Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of jleblanc. Slightly hazy golden with an off-white head. Fresh piney, citrusy and even peachy hops in the nose. Medium body, lovely sweet fruitiness. Mouthdrying and almost astringent hop finish. 150311 Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2011
On tap. Clear, reddish gold pour with a thin white head that left big rings along the glass. An expectedly floral hop aroma is the big draw here. Citrus undertones with orange and grapefruit. Flavor is pleasantly bitter. A little orange sweetness, but light and bitter enough to differentiate this from a big malty DIPA. Finish has a linger citrus hop dryness. Palate is crisp, on the lighter side of medium bodied. Delicious, and quite quaffable to boot. RIght up there with Celebration and Nugget Nectar as my favorite winter/spring IPAs. empirestout (13) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2011
Wow. Aroma explodes in sweet, floral, delicate hops. Pillowy white head atop a light golden orange brew. Taste is immediately honeyish and malty, notes of lemon, grapefruit, hay, and buttery smooth. Malty taste is followed by the dominant, yet somehow balanced, hop character. Like a basket of fresh-picked flowers. Amazing. Delicate, balanced, complex, intricate, awesome. Exactly what you look for in an IPA. Finish is long, and memorable. It’s like taking a walk through the fields in spring. willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2011
20110301 12oz bottle from Jersey City Buy Rite. After a spate of pretty bad bottles tonight, I decided to go for the gusto. This one I haven’t had in a year or so and wasn’t sure I recalled loving it. Well, I do now. Hazed dark golden with streaking beige head. Aroma is a kick in the pants with dank, herby hops. Plenty pissy and even some lingering cattiness that outlasts the amazing, almost challenging, astringency. Reminds of Double Trouble, yet much more affordable and also more drinkable thanks to the reasonable ABV. Stupid of me to not have bought more of this in NJ over the weekend, however I think I have found a reason to fire up the kegerator. fear025 (213) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Aroma:Smells amazing. Hops, citrus, grapefruit, and lemon.
Appearance:Golden in color, huge white fluffy head.
Taste:Lots of grapefruit and citrus. Hoppy bitterness and sweet malt. It tastes a little dank, like a wet hopped ale.
Palate:Light in body, good carbonation.
Overall:Even though it sat in my cellar longer than it should have (3 months), the hops held up really well. What a fantastic IPA.

Really nice! Orange amber. Big floral and citrus hops - a punch of them with a squeeze of mandarin. Nice and hop-forward, but still smooth. Great brew. SBor02 (67) - Delaware, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Flower Power pours a hazy orange with white head. There is an earthy flowery aroma and a mellow bitter and sweet taste. This is a smooth beer that is a pleasure to drink throughout the year. drfabulous (8224) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - FEB 12, 2011
12 ounce thanks to murphym45. Honey. Hops. Nice floral aroma. Very good IPA. Tasty. TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 11, 2011
enjoyed this beer with a Russia who had never had an IPA before and glad I chose it as a selection for both of us because it is a great example of the style. Light orange clear appearance with under a finger white head that faded. Aroma was a strong peach with some orange and just a bit of sweetness that was malt. A very well balanced bitterness to sweetness. Near perfect American IPA
