COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with the finest organic malts and hops, our IPA features a bright-minted copper color and a crisp, yet smooth hop bitterness. Pale and crystal malts come through with a malty caramel sweetness, balanced with aggressively clean burst of fresh hop flavor in the middle palate without lingering bitter astringency. A strong floral and citrus character from generous dryhopping blends with strawberry esters from our house yeast strain for an inviting and satiating aroma.

aroma was a mix of floral and piney hops. the pour was well... interesting. mostly foam, so I was concerned the bottle was infected, but it seemed to smell and even taste OK. flavor was muted hops and just a bit of caramel malt. certified organic may be important to some, but Ill take anyone elses IPA over this.

Nice pour, foamy white head. Smooth and well balanced with noticeable malts. Tastes like a brewery fermentation room smells. Mild bitterness for an IPA.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2007
(Bottle) Organic beer blind tasting at Brouwerss in Seattle, March 3, 2007. White head and deep orange body. Nose of milky, eggy tones with a pine hopped front. Tart pine hops mellows into a medicinal maltedness in the flavours finish. Okay.

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Golden orange with a coarse head and a fine lace, both white. Medium-bodied, with faint citrus aroma and taste. Moderately hopped for an IPA. A very good organic IPA - surprising in fact. Ive been unimpressed with organic IPAs in the past.

DocLock (10085) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Bottle from Saarlander via Mystery Swap 2.0. Turbid deep orangy pour with 2-finger off-white head and great, long-lasting lacing. The aroma is big tangerine, pineapple, mango, orange marmalade, hops, and bready malt. Complex, well balanced palate, with flavor notes of breadt caramel malt, tangerine, orange zest, pineapple, and some berry finishing notes. I liked this one a lot.

hopdog (11774) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2007
12oz bottle acquired in trade (Myster Swap v2) from Saarlander (thanks!). This one poured all head - I recieved it in the mail this morning, but its been sitting in the fridge for over 9 hours. Settled down into a medium and cloudy amber color. Aromas of floral, husky, and citrus. Tastes of oranges, light caramel, grass, with a grapefruit bitter finish. Medium bitter finish.

NikonTheDog (16) - Hawaii, USA - FEB 6, 2007
From bottle. Orange/amber hue with a seemingly blended sweet and lightly acidic flavor. A medium body, enjoyable beer. Always a plus when this can come in an organic package.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2007
Copper pour, some floaties, decent, lasting head. Lots of floral, with some bready aftertaste, hops are subdued, alcohol is well hidden, abit mild, but pretty well rounded, enjoyable drink!

Aurelius (5129) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2007
Dark syrup and fruit aroma with overtones of toasted/sugared coconut. Just foggy, but mostly clear medium brown-red, big clingy and spongy head, California potato-masher micro bottle, twistoff. Quickly-dissipating chainmail foam which coats the side of the glass when you swirl it -- cool effect. Nicely hopped, good balance. Moderately sweet, toasted sunflower/sesame/pumpkin seed taste over the pale malts. Leaning viscous, hearty carbonation, finishes out with a growing orange pith bitter.
