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!

Thanks to brewblackhole. Amber color. Smell of hops, malt, citrus, orange peal and pine. Taste of malt, hops, grapefruit, citrus zest and pepper.

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.

(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.

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 (7979) - 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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Ride ’em, Pachederm! Hazy orange appearance, fulsome, fresh white head. Fresh, vibrant, floral aroma...lively...orange, tangerine, mango....abso-lovely. Tastin’...more of the same. Fresh, delicious, fruit aplenty. There’s some mango in there, with the orange and grapefruit, just gorgeous. Very even-keeled, despite it’s 7% abv,...no, wait, maybe not....but it’s still smooth, and tasty, and memorable. An ideal IPA. I could grab this in a pinch with nary a quarrel.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2008
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007. A hazy amber beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of grass and grapefruit. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of grass and caramel, leaidng to a dry bitter finish. The body is a bit watery.

Deep golden color with a creamy off white head. Boy the nose in this beer just screamed christmas tree when I first poured it with citrus hops coming out as it warmed. Tons of hops in this beer. Candied orange peel, pine, grapefruit, some lemon peel, bread and caramel sweetness. This is a true hop head IPA.

12 oz. bottle from heemer77, thanks Eric. pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a short lived off-white head. wonderful citrus aroma and flavor with grapefruit, orange, lemon and just a hint of pineapple. nicely backed with some caramel malt, but not so much that the citrus is ever overtaken. nicely done and quite drinkable.

Pours a hazy light orangeish color with a white head. Fantastic aromas of grapefruit and pine with a sweet malt backing. Flavor is like biting into a fresh hop! Wow, fantastic, almost over the edge hop flavor,but has just enough malt backing to keep it from falling over.the edge.Wonderful grapefruit aftertaste! Thanks Brewblachole!
