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.

Bottle shared by bgburdman at C-Bus 6: Golden orange in color with a white head. Aroma, citrus, and caramel, some grapefruit. Flavor, bready and caramel, some grapefruit, and earthy hop notes. A medium bitterness to it, nothing really eye-popping. Solid brew though.

Bottle shared by bgburdman at C-bus 6. Hoppy-earthy aroma with some citrus. Light golden in color with a decent head. The palate is soft and medium bodied. Very heavy earthy hop flavor, but overall the taste is weak.

I loved that this ’IPA’ was less hoppy than some pale ales. Despite my love for hops, the taset was very well balanced. You know it’s an IPA, but the hops are so integrated with the malts that the citrusy hops and sweet malts blend well during the initial taste, followed by a more bitter yet still pleasant finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2006
Poured a hazy orange color with a thin off-white head. Hop foward aroma with notes of citrus and orange. Sweet malty notes underneath. Orange and caramel malt make up most of the flavor. Nice hoppy middle with a fair amount of bitterness in the finish.

On tap @ Hopyard poured a clear gold with a small diminishing ivory head. Aromas of carmel, citrus and light pine. Palate was light bodied and dry. Flavors of sweet carmel, orange and a hint of lemon with a crisp bitter finish.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2006 Had this on tap from the brewery, so it was nice and fresh. Somewhat dark in color and it has the huge Amarillo hoppiness aroma to it that is very nice. Big pine notes with sweet caramel malt backing balances it out nicely. I really enjoyed this.
