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!

Several samples from Jwillis at Lukas Liquors on a Saturday afternoon. Pours copper orange with some khaki head. The aroma is robust with American piney hops, and caramel malts. Body is is on the full side, with lingering bitterness. Good stuff for sure.

JoeinDahlem (1342) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2007
Golden color with filmy, white head. Hoppy aroma with tinges of lemon and grapefuit. Flavor is mildly bitter, lemony, and even a bit musty. (What yeasts did they use in there?... Could that have all come from the hops?) The citrus adds an element of rfreshment to a beer that nevertheless finishes bitter and dry. Great summer IPA for washing down a grilled burger.

extremeicon (112) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Bright, clear orange color with an insignificant white head. Almost overpowering floral/pine hop aroma that’s mirrored in the taste - not bad bad by any means but perhaps a bit too piney for my palate.

12oz bottle. Filtered and golden hued. Finger width of bone white head. Good soapy zesty citrus nose. Slightly earthy. Medium to full bodied. Clinging head. Medium malts but a big hop palate. Moderate bitterness. Orange nuances mixed with resinous and soapy pine hop flavors. Great flavors and drinkability. I will be having many for of these in the future!

Indra (2662) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAY 23, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2008 12oz. bottle. Satisfyingly strong hop aroma, fresh, green and citric with notes of tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest and woodsy pine, along with a mere suggestion of lurking toasty malt sweetness. Deep, clear golden amber color with a rapidly fading head. Flavor is likewise juicy, resinous and full of hop character from start to finish, with a resonant, drying bitterness present, and along with the potent, nearly overriding blend of citric and pine flavors, there exists a gentle malt undercurrent. Regardless, the hops are utterly, undeniably dominant. Oily, and a bit rough on the palate, very lightly warming with a medium body. Hop craving satiated, if nothing else.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Poured a kinda burnt orange color. Aroma is very piney with some caramel base. Tastes sweet at first followed by bitter citrus and grapefruit. I remember this being fairly well balanced, leaning more towards citrus and pine flavors than the others, while not being over the top. Pretty nice.

Nice clear caramel colored pour with a lasting white head. Aroma is full of citrusy goodness, hops are dominate - that’s a good thing! Palate is light with the perfect amount of carbonation. Good citrusy hop flavor, maybe just a touch sweet.
