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!

A yellow appearance with a thin soapy white head. The aroma is lemons, perfume, and grapefruit. The flavor contains a good balance of malt and hops. A lot of lemon sticks out in the flavor. Not very aggressive for an IPA but a good beer nonetheless.

On draft at Savor in DC (5/17/08). The spruce/pine hops dominated this one for me. Some bitterness in the finish, but not much else.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Great IPA in a great bottle. A nice mix of a big west coast and and english IPA. Aroma of citrus and pine hops. Flavor is also very hoppy, citrus and pine, with malt backing. Finish is hoppy bitter. A great IPA.

soyorganic (283) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Bottle: poured a hazy copper color with a huge head. Smell of citrus and pine hops. Heavy hop flavor with a citrus taste. Very strong up front but not much of the lingering aftertaste. Has an earthy flavor. Good IPA but not my favorite.

Wonderful piney nose, good IPA color. Slightly lighter in the palate than expected. Moderate bitterness. A nice IPA.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Thanks to brewblackhole. Amber color. Smell of hops, malt, citrus, orange peal and pine. Taste of malt, hops, grapefruit, citrus zest and pepper.

after4ever (6129) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2008
12-oz. Thanks, Skoi! This one saved the day for ipas a little bit. Cloudy orange body with some brightness to it, and a nice modest creamy white head. Dusty peach nose--not quite full-on into grapefruit territory, but that’s lurking just around the corner from here. Nice caramel underneath the mid-palate, with fairly generous peachy tang on top of that. Crisp, refreshing finish. Good stuff.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2008
(Savor, 12oz bottle) Small off-white head atop clear light amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, juicy grapefruit, some pineapple/pine. Taste is medium sweet, pine/grapefruit, orange/floral. Medium body, some resin.

jefcon (1391) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2008
This golden orange beer has a pungent aroma of hops, even from some distance from the glass. Lots of hop aggressiveness, with plenty of floral notes, pine spice, and exotic fruit from the hops. The stuff just tastes really, really, fresh. Good weight on the tongue and a lingering finish that achieves some balance from the small amount of neutral backing malts in the beer.

3fourths (8036) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Bottle sample pours clear amber. Nose is smelly, oily, vinuous hop oil character, resinous and tangy but not altogether well-formed. Sharp mouthfeel and tangy and somewhat fruity with tobacco and tea leave and a light dose of caramel malt, but overall it’s a bit plain.
