COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of premium hops and balanced with a premium selection of English malt. Traditionally unfiltered IPA’s lead to the slight haze appearance. An extensive dry-hopping process contributes to its very intense floral hop aroma. The IPA is unfiltered and as always, unpasteurized to leave all the natural flavors intact. If you’re at the brewery you’ll be able to guess what style of beer every brewer has in his hand. THE BEER YOU'VE BEEN TRAINING FOR!

Golden-orange in colour. Aroma of citrus(oranges, grapefruit), hops and some pine. Flavour of grass, hops, some malt, earth, citrus and some spices. Medium body. Finishes with a medium bitterness. Thanks for the bottle mr_kimchee.

Pleasant enough citrus-orange/pale golden beer releasing a hoppy fruity forest aroma. Kinda creamy mouthfeel with nice lingering finish that feels somewhat refreshing and slightly bitter.

Great brew, could do with a little more hopping though. Very nice looking, great malting, needed just a tad more hoppiness at the aftertaste. Overall it is a kickass.

Clear amber body under a sloppy white head. Orange citrus and taffy in the aroma. The sweetness continues in the flavor, it makes up the malt base along with some caramel notes. Hop flavors are pine and pineapple, although the strong carbonation makes detecting them difficult. Resinous finish. This beer's subdued hops are fine by me, but I disliked the taffy sweetness - it didn't fit well in this style of beer.

Holdwine (1075) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 29, 2004
What a great surprise. Ordered because it was the only micro offered, this puppy came through in spades. Yeastiness keeps a slight damper on zooming fresh hops. Malting is clear and strong. Fruitiness supreme with strong citrus and pineapple(?). A great IPA.

mjgdawg (13) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Great orange/amber color. The initialy scent is inviting and complex with tqinges of pineapple and hops. Tastes great with full and detailed flavor of hops accented with various fruits. Good thirst quencher and great overall beer. Best IPA in my opinion.

Light orange-gold, slightly hazy. Hops aroma with hints of pineapple. Crisp pine hops flavor. Reasonable well balanced.
