12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/amber with a thick, lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy/spicy hops, some light fruit, and caramel and nutty malts. The hops are strong in this IPA, but the hops provide a perfect balance. Average texture. A really good IPA. Frank (4236) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2011
A thick and earthy IPA. Ddep orange with a huge head and lots of lace. Pungent pine and cut grass in the nose. Full bodied with medium carbonation. I tend to like my IPA more on the drinkable side but this is complex and satisfying. scottw86 (1179) - Maryland, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Poured a nice color with a medium sized head. Aroma is hoppy with some earthy notes. taste is a little thin with hops. Not as much hop flavor as I hoped for. Still a solid IPA. stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Pours a light brown with tons of sediment, kind of off-putting. Taste is a light citrus hit, Hoppy without being overly bitter. Good beer from a brewery I never heard of. Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2011
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Amber colour with brief, beige head. Fruity, hoppy nose with grapefruit, orange peel and hints of pine needles. Hoppy, fruity taste with notes of grapefruit, crystal malt, pine needles and a dry finish with a generous piney/citric bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Nice and tasty.

Dissappointed in this beer, honey colored fair head and some lacing, but while balanced a bit thin and an earthy taste. rahmdog (55) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 14, 2011
A good IPA that balances between the traditional and the newer American IPAs on steroids. Granted those juiced up ones are some of my favorites but this is a welcome change of pace for me. Everything about the beer is pleasant from the unfiltered copper body to the flowery hop aroma and mouth feel. This is a solid IPA that owns up to its Nantucket roots.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy light tea color with a small off white head that quickly diminishes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2011
The aroma is subdued - some sweet (almost nutty) caramel malt with a little melon and some grassy hops.
The flavor is off to me - a little sweet caramel malt and a lot of metallic hops that leave a tarry aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and kind of watery.
Overall, it’s got a good amount of bitterness, but the flavors taste very off to me.
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-amber color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was bitter with strong floral hops followed by light pine and caramel. The flavor was strong floral, fruity and resiny hops and was intensely bitter with undertones of bread and caramel. The finish was long, rough and hoppy. Medium body. Solid. bbbeer (880) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Copper orange with small head. Nice aroma of mainly citrus hops and faint malt. Medium body, no real alcohol to speak of. Flavor is again citrus hops, nicely bitter but not overwhelming and nice balance to allow repeated drinking. Just about exactly what an IPA should be.
