COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one's a beauty; a rich and full bodied India Pale Ale with complex malt character blended with cascade and noble hops. The end result is a beer that satisfies the "hop head" out there and won't chase away the newcomer. Drink it. It's good.

Vigorous pour into Alchemist stemless glass. Pours a cloudy amber color with a very thick foamy head that lingers for a long time. A very strong hoppy aroma that is quite pleasant. Unfortunately the flavor doesn't back it up. It's there, but more subtle. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth with a nice biting finish. Heavy lacing left behind on glass.

arminjewell (8474) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Pour out of 12 oz can, clear golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, lemon, slight pine, grass, touch of spice, some slight pineapple. Taste was a mix of orange, pine, slight lemon and spice notes into a bit of earth, bread, some slight herbal notes, finishing fairly bitter. Pretty simple, but tasty nonetheless.

DrSilverworm (8164) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Pint on tap at the hotel in Oxford, CT. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good ridges of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Light slick. Piney, citrusy hop, a nice amount of it. Moderate bitter, lighter sweet. Satisfying, swiggable IPA.

Nice IPA with a golden color and a tart tangy taste, no bad aftertaste to detract from the crisp clean taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Extra from trade. Floral and pefumey. Light bitter. Not bad, not super exciting either.

jbrana (551) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Nice, balance IPA, with a prominent citrus / tropical hop flavor. Not overly sweet, though it does have a pretty nice malt body that is clean, and neutral and allows the hops to shine.

CamdenD (1113) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 24, 2014
This is an extremely well-made IPA. Strongly bitter yet still citrus-like on the tongue. Not one-dimensional. Underrated here.

fishonmyplane (500) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Strong flavor for a flagship IPA - lots of west coast character in here. Some citrus, but mainly this is dominated by resiny hop bitterness. A nice everyday beer for hopheads.
