COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With 78 IBUs. Our version of a West Coast IPA- brewed in the San Diego style. This massively hoppy beer gets its flavor and attitude from no less than five hop varieties including Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Summit.

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2008
22 oz bottle. Orange-brown pour. Aroma is a mix of citrus, pine, and bitter hops. Simcoe and cascade are apparent. Taste is surprisingly lacking in citrus, and is entirely a bitter mouthfeel. There’s a brief moment right at the end where there’s a strange absence of taste, before a very bitter aftertaste.

Unclear golden of color with a white head. An aroma of hops and grapefruit. A flavor of malt, grapefruit and notes of sweet malt.

kramer (5735) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2008
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a one finger fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. Nice intricate lacing. The nose is well balanced between great piney and citrusy hops and a toasted, lightly caramel malt profile. Hugely bitter and piney flavor slaps you awake with the first sip. The hops almost cross over into becoming ashy and menthol like, but stop short of being unpleasant. The malt really takes a back seat here, overall a fairly dry and crisp flavor. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. Very much on the dry side with some bitter long lingering hops. Overall, this was pretty good, but I think went a bit overboard with the bitterness to garner anything higher than a "good" score.

k4df4l (154) - DTown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Bottle - Pours a hazy light amber with an ample rocky off white head. Aroma is apricots, doughy and yeasty with a toasted/caramel malt background. Flavor is sweet and hoppy up front with a light bitterness. Has a moderately hoppy middle with a grassy dry finish. Hop15 was more satisfying from a complexity and hop pov.

Beer5000 (5721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2008
22 oz bottle. Slightly hazy golden orange body with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus, hay, spruce, grapefruit and malt. Flavor is medium malty and really bitter in a nice, harmonic way. Lots of flavors from the hops as in the aroma. A very nice American IPA.

AbeerWolf (27) - USA - JAN 30, 2008
Nice hoppy nose with a crisp finish. Not much complexity but satisfying. A good amount of malt flavor that is overpowered by the hops. Not as balanced as some IPA’s but worth a shot.

yngwie (16314) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2008
Bottle, 22oz. (yet another beauty from the_epeeist). Pours a hazy, orange-golden body, with a medium sized, off-white head. Hop-dominated aroma with pine, resin and citrusy fruityness, but there’s also room for a generous amount of malty flavors like beef-stock and sugar. Lots of bitterness in the flavor, piney and resiny, and sure malty too. Medium to full body, quite effervescent for an IPA. Quite a good dash of sweetness balances the bitterness in a nice way, leaving a pleasant finish. Sure a drinkable and pleasant IPA, dangerously hiding the alcohol, and begging you to have more.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 25, 2008
22oz bottle: Burnt amber core, orange highlights and a thick, whipped head on top. A nice blend of apricot, tangerine, orange and grapefruit meet the nose. The body is quite chewy for an IPA, with a healthy dose of buttery caramel balancing the mild bitterness. Fruity hops again take the reigns as the beer finishes rindy and grassy. A very solid example of the style.
