BVery (10124) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Can. Mostly clear golden pour with a fluffy sticky white head. Aroma is sweet - caramel malt and fruit (almost pineapple). Mouthfeel has some weight. Taste is well balanced - nice sharp hop profile, but well-backed by malt. Very nice IPA.

Nephilium (1782) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Strong grapefruit/citrus aroma. Pours a hazy orange, with a thin white head. Bitter taste, with a bit of citrus, and a touch of biscuit in the finish. Not a bad IPA, but I expected a bit more from this brewer.

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Solid IPA. Nothing extremely special but well done and well rounded. A good amount of pine and resin in the nose and flavor but not over powering. I gave this to someone whos favorite beer is Sam Adams Boston Lager and he really liked this one as well. I plan on using this as an introduction to IPAs with some more people as well. Quite refreshing.

Pours a honey gold hue with a fluffy white head. A nice level of carbonation with minimal lacing. The nose is grass, pine, and floral hops with a nice caramel malt backing. The taste is a great pine explosion, delicate caramel malt, grass, and hay. Great ipa!

This is another fantastic West Coast IPA! This beer pours a clear and beautiful golden color with a thick, rich and generous white head. The head leaves a cascading and attractive lacing around the edges of the glass. The nose is full of citrus, dry hops, resin, grass, hay, earth and a light, bready maltiness. The body is smooth, creamy and totally drinkable. This is a completely satisifying and well-rounded IPA! The flavors are just about perfectly balanced, with an excellently dry and hoppy punch followed by a delicious malty backbone. There is plenty of dry citrus notes, with hints of hops resin, grapefruit, earth, light grass and spicy herbs. Its all balanced by a bready and earthy light maltiness. This is a fantasticly delicious and enjoyable IPA!

Reviewing this one as I sip on it.... Poured form the can into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. Pour generates a pretty sizeable foamy head. The aroma is just OK - which is kind of how I feel about this beer in general. Picked them up in a trade at DLD and its good, but IMO cant touch some of the more readily available IPA that I can get my hands on much more easily (such as Bells Two Hearted...). Flavor has a nice bitterness to it, but overall Im not all that impressed. Its OK, but I probably wouldnt buy this again if I had the chance... do love canned craft beer though! Lets keep this trend going!

12oz can. Pours a cloudy, orange-golden colored body with a big, two-finger width, very creamy and rocky, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is big and bold grapefruit pines at first, but as this opens up, more and more sweeter mangos, oranges, and herbal lemon-grass comes in. Just a touch of resin on the hops. Solid caramel backing with a moderate sweetness and a bit of a sticky toffee smell. Very bright and fresh nose. Nice. Flavor is similar. Fairly sweet all-around. The pines are more lemon and orange flavored with a lighter grapefruit while that herbal grass is still there with just a pinch of earthy spice. The caramels are soft and smooth and give off a bit of a biscuity sweetness, but seem to thin towards the end distracting from the cleanliness a bit. This finishes with a light to moderate bitterness and some resin as the pines start to come out more towards the end. Fairly sweet and lengthy aftertaste following a soft and smooth, lighter, almost watery body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, a solid IPA. Pretty sweet with a nice hop mixture. Very enjoyable.

Pours a orange golden color with a white head. Aroma is caramel malt hops. Flavor is much the same. Sweetness is a little different than most IPAs. Not sure what this is but it is good.
