COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A unique India Pale Ale, showcasing our favorite hops. The Amarillo®, Simcoe®, and Nugget hops give this beer a bounty of hop flavor and aroma without too much bitterness in the finish.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2011
Deep amber pour with a tight white head. The aroma is very hoppy. Lots of dank hoppiness along with a touch of sweet fruit. Pine/citrus and a little bit of toasted malt underneath with a little bit of orange peel as well. Lots of fruit and a bit of soft sweetness in addition to that. Chewy resinous flavour with a touch of fruit. Clean and chewy but a little bit of sweetness coming through on the back. Tasty stuff really.

mcox90 (1563) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 18, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours amber/orange with a 1/2" off white head that lasts. Aroma is earthy with pine resin and light grains. Flavor is initially quite bitter & astringent, but there is a nice semi sweet malt profile that makes itself known after the first couple sips. Smooth, moderate bodied palate. Nice, solid IPA, I’ll buy this again.

nearbeer (3780) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 15, 2011
12 oz. Clear orange-amber with a huge spongy head that lingers. Crisp citrus, florals, earthy grain and caramel on the nose. Taste is earthy grain, butterscotch, and light caramel apple on the front. Bitter, earthy citrus and wooden hops enter quickly. Velvety soft, near-medium body is tingly with hops and smoothly carbonated. Almost seems to show more abv than 7.2% at times. Has the characteristic Shipyard twang of British ale yeast and/or kettle hops that make all their beers taste similar to me, but this one has a cleaner taste on top of that.

tommeagher (222) - Jersey City, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Super hoppy aroma. Cloudy browny haze. Malty, hoppy, dry, bitter. Long, bitter linger. A bit of spice to it. Not bad.

Edmoe (239) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Dark copper pour with thick off-white head. Good lacing. Strong piney aroma with hints of fruit and citrus. Flavor is very hoppy with pine. The slightest diacetyl is discernible but doesn’t detract too much. Good mouthfeel. A very good beer.

asheft (2544) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2011
[bottle] The aroma is strangely musty cookies and cream with some pine, faint strawberry, and biscuity caramel. Hazy reddish bronze under a lasting, flannel blanket. The flavour is spicy melanoidins balanced perfectly with grapefruit and orange peel bitterness. A bit of tingly sweet malt tickles the palate. Apricot accents. Light to medium body, assertive bitterness that fades out, medium carbonation.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 18, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a golden orangish color with a slight off white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is a earthy citrus hops with slight caramel malts. Taste is a nicely balanced hop citrus richness with a gentle and persistent final bitter bite within a present lightly sweet malty base. Smooth and medium bodied with good fizzy carbonation.

rejtable (1379) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
The last in a long line of big hoppy beer for the day. This was tasty. Certainly a strong hop presence, but you could also taste the grapefruity citrus. Good stuff.

IPAsavedMYlife (345) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Pours a lovely cloudy orange color. Head was creamy but dissipated quickly. You can really smell the simcoe hops in this one. After tasting this one the malt backbone doesn’t seem to mesh well with the hops. Flavors are grassy, lemony, and a good amount of spice character. This one finishes overly bitter. Although Portland is known for their breweries, this one is a weak spot. The nugget hops make this one a bit uneven. Enjoyment: 2/5
