22 picked up a few nights ago at Brewer’s Haven in Boise... Enjoyed tonight... Pours a clear orange with a decent enough white head... spotty lacing. Interesting hop profile... good citrus/resinous pine with some earthy notes.... a bit too much residual maltiness for my liking, but still well done. Flavor mirrors the aroma with a nice balance between the bitterness and the pale maltiness... the citrus really blooms as this warms.... a very well balanced brew.

The aroma has a heavy dose of caramel and tangerine combined with other citrus flavors. It is an amber color with a orange hue to it. The head is a fluffy off white. There is a taste of grapefruit, tangerine, and a malty finish.

22 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Muddy brownish-orange pour with a huge frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, tangerine, and grapefruit rind. Bitter citrusy hops are the star here with a sturdy malt backbone that lends caramel and brown sugar. There is no indication on the bottle, and I don’t believe this is old store stock, but this has a bit of a barley wine feel to it more than an IPA. I can’t guarantee that is what the brewer intended but the end result is quite good, just not what I anticipated from an IPA.

Deep amber pour. Fresh citrus hop aroma. Flavour has a nice sweet, caramel, almost sherry-like malt base with a nice balance of west coast hops. Good.

Balanced, easy-drinking IPA with a good malt backbone (toast, caramel, light toffee). Its hop side (grass, plants, citrus), however, doesn’t blow me away. Every time I drink this I think, yeah, this is well made and good ... but I yearn for bolder hop flavors and aromas.

Bomber thanks to michaelinwa. Pours dark amber with a big fluffy head that fades slowly and leave chunky lacing. Very nice aroma wet grassy, juicy grapefruit, pine, light caramel, and flowers. Taste is more malty than the aroma suggests. Sweet caramel/fruity malt mixes very well with the moderate bitterness. Pine and citrus hops come through the most and there’s a nice spicy hop finish too. Mouthfeel is more like an american strong or imperial red, fairly thick and chewy. They call this an IPA but it’s probably more like an imperial red. Very good beer but definitely not for everyone. People expecting a light easy to drink IPA will be disappointed.

Pours two and half fingers on a clear dark straw colored body. The aroma is spicy with some lemon and a little earthy. The taste is moderate pine and lemon bitterness backed up by a big malt bill. It finishes with a long pine bitter note. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a fairly clear amber orange with a medium beige head. Aroma of light pine, metallic notes and earthy malt. Flavour brings out fresh piney hops, some floral notes, and earthy malt. Really well-balanced and more pleasant flavours than aromatics. Good stuff.
