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.

Ibrew2or3 (7101) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Squat 11.5oz bottle pours copper with tan head. The aroma has spicy hops, citrus flavored cotton candy and mild earthiness as well as bits of lemon, lime and flower pedals. The taste is spicy hops, rose pedals, grapefruit tartness and a mild level of malt sweetness. It picks up a moderate amount of earthiness and more flowers as well as a touch of yeastiness into the finish.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle pours clear amber color with off white head. Aroma is pine and a strong nose of caramel. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is pine bittering hops, has a strong caramel malt backbone, and finishes semi sweet. Overall, this doesn’t have the hop punch I like in my IPA’s.

AWISLguy (1423) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Bottle from East side liquors in Traverse City. (great 1950s bottle, by the way) Pours hazy orange-tan. Aroma is faintly pine and citrus. Taste is the resiny pine, some bitter grapefruit, some malt. Finish is bitter, but fairly light.

JoeMcPhee (8575) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2011
Deep amber pour with a white head. The nose is soft and sweet but also quite dusty. Lots of caramel malt but there is also a lot of distinct diacetyl/DMS character. Moderate bitterness and a lingering sticky sweetness. This is a gross IPA.

TappedOut (3) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2011 does not count
Clean and easy to drink for a full flavored beer. In a taste test with 5 other IPAs this was the winner.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Murky amber with a large frothy beige topper and some lacing. Aroma of mildly skunked grains, grassy hops and some malt. Taste of grassy hops, pale malt, mild fruit and something else I can’t quite pinpoint. Thinner than expected with a moderate bitter fininsh.

Champagne Cellars. Very heady lacey orange coloured body. Slightly pleasant aroma. Median mouthfeel, a tad creamy. Very drinkable tasty C hop orangey IPA. Just a drop astringent in those last drops of the bottle. Very good.
