Really nice overtones on this IPA. Very great flavor of hops and a wonderful aftertaste too.

Nice IPA. Piney hops character in the aroma and flavor. Iím more a fan of citrus hops, but this one isnít in-your-face with the piney hops, so I really enjoyed it.

Pours a dark golden color with a off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is tropical fruits and a really sweet malt backbone. Taste is grapefruit and mango, strong caramel backbone that helps balances out the bitter grapefruit taste, then it goes back to a lingering bitter finish. Solid IPA .

On tap at Sharkeyís, Radford. Pours hazy amber with nice head. Balanced taste, fairly dry finish. Pretty standard IPA, good but not knocking socks off.

Syzzer (606) - Oregon, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Pretty good IPA, but tamed on the hops compared to their CDA (or Black IPA). Light yellow/golden in color. Some kind of interesting hint of nuts and hemp. Overall a pretty good IPA. (From Oregon Gardens Brewfest 2012) Commercial Description: ""Wonderful complex flavos, like no other, simply a great tasting IPA. Itís balanced, strong malt backbone, citrusy nose, with hints of pine and grass."" IBU: 82 ABV: 7.3 Color: Golden

Bottle. Pours literally the ideal colour for an ipa/ pale ale. beautiful copper with a tint of orange. decently thick one finger + head that lingers. aroma is citrus and pine with a soothing background of malty goodness. Hits all the right flavour notes for an IPA- piney, grass, citrus with a nice sweet base. good, balanced, interesting, delicious. Just the right amount of bitterness on the finish so you know they didnít skimp on the hops. One of the best IPAís Iíve had recently. Packs a punch at 7.3% abv- i thought that wasnít allowed in Utah........:) Really, really good.

Pours an orangish color with a small white head that fades quickly. Aroma is sticky hops and malts. The taste is orange peel, grapefruit, and a good malt backbone. A good IPA.

Hazy orange, bubbles and particulate matter, medium off-white head which lingers in subdued form. Very nice aroma of citrus hops, bit of pine, faint sweet malt. Medium body. Flavor is refreshing and bitter grapefruit hops, smoothed out by the malt in the background. Long bitter finish. Excellent IPA.
