Not a bad little IPA pours and smells like you would expect. It even has all the flavor of a decent IPA mouthfeel is a little thin. Good stuff and I will buy again but not amazing. Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Good deep orange body with a large frothy off-white head. Aroma is of pine, citrus, with light vanilla overtones. Flavor is excellent for an IPA, hoppy and bitter, with a nice malt compliment. Excellent springy ending. Big thanks to brentfeesh for sending this to me as part of his "recovery" plan. =) starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Hazy gold colour, insane amounts of pine aroma. Hoppy! Very nice. Clean, crisp, deliciously bitter. I approve. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 2, 2006

I was shocked when I noticed I had not rated this one - I’ve had many since I’ve been rating. Pours hazy amber with a nice sized white head with nice lacing. Hops hit hard on the aroma - lots of citrus and floral qualities. Malt is apparent to give some balance. Fuller body than most IPAs and a good deal of frothy smooth carbonation. Starts off with a huge amount of floral hops and rich malt to balance them. Bits of woody hops are in the mix also. Then comes a prickly pinecone sensation from the carbonation and citrus / piney hop aspect. Excellent IPA.

Golden amber appearance with slight head retention and attractive lacing. Large nose, showing floral notes and sweet hops. Full crisp mouthfeel, well-balanced hop profile, grapefruit and minerals, ending in a medium, clean finish. Very enjoyable IPA. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2006
Hazy golden IPA with a thick creamy white head. Floral C-hops with nutty maderized malt in aroma. In mouth, a fragrant IPA with earthy citrus, a biscuitty malt, light mint notes, lingering hops covering the mouth. A very nice IPA from a trade with Piscator, Nov. 2005. smhncabot (310) - Cabot, Arkansas, USA - JUL 28, 2006
I love this ipa. i can always buy and never be disappointed. Aroma is west coast hop with some pale malt underneath. Flavor is beautiful sweet citrus, very orange. Finish is a nice dry bitterness. There are no holes in this taste solid all the way. Everything i want in a base IPA. RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2006
bottle. batch 7397. Aroma: Hops grab hold of my nose and don’t let go. Citrus (more orange than grapefruit). A nice floral aroma that’s more fresh flowers than perfume or potpurri. Also getting a great piney aroma reminiscient of walking through an old-growth pine forest. Fresh and clean. Underneath all that is a sweet malt aroma that peeks out invitingly. Appearance: Light orange and hazy. Head was white and huge. Lingered a good long time, too. Nice lacing. Flavor: Orange, honey, spice, and floral hop flavors all come through together. The maltiness in the middle is moderately sweet with notes of caramel. The bitterness is good, not too agressive but does its job. Getting some nice grass notes in the aftertaste. Palate: medium-light bodied. Moderate carbonation. Finish was medium dry. Some alcohol warming on back of tongue. Overall: A great IPA and easy to drink to boot. Everything works together well. siriusbugeater (5) - Clayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2006 does not count
Two hearted bells is a good. I always compare which I know I should not do but it is not as tasty as the Stone IPA or Titan IPA good but Bells has better beers.
