Our organic IPA uses Tomahawk, Cascade, and Centennial hops for a rustic, rough-hewn hop character that pairs great with food or relaxing among friends. Prominent citrus and pine aromas and bitterness that is not over the top balances this medium bodied copper-colored brew.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 I don’t know who is giving this beer a bad reputation. In my opinion this is one of the benchmarkers. I also believe there should be (2)categories of IPA’s. I love some of the hoppier IPA’s but this one gives you the bite with a smooth coffee kind of finish.I always drink this beer very cold out of a frosty mug. Try this beer you will not be let down

Nice clear dark amber red with a thick beige head. The commercial description on the bottle had me set up for an amzing aroma of Tomahawk, Centennial and Cascade. Unfortunately, it was weak grapefruit and some caramel, a letdown. The flavor is a big mix of toasted caramel malt/toffee and hops that provide plenty of bitterness but not much hop flavor, maybe a little grapefruit but not the tasty blast of piney Pacific NW hops that the bottle leads you to believe. Pleasantly sweet, lots of hop bitterness. Lingering bitter finish. Medium creamy texture with very light carbonation. Decent head retention, good lacing. Overall, drinkable but it needs more aroma and flavoring hops.

I rather enjoyed this. Amber, touch of reddish in the color, decent head fades. Aroma is slightly roasty and a bit of herbal hops. Malt focused but not sweet, flavors of toffee and roast. Herbal, bitter hop finish. Tasty, I liked this, particularly as a change of pace. English sensibility with American hopping rates.

As an APA, I’d probably rate this higher. As an IPA, well, it comes across as an APA. Dark orange with a creamy off-white head, it has a sturdy caramel aroma with gentle grapefruit and floral hops. Medium bodied. The flavor is caramel with a touch of butterscotch, the hop bitterness clearly playing a back-up role. Light bitter finish that ends abruptly.

Thanks to elnadeau for sharing This is a very bitter and dry IPA. it not bad, but not great.

Bottle: Lots of caramel and toffee in the aroma with hints of floral hops. Pours a mostly transparent amber with a minimal yellowish-white head. Caramel and toffee up front with a pretty big floral hopped finish that lingers for a little in the aftertaste. Slightly metallic in the finish as well.

12oz bottle. Rusty brown clear appearance, tin, toast and nuts in the nose with a metallic hop note. Earthy, gritty, peat-like grassy hop flavor with more nuts and bread crust. Weird, not exactly flavorful or enjoyable.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Pours a medium amber color. Aromas of citrus hops, sweet malts, and a hint of spice. Flavor of grapefruit, grass, and caramel.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2005
Caramel malt aroma stands out. Dark orange with a large and firm white head. Tastes like a super hoppy amber ale..lots of malty caramel flavors followed by a smack of hops int he finish. Not very well integrated flavor wise, but drinkable enough.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2005
citrusy yellow head, lacey brown body, strong alc. flavor sweet, syrupy, barley wine-ish, sprucey and well roasted not unlike a deliciouse sandwich eaten in haste and deeply regreted because of a scraped throat
