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!

I don’t know what everybody else was talking about...poured huge ass head that did thin out, but left some lacing, orange amber color...light aroma, floral with big citrus...tasted very citrusy and peppery up front, with a subtle easy hop bitterness at the end...finish sweet and peppery...good stuff!!

Pours an airy cream colored head on an unclear orange body. Mild but nice aroma. Hops, flowers, toffee and oranges. Hops in the flavor also but not a lot. Notes of nut, fruit and plum. A pretty good IPA!

A hazy orange beer with a small disappearing white head. The aroma is lovely sweet and hoppy. The flavor is sweet malty and nicely hopped with notes of oil before a dry hoppy end sets in.

09.11.04 12oz bottle courtesy of Goldtwins. First off, I already love any beer that has a fishing related label, so this beer could have been terrible and I’d still give it props. Luckily, the beer is very good so I don’t have to. Pours a slightly clouded golden with slight head and little lace. Aromas are candy sweet, freshly herbal and grassy, light pine. Flavors are more pine and big dry-hoppy goodness right up front. The beer gets right to the point, very nice, and there’s a real kick of bitterness as the deal closes. This would make a great everyday quaff. Thanks again, Larry!

Bottled: Golden coloured. Unclear. Off white medium sized head. Hops, fruit and sweetness in the aroma. Hoppy and fruity flavour with some citric notes. Has a latent harsh bitterness lingering in the background. Very interesting beer provided by the incredible CaptainCougar. Thanks.

Sammy (9280) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2004
Very Good though not exceptional IPA. On the plus bitter side, with citrus from Chinook hops? Citrus aroma. Smooth. Well gulped on the night of a humid day. Malts present though not that balanced. Delicate taste, medium mouthfeel. Bronze and foamy head. Thanks Mr_kimchee.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 5, 2004
This is an IPA with a nice full, malty body. The citrus favor comes right from the hop aroma up front. Everything from the color and lacing to the finish is more complete than most of this style. Finish lingers and is mostly of pine. The palate isn’t as lively as the sister APA (420), but it is smooth.

Bottle from Goldtwins. Poured an orangish color, slightly hazy. Head was present for an instant, lacing minimal. Aroma is malty and hoppy. Floral and citric. Taste is malt and then a long hop finish. Refreshing.

I had this side-by-side with the Speakeasy Big Daddy in a tasting with bu11zeye and TChrome, and for at least the first half of the bottle I was in disagreement with them, because I thought this more enjoyable than the Speakeasy. Decent head production, darker than the Speakeasy. Great aroma to me, fresh, floral, bready, with some dill (as in dill pickles). There was a malt backbone here where the Speakeasy didn’t have it. Favorably impressed.
