This IPA has 11 hop additions using 5 different hops. The bouquet is of strong citrus and pine with a hint of spiciness. Initial tastes will follow the bouquet with citrus and pine followed by a soothing mint at the back end. The mint is very subtle and can be noticed as the beer warms. Available Spring and Summer.

cloudy amber (theres hop sludge at the bottom of the bottle, careful if you donít like that). nice rocky white head with good retention, a little irregular lacing. some citrus, slight tropical fruitiness, stone fruit, caramel, spruce, a slightly sugary sweetness that comes and goes, subtle (but noticeable) mint that lingers in the finish, fairly boozy. very bitter, medium sweet, not unbalanced. medium-full body, creamy feel, light carbonation, long bitter finish. looking at the other reviews i have to wonder if they tweaked the recipe since last year, because i really enjoyed this. itíd be horrible to drink in the heat, though.

(draught) hazy burnt orange with lasting creamy offwhite head. Nose of candied orange, minty nose, light resin/pine smells deliciously fresh. Taste is malty, lightly resiny, biscuity and malty but loving this. Medium to full body, oily palate finish.

Very nice looking, kinda tannish orange with a slight haze and a great big head that didnít want to go away and stuck heavily to the sides of the glass. A definite mint presence is noted in the nose and taste. Sticky, resinous hops dominate, with piney notes being up front, along with some citrus. Itís a little sweet and the malt base is ample enough to balance out the plentiful hops. Body is medium, carbonation is medium, drinkability is good for one, a bit overpowering if youíre wanting more than one. Alcohol is not noticeable much in the nose or taste but thereís a bit of warming on the way down. Itís likeable, if not outstanding. I would certainly try another of this breweryís beers after trying this one.

I bought a six pack at whole foods. The 125 IBUs almost scared me, and I'm a hop head. Was a nice level of bitterness and had a noticeable mint aftertaste. I tend to like a more floral hop and pine taste for my IPAs, this one was more plain bitter. Overall very drinkable and I really liked the mint. And it's 7.7% - cheers to that! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Could smell the pine but not the mint. Taste is very bitter with mostly a pine hop flavor and a very small amount of mint flavor. Good IPA but the mint aftertaste kind of didnít go well for me. Had to give a good score on the overall due to the unique mint flavor. First time I have seen anyone use mint in an IPA and have to admit it is interesting even though it didnít really hit the spot for me.

Pours hazy gold, with a floral hops aroma. And it tastes great. I will be back to buy a growler. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a delightful IPA with all the robust character that the 11 hop varieties would suggest and a delicious crisp mint finish that is subtle but not lost. Full lingering, toffee colored head clings to this cloudy, unfiltered brew. Effervescence is balanced and doesn't void the more subtle flavors going on here. Kudos, No Label! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2013 Tap. Clear amber with a big whitish head and nice lacing. Aroma of pale and caramel malts, citrus and floral hops, and very light mint. Taste is malty, mildly sweet and bitter, with very light mint. Medium bodied. Good beer, though I would have liked the mint to come through a tad more.

On tap at The Holy Grail. The beer pours a hazy golden-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of pine and pineapple, with a hint of biscuit malt. The flavor is very similar. The pine and orange citrus notes stand out. There is a good amount of bitterness. I get a very light mint aftertaste but I doubt I would get it if I wasnít looking for it. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A good IPA, but definitely lacking in the mint character.
