UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 On tap at Sunset Grill. Served in a pint glass. A frothy off white head on this murky light amber brew. Strong hop aromas. Floral and spice. Plenty of bitterness. Body on the heavy side, but still very enjoyable. A good pick. Re-rate. 6-pack canned. Now available at Julios. Fantastic! Pucker up with this one. Definately not a "starter" IPA!

La robe a du style et la tête une coiffe qui lui va bien. Ses parfums de fleurs, de conifères et malts pâles me plaisent bien. Son goût franc de houblons en feuille verte est pondéré par des céréales toastées. Son corps de moyenne densité pétille avec réussite et montre une texture crémeuse. La finale est modérément amère. Facile à boire. Merci à Vincent pour la canette.

Strong in the IPA category you are, hmm. Wonderfully alcoholic for a single IPA you are. Green head flies bite hard and fast. This beer mirrors that. It's pretty good. I am swayed because I'm local. But make a good beer and can it and I will drink it. Maybe add hop leaves. Like alchemist? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Some decent hop flavors over a sticky yet astringent malt sweetness. Not bad, but tincture with an odd dissatisfying linger.
