Shared by bgburdman and Bruno the Terrible Essay Writer at C-bus tasting #4. Great caramel aroma with citrus hops behind it. Really cool looking orange color with a light head. Very full palate for an IPA. Great malt backbone supports the bitter hops that you get throughout. Very bitter in the finish. Really solid IPA. Thanks for sharing fellas!

Body is an amber color, with a hint of brown, head is thing and off white. Aroma is very hoppy, sticky, with an alochol sweetness, and a bit of caramel. Taste is pretty hoppy, with a candy sweetness, chewy mouthfeel that is also smooth. Good IPA.

Much thanks to hopdop for sharing this bomber. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a large foamy off white head that laced and sustained. Aroma of citrus (lots of orange), floral, perfume along with a great caramel malt balance. Flavor was up front hop bitterness followed by some nice sweet caramel malt to balance along with some grapefruit. Enjoyed the aroma slightly more than the flavor...great IPA overall.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2006
22oz bottle acquired in trade with FlactoAlto (thanks!). Poured a deep orange / amber color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, floral, citrus (juicy oranges), and pineapples. Tastes of caramel, citrus, pineapples and grapefruit. Starts out sugary sweet and ends in a nice bitterness. Nicely balanced.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2007 (Bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, and passion fruit. Flavor of caramel malt and hops with a dry, bitter finish.

auerbrau (3126) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 26, 2006
Nice sweet candied balsma orange aroma, with an edge of piney, light esters. Sieena pour with light haze, covered with a rim of whitish. Flavor is a subdued orange presentation, but a nice crisp flavor. A long lasting sweetness, noted with nice light piney concentration. Clean, well-built and deliciously refreshing, however, not particularly exceptional.

IrishBoy (3754) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Bottle; Nose was hoppy with a citrus note, amber with a small beige head; flavor hoppy becoming more bitter as it warmed, witha small amount of caramel, and a hop finish.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2007 Pours an amberish golden with decent off-white head. The aroma is pleasant; extremely aromatic lemony, grassy hops (lemon sherbert). The flavor is straight up hops. I enjoy a bitter beer, but this one has a piercing aftertaste. Resiny, piney, with only a hint of lemony sweetness. Decent creamy mouthfeel. The aftertaste kills this IPA. When you have five different types of hops in a beer you also have to put an abundance of quality malts to even out the levels of flavors. Decent, but not too drinkable. (I’m gonna have to re-visit this one. This rating was prior to my hop madness).

Shared at Columbus Tasting 4.0 by bgburdman9 and company - Thanks guys! - Pours amber with a short offwhite head. Aromas big of grapefruit and pine.. Smells like pure hop nector... with a hint of pineapple behind it. Flavor is grapefruit, pine, pineapple, and behind it all faint caramel malts. Bitter throughout medium body and light carbonation. Pretty nice brew..
