My Bottom Line:BREWMUSKCLES (2767) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Crunchy malt biscuits and sandy, floral and citrusy hoppiness succulently combine in a highly drinkable mouthfeel made for long sessions. This well-balanced American IPA must be wonderful on cask.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A frail veil of foam tops the clear blond.
-Hops also blossom into piney and spicy components.
-The chewy maltiness is light enough to make this levelled IPA a quencher.
-The low carbonation helps one to revel in all of this beer’s wise flavors.

I LIKE WHAT DICKENSONBEER SAID ONLY I THOUGHT THE BEER WAS QUITE ORANGE AND THAT THE MALT FLAVOR WAS MORE MEDIUM THAN LIGHT. BEAUTIFUL AROMA. GREAT INDOORS (AIR CONDITIONED) ON A HOT SUNNY DAY. LIGHT FOOD. A REAL QUENCHER! HogTownHarry (7287) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - MAR 28, 2007
Draught. At Cole’s in Buffalo, NY. Poured clear deep burnt amber colour with a small off-white head. Lovely sharp resin/pine hop aroma that opens further to sweet light malt and definite pineapple fruitiness; some alcohol presence. Strong hoppy taste, somewhat herbal resen/spruce with fruity malt in the background, quite bitter indeed (a nice alpha zing on the tongue) but reasonably balanced, not a monster - long bitter finish, grapefruit teeth-squeaking astringency over an average body and carbonation - solid IPA, great post-pint hoppy burps!!!

(On tap) Clear, amber golden with an off-white head. Fresh, citric aroma. Medium-bodied, lightly caramelish malt character and then a crispy dry, grapefruitish bitterness. A decent IPA. 170307 jerohen (2380) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2007
On draft at pier 59 (6.2% ABV). Hazy dark golden coloured. Floral aroma. Very hoppy, but not too much. Bitter finish. Very nice brew.

Poured a clear to cloudy orange with a bumpy head. Aroma of ruby grapefruit, orange, maybe some peachiness, floral piney hops. Grapefruit and fruitstripe gum and dry hoppy flavor, with a very resiny sassafras finish which lingers. Local for me so very fresh tasting. Lighter than most other IPAs and very drinkable, though I can understand IPA fanatics complaining about the overall lightness and fruitiness. Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Pour is golden amber with a thin sticky off white head...grapefruit and pine nose...taste is thin with light notes of garbage... Schroppfy (2362) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2006
Tap at David Copperfield’s in the company of Eyedrinkale and mkobes. Very nice bitter IPA, some malt (sugary) sweetness, good body (kind of hefty, actually). Very fresh (of course, given the location). I want more breadiness to the malt here, but hte hopping is very nice, even with a touch of bitter, leafy greens. wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2006
Tap at Westside Brewing in NY. Poured golden with a thick off white head. Hints of citrus, graitfruit and caramel were in the aroma. Solid taste but some descent pine and resiny notes. The finish was a little too bitter for my taste though. Average palate. Could have used a bit more body. Overall a good IPA that I would have again. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2006
Pours a mostly clear light amber/copper with a nice fluffy white head and good lacing. Aroma is pretty abundant with lots of citrus hops, some pine, and a bit of tea. Very light on the malt all the way through which is nice. Hops really come through in the flavor and in the bitterness in the end. I was surprised by how well made this one was. A great american IPA.
