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 (2194) - 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.

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.

fiveacestx (564) - Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle - has a hazy yellow appearance. The overload of carbonation seems to be causing this. It has a thick head to it with some lacing. This one is definitely different than other IPAs. It seems more like lager with a hopped up taste to it. The body is light to medium and the palate is lacking.

Travlr (10000) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Draft. Clear golden yellow color, thick white head, delicate lacing. Aroma of pine and pineapple. Taste has pine and tropical fruit in a bit of an odd combo that grows on you.

after4ever (6103) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 11, 2012
12-oz. Thanks, B! Pours a murky burnished medium amber with a dense and creamy whitish head that hangs around for a while, leaving lots of eggy lace. Mild grapefruit and caramel nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb, and the requisite toast, caramel, and grapefruit. Pretty run of the mill IPA, despite having no major flaws.

bookman10 (630) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Pours a hazy, golden yellow. Some floral and hop aromas. Flavor is full of hop bitterness, with not much else to balance. Not the greatest IPA.

Hazy golden pour from bottle with head that leaves decent lacing. Citrus hop aroma. Sweet, bready, and a grassiness all coming out. Not as bitter as I expected, but I am ok with that. Citrus/Pine connotations. Overall another great offering from Rush River!
