COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is brewed using 2-Row, wheat, Vienna and caramel malts and is hopped with Summit’s for bittering and flavor and Ahtanum for aroma. This IPA was also dry-hopped, meaning hops were put in the fermentors and serving tanks to give a big citrus and spicy aroma, with Ahtanum, Challenger and Chinook hops. Our IPA is an American style IPA that has a high amount of bitterness but is well balanced and very drinkable.

22 ounce bottle shared with Ed at the Bayou. Citrus, grassy, with some caramel. The flavor is dominated by grassy hops. Lots of caramel. Brighter hop flavors, less grassy notes, better balance.

StefanSD (2191) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a cloudy copper-amber color with a big white head that has good retention and ample lacing. The aroma is spicy and salty with a mild pine kick. The taste is bitter hops forward with pine, grapefruit, thyme, salt, pepper, sweet caramel, toffee and marshmallows. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering bitter pine. Overall: Nice IPA but the malt base is a bit muddled. .

Clear golden appearance, god head retention. Good citrus and pineapple juice hop aroma. Piney, citrussy palate, mild but adequate biscuity malt, plenty of hop citrus in the finish. Good west coast IPA.

Part of the first German beer tasting in Idar-Oberstein. Thanks to Travlr. One of the things I like about these events is that I get to try beers that you would never try other wise. Sometimes for the better sometimes not. Pours an amber color with a full large off white head. Aroma is pine oil. Taste is bitter hops that is a mess. Palate is dry bitter pine. I had to eat a wild boar sausage in a roll just to get this taste out of my mouth. Blah! This stuff should be used to clean floors and is not fit for humans. We did have fun wacthing the local Germans faces as they tried this with us. Travlr got some great pictures of this.

I have a strange craving to listen to Doug and the Slugs. Odd. Doubtful purchase but the locals appear to like it. Love the label art, colour and concept. Lightly hazy light apricot colour and a small white cap with sticky blobs. Not a lot of depth in the aroma but often that is a welcome thing. Thick yet airy fruit, caramel and very faint grain, mandarin, lemon and strawberry. My nose says so it is. The taste is also good - thick with some oily goodness, early notable spice wanders around with randomness, solid taste. Caramel and grain, pepper, apricot and grapefruit. Light funk thought. Had more than enough to just drink casually - that truly is the real test of enjoyment - and I dig it, mainly the spicy challenge. Made my eyes feel furry. I’ve been tricked before by letting a brewery reel me in with a decent IPA to buy other offerings and that may just happen here.

650 ml bottle. Pours a copper color with medium head. Aromas of malt, toffee and pine. Flavors of malt, orange, burnt sugar, and resin, with a piney bitter finish. Nice

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Draft sample (dry hopped with Nelson). Hazy gold in colour with moderate carbonation. Strong aromas of guava, pink grapefruit, cut grass, and crispy pale malt. Tropical and sweet citrus hops pretty much take over in the mouth, but there are traces of grass, minerals, and aloe in there as well. Sharp but restrained bitterness. Shades of Toppling Goliath here. A very enjoyable beer.

A fantastic IPA. Pours a hazy orange with pillowy white marshmallow head. Nice lacing. Aromas are corn syrup and fresh pine needles. Flavors wonderfully balanced. Nice pine forward hop bitterness with a great malt backbone. Thanks kathouse for this gem.

patricks110 (1776) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
Solid IPA with mild hop bitterness. Pours a bright gold with a hint of orange in the body. The nose is hoppy and has mild pine with tons of citrus fruits. Ligh toasted malts and a bit of sweetness up fornt then moderate bitterness and light resinous smack on the finish. Overall quite nice

ThirstyBird (1706) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2014
Thanks erzengel for sharing!!! Pours a clear deep gold color with a fluffy cream cap. The smell is caramel malt, fruit, citrus and some spice. The taste is spicy, malty - caramel, fruit, citrus ending crisp, dry and slightly bitter with a bit of soap on the end. The body is medium with nice , fine carbonation. The taste seems a bit off and is a bit sweet with the caramel an all.
