COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It just wasn’t enough to use a blend of 5 varieties of hops in our India Pale Ale. We needed more. We needed to go wholehog! So, we added a sixth hop and created a more pronounced hop nose and a massive hop flavor for our American twist to this legendary style.

Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a near white head head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has some light grassy hops with sweet grains snd a strong hay note. Flavor is similar with a light grassy hop note that is dominated by sweet grains and hay.

Bottle poured a dark golden color with a thin covering of white head. Aroma has malts, mild hops, and some sweet fruit. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor has dull hops, medium bitterness, caramel, malts, and a spicy herb thing.

Not a big fan go IPAs but this one was pretty good. Nice mixture of the hops with nothing over powering. Nice surprise.

multiple 12oz pours (for research purposes), Not your typical IPA; probably a little sweeter than I was anticipating, but it doesn’t detract from its deliciousness! Has a "red" ale aroma that I love; its appearance is shite; taste and body are above average. This is good stuff.

Lowe1983 (1346) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is mostly floral hops with some caramel malts and a hint of alcohol. Sweet up front with the caramel malts. Floral hops come out on the end of this brew with some slight alcohol warming.

MrBeerFanatic (848) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2012
medium amber with a light carbed head. Aromas of pine, citrus hops, light apricot, light caramel. Flavors of pinecitrus hops, apricot towards the back end flavors, slight caramel but overpowered with hops. No alcohol noticed. Resin like on the palate. Bitter end. Good. Period.

Lubiere (9865) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2012
A murky hazed dark amber IPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, a nice earthy biscuitty malt with resinous floral hops, with some catnip notes and light spruce notes. In mouth, a smooth herbaceous biscuit malt, with grassy and floral hops, attenuated with age, but still very solid. Bottle more than a year old.
