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.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2008
On tap at Santorini Taverna and Grill in Eden Prairie, MN. Dark amber in color. Indistinct aroma. Taste of light grassy hops and perhaps a hint of malt. Not all that bitter. Somewhat ordinary IPA.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 10, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy gold, white head. Aroma is citrus, grass, ketchup. Flavor is grassy, malty, bitter, not complex and not distinctive. Not awful but definitely not a great IPA.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2008
Draft at capones. Pours a golden body with a small white head. Lots of hoppy aroma and flavors, pine, citrus, resins with a big rusty mouthfeel. not bad.

dchmela (2681) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2008
Courtesy Phillybeer2112. Cloudy light gold pour. Big citrus pine aroma with a nice caramel malt base. Thick chewy hop resiny taste with lots of earth grass and citrus. Has a big bitter bite, very good ipa.

stankenk (130) - Maplewood, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a small off-white head. The nose is very sweet with hops, citrus, and caramel. Comes across the palate very hoppy up front. Not overly bitter, but very sweet. Overall a well balanced IPA similar to "New Belgium’s Mighty Arrow". Very smooth finish.

BeerBunker (725) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a beige head. Super heavy carbonation. Aroma is very sweet with hops, citrus, and caramel. Taste is very hoppy up front. Not overly bitter, but very sweet. Not much substance after the initial hop bite. Light mouthfeel, that goes down smooth. Tasty and easy drinkable, if not underwhelming.

That1Guy (1964) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Crushed with Jakebra. Got this one cask-conditioned at Three Cellars in Milwaukee. Got some hop presence but not much. So thin it’s almost anorexic. The finish is very bitter but has no other hop presence.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Thanks PhillyBeer2112! Copper color with a thin white head and a little lacing. The aroma is of citrus hops and some malt. The malt comes through a little more in the flavor. Some slight toasted flavors with a hop precense that seems lacking against the malts. Not bad, but not great.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Courtesy PhillyBeer2112. Pours a very lightly hazy, golden-orange color with a small, swirly, off-white head. Minimal, spotty lacing noted. The aroma shows a cardboard-like, stale graininess with a strong wheat presence and old, citrus and floral hops. Flavors are similar, sweet caramel malts and dry cereal grains being accompanied by a mildly bitter orange and floral hop presence. Medium bodied, with light to moderate carbonation, there is a dry, biting astringency that lingers on the finish. This one didn’t impress.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
PhillyBeer2112 (2544) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Courtesy theisti. Amber color, light foamy head. Lightly hoppy, bits of citrus and pine. Light palate, very easy drinking. The wheat lightens it up a little. Mild bitter finish with a lingering grapefruit hoppy flavor.
