TASTING NOTES: A non-traditional India Pale Ale with big citrusy, hop flavor and intense hop aroma. Medium-bodied with a vibrant lingering hop-bitterness that is anything but brutal. Enjoy!

Pours cloudy amber with an off-white head. Aroma is really malty with a bit of fruit. Malts up front but bitter hops kick in. Just the right touch of bitterness. Nice beer

American aroma and British flavor? Perhaps that’s a bit too simplistic a deScription, but it seems to sum up this beer. Very citrusy aroma (orange peel) and truly bitter in flavor as the name suggests. Nice long finish (again bitter) which I love.

22 oz bottle pours a cloudy golden orange with a huge foamy off white head that leaves a sticky lacing in my glass. A good dose of citrus in the aroma, fruity grapefruit, pear, pineapple and caramel flavors, medium to full bodied with a soft and creamy mouthfeel, finishes with a lingering bitterness.

all these style lines...difference between an ipa and an esb american style? who knows. a hoppy (not as brutal as the name suggests) pale, ale. definitely above average, enjoyed it on cask at sharp edge, just don’t pay top dollar for it.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2006 From a 12 oz bottle. Hazy orange coloured beer, thick creamy head with great persistence. Aroma is fairly clean, light orange citrus with a bit of earthy/spicy noble hop character. A hint of lean maltiness. Flavour is spicier than the aroma suggests. A bit of orangey hops. As it warms the spicy hops really come to the fore. Earthy lightly bitter finish. Quite a nice brew, but I think I prefer UK versions. Tap. Cloudy amber colour, thin head. Aroma is lightly oaky, some mushroomy character. Flavour is fairly hoppy, earthy, woody flavour. Light toffeeish notes. Slightly sulfuric notes coming off of this one. Okay, but it doesn’t really do it for me. 6/3/6/3/11

Pours a hazy orange amber color with a thick rocky white head. Excellent aroma and flavor of floral and citrusy hops with caramel, strong, lasting bitter finish. Medium body, creamy texturem lively carbonation. Definitely the best bitter I’ve tasted.

dark amber pour with a small frothy white head. aroma is citrus, hops. taste is somewhat sweet, but mostly just piney/grapefruity hops. kind of a acidic and resiny mouthfeel. Pretty good

Opaque orangeybrown (I went to crayola.com to find the right color, but ironically, their palate is messed up either on the website or on my computer). Aroma is hop/citrus. Flavor is custom-built for my palate, apparently. Hops, lemons, vinegar (in a good way), grapefruit, hint of sweet malt. Clean finish, with lingering Cascades. Nice microlacing on surface, touch on glass. Tay-stee!

UPDATED: APR 13, 2009 Poured from a bottle. Fairly thick head that settles with nice lacing. Pours a beautiful cloudy amber color. I was really impressed with the color on this one. The taste isn’t nearly as brutal as the name implies. Instead it has a nice sweet and citrusy taste to start and a good bitter finish. I really enjoyed this one.
