Although this beer is not well known throughout the world (or even the United States for that matter), I find myself using this beer as a standard for what I compare all other IPAs to. I am not kidding. This is my epitome of a good IPA. It is floral, smooth, delicious, only slightly bitter, and simply an embodiment of the flavor of fresh hops. Are there hoppier beers out there? Yes. Are there better single IPAs? No. There really aren?t. It is the only beer I?ve ever had that is excessively hoppy without being excessively bitter or "sticky". This IPA is a work of art. phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - DEC 21, 2011
Hazy orange pour with a small White head. Aroma is full of sweet hop aromas. Sweet orange, english winegums, tropical fruits, tangerine, lots of nice fruitiness, very unique. Taste strikes mÃ© as being slightly sour, which is very unique, not as in infected but in the lines of astringent hoppy citrus notes. Surprisingly light bodied and very drinkable. Very nice IPA.

From trade with nbutler11 . Pours hazy golden amber with off white head. Aroma is rather grassy hops, sweet peach, orange, some bready notes, weak pine, citrus, some malts behind and light tropical notes. Taste is clean crispy hops, bright citrus fruits, grass, orange, peach, grapefruit, weak pine leading to a bitter end. Very straight and good! BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2011
On tap at brewpub. A smooth drinking India Pale Ale. Nice balance. Some citrus and pine flavors with malty caramel in the background. Sharp finish but lacking a bitter kick. Tasty but average. Swillbur (62) - Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2011
One of my favorite local brews. Nice even balanced IPA, really nice on hot AZ days. arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Pours an orange color with a thick white head. Aroma is resin, floral hops, and malt. The taste is orange peel, resiny hops, pine, and a good malt backbone. Excellent IPA! smith4498 (3647) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2011
12 oz can from a trade with cbkschubert. Aromas of grapefruit and pine. Flavors of grapefruit, oranges and some bready malts. Medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Craig.
