Poured a hazy copper color with a small cream colored head. Aroma of caramel, sweet fruity malt, hops, and a touch of alcohol. A nice and pretty balanced mixture of caramel, piney hops, and alcohol. Nice bitterness on a sweet finish.

Pours a bronze copperish color with a beige creamy head. Smells of pine needles and hops. At first sip, I thought this was a Victory Hop Devil, as the two beers are very similar in color and taste. Tastes citrusy, with an abundance of hops and pines in the flavor. Overall, an excellent IPA.

A nice malty IPA. Thats right, with alll the great Cascades in here, it was the roasted malt that made this a great beer. Darker than a normal IPA, and probably not 100% true to the style, but I loved this ale.

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Pours amber with a thin head that stays. Aroma is citrus hops and a moderate deep caramel maltiness. Flavor is piney, citrusy hops and a caramel malt. I dont know if its a bad bottle or a common characteristic but I am tasting a cardboard.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Medium amber, nice head. Big citric grapefruit and pine nose, pleasant. Flavor matched, pine resin and grapefruit, with a balancing toasty, at times roasty malt. Good stuff.

bottle: amber color, white head that diminishes quickly. A very hoppy aroma. This is a very nice IPA with a strong hop taste from start to finish. The initial taste of the hops is strong and finishes slightly sweet, but dominated by the hops. Never could tell it was 7.8% ABV

Pours dark amber/red with a two-finger head that doesnt stick around. A bit of lacing. Excellent hop aroma, more floral than citrus and pine, which is odd for an American IPA. The pine and citrus is still there, though. The hops dominate the flavor from start to finish but are backed by a nice malt profile. The flavor has some of the floral qualities of the aroma, making it a bit different from a lot of other IPAs. Good stuff.

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2005
On draught at State College 8th Annual Festival. Nice hoppy aroma. Fruity with grapefruit, sugar, resin, orange peel and other citrus. Clear amber gold with foamy off-white lacing head. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth and sweet throughout, nice maltiness and caramel to start. Big hops profile from mid taste through finish and beyond. Floral, bitter yet surprisingly refreshing. After is hoppy and just a bit sweet. Nice beer to end on.

Bottle. My first taste of this came at the Penn brewing Microbrew fest, but my palate was destroyed, so I grabbed another bottle at Ds just to make sure that I liked it as much as I originally thought. I did. Nice clear copper color but not much head. Decent lace. Nose is malty along with roasted toasty nose and underlying pineapple. Also some vegetation smell here from the hops. Flavor is immediate bittter into hop flavors and then into the sweet malt, followed by toasted malts... this one actually gets a little sweet. It tastes a lot like the DFH 60 minute IPA with that roasted toasty quality. A little too light in the body for a top notch rating, but a fine beer nonetheless.

12oz. bottle. Clear, dark amber color with a medium sized off white head. Nice malty aroma with some citrus hops and a bit of caramel. Mildly sweet malt flavor with some caramel and a good citrus hop finish.
