COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust India Pale Ale. Radiates with a generous amount of hops yielding a floral aroma delicately spiced with domestic magnum and hallertauer, balanced by the slightly sweet munich and caramel malts.

orange color with a moderately thin egg shell white head. aroma is quite sharp and with deep inhalations you can pick up a fair amount of pine. alcohol is present in the flavor (surprisingly strong!) and there is a grainy quality to the finish. for me this beer scores a lot of points for aroma but drops them in the flavor category...surprises me since i enjoyed their pale ale so much.

Not a bad IPA. Pour a golden color with a thin head. A nice hoppy taste, but the flavor is a bit thin and fades out before you thinking it should leaving a bitter finish.

There's a nice malty backbone to this - thick and sweet. The hops (supposedly the spotlight here) begin nicely but by the end they fail to shine - only a single note bitterness remains in the finish that becomes watery. I have no complaint about the severity of the hops - they don't all have to be palate killers - it's ust not entirely integrated. (Mine was bottled on 1/8/03 and indicates that it's brewed by Otter Creek)

Great golden colour, typical of an IPA...Hoppy smell, not overpowering, but a positive sign. A decent initial taste, but the flavour fades quickly, leaving very little to savour.

Copper colored with quickly dissapearing head. Clear and carbonated. Malty aroma with some sour notes. Slightly malty flavor with a slight astringency and sourness. Some fruity notes. More like an english style pale ale.

JCW (1276) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2003
Started off well. Light honey colored poured with a 1/4" head which it maintained. Malty in taste. It may be English IPA, I’m betting its hopped with fuggles. If so its pretty good, but it doesn’t cut it as an American IPA. A little bitter on the finish, but not a citrus or piney bitterness.

Hazy amber,off white head. Small bead. Citrus hop nose. Fruity hop palate

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2003
Light copper color, little head. Faint hop aroma. Good flavor balance, but overall everything was weak. The maltiness and hop character was definitely not ’abundant’.

Not bad...but not great.

ReRate 12/3/2002 - After drinking this one more time I found it to be lighter than I like an IPA to be. Also noted a little nuttiness to the after taste 11/19/2002 - Little to no head. Dark golden in color. Hop aroma (citrus) accompanied by slight malt. ’Average’ flavor maybe. Bitter aftertaste. Not as hoppy as the majority of American IPAs
