COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Bitter hop aroma with light chocolate. Palate is thin and there is a lack of flavor other than hops. Pretty boring and typical brewpub fare.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Draught at the BrewPub: Floral hop aroma with notes of grapefruit and citrus. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy, off-white head that lasted throughout. Good lacing. Hazy. Medium bitter flavor. Hoppy, with notes of grapefruit and Cascades. Medium body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Hoppy, but not bitter, finish. Not very bitter. No way it’s the claimed 90 IBUs. Lacking in body.

agl108 (791) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On draft at Vermont Pub and Brewery, Burlington. Poured copper with minimal head. Piney, citrus nose. Lots of typical IPA hoppiness. Overly bitter, so much so that it takes away from the beer.

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
Clear straight golden ale with a nice haze. Surprisingly not as aromatic as I would have anticipated. The menu claims this beast at 95 IBUs. While you can figure out some white grapefruit and floral characteristics, it’s in mouth that everything happens. I say everything, but its maltiness remains rather tame and could never defend the thesis of being of service to the hops. This beer is hop juice really. Strongly grapefruity bitterness with a hop leaf, almost piney, astringent feel from the malt’s timidity - dry, dry, dry. Straightforward and not much to my taste I’m afraid.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2007
(draught at the brewpub) pale gold with slightly off white head. Grapefruit/pine aroma. Flavor is a LOT of hops - pine and citrus. I’d’ve called it an imperial IPA.

JoeMcPhee (8511) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2007
Vermont Brewers Fest ’07. Very pale golden with a fresh hoppy aroma. Light pine and orange. Thin body and flavour though. Lightly fruity. Orange/resiny bitterness on the back but the lack of maltiness really detracts from this one.
