Light amber with nice fluffy white head. Nice pine citrus nose. Nice hop bite with subtle malt balance. This is a nice IPA with a relatively creamy mouthfeel. Not sure if this is the Starr Hill IPA I had but it’s the only one on the list that was an IPA.

pineypower (3050) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Pours a slightly cloudy copper color with good carbonation and a tiny off white head. Aroma is of light citrus and floral hops and some slightly sweet caramel malt notes. Taste is floral hops, some citrus, caramel and a little bit of a grainy note in the background, light bitterness on the finish. Well balanced IPA and rather solid, despite the fact I usually like a little more of a hop punch.

Bestowed on me by the Swanson-Collie family on their Quest to Attend the BSA National Jamboree! Friends of Scouting visit ken at http://www.boyscoutmuseum.com/aboutus.shtml A good aroma started the tasting of thisdark orange brew. Nice and floral aroma. Great carbonation. Head was thick and creamy, clinging to the side of the glass and lasting throughout the beer. Great hop taste, citrusy and floral. Really good mouthfeel. Nice bittering on the back side and aftertaste left me wanting more. I like this beer and thank my friends for thinking of me!

sixer from norms in vienna... pours a darker amber than most of the cali IPAs Im used to. familiar hop infused scent. Taste is healthy notes of citrus and caramel malts. less potency than the western hop bombs, but not a bad brew...
