COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This classic India Pale Ale is wonderfully hopped for a strong start, a smooth finish, and a fine amber color.

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 (7423) - 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.

Has wonderful citrus fruit notes, light golden color. Taste is very bitter and on the dry side. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (2168) - 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.

BeerInHeaven (250) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Aroma is subtle floral with malt and hops. Pours a cloudy deep gold with a frothy lacing head. Taste is strong hops. Long strong bright and bitter hoppy finish with a lot of linger. Great beer, but I don’t think I could session it :-)

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - FEB 12, 2012
12oz bottle. Rating #179. Hazy golden orange pour with a small white head. Big pine and grapefruit aroma, slightly oxidized. Mild flavor, fruity and a little old. Ok stuff. (2172)

S_Side_Smitty (578) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Pours a beautiful gold-orange with a small white head. Aroma is grapefruit & tangerine. Taste is grapefruit, but with a lot of pine bitterness that lingers in the finish.

wlajwl (4541) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Hops and a lot of yeast in the aroma. The flavor is hoppy up front, followed by a metallic edge. Not really bad but could be better without the metallic edge.
