COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the great West Coast IPAs, we have created a well balanced beer to satisfy all. Born of Amarillo and Centennial hops, this baby is well over 1 pound of hops per barrel while it’s still in the kettle and we dry hop with yet another pound per barrel once fermentation is complete. To balance the substantial hopping we provide plenty of malt backbone. The result is a complex interaction of bitterness, fruity fermentation esters and citrusy hop character.

Thanks Bobo! Poured an apricot color, with a small and delicate head. Aroma is intoxicatingly fresh, with a pronounced citrusy aroma leading the charge. I do get a slack back note of fresh cilantro and slight toasted component. Flavor is full and hoppy, with a warming finish. Very nice.

16 ounce pint on tap at the brewpub. Aroma is of hemp and piney hops. Some metallic notes are present, too. I also detect some dish soap, which is unfortunate. Transparent orangey-copper color with a small yellow-tan head. This could definitely be darker in color. Sweet, almost sugary malty start. Becomes quite juicy in the middle. It then suddenly takes a sharp, bitter, dry grapefruity turn. Quite dry and bitter. The mellow, sweet start lulls you into a false sense of security before the rediculously dry and bitter hoppiness blindsides you. I don’t care for this trait.

Lightly hazy orange-yellow. Moderate coarse head. Surprisingly light hops aroma with orange and piney notes. Hops do, however, come through sharply in the flavor with fat, juicy piney and citric notes and a light cheesiness/staleness. Excellent finish, smooth and creamy with moderate bitterness.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2007
Sampled from a bottle in Nov. 2006: Pours a slightly hazy golden bronze with a thin covering of wispy white head. Has a fresh piny hoppy aroma with semi-sweet caramel malty notes. Body starts with pale malty sweetness, some citric orange fruity notes and balance of flavoring hops. A nice IPA.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 12, 2007
(Growler) Courtesy of aspidites. Clear, amber golden with a dense, off-white head leaving laces. Discreet, citrusy aroma. Medium body, a bit low in carbonation, with a discreet malt sweetness. Dry and fairly hoppy finish. This needs a bit of sophistication to be truly great. 290307

Poured a hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma is of citrus hops with some malts in the background. Flavor was somewhat malty with a nice bitter citrus hop finish.

Bottle thanks to stoutlover. Aroma of citrus and some peachiness. Poured with a golden color and a thin white head. Had a pretty nice bitterness to it with some hops. Pretty good for an IPA.
