scarletfire65 (968) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Pours a hazy deep golden, with a fine bone white head, recedes to a thin cap and leaves a lot of thick lacing. Very nice looking pour. The aroma is powerful, with fresh floral hops, spruce, peach, sage. Medium bodied, solid carbonation, slightly sticky, lots of piney, grassy, and orange hop flavors, with a crisp, clean, bright, bitter finish. Doesnít feel like 7.3%.

After reading "Cheapís" rating on this beer, I knew I had to try it. And it was everything he said he was going to taste like. Hoppy, complex, balanced brew. Can taste the pine and grass hops...nice!!!

Pint on tap. Itís dark yellow, clear, and has good lacing. Bitter, bitter bitter, though. I kind of disagree with the description...I didnít find it exceptionally malty or complex, actually. Kind of a basic IPA, just fine, but youíre not missing anything.

The hazy amber body, and the relatively small, but durable, head gave this beer an attractive look. The smell was mostly citric hops with some overtones of hay. The taste had a crisp bitterness from the generous levels of hops, and the malt was biscuit like and light. The finish was citric and slightly spicy. If there was anything to dislike about this beer, it was the slightly metallic aftertaste. The body was medium thick,and allowed the hops to coat the tongue. This was well put together IPA for me.

Amber color. Sweet malt and hop initial sips. High alc is masked by big malt sweetness. Slightly grapefruity and chewy. Not the first ipa I would reach for, but definitely if I was to recommend a sweet brew. With high hop content.
