clear copper color, moderate nice white head that stays and lots lacing. a moderately strong hop flavor with a pretty good malty back bone. mouthfeel is full and somewhat creamy. An excellant example of an IPA that I would drink again

Drake (9012) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 18, 2010
22 ounce bottle from a Teeter in Greensboro, NC. Pours a lightly hazy pale yellow color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of fresh hops with some herbal notes and a toffee backbone. The taste is very bitter herbal and citrus hops with some pale malty notes. Medium bodied.

ttutony (709) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Clear, almost orange color in the glass. Earthy hop aromas with notes of pine. Flavors on the palate are mostly hops as well with some fruity notes. Nice bitterness on the finish.

LtJudge (468) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Pours a golden amber/yellow color with nice white head. Great bright aromas of hops,pine citrus and caramel malt hiding in the back. Flavor is of a light bodied hop assault that fades into bitter finish.This would be a awesome IPA if there was more malt backing to it.But the aromas is still awesome!

EithCubes (5091) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Here’s an IPA for rating no. 2222. Bomber. Piny, resinous nose with pronounced floral nose and light Simcoe-driven must (cat pee). Light caramel and dark, weirdly rotting tropical fruit. A little peach and rindy citrus. Simcoe is dominating the Cascade here. Pours a bright, clear orange with a lacing, rocky off-white head. Taste is very rough and tumble, dry with medium-strong bitterness, resin. Faint floral and fruity sweetness but no perfume. Pine. Taste is smooth with a lasting aftertaste, medium body that sort of roughs up the tongue and throat first before settling down. Good, firm IPA, fits more in the style of IIPA, missing only the extra booze.

DuffMan (7037) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a thick white head that leaves ropy lace for the entire glass. Resinous hops and grapefruit rind dominate the aroma. Hop-driven palate, very resinous, stemmy with minty notes, with a nice long bitter finish. Malts give just enough support, but the coniferous hops drive this beer all the way. I liked it.

mensch (259) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAR 17, 2010
A tasty American IPA from New Belgium, quite a change for them! Citrusy Cascades mix with other aromas of flint, mint and onions? Smooth and bitter, not as malty as I’d like. Nice hop flavors in the finish. Kind of middle-of-the-road, not in the NW, CO or CA IPA style.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 16, 2010
On tap at PB Bar & Grill (Pacific Beach, CA): Pours a clear gold with amber highlights and topped with a light white head, thick lacing. Aromatic notes of freshly ripened orange and grapefruit, florals, light earth, and a dusting of light sweet malts against a bitter backbone. Spruce and pine wash over the tongue, as well as bubblegum, butter-soaked citrus, light bread malt, and a little spice at the back of the palate. Sweet creamy mouthfeel, in no way that’s cloying. Moderate carbonation. Nice sweet finish. Drinkability: Opulent and fresh. Underrated! Pairing: $2 tacos on Tuesday. Rebuy: Yes. #345 on 16032010, DG.
