Bottled. Thanks to Lars R.
Dark amber colour with a persistent hop-induced foam. Malt stands back in aroma, here the hops speak the loudest about grape, wood and citrus. Flavourwise, it’s malty, but again hops dominate, and I think Centennial plays an important role, with its grapey, resiny character. Mouthfeel is chewy, and the attenuation seems to be average. Good beer! What I don’t get is how can a beer with OG 1070 and FG 1015 be 6%??? Beerapprentice (208) - Doylestown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2009
On draft at Spuyten Duyvil. Pours a clear, dark amber colour with a slight white head. Aroma of hops, malts, and grapefruit. Flavour of hops, grassy notes, malts,and citrus. buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - JUN 17, 2009
Exceptionally good IPA that had a real hop bite without being *too* overbearing. Strong citrus smell, strong malty backbone, and a nice thick head all made this one memorable. Almost reminded me more of a very balance Double IPA. mar (5457) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2009

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2011 On tap at Rattle n Hum and at Good Beer. Nice sweaty hop aroma and an attractive red/dark gold pour. The flavor is malty, but well hopped too. West Coast IPA with an astringent finish and nice hop echoes. No shortage of anything in this one. italianjohn (3312) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2009

Believe it or not, a step down from their amber ale. Very nice citrus pine aroma. Pours amber with a big fluffy head. Fkavor is hoppy with a nice malt balance. Very good dry finish. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Tasty but somewhat one-dimensional. Nice grassy hops, bit of crisp maltiness. Very drinkable.
