22oz bottle, received as an extra in trade, thanks Ben. Pours a clear, deep Amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, orange, some pine, medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, some cereal, some caramel, pine hops, grapefruit, tangerine, with a light, citrus, bitter hop finish. Very tasty. Wish this was in my distribution.

Pours a golden hue. Lots of hops on the nose and transfers well to the taste. With slight resin and vegetable notes. Really great fresh hop. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The huge hoppy aroma and gigantic head are the first things that stand out. A delightful mix of pine, citrus, and grass. This carries over to the flavor with a blend of fresh Simcoe, Amarillo, Columbus, Centennial, and Cascade hops. Thankfully, they didnít ignore the malt as the backbone stands up to the hops. Biting and bitter, as an IPA should be, this celebrates hops without being heavy handed. Although it does pack 70 IBUs and 6.2% ABV. Itís really, really good.

Bottle date: earlier. A: Pours a copper ale with a finger of creamy white head which falls to a sheet with a central cap over this excellently clarified beer. Rings for lace. S: Hops a cascadian and centennial. Plenty of the beautiful citric hops. I like that there is a certain element to this which reminds me of flinstones vitamins. A sweet malt lies underneath and is obvious. T: Bitter and spicy. Nice resin flavor with some grapefruit rind and some grassy flavors. A stong malt presence help balance out the hops here, but not too much. A little more diversity in the hops, and theyíve got a real winner here. M: Medium bodied with a fine, lower carb and a semi slick finish. O: As usual, I really like their beers. Glad to have a company in my neck making consistently delicious beer in cans and doing some odd stuff. Serving type: bottle 10-05-2011
