COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic American IPA with lots of floral punch and assertive hop presence. Hopped with Nugget, Palisade and Amarillo colored to a reddish hue thanks to Munich and Aromatic malts.

Thanks to Kramer for this. Pours a amber color with a great hoppy aroma of citrus and pine. Flavor is fairly standard, but still good. Not anything too out of the ordinary, but a good IPA. More citrus hops and pine.

Pours a reddish amber with an off- white head. Aroma of citrus and caramel. Taste is malty with a little nutty flavor. Offset with a lightly citrus hop bite. Mellow for an IPA. But good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An okay crisp brew. Has a bit of a nice spice taste blended with the hops, smooth aftertaste with standard bitter hop flavor.

Bottle from Brian shared with my tasting buddies. Coppery amber with a solid off white head. Big pine and citrus aroma over a toffee background. Medium body and carbonation, quite dry with a lingering bitterness. The hops come on quickly with lots of bitterness supported by a study caramel sweetness. A very nice IPA in the West Coast tradition.

dpjuart (1049) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2008
10/7/08 - Draft at brewpub. Pours orange amber with foamy, off-white head, good lacing. Nose is pine and citrus hops with a good dose of caramel and toffee. Taste is moderately bitter to rather bitter with a good toffee and caramel background and lots of hop flavor, grapefruit, pine, floral notes, all towards the end with bitter and perfumy notes lingering well into the after. A great replacement/hold over until DD’s can return. Heck, I hope they keep this on the menu, too.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle, courtesy kramer. Pours copper color, with creamy white head and very thick lacing. Nose has sharp piney hops, some vanilla, mango and other tropical elements. Bitter hops hit first, with some nice tropical fruit to follow. Crisp, drinkable and very bitter, but yummy.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Draft at Otts Pours a clear copper with a small white head. The head is gone fairly quickly. Has a very well mixed aroma of hops and malts with the hops just winning out. It is very well blended. Has a solid mouthfeel and good carbination. Packs a decent hoppiness and a good dry finish. On the light side of medium body for me but this is a good beer.

From a growler shared by TheCaptain. Thanks Mark. Served in a shaker glass. Clear amber pour with two inches of creamy off-white head. Smells sweet and piney with some fresh citrus zest floating about. The flavor is mostly of fresh citrus with a bit of pine and mango. It is really bursting with hop flavor but doesn’t have a ton of bitterness. Dangerously drinkable. Excellent.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2011
Enjoyed from a 22oz bomber in an English pint glass. The nose shows a pleasant malt character, along with a tea-like herbal note. However, it shows age, and lacks the hop presence one would expect from an American-style IPA. The palate is malt-forward, again showing a very pleasant complexity, reminiscent of a very high-quality Vienna lager. Munich comes through, especially. Carbonation is nicely calibrated. The finish is lightly malty and clean. Overall, it would be great to try the beer fresh, but a nice effort, even after a far longer time than the brewer likely intended.
