Bold, spicy and menacingly delicious, this American-hopped India Pale Ale offers an aromatic punch and then follows through with a lasting, full-bodied finish.

Bottle: Poured a shimmering opaque light copper-amber ale into the glass. Decent 2 finger rocky cap lasts well and laces. Aroma is a massive gob-smack of Cascade and Warrior hops with a big floral-grapefruit bouquet, some earthy sweetness from the malts. Impression: Substantial malt backbone, soapy mouth feel, medium-light body... citrusy hop-rich smooth character. Profile: Up front rich amber malts attack for just a second then a rush of NW hops produce a acerbic marmalade on toast effect....mid palate the hops get stronger as the bready toasty malts drop back,,,,as you approach the finish it turns slightly dry as the hops still hang in creating a bittering finish and lingering metallic aftertaste. This is a rock solid crafted APA with all the Pacific NW hop flair out pacing the big malts...not as full bodied and balanced as Libery ale but good standard sipping fare for hop heads.

Good enough to be a non important milestone, also canít believe Iíve never rated this. #2900. Bottle, draft, possibly cask. Orange pour with white head. Some herbal, grassy hop aromas. Flavor are herbal, grassy and light citrus hop tones, and a big malt presence.

JakobHoumoller (16) - DENMARK - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber colour. The aroma has notes of pine, resin and caramel. No real hop aroma, maybe an old bottle? The taste is quite hoppy, pine and some grapefruit balanced with a slight malty sweetness. Nice balanced hop and alcohol finish, with a lingering bitterness. Nice IPA.

Mastelefish (80) - North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Pours an amber with a thin white head. Hops are floral and citrusy at the nose. A bitter taste through and through without much sweetness from malts. A medium body with a dry finish. Good all around.

dbhenry (120) - El Paso, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2014
This is a very heavily hopped brew. It is medium amber and cloudy in appearance. The hops overbalance the malt flavors somewhat, but overall a fine ale. Medium to full bodied.

EcnarM (74) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a dark golden color from the keg with a medium thick white head. Aroma was weaker than expected. Grapefruit comes through first in the taste with moderate balancing of the malts behind. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cmiller54hr (40) - Manitou, Kentucky, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Pours hazy orange. Strong citrus notes. Extreme grapefruit taste but finishes clean. A great IPA that Iíll come back to.

MadRobin (1848) - Silver Spring, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Clearly, bright orangey amber with a 1-finger khaki head and good lacing. Aroma of caramel, light fruit and floral hops. Taste of caramel, citrus and fruity hops. Medium body and high/medium carbonization. The name of this beer was is deceptive. (Malt Devil would be closer to reality.) It's a fairly straightforward fruity IPA with a lot of malt and only a little hop complexity. Pleasant to drink, but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour. Subtle, if not plain, aroma of beans and nuts. Slight caramel. Hoppy but not so much, good strong palate but was hoping for more flavor. Nothing special.
