COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For our hopping regime we went with Cascade and Nuggets in the boiling addition. Centennials were added every 5 minutes for the last 30 minutes of the boil. We added Crystals into the whirlpool. Dry hopping was done in both the fermentor after primary fermentation and the bright tank. We used a mixture of Chinook, Nuggets, and Sterlings in the fermentors and whole leaf Centennials in the bright tank.

Courtesy of Pailhead. Pours orange with film for head. Huge sticky pine hop aroma, with lots of sweet malt/residuel sugar. Initial flavor very sweet caramel, turns to big hop bite through the middle and lasts long into the aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2005 The aroma is strongly piney, with a fading head. The flavor is bitter upfront- wholly hoppy with a nice balance- not too sweet, but somewhat and thick on the tounge.

It pours a clear honey orange color. Pleasant hop and citrus tones, but not overpowering. Strongly bitter with a near grapefruit aftertaste. For IPA fans only.

Pumpkin orange. Wisp of head, but attractively rocky and sticky. Balanced nose of pine straw, peach skin, and sugared orange rind. Fairly herbal and sherbety. Soft, condensed carbonation. Full bodied. Slick but oh so tightly piney with a beautifully understated notion of bitter grapefruit rind. Gentle jellied malt character, but quite subdued at a colder temp. Rather than lending balance, a cool breath of alcohol somehow intensifies the tongue-clinging sappiness, which blankets the brighter hop elements. Delicious secondary notes of toast and straw develop as it warms. Sweetness soon takes foothold, as dried pineapples stymie the polished peach notes. Finishes orange rind bitter alongside a dryly herbaceous peach skin backing. Refined, but surprisingly modest, nose for the style, but the mouthfeel is luxuriantly soft with remarkable density, to boot. And while the malt shines at a warmer temp., this really should be savored at a near-cold temp. in order capture the resounding brightness of the hops. A few minor adjustments and this’ll really be something.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Poured a mostly clear orange color with a medium white head. Aroma of citrus and grassy hops with sweet malt. Flavor of caramel and biscut/bread with citrus hop flavor running through from middle to the bitter finish. Alcohol warms but flavor is hidden.

22 oz bottle: poured light orange with very little head. No ffttt when opening the bottle. I thought I was doomed. But, turns out it was carbonated. Big hop aroma. Light pine, pineapple, citrus. Flavor is sweet on first sip with a bitter hop finish. Flavor of pineapple, grass. Sweet malt. Very nice.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Pours amber with a strawlike bubbley head. Smells grassy with elements of citrus, yogurt, bananas, roses and caramel. Tastes of pepper, nuts and rose hips. Bitter alcohol finish.

Talk about lacing... Big IPA tapped at the Extreme Beer Festival. Offered a pleasant hoppy, grassy, citrusy aroma. Poured a deep copper-orange with lacing that was out of this world... you couldn’t even see the glass, it was just pure foam all the way down. Awesome. Palate was a little watery but taste was well balanced malt at the front, pitching a strong, bitter hop later on with grapefruit, grass, pine.
