This IPA Pours an orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is sweet, pineapple, pine and herbal. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are piney and floral. Medium to highly bitter IPA. Nice blend of warrior and tomahawk hops. Nice orange malts. Nice balance. Very decent IPA. Lots of malt sweetness with all that hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2006 Wow. My wife brought some back from her recent trip to PA. This could replace Terrapin Rye as our daily beer. The aroma was something else. Very, very hoppy, but also with a different, more mellow, not so resin-based smell. The mouthfell makes one feel like you’re tasting nectar. No hop bitterness or chewiness. I hear that the lucky folks in PA can get this on Cask. I’m moving.

Bottle. Pours amber\gold with a average sized off-white head. Aroma of pine wood smelling Hops, and citrus, and malts. The flavor is malty, slight sweetness up-front, citrusy, with a hoppy dry finish. Good healthy body, good brew.

desurfer (1209) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2006
Clear, medium amber body with little head. Aroma is spicy and hoppy, but fades away too quickly. The first sip is an immediate hit of piney, peppery hops. This is balanced by a thick (but not syrupy), creamy maltiness. The hop profile is really, really pleasing. Plenty powerful but not overkill. Palate is smooth, with a sticky, spicy finish. Super good!

Man… I can’t remember who the heck sent me this not more than a month ago… Maybe zathrus13?? Anyway, Thank You!

Rating #945
A beautiful copper body and a luscious ivory head… coats with heavy sheets of lacing! The aroma is an intense effect of dry hopping… very floral, very clean and fresh, very piney / citric! I totally dig that aroma… it’s a hop tea! The flavor has a nice bready caramel presence and a citric, oily / zesty super dry bittering finish. I have to say… the body seems a bit weak for the intense aroma… and the flavor gives off a slightly astringent feeling about 3 seconds after the beer has been swallowed… it reminds me of overly ripened cumquats that I picked off trees and ate as a kid. Anyhow, I am all about the hugely bright and hoppy aroma!

BrockLanders (771) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2006
Big gold-amber pour...big whitish head. Very IPA-like in the nose...citrusy, floral. The bottle says imperial amber....so I was curious if there’d be much difference. Fairly bitter, but with a more pronounced malt presence than say your garden variety IPA. Pretty tasty, but not on par with the best.

brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - APR 8, 2006
12 oz bottle thanks to JHop! Poured dark orange with big and spacious carbonation. Medium foamy head (big bubbles). Lots of citrus hops in the nose, orange mostly with hints of citrus peal. Heavy smelling. The flavor starts with citrus orange hop bitterness that is balanced by moving quickly to a creamy malt body that is also citrus dominated. From there you find a spicy hop finish that is long and bitter. Not too bad. I can see why people like this.

Many thanks go to kramer17801 for this awesome brew! Pours a transparent amber with a bone white head. The aroma is fresh and floral, lots of pine elements as well as some citrus and very light caramel malt. The flavor also holds a fair amount of pine and citrus that is balanced with the light malt, more like a hop massage than a hop punch. Nice body for an IPA, a bit sticky, it’s a bit creamy over the tounge and never feels watery. The finish has a pleasant bitterness to it that sticks around and slowly fades away. This is one well balanced beer overall, it never seems take you over the edge in any one direction, though the hop presence is big enough to know it fits its style.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 5, 2006
12 oz. Bottle. Amazing pine and citrus nose with some sweet malt noted. Pour a clear light amber color with a frothy white head and weepy lacing. Great orange and pine flavor with a great malt profile. More flavor than bitterness. The beer has enough bitterness to balance with the malt Great IPA. I would drink a lot of this if I could. I want more.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2006
Clear amber body with a small but dense foamy head. Mild grassy, spicy hop aroma with balancing sugar cookie. Great flavor! Resinous mandarin orange flesh and grapefruit rind hops over a simple light caramel foundation. Velvety mouthfeel. Lasting dry, resinous finish invites you back for another gulp. I say "gulp" because this beer is very clean, has good mouthfeel and just plain tastes good.
