On tap at Fuel DC. Orange bold body with medium head. Nose is hoppy and citrus. Tate is clean hops, citrus, oranges, caramel. Nice crisp and prickly texture. Hammy notes. Well done.

Clear golden-yellow body, medium sized off-white head, spotty lacing. Perfumey citrus, assorted grainy malts, medium bodied, slightly sweet in the finish, mellow bitterness.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a crystal-clear golden color. This produces lots of head, about three fingers high, and shaded barely off-white. It fades to about one finger in a short time, featuring a decently frothy texture. Nice sheets of lacing are left behind. S: I note a lot of Simcoe hops, providing mango, melon, pine, and catty notes. Biscuity malt comes out the more it warms up. A good aroma, not an amazing one. T: This opens with slight mango and melon notes. Touches of biscuity malt fills out the middle, before it finishes with a moderate hop bitterness, both piny and herbal. The back end in particular offers a strange grassy bitterness to it; this quality is probably why I dont like this more. M: Good crispness, but a bit heavy in texture. This would be quite drinkable if the herbal finish didnt rub me the wrong way. Carbonation is non-intrusive. O: While Im thankful to see a relatively local IPA hit the market, it just cant compete with the heavy hitters in the style. Theres too much weird bitterness for me to love this. Not horrible, but I wouldnt seek out again.

Huh, cant believe I havent rated this one yet. Oh well. Pours gold with a big fluffy white head, heavy lacing. Big, grassy hops aroma. Nice, assertive bitterness that isnt overwhelming. Well-balanced sticky and dry finish. Great, solid west coast style from the mountains in the east!

Brought up to NH by my brother thanks! Drank out of the bottle. Smell is malty with a bit of grapefruit. Taste pretty much follows, but the hop bitterness is intense. A bit of resin and pine finishes it off. Dry finish. Solid IPA.

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear golden-orange color with a thin off-white head. Mild lacing. Aroma is a pungent lemon-lime hoppiness that slightly stings the nostrils. Flavor is quite bitter, with a slight citrusy feel. Palate is light to medium with a lasting bitter finish. Tasty, but not my favorite IPA by any means.

Copper color and quick white head. Grapefruit citrus bitter flavor. Pine aroma. Good body and balance.

This one poured a light orange color with a white head. Aroma was citrusy and grassy hops with light caramel in the background. Flavor was similar, a bit more malty than I was expecting from the aroma. OK.

Solid hop aroma and flavor. Maltiness matched to hop flavor. Even sweet/dry balance. A smooth IPA.

What a great IPA. Pours a light Amber or a dark yellow. Delicious hoppy flavor with a sharp aftertaste.
