COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not quite an imperial, but certainly not a standard India pale ale. Our double IPA is a hop lovers dream. Citrusy and clean with an incredible finish.

draft into a tulip @ Capones. Poured a golden amber with a one-finger white head which settle to a coating but staying around until I finished this. Lacing was lighter but present throughout as well. Nose was piney hops and citrus. Tasting revealed a well-balanced IPA - citrus (grapefruit, mango) predominated at the start, some sweetness of the malt in the middle, returning to citrus and a touch of dryness in the finish. This was not overly cloying nor sticky. Mouthfeel was light to medium but with healthy carbonation. At a little over 8%, I could do a few of these with no problem this summer.

20010-06-18. Crisp orange body with a modest off white head. 3+ Richly hoppy aroma, citrus, resiny green notes. 8+ Flavour is pleasantly bitter throughout, modest citrus, light resin and alcohol. Muddled citrus lingers. Little or no hint of the alcohol content. Smooth average to medium bodied palate. This benefited from catching me at the right time I suspect, but I really enjoyed this.

(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy gold pour with almost no head. Very thin layer of white at the top. Mild nose with some nice spicy and flowery hops as well as some very light hints of grapefruit and orange zest. Citrus tastes are very prevalent at the start and move to a lightly sweet and almost astringent alcohol taste. The hops come through more at the finish with a light citrusy hint. Surprisingly clean finish with a lightly hoppy aftertaste. Not sure what the flavor in the middle was, but it was slightly off-putting to me.

shadey (1904) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 20, 2010
12oz bottle from BOTW. Pours a bight melon orange with a thin head of white cream. Aroma is all citrus hops - bright and potent. Flavors are all about the hops as well. Resiny, bright and chewy - but the finish almost tastes creamy? Fairly smooth for the amount of bitterness. Good stuff.

Clear golden pour light white head ...... aroma of some sweet malt but a mix of soapy, piney and citrusy hops ..... taste of some sweet malt and citrusy hop a bit piney and floral as well with a bitter dry hop finish that lingers .... medium bodied ... a great hoppy IPA sessionable and no trace of abv

Pours a crystal clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma isn’t anything crazy or overpowering, but what is there is very nice and subtle with a bit of fruit and piney hop flavor - pretty much what you’d expect. Flavor is quite bitter all the way through but with notes of fruit coming through just a tad. Overall though the main flavor is driven by the hops, which, depending on your taste could be a good or bad thing. I prefer DIPAs where the fruity flavors shine a bit more but for what this is its pretty good, and very drinkable. The bitterness is not overpowering by any means, and my palate doesn’t seem to be getting too blown out by it. Feels light and lively as you drink due to a higher than average amount of carbonation. A solid beer and something I’ll drink again, but there are several others in the style that I prefer. Serving type: bottle

fidelis83 (1975) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Pours a nearly clear honey gold with a 1 finger slightly chunky, white head. Aroma is citrus, light pine, cat box (piss) and pot, planty wildflower, hints of caramel and biscuit, and just a little old straw. Flavor is planty pot, citrus, blood orange rind, floral hops, cat piss, prarie flower and dry grain. Palate is medium bodied, slightly slick syrupy and a little dry with a medium-sharp carbonation. Good but not overly impressive; sweet, pot and cat box heavy IIPA.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUN 17, 2010
12oz bottle from Gmcc2181, thanks G. Rating #47. Yellowish gold color with a thin white head and some light lacing. Big citrus aroma, grapefruit is the first thing that comes to mind. Light flavor up front, very smooth and drinkable with some mild bitterness and a clean crisp finish. Very nice drinker and real tasty. (1262)

12 oz bottle. Clear orange with a white head. Nose is pine, orange and cat pee. Crisp medium light with lively carb. Taste is lemon zest with herbal spice. A touch of orange peel and caramel lead to a clean dry finish. Surprising restraint by Southern Tier. I could drink a few of these.
