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.

Interesting can thanks to Cletus. Pours a nice pale slightly amber orange with medium white head, decent lacing. Aroma nice of citrus hops, grass, and a decent malt backbone. Flavor matches well, but has an earthy character that some IPAs do that still leaves a good flavor, but knocks it down a few notches in my book. Mouthfeel is a bit slick, medium bodied, and leaves a nice lasting bitterness.

CamdenD (1105) - 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 (486) - 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.

Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2014
Can at home in Salisbury, CT. Pours mostly clear gold with a frothy white head. Inviting nose, with some pithy tangerine, orange, pale bread and melon. Light to medium sweet with some bitter pine needles and citrus rind. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly resinous on the finish with bitter grass and pine, dry melon, more orange and tangerine. Decent.

Can. Yellow pour with white head. Light grassy, citrus, herbal hop aromas. Decent herbal and citrus hop flavors.

12 oz can shared by b3shine. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice bitter character, more earthy, grassy, toasted malt, light fruit character, solid enough ipa.

b3shine (5844) - Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Can to half-pint glass. Looks good; a hazy dark apricot with foamy eggshell head. Smells solid; bitter, but nicely balanced with the medium-bodied malt profile. Some citrus zest. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. An enjoyable classically bitter IPA.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Lightly hazy, dark golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, orange, and light pine. Taste of orange, light pine, resiny, and a bitter grapefruit finish.

Damico (2684) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma and flavor both bring balanced sweet orange flavors, almost like orange candy, but the sweetness is so smooth and subtle with light zest ending so pleasantly on the palate The body is full and light at the same time!

KyotoLefty (6724) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2014
Tap at Modern Apizza. Citrus and tropical hop nose, meaty golden malts, peaches and oranges. Decently balanced and tasty beer, though it was way too flat when served to us, which was quite a downer.

Extra from Thomas. Can, no date. It’s an IPA, above average bitterness. Not much else. Serviceable, and drinkable.
