This is an excellent ipa. Perfect hops. Floral grapefruit. Not too harsh. Very smooth for a high ipa.

Hazy medium gold/orange,nice inch of head,retaining great lacing and a short froth on top. Aroma appears to have some herbal,slight fruit and some malt/carmel. This was room temp six-mixer bought so I have no idea the storage/age on this. It seems to be Ok but not real fresh. Foamy mouthfeel,medium/medium-full bodied.Im getting some light herbal but alot of grapefruit which Im not familiar with Columbus hops doing the grapefruit thing.There is some pretty sweet carmel/vanilla maltiness,and a pretty generous hop profile/bittering.Piney/Rindy/Grassy lingering bittering finish. Yeah, this is an ipa for shure.

Good IPA, fairly bitter, hoppy, overall pretty decent, and a pretty rare bill

penstemon (107) - - OCT 5, 2012
Pours deep amber with a white head and some yeast sediment. Aromas of malt and cereal, floral. Taste is oranges, spice, malt, a hint of pineapple, and hop bitterness, with a slight sour note. Mouth-coating bitterness. Lacking some depth and balance.

From bottle at Hops in New West. A nice amber in color, perhaps a bit on the darker side. Bitter hops assault the nose and tongue, but hearty malts rush in to save the day! Yay! 3.7.

Pyramid Thunderhead IPA is a hazy, sparkling, deep golden ale with a smooth, dense, off white head that has excellent retention and lacing. It has a pine resin aroma with a touch of citrus peel. It has a very smooth and soft medium body with a dry finish that leaves the mouth a little gritty. The flavor is simple and well balanced with a smooth biscuity malt and a healthy piny bitterness. It has a long, bitter grapefruit peel finish. This is a nice, drinkable West Coast IPA that’s nice and bitter, but not super strong.

BroSpud (1596) - , Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a light amber with a quickly receding head. Big hop aroma and bitterness but not much flavor to this one. It is not bad tasting just a bit on the bland side.

hivemind (693) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2012
6-pack with Erica in Wildwood/Cape May. Pours a light whiskey color with minimal, light-colored lacing that quickly fades. Aroma and palate are both heavily floral and a touch earthy/caramel. Not that bitter. Sweet, malty finish. Better than I was expecting.

bottle. amber with small head. hoppy bitterness, but not much flavor, and what’s there is slightly off. very underwhelming.
