growler. Light copper ale w/ mild white head, good lacing. Smells like heady, clean, muscadine fueled hops. Huge bite, but soo fucking drinkable. I get pine/evergreens & citrus yet can never escape a sweet grape ape or muscadine flavor... I am getting over a cold. Still pretty Perfect and a new addition to the the top IPA repertoire.

As Fozzie the bear once said..." Wokka Wokka Wokka!" Can shared by UDBeernut....and then Sloth. All the while I had just bought a 4 pack of this. Science proves yet again that great minds think alike. Bring it on...Dale. hazy orange with a thick oily head. Strong biting nose that seamlessly transfers thru the body. Concentrated hops at all points. Lovely and complex lacing.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 Hoppy and strong version of the Dale’s pale ale. Excellent, but not for the weak of heart. If you like hops then step right up.

Draft at Eulogy. Poured a dark amber with a big pillowy white head that left lots of lace. Big dry hop flavors. Bigger than most IPAs but not quite a double. Some grassy ginger notes. Lots of pine resin. Burned citrus pith. Darker color suggests some malt but not much malt flavor is present. Nice palate. Full taste. Dry finish.

Can shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours amber with a thin head. Nose is onion and garlic hops, with sharp alcohol and sweet malt. Taste is...whoa...dirt and sticky, dank hops, onions and sweet malt. It’s thinnish, nicely carbonated and slick. Disappointed.

Pours a beige color. Smell is citrus and hops. Taste is hops, bitter, citrus, more bitter. Overall a pretty good beer.

Pours a translucent copper with a thick fluffy head. Crazy lacing on this one. Aroma is great, hop attack, citrus all the way. Taste is a bit too malty but it's still pretty good. I'm glad I got to try this but it's not a regular ipa for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft… Clear dirty-orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Great retention and then there’s lots of thick lacework left behind, clinging tightly to the sides of my glass. The nose offers grapefruit, passionfruit and resiny pine. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor is bitter with a nice caramel malt backbone – some residual sweetness makes a brief appearance, but is then quickly decimated by bitter, rindy, pithy hops. Lengthy, tongue-numbing, medium bitter finish.
