Aroma is floral with a slight amount of fruitiness. Taste is pure floral hops beginning to end, with a piney aftertaste. Great body and mouthfeel. Yumm. Good but not complex enough to obtain better scores.

Standard ipa. From a bottle, it seems to be fresh and the hop flavor is good, with a dry, herbal quality. Light sweetness.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Pours gold crowned by a small white head with some suspended particles evident in the beer. Nose is hoppy. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy. Taste is all hops, but not overly bitter. Hopheads will love this one. Pairs well with crackers and cheese.

Ibrew2or3 (6890) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2012
12oz bottle pours murky copper – brown with tall near rocky tan head. The aroma is a little dusty and cedar spicy like and then some horribly muted pine notes are noticed near the end of the draw. The taste begins with spicy wood notes mixing with grassy resiny pine hop bitterness. Behind the bitter hops are thin rings of malts and blunted pine hop flavor. This IPA is nicely on the bitter side of the hop spectrum.

Very cloudy with lots of floaters. Hops and citrus aroma with slight malt. Clean bitter taste. Malt aftertaste with hints of fruit. Dry crisp citrus finish.

fidelis83 (1953) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 3, 2012
Pours hazy light amber with a finger creamy, chunky beige head that has great retention and leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, toast, cereal, floral hops, honey, citrus, toffee, overripe tree fruit, and a hint of planty hops. Flavor is caramel, toffee, toast, planty, citrus, piney and earthy hops, cereal grain, berry and tree fruit. Palate is medium bodied, creamy on entry, moderately carbonated, creamy, syrupy and lightly dry, chalky to the finish. Pretty good, the hop notes are a little more to the earthy, planty side than I typically like, but it has a more substantial feel and flavor profile than typically found in IPA’s at this ABV% level. Could be good or bad on that note, but right now I’d call it good. Looks very nice too.
