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.

Amber-orange colour. Aroma of citrus, spice, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavour profile. Medium dryness for style. Caramel in the finish. Not bad, but not my preferred type of IPA.

12oz bottle-pours a foamy rich light tan head that laces and copper color. Aroma is resin/some citrus rind, sweet caramel-medium malt. Taste is light resin/some citrus rind hops bite, sweet caramel-medium malt. Nice, easy IPA, may be a bit thin. Thanks decaturstevo for sharing.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark amber with a foamy beige head. For me the aroma is floral with a hint of resin. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is roasted malt with a lot of hop - floral/citrus/pine? More floral. Finishes nicely bitter. Better than many.

Sammy (8384) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2004
Very Bitter and salty and not as hoppy as expected. I think I kept it from becoming too cold and flattening the hops effect. I got a head. Maybe it was Premier Gourmet storing it too cold or old. Did not get the hops or citrus flavour expected from this brew or the IPA type.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - 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 isn’t all that novel, but it’s a very well-executed IPA. A bit of sweet toasted malt along with some lingering fruit. It’s a very quaffable IPA.

DocLock (7729) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Pours dark copper, almost ruby red with a medium, creamy off-white head. Aroma of hops, malt, fruit, spice, pine. Tastes malty, hoppy, with a fruity, spicy finish. Medium palate. Finishes hoppy, dry, slightly sour, with a slightly "off....metallic" taste at the finish, which I had to deduct for. A good, but not elite, IPA.
