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.

Tap... Poured clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma was a little tart and off, like hops and feet. Refreshing, well-carbonated palate. Flavors were nice with floral hops and cracker-grains for balance. Finished with esters and grains.

hombrepalo (1852) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2009
3oz sample pour @ Roger park liquors. Ice cold treat. Pured an amber with a medium head. Aroma of light hoppy, not as freash hops. Could have been fruitier and fresher, but missed on the flavors. Finish was weak, not much going on, aftertaste is disappointing. Would pass.

hopscotch (9490) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle… Clear golden ale with a large, billowing, white head. Great retention. Herbal spicy aroma – a bit odd, actually. Medium to full-bodied with moderate carbonation. The flavor delivers a kiss of caramel and then medium to heavy bitterness kicks in. Lengthy, bitter, dry finish.

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 21, 2009
not too bad, i wasnt sure of what to expect, had this one on draft @ gaslamp grill. somehow, im not sure, you can tell that its organic, like its missing a certain ingrediant that normal beers have, good IPA though.

12oz bottle. This is one of the better organics I have had. Fairly decent example of the style. Quite drinkable.

Great hazy copper coloured body with a honey glow, a thick dense tan head and a trillion bubbles rising from the sides and bottom of the glass - definitely a good looking beer! Aroma of dried apricots, somewhat fresh (low a.a.) hops, caster sugar, nice malt and a bunch more apricot smells. Medium-bodied; Sharp hoppy and metallic flavour at first with a large bitter finish more funky and floral than expected, but not horrible. Some malt shows up in the aftertaste, but basically a bitter hoppy, sweet apricot and funky metallic flavour dominates the finish. Overall, a decent IPA, perhaps a bit too herbal/floral and bitter without enough hop complexity. Okay to try, not a great IPA, but that was expected before I bought the beer - about par for the brewery. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits in Washington, DC on 15-February-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 15-April-2010.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Deep amber pour with a lively 1.5 ginger off white head. The aroma holds lots of caramel and toffee biscuit with some evergreen forest and citrus notes. A resinous flavor leads to a pronounced bready malt profile that finishes sappy. Palate is a bit thin with low effervescence.

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.

Pours a two finger off-white head that fades slowly to a ring leaving a good lace. Hazy red/amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Light piney hop nose. Flavor is mostly piney hops but some caramel shows up. Bitter finish. $1.80 for a 12oz bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.
