22oz. pours golden with fluffy white head. aroma is mild floral hops with an earthy edge. mouthful is very earthy and bitter. there is no citrus zest to spruce up the blunt hoppy pallet.

while this beer may have all the aspect to what makes a IPA this beer has too many flaws not to ignore, the malts and look are decent but the hop flavor is too soapy and astringent at the end. not quite to the standards.

The aroma is very hoppy with citrus, pine, soap, and caramel malt. The appearance is cloudy amber gold with a huge head. The flavor is very bitter and soapy with one of the most astringent aftertastes I have had. The palate is average for the style. Overall this is really disappointing from this brewer.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a moderate, fluffy, yellow-white head that held up very well all the way to the end and left very little lace at the beginning, but much more as it reached mid-glass on down to the bottom. Pleasant aroma of malt and grapefruit. The flavor is malt up front, however, this is quickly washed over by grapefruit pith. There is just a bit of grassiness to the hops as well that is lurking in the background. Medium bitterness at the finish.

cloudy golden pour, healthy white head. grapefruit hop aroma. bitter zest and hop, not overly hoppy but some nice grass notes and bitterness at the finish. Interesting flavors, but nothing extraordinary.

Poured very cloudy with an aroma of hops. Very nice taste, lacking bitterness with a good hop finish. Interesting IPA and one that i will need to try again.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2009 i guess its interesting, looked and smelled good. first sip was wild. tastes kinda salty and norcally. not as hoppy as expected, not really bitter at all totally different hop flavor coming from those amarillos, didn’t like it the first few i had but the last one i had i loved, almost tangerine like form those amarillo hops

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Poured from a 22oz bomber and served in a shaker. This IPA poured a hazy golden amber with a thick, creamy beige head that lasted forever. Heavy lacing coated the glass. The aroma included mild grapefruit, lemon, grass, and a bit of biscuity malt. The flavor was mildly grassy, with notes of citrus and light caramel. Very mild for the style. A moderate bitterness lingers for a few seconds. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and had moderate carbonation. Pretty tame for an IPA, but it is easy-drinking and has decent flavor.

Juelze (1137) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Pours a cloudy yellowish color with medium offwhite head. Aroma is light floral hops and lemon. Taste is light lemon, floral hops and toasted malt. Light bitterness in the finish but finishes clean in the swallow. Meh.
