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.

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.

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!

Bottle, Embarcadero Market, SF. Its always interesting how different IPAs can be. After drinking the pale beast that is Racer 5, this is a dark amber caramelly beer, that looks beautifully rich. Still has that fresh hop hit, which, though, appears more in the taste than in the aroma, which is almost subdued in comparison. When you get the aroma, it is more ripe fruit than citrus, loads of depth and ever so slightly vineous. Peaches and cream creep in later on and theres a gorgeous tang that coats the tongue and throat. It reminds of a Christmas/Old Ale at times. This is an all round beer that covers so many bases and gave me one of the biggest beer buzzes for a long time. Absolutely love it......

joet (2596) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
tangy, full aroma, looks deep golden tannish with off white foam, herbal, piney, round feel, bitter sweet. "over balanced". way too much sugar. fairly new too.

Orange liquid, thick white head. Malty and hoppy aroma, pine mostly. Bitter taste, bit thin though. Nose was best part

blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 17, 2010
bottle I believe came as a recent extra poured a clear amber in color with a light tan head. aroma has bitter hops, pines, citrus, and caramel. mouth feel is good with plenty of carbonation. flavor has a medium bitterness, resins, pines, caramel sweetness, and a nice lingering finish. this is dialed in pretty well and was a nice surprise.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2010
Bottle poured a hazy copper with a large lasting amber head. Aromas of grapefruit and orange, light pine and some carmel. Palate was medium bodied and lightly resiny. Flavours of grapefruit rind, mild orange, some piney notes and mellow carmel with a lingering bitter finish.

DalzAle (2030) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Bottle. Clear dark orange pour, plenty of carbonation and a malty hop aroma. Flavor is bitter orange, hops, tons of malt, sweet and syrupy sugar and finished with a dry bitter liquer aftertaste. I bought this because it was suggested to be better than bells 2 hearted. Do I think so? No. However it is a very well done beer, but just not what I personally look for in an IPA.
