COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is insanely dry hopped with Centennial Hops. This pale copper colored ale has a flowery hop aroma and a bold hop bitterness. Hop Heads Only Please!

Strongly hopped, not very well balenced, but as a hop lovers beer, they often are far from that. Its good, but nothing to make me want to choose it over some of the more popular and well regarded choices when it comes to IPAs.

Aroma is really nice. Hops, pine, floral and citrus all come through. Appearance isn’t bad... a bit more effervescent than I would have liked. Flavor is pretty good, but waivers a lot, going from bitter to malty to bitter. It doesn’t do this really smoothly, which is a minus, but the flavors are alright, which is a bonus.

Big hiss as the cap comes off, pouring mostly translucent and bright, pretty orange. Booming frothy tan head reaches an inch tall in the tulip glass. Honey soaked hops kick start the aroma, amplified by pine, citric orange kisses and melons. A damn good aroma, but it’s all downhill from here. Tin is the first flavor to come to mind, followed by orange juice (but we’re nowhere near 100% natural or Florida squeezed.) Hops produce a potpourri floral derivative, like an elderly woman’s bathroom that has too pine-indoctrinated jars stashed away in every nook and cranny. Highly spritsy, but its attempt toward aggression is laughable. Hops intonations are whisked away by metal and a perfunctory artificial malt sweetness. Finishes like sun-spoiled orange juice. New Holland - I’m through with you.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Top notch IPA with its bread like malt sweetness perfectly balanced by the resinous pine grapefruit Pacific Northwest hops, finishing with an intensely bitter dryness. I need another one NOW!

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2005
Grapefruit, orange and pine resin hop nose. Clear amber copper with low white head that recedes to partial cover. Grapefruit, orange and resiny hop flavours with assertive bitterness that is rough on the tongue. Low malt profile. Strong, pointy, fine-bubbled carbonation. Very dry, medium-light body. On tap at Ashley’s in Ann Arbor, MI.

DrnkMcDermott (2870) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Bottled. Nice amber pour with a big fizzy head that leaves some clingies to the side. In the light, the body shows many shades, like a dark center in a frozen beer. Dry hopping is nicely evident, although it’s no longer mentioned on the label. Spicy, peppery and resiny hops. Still a nice bit of biscuit malts in the balance. Sterling example of an American IPA.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2005
Hazy amber w/ finger of pale tan foam. Fresh, grapefruity aroma w/ caramel notes. Resiny feel. Big hoppy flavour w/ lots of sweet, sticky malts (caramel, toffee). Dry, bitter finish.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2005
12 oz bottle - Pours fairly transparent amber with a decent offwhite creamy head that lingers and laces some. Aroma is all c hops.. Lots of citrus, floral aroma. Flavor is much the same. Some caramel malts there but mostly overrun by the hops. On the palate this is a little unbalanced on the hop side. Still very drinkable though and a nice bitter floral finish keeps you coming back for more. Not bad...

Another nice IPA from Michigan. This time more on the flowery side, very aromatic, and not too much emphasis on the malts underneath those lovely hops. Not the most well rounded, and i didnt think it was THAT bitter, but I certainly still enjoyed it.
