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.

12 oz bottle: Pours bronze orange with a small white head and big CO2 column; decent lacing. Aroma is floral and citrus hops, with a nice bready malt. Taste is slightly bitter on the front and dry and bitter on the finish, slightly salty. Rough on the palate due to bitterness, not the easiest to drink and strong dry finish. Decent but nothing special overall.

Bottle picked up at SL.... Pours a dark orange in color. Decent little head that faded quickly. Lots of pine and grapefruit on the nose. Taste is bitter pine needles with a touch of grapefruit. Really does lack balance. Medium body easy to drink. Overall: Mehhhh, far from bad but I can think of many other IPAs that I would drink before this one.

gripweed57 (911) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Slightly hazy amber orange color topped by a small bubbly white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma mixed with citrusy, piney hops. Even a hint of Gouda cheese in the nose. Bittersweet hops dominate the palate. No malt backbone at all. Very much out of balance. Very little body or depth. Brief dry finish. Disappointing.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2012
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.

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.

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 (1878) - 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

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.
