recedes to rocky lace. The nose is dried citrus peel hops with some resin and a bit of caramel/bread malt. The flavor is the same, very dry and bitter, herbal citrus hops, with a light bread and caramel malt backbone. The body is fairly light with average carbonation and a long bitter herbal and citrus hops finish.

Drank from the bottle, aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is adequate, some bitter hops and light malt. Not too impressive. It’s actually quite bland.

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle from Appalachian vintner. Pours dark orange without much aroma. Had about 1/4 inch of white foam that leaves some lacing. Los of citrus and pine on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid for style.

guzzler67 (1495) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Hazy amber appearance with an average size, off white head and a fair amount on lacing. Muted, floral hop aroma with sweet malts in the background. Role reversal in the taste. Sweet caramel malts are in the forefront and various hop flavors bolster the aftertaste. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish.

maxwelldeux (3609) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Pours a golden color with minimal head. Not a lot of aroma to this one, though I can get a faint whiff of hops. Decent hoppiness to the taste, though it’s not too strong.

dphoxie (120) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Such a drinkable IPA! There is all the hops you need and a nice balance with the malts too. The hops bitterness is occasionally a little metalic, but mostly its just a firm earthiness. Fairly clean taste.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2012
Originally reviewed: 4/13/10. 12oz bottle poured into my pint glass. Pours a cloudy dark gold. There’s a large bone-white head billowing on the top. Retains well; leave lost of sticky lace on the glass. Scents of flowers, tart citrus zest, some light pepper, and bread. The body is creamy with moderate depth. Carbonation level is good. This is a pretty spicy IPA overall. Some white pepper at the onset. Definitive bittering hops in the middle. There’s a bit of honey finish on the sips. Aftertaste is on the spicy side as well. Not a bad IPA by any means. I like it. A little different than my go-to IPAs, but that’s not a bad thing.

obguthr (3782) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2012
Grassy hop nose, somewhat stale. Cloudy amber, medium yellow head, full of floaties. Overripe orange, stale grassy hops. Hints of apricot come and go, particularly in the end. Bottled on date is 110311, so it doesn’t appear to stand the test of time very well.
