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.

On tap at the pub.The color is a hazy honey with a thin off white head. The aroma is of hops and more hops.The taste is also of hops and citrus fruits, but something is missing. It is a decent I.P.A..

20080730 Tap at brewpub. Lots of c hops right off the bat and clear through to the finish. Simcoe in the flavor gives a nice tropical note. Good stuff for a brewpub IPA though it is no world beater.

Quevillon (2841) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2008
Bu sur place en fut (20oz), le 25/9/08. Bronde très brumeuse, mince collet avec un peu de dentelle. Arome d’houblon légèrment amère, des notes d’agrume un peu sûrette. Goût d’agrume (surtout des citrons) houblonné, sûrette dans la bouche par une amèreturme plaisant, finission sec. Rien de spécial, juste une IPA plaisant!

Tap @ Blind Tiger. Poured a hazy orange-copper color with a thin white head. Citrus and worty aroma. The flavor was worty with some citrus. There was a long earthy and bitter finish. Dry with a light-medium body.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2008
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 (4959) - 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 (1022) - 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.
