COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bright sunrise orange in color, this American IPA is boldly hopped with East Kent Goldings, Cascade and locally grown hop varieties to give an intense yet powerfully smooth bitterness. The subtle caramel maltiness only accents the citrus hop highlights. Dry hopped with an incredible 2-1/2 pounds per barrel, this American style IPA is handcrafted to be extraordinarily refreshing.

Bottle poured into pint glass has orange amber color with light carbonation. Hops really stand out in this beer. Nice pine flavors and very good overall balance. Another local beer that I plan to get again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I donít remember much about this one, other than that the others in our tasting session thought it was the bitterest and most disgusting beer theyíd ever had (it wasnít that bitter, nor was it that terrible, but it wasnít a great IPA). Had on tap at the brewery/vineyard. Most of their beer was pretty forgettable.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/amber with a thick, lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy hops and light caramel malts. The hops are very strong in this IPA, and it is very grapefruit-like in the finish. Average texture. A nice hoppy IPA.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2011
Deep amber gold pour with a bright white head. Transparent brew. The aroma is spicy and fairly citrusy with just a kiss of light caramel malt contributing to the nose and to the flavour. Lots of sweet toffee and some rich malts. The beer isnít all that novel, but itís a very well-executed IPA. A bit of sweet toasted malt along with some lingering fruit. Itís a very quaffable IPA.

The beer pours clear brown with a creamy beige head that didnít last very long but left a nice lacing. Aroma is predominantly earthy, herbal hops, with a decent amount of malt that backs it up with a nice caramel aroma. The citrus hops come out a bit more as it warms. The taste is more hops, a bit spicy, but well balanced by malt. There is a moderate bitterness, but not overpowering. Finish is malty with some spicy hops and a lingering light hop bitterness. Overall, I felt like this was a very solid, well balanced IPA, probably could have used some more hops though.
