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.

The slab cabin pours amber clear with a weak head that hugs my glass. As for aroma it is of carmel malts, citrus hops, a slight spice, and a pine like hop scent. I could taste sweet malts, mild bitterness from the hops, and citrus. The finish is pleasant. The bitterness doesn’t take away from the flavor of the beverage. My palate was not hit hard but it does impact it. Overall I enjoyed this. It’s worth trying.

The beer has a decent color with a nice reddish/brown hue to it, a nice white one finger head, and decent lacing on the glass. The beer has a decent citrusy hoppy scent and a mild medium malty finish. The beer tastes decent with a medium citrusy flavor that is followed by a well balanced maltiness to it. The mouthfeel is decent as the beer is well carbonated and has a lingering bitterness from the hops. Overall, a decent IPA but it doesmt blow you away..but decent.

hopscotch (8534) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2009
Bottle… C&P’sLYFO Throwdown… Fairly clear burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, fat-bubbled, white head. The nose is grassy and piney. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Perfectly balanced - much like a PNW IPA - with a pinch of salt. Crisp, moderately bitter finish. Bottle provided by otakuden! Video = http://homepage.mac.com/maltajo/RATEBEER/iMovieThe

Pours copper with a lasting white head. Smells of earthy hops, peppery. Tastes of earth, tea, some dry malty hints.

Beerman6686 (3870) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2010
This poured a nice amber color with a large white head. Aroma was nice medium amount of floral and citrus hops but nothing too crazy. Flavor was much the same at the beginning a nice blend of different types of hops, but unfortunately the bitterness fades quickly into a rather bland biscuty finish.

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.

deyholla (5972) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Bottle thanks to Brian! Poured a clear deep amber with a tan head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma had a grapefruit note as well as grass and a hint of backing grain. Flavor was similar with the grapefruit being more dominate and just a hint of backing hay and grass.

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2011
Nice citrus notes on the nose. Pours a ruby brown with a light white head. Big hop explosions on the tongue especially if you aerate it. The taste lingers nicely.

Blairgus (2416) - California, USA - JUL 12, 2011
12 July 2011, bottle. light amber, slightly pinkish, clear, steady bubbles. frothy tan head. sweet malt and rosy hops in the nose. med/thin watery body w/ some carbonation. can’t say i’m a huge fan of this. it is arather nettle/briar hop flavor. there’s no real sweetness or malt flavour and the hops aren’t the best to rest a beer on.

Pours a rusty orange with an off white head and aroma of hops, pine, and grapefruit. Taste is sweet, of hops, pine, grapefruit, malt, and caramel with a heavy bitter, dry finish, Drinkable, good IPA
