A big bitter 77 IBU India Pale Ale, spiced with a blend of fragrant Magnum, Simcoe, and Cascade hops. An American IPA receipe designed by our late Brewmaster, Greg Noonan. He said that he wanted this to represent the American style IPAs being brewed by the creative brewers using todays malt and hop varieties.

New England Bucket List Trip #137. Keg at the brewpub. Pours a clear vibrant yellow with a thin creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of spicy, herbal, resin hops, dilly, thyme, pale malt, hints of raisin. The taste is tropical, citrus, pine hops, spice, pale malt. Medium bodied, mild lingering spice.

BeerGolem (757) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
Sample on tap at brewpub. Pours clear orange with minimal head and some lacing. Not much aroma: distant floral and hoppy notes. Not much on taste neither. Strong bitterness. Maybe this would be better on pint, but seems to me there are plenty of better IPA out there.

Braudog (6066) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Light golden beer. Overall, a middle of the road brew without much to say about it. It’s a "house beer" with just the slightest of hop components. (#5809, 10/9/2014)

beerproject (129) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Aroma is quite light with grapefruit and floral notes. Taste is well balanced bitter up front, followed by more american hop citrus, grapefruit and a touch of dank. Pretty good beer, but on the light side of ipa.

jercraigs (9041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
2013-04-28. Crisp bright orange body small off-white head. Sort of pithy musty orange citrus in the aroma. 7+ Flavour is fairly bitter, sort of orange and tangerine, light leafy green hop undertones. 7+ Average bodied palate, carbonation suits it. Decent IPA. On tap at the brewpub

Metalchopz (2713) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Sampled at the brewpub. Golden with an off-white head. The nose is hoppy with grapefruit, pine and grass. Also, some sweetness. The taste is as hoppy with the same notes and a grainy finish, and bitterness lingering. Dry mouthfeel. This is definitely the hoppiest beer here so far.
