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.

The aroma is citrus, floral, caramel. Standard IPA appearance, amber/gold, white head. The flavor is more earthy, floral, caramel is relegated to the background a little more. The finish is earthy, floral, mild but lingering. Medeium in body. Servicable IPA.

Out of a bottle. Pours a deep straw that is hazy. White head is nondescript. Medium mouthfeel. This is a very bitter IPA. Nose has some musty, mossy-ness. Disjointed flavor profile.

sample on tap at the Decatur Beer Festival on 10/16/10. golden pour with a white head. citrus hop nose with some toffee / bread notes... would like a stronger hop presence and less malt. medium body with nice citrus bitterness paired with more earthy notes and malts. lighter bitter finish.

unclemattie (4134) - Georgia, USA - SEP 18, 2010
12oz twist-off bottle. Pale orange amber color. Thin white head. Aroma of butter toffee and citrus hops. Citrus and butter... a strange combo. Flavor is a sweet malt. lots of caramel flavor. Finishes with a strong heavy hop bitterness. Very woody, earthy hop. Bold bitterness. Light bodied.

pchiodo (27) - Barrie, CANADA - SEP 3, 2010
Bottle 6pk Had it Destin Florida - simple aroma, for an IPA, chill haze. Not sure if intended. Decent bitterness but lacking in malt character. Unimpressed.

bhensonb (10803) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours amber with a decent whit head. Aroma is nicely floral/citrus. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Could be a touch of diacetyl in the flavor. Otherwise nice floral/citrus hop over a slightly roasted malt. Finishes a bit buttery, but definitely bitter.
