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.

DiarmaidBHK (4056) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Draft at Jolly Pumpkin. Pours with a slight orange tint. Slight floral aroma. A bit of hop flavor on the tongue but a lot of bitterness to wake you up on the finish. Solid example of style.

wedgie9 (2577) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2011
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.

Draft at the brewpub. Slight haze in the honey colored beer. A smallish off white head. The nose is pine, ligjter caramel, and a hint of spice. The flaver is also pine and floral hops with grain and citrus. This is a solid IPA.

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.

chibuck (3504) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2011
bottle... murky gold body, light white head... the nose is too light but decent, a bit of pineapple and pine... tastes better then nose, more flavor than anticipated not a lot of hops, a sweet, drinkable ipa but kind of boring

strongpieman (1644) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle. Definite pine and floral hop aroma. Orange amber color, tall foamy off-white head... a little cloudy. Sharp bitterness but is missing something to make this a better IPA. It grew on me a little as I drank more of the bottle. Overall, not bad. I would have at the restaurant.

garrison (808) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Purchased from "Ludlow Wines" in Cincinnati, Ohio - Alright, this is not a great American IPA, but I purchased it and find it passable for the style. Now live with my opinion or die with it on your mind.

EithCubes (5433) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Bottle. Piney nose is sticky with an earth/caramel base, otherwise I’m mostly pulling out Cascade here. Orange pour with a rocky beige/tan head. Taste is bittersweet, not terribly strong but cleansing. Light body a little watery, dryish malty finish with a little too much crystal, but the main course has bright and supple citrus, bendy like Crystal Light. Works for me.
