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!

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Elegant lemon resin nose with lavender. Deep orange hue with a frothy long lasting head. Rich biscuit toffee sweetness with herbaly hops for a nice balance. Well-carbonated, medium mouth feel, lovely piney finish. Well-made IPA with just the right amount of restraint and expression of balance.

OldMrCrow (2119) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Bottle courtesy of acrdz.

Nice amber pour, tons of long-lived lacing. Really nice citric aroma, but the flavor is a letdown afterward. Chalky malts, slightly sour-grassy hops that come off understated in comparison to the stage set by the aroma. Not bad, perfectly drinkable, but nothing like an IPA standout.

hopscotch (10009) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Bottle… Clear golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Big time grapefruit notes rest upon an undercurrent of pine, caramel and toffee. Light to medium-bodied with a mildly creamy mouthfeel and sluggish carbonation. Well-balanced. Citrusy, earthy hop flavors. Lightly tart. Modestly bitter, drying finish.

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Thanks to BlackForestCO for the bottle!
Pours copper with a short-lived, foamy white head. Nose is full of herbal hop, some grapefruit and slight pine as well. Flavor is consistent here, loads of hop and floral outweighing the slight malts. This is really good beer for straightforward, delicious hop juice.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2008 Bottled: I could sit here and try to explain the complexities of the aromas and the flavours but it is much easier to put it this way: The hoppines is just insane!!! and I love it!!
