COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-flavored hop assault delightfully lacking in balance. A combination of Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Columbus hops are used to produce pungent aromas of grapefruit, pine and citrus.

Location: Draft at the Dutch in SoHo, 7/23/12

Aroma: This one has a nose of resin/pine hops, and some light citrus
Appearance: It pours a clear gold-orange, with a white head and mid-heavy lace
Flavor: The taste of this beer is medium-plus bitter with some minimal sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, with a decently smooth feel, and a fairly heavy dry finish
Overall Impression: This was a pretty decent IPA for sure. It was not a standout, but a solid one with a nice, heavy hoppy feel.

I really enjoyed this IPA. Great aroma of hops and a tiny bit of citrus. Cloudy yellow pour with a decent head. Taste was all hops but it wasn’t bitter. Just a nice clean hop taste left on the palate.

Jow (2086) - New York, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Tap at Stagshead. Pours hazy orange with thin head. Nose of pine and resin. Tastes of light orange citrus, pine forest, malt, earth, and light woody. Medium bodied and light sticky.

DrSilverworm (6289) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2012
12oz bottle. Mostly clear orange color. Thin fizzing off-white head. Little dots of lace. Good nice light smooth carbonation. Lighter body. Very easy to gulp down. Satisfying bitter taste. Great hip aroma - pine, resin, herbal aromas. Some citrus. Good toasty malt balance. Great IPA to session.

Way too piney. I much prefer their older IPA staple "Hops Infusion". Shame they got rid of that in favor of this lesser brew. It was all quite average. The citrus aroma that is advertised did not come through enough in the nose or taste. Mediocre.

Arayaga2 (1775) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Gold with a thin white head. Aroma is standard mild citrus, and taste is the same with bready malt and bitter pithy hops. Clean and uninteresting $1.80/12 oz

Leafs93 (1666) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma is citrus, resin and very faint malts, hard time discerning them. Taste is bittersweet with a medium mouth feel and oily texture.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2012
On cask at Barcade Jersey City with Paul. Pours a faintly hazed amber with a thin to medium sized white head. Soft caramel, light citrus, hops. Medium bodied, sweet and malty. Light bitterness picks up touches of quinine on the finish. Smooth and easy drinking, but an otherwise unremarkable IPA.

Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2012
On tap at the Knick. Nice hoppy aroma, floral and spicy. Amber clear with thin white lightly-lacing head. Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Starts pretty dry, with mild grain sweetness and big bitter hop profile. Spicy and bitter in the finish with lasting bitter after.

DalzAle (1975) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle thanks to dmac! Clear dark golden pour, a little soapy head and an aroma of hay and fresh crisp hops/green apple. Flavor is papery hops, very stale bitters and very dry pine on the aftertaste. Not bad, but not what I generally look for in an IPA.
