COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our favorite styles, this ale is a hop explosion. Light in color, heavily hopped in the kettle as well as conditioned with several unique hop varieties. This creates a beautiful floral/citrusy nose which is balanced well by a smooth and full finish.

I was not a fan at all. As far as I can tell, the bottle was fresh. Despite this, the beer seemed to taste off--as if I had a pint from a tap line that wasnít properly maintained. Fortunately, it was light bodied for an IPA, so it went down pretty quickly. I would probably retry this one, as the flavor makes it seem like I just got a bad bottle, but it was so light Iím not sure that it would make any difference.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with no head. Aroma is definitely lacking. Taste is stale hops. Not impressed.

northropfrye (2247) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 27, 2012
Nice foamy head, golden yellow/orange colour, a bit hazy. Aroma of lemons, and a bit of sweet fruit. Taste is nicely bitter, grapefruit, a lingering bitterness at the back of the mouth. Average mouthfeel, maybe a bit soft. Not bad.

GuinnessHong (147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Light, clear golden color, with minimal head. Hoppy, citrus aromas & flavors. Crisp & refreshing. Bitter aftertaste & linger.

12oz bottle with no date on the bottle, so Iím not sure how old this is. Picked it up on a recent trip to the ísconsin. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear pale orange with a moderately thick white head on top. Big citrusy nose that is inviting me to partake. Orange, lemon, floral tones - nice refreshing nose. The mouth is crisp, yet creamy. A little sharp, but smooth on the back end. Nice big citrus flavors greet me with sweet tangerine, orange rind, lemon zest. Bitterness is moderate and accessible. This is a great IPA for novices and geeks alike. I wasnít expecting a lot, but this surprised me. I would grab this again for sure.
