COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The devil made us do it. From the ABV and IBU figures to the fiendish use of Cascade, Perle and Willamette hops, Lucifer was whispering in our ears the entire time. Citrus and pine scents greet you and are followed by the sharp bitterness expected of an IPA. The beer’s true wickedness is revealed in the smooth Pale, Crystal 30 and wheat malts that surreptitiously broaden the beer’s appeal to more than just hopheads.

Bottle courtesy of Strykzone. Pours a cloudy gold, with a white head and light lacing. Nose of caramel malts with lots of hops, including pine, flowers, and citrus. Medium in body and clean and smooth in mouthfeel. The flavor is hops with the citrus and now some pine dominating. Th finish is dry and shows bitterness with pine all the way. Multidimensional IPA with lots going for it.

From notes. Tasted on 6/28/11 from a 12oz bottle purchased at Siciliano’s. Pours cloudy orange with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to even lace, leaving thick, sticky residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is candied orange peel, caramel malt and spicy, earthy yeast. The flavor is exactly the same with candied orange peel, caramel malt, spicy, earthy yeast, and nice hops bitterness. The body light with average carbonation and a long candied orange peel and bitter finish.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2011
12oz bottle picked up at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor, MI. Bottled on Aug 17, 2011. Pours a mostly clear, orange-red colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is sweeter orange citrus with some biscuity caramels offering a light sweetness. A light mix of florals and grass with a touch of grapefruit rind. Flavor is lemon-rinds, bigger florals, and some grass up front with a sweeter aspect. Some light caramels and a touch of biscuit come in along with some oranges and grapefruits. Gets a bit herbal into the finish where the bitterness increases, but there is some sweetness. Dry, floral, orange-sweet hoppiness, and a touch of bready caramel in the finish before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. Some sweeter orange, floral hops and a lighter caramel that is balanced and easy drinking. Not bad.
