COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, rich IPA features Simcoe hops which give it both a fruity, piney hop nose and a clean, ringing bitterness. IN-between, the malt flavor is slightly caramel for a touch of malt sweetness. This IPA is well-balanced and very expressive with hops.

ChainGangGuy (4883) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy, amber body with a short-lived, skimpy white head. Smell: Piney, citrus hop scent with some pale malts floating around in there. Taste: Pale malts, though no real sweetness. Instead, we jump right into the pine, citrus hop flavors with a medium bitterness. Lightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A decent, well-balanced IPA.

A little darker than the usual IPA with a great big stable head. Grapefruit and pine aroma with juicy malt. Big hop flavor maybe a little thin in body. Pine and citrus with a little bit of chlorophyll. Lingering bitterness in the finish.

Bottle. This is more like it! I had this right after Jockamo IPA, and there is no comparison. Pours a nice amber color with decent head and lacing. Nose is citrusy hops. Palate is grapefruit mostly with a malty backround. Bitter sticky aftertaste. A very decent IPA.

robforbes (2233) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2008
pour is a semi-cloudy amber with a small light beige head, excellent lacing. smell is of grapefruit, some caramel, touch of citrus. taste is crisp, medium body, citrus up front, some caramel and pineapple in the middle, bitter grapefruit hops in the end. overall a creamy light bitter finish, yet not overpowering and a hint of malt.
