COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A base of pale, Munich, and Carapils malts is just enough to contain the massive hop flavor and aroma packed into this highly drinkable IPA. A blend of four American hop varieties is added four times in the kettle and twice in the fermenter for a complex and layered hop experience. Best served at 45-50˚F in a tulip or English style pint glass.

draught@Erzbierschof - pours a bright bronze beer under a solid long lasting foam; correct lacework; chewy and perfumy hoppy aroma with notes of pear and quince; a good malt backbone, some malt sweetness and a fair bitterness; long lasting in a very aromatic hoppy finish with more quince and apricots - very good

Can from a trade. The sender is not on RB but thanks to him anyway. Hazy golden pour with a huge white head that lingers for awhile. Wonderful aromas of biscuit malts, floral hops, grapefruit, and butterscotch. The body is smooth, carbonated, and about medium. The taste is as floral and zesty as the aroma promises with a long lasting hopped bitterness at the finale. Very tasty IPA.

pinkie (457) - New York, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Pours a hazed orange with some lighter lemon yellow hues. A fat and firm head of off white foam that wonít fall and sticks to the glass like itís in love. The nose is outrageous with grapefruit. The tart fruit and the earthy rind. Monstrous hops. The malt is a touch of sweetness on the nose and there are some pine needles. Nothing will prepare you for the taste. This malt is special and itís unique. it tastes like a sugar cookie. It has substance and form but itís not heavy or full. It has some grainy sugar on it. The grapefruit is bright and vivid and there is even more citric character as you drink. Touch of the lemon zest. A bit of dank and grass comes forward on the nose to introduce a soft spice on the nose and on the palate. In the drink there is a lip smacking bitter and a some sticky resin to finish dry and delicious.

This one will make you see colors.

Pours a golden color with a light white head that sticks around and provides a lot of lacing. Smells of critus and piny notes, taste is very fruity not so bitter and some sweetness from malts to balance. This is a good IPA had a bunch of gel/yeast residue in my can which made it seem very cloudy

DialSquare (2530) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Six pack cans from Whole Foods in Greenville. Orange pour with thin off-white head and soapy sick. Aroma is pleasant mix of citrus and pine. Tastes are pine, caramel malt, lemon and grapefruit. Other tropical fruits in there too. Thereís a salty vibe in the even grassy bitter finish. Excellent. We enjoyed it more and more over the course of the sixer. 8.0

blklab2007 (1940) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Can poured an amber in color with a one finger white head that retained a covering. Aroma has light citrus, grass, mild resins, sweet malt, and faint flowers. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation nice and strong. Flavor gets some light bitterness, grass, resins, sweet supporting malt, and some candied hop cones. Overall the beer is clean and the hops come through without being over done.
