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.

Purs a lovely clear amber with a thick off-white head that sticks around a bit. Aroma is richly hoppy to the point of being like evergreen. Flavor is very hoppy and not too bitter with a yeasty tone and a touch of citrus. Texture is lively, edgy and fizzy, a delight to drink.

ChainGangGuy (4559) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Appearance: Pours out a hazed, orange-amber body with a finger high layer of off-white foam. Smell: Sweet caramel-scented malts in the nose with a touch of buttery diacetyl and notes of candied grapefruit rind, flowers, and spruce tips. Taste: Pale and caramel malts, faintly toasty and with a modest amount of sweetness. The hops are predominately fruity and citrusy, but also yield some floral tones and zesty spruce hints. Moderate bitterness, though there’s enough maltiness to keep things fairly balanced. Slight buttery tones from the diacetyl within. Drying, bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. Drinkability: Even with the diacetyl, I still thought it was a fairly pleasant India Pale Ale. Now, to finally try that Espresso Amber.

Drake (10701) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods, Fairfax, VA. Pours a hazy amber color with a large frothy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of floral and citrus hops with caramel. The taste is bitter floral, minty and leafy hops with caramel and a bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good IPA.

PhatB420 (733) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2011
12oz bottle into a crystal pint glass. Frothy head the builds and sticks around, this is a great brew. Easy sipper with plenty of hop back bone. The hops are quite fresh, hence the organic label. Tastes like they have just been picked. Color is slight red, slight bronze, and plenty orange. Taste is soapy, fresh, fullfilling, and citrus. Dried pine sneaks in there too. A quality brew here.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 10, 2011
THOUGHTS: This had some of my favorite hops. While it wasn’t overwhelmingly original at first it was rather complex. Very nice for an organic beer. It was almost mouth-numbingly hoppy. There was an ever so slight Belgian quality to the yeast. I did not expect to like this, but it was very nice. TECHNICAL: The label on my bottle clearly stated 7.1not 7.2 % ABV. Poured a cloudy, dark, slightly brownish, orange with a large, off-white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma had light to moderate caramel malts; moderate to heavy pine grapefruit, orange, apricot and earthy hops; a hint of minty hops; and light to moderate yeast. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and moderate to rather bitter; while the finish was slightly sweet and heavily bitter with an average to long duration. There was caramel, orange hops, grapefruit hops, a little pine hops earthy hops, yeast, pineapple and floral hops. The light to medium body was slightly watery yest also a bit syrupy with fairly fizzy carbonation and a slightly astringent, slightly alcoholic and dry finish.

Edmoe (241) - 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.

nearbeer (4236) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - 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.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 21, 2011
On tap at the Matunuck Oyster Bar - Matunuck, RI. Dank, rich, lemony aroma that nicely highlights the Amarillo and Simcoe in a way that I enjoy. Flavors are solid too, although I think the coarse Nugget bitterness comes on a little strong. This is very drinkable and surprised me. The hoppiness was at a flavor level that I would seek out and it wasn’t too sweet nor too flawed.

TheHopster (937) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2012
(bottle). Four Point Sheraton. Nice copper complexion with mild hop aroma. Flavors are straightforward traditional mild IPA flavor. Clean and easy to session. Elevated alcohol very well hidden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
