COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Enter, if you will, all the glorious aromatic complexity of the hop. This big, bold IPAs intense multi-hop kick gets a subtle dose of restraint from select Crystal and Carastan malts. For discriminating hop heads.

Beautiful reddish amber with a frothy head. Grapefruit, citrus, and floral aromasVrisp acidity balanced by firm malt with a dry bitter finish. Great IPA.

Strykzone (7018) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Thanks Hayduke! The foam on this 12 oz. bottle perfectly fits into my pint glass. The beer is caramel colored with a bit of effervescent glowing. That head is nice and thick with a light tan hue. Very nice lacing. A very nice aroma of caramel, pine, and bread. Flavor begins with a tart grapefruit bitterness. That settles a bit and nice smooth caramel appears. More complex fruit follows. There is a bit of graham cracker, nice spice. That bitterness remained to the end. Feel is a bit thin. A very nice IPA.

BVery (9973) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap. Pours a semi-murky amber / orange with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus and a touch of sweatsock. Taste is pine hop, earthy, a touch of caramel, and pretty well balanced. Nice brew.

22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Pours a dark amber with a few chocolate highlights...fair head, spotted lacing. Aroma is of bright citrus hops and slightly dank grapefruit with a touch of piney resin and earthy undertones. Smooth bittering compliments the fairly hefty malt base...sweet toffee-like consistency is balanced well with smooth bittering and ample carbonation...leaving a well-deserved numbing sensation on the tongue and a fairly bitter finish. A bit darker than most IPAs it reminds me more of a fairly strong American Amber Ale. Very good.

muteprint (176) - Olympia, Washington, USA - SEP 3, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a darker than expected cloudy amber orange with a small white head. The taste is full of bitter followed by bitter and ending with bitter. Good beer but doesnt necessarily outshine any of the many other quite good west coast IPAs.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Amber orange pour with a white head. Nose is mostly sweet caramel with some citrus. Moderate, slightly sticky body with a fair amount of breadiness and caramel/toffee sweetness, finishing out with mild resin, tangerine, and grapefruit citrus. This makes a decent inexpensive six pack, if a bit sweeter than I like with a pretty subdued hop bill.

mybrainhurts (394) - North Dakota, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Aroma of grapefruit, pine needles, and floral arrangement. Toasted bready malts, toffee, citrus fruits, and a hint of burnt caramel. juicy, hopped finish that lingers on and on. Glad to finally see this brewer up in my area!

Amber color, off white head. Aroma of damp grass and hay. Taste is bitter butterscotch. Decent.
