COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ready to buck convention? We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from Englad to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful - American style. We've added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character. Hop on, hold tight, and enjoy the ride!

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a huge 3 finger foamy beige head that leaves delicate lacing. The nose is ripe citrus hops and malt. Taste is tangerine, ripe pink grapefruit and light caramel with a tart grapefruit finish. Medium mouth feel. Nice and refreshing IPA. Reminds me a lot of Four Peaks Hop Knot.

Strykzone (5062) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Pours a nice copper with a big frothy white head. Beautiful lacing. Aroma is full of grapefruit with a good amount of caramel. Grapefruit was not nearly as dominant in the flavor. It offered more caramel, pine, grass, and spice. A very nice IPA.

machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Poured a brilliant and clean dark yellow, light amber with little head but the carbonation was good and left lacing. The aroma was strongly grapefruit hops with little malt. There was a strong citrus flavor, particularly grapefruit along with some pine notes at first, the bitterness is right up front and dominant. As the beer warms the bitterness mellows and the beer really mellows out and blends into a nicely balanced drink. Good job.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2009
Bottle. Brilliantly clear with a nice steady thick white head. Really nice looking light copper with slow-rising carbonation. Aroma of American hops, light pine and big citrus. Flavor is clean with understated bitterness and good flavor. Highly balanced with a good creaminess and some light carbonation on the tongue. Very easy-drinking, really nice IPA.

JAXSON (529) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2009
12 oz bottle. Tons of fresh cedar in the aroma. Spicy and fresh. Pours a clear medium amber with a fluffy head. Prickly near the back of the tongue, pleantantly bitter, a powerful hop presence gives way, a little shorter and drier than some west coast brethren, but very sharp and clean. Oranges and grass make themselves known. Very good. Thanks Malcom!

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Bottle courtesy of aplusbreaks. Pours gold with a generous white head. Smells of resin, some caramel, some yogurt. Tastes peppery and earthy with a spicy sweet finish.

The best IPA I have ever had. Refreshing aroma with a smooth sweetness taste.

scooterbub (870) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber color with a decent beige head. Taste is of pine, hops, some caramel and citrus. Aroma is much the same. For the price this is a pretty good beer.

Bottle, thanks to acrdz. Clear amber with a white head. Nice grassy hay hoppy aroma. Medium body. Great hop flavors of grass and grapefruit on a sweet caramel malt base. Very easy drinking ipa.
