A perfect IPA in my opinion 5+++ all the way. Exccellent use of differnet hops along with some new ones that add complexity, great use of the ABV and great use of malts. PERFECTION

A good IPA sure pours nice into a glass. Great color and frothy head. I love the aroma of a good IPA and this one is very good. Now, the strong, hoppy flavor I’m still learning to love, but I enjoyed this brew a lot.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear honey color with a medium eggshell head that is mostly lasting. The aroma is pretty much all hops: citrus and floral. The flavor is an explosion of hoppy bitterness. The citrus and floral are present as in the aroma, along with some pine in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full. This is an excellent IPA, too bad it is not sold locally.

22 oz bottle (thanks bmartinl!). Pours a hazy amber with a small head. Nose is citrus, floral, and fruity. Tastes like it smells with some pineapple and lots of resiny pine in the finish. Body is full, carbonation is average. Mmmm this is one tasty IPA, the best I have had in a long long time.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 Pours a golden copper color with a prominent white head. Aroma is a mixture of hoppy and flowery notes, with a bit of citrus as well. Taste is dominated by hops, but the flowery notes and citrus characteristics come in at the end to create a very balanced, nice IPA.

Bomber. Big thanks to ( bu11zeye ) for trading this to me. Pours a medium copper with a small frothy head. Aroma is sweetend malts and hops, Fruity Pebbles, funky pine. Flavor is quite sweet. Sugary malts, bitter hops, and pine. The finish is bitter and sort of dry.

Bottle from saarlander via mystery swap 2.0. This one pours a sort of dirty golden color with a decent white head. Smell is a bit soft, floral and earthy. Mouthfeel is a little sticky, with a slight caramel flavor and earthy notes.The aftertaste is just a bit on the piney side. This is a decent.

22oz bottle purchased from Bauer Wines in Boston for $5.99. Pouring into a 5oz glass results in a light clear gold with a bit of carbonation and head. Pours from the bottom of the bottle are completely different. It turns into a cloudy brown with lots of interesting floaty bits. It is recommended to pour this one all at once, or at least to swirl it well. Nice medium aroma of floral hops that I wish was a bit stronger. Taste is nicely rounded and hoppy - hoppy of the variety that I tend to like, not being overly grapefruity. This one is quite enjoyable, though not particularly a great value at the same price of some of the DIPA gargantuans.

Tangerine, grapefruit citrus hops with doughy underlying malts. Hazy copper coloured body is topped by a low off white head that recedes to cover with scant sudsy lace. Citrus hops dominate the toasty and biscuity malts with aggressive and lasting bitterness. Dry medium body with low to fair carbonation. Bottle sampled with BeerPrince, CapFlu and Oakes.
