COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA has an Intense hop aroma and strong malt body, followed by a smooth clean finish. Pacific Northwest malted barley with hops from the fields of Yakima have come together to create this IPA that is very hoppy but very balanced with complex malt flavors. The IPA is best served cool, not ice cold so as not to subdue the hop aroma. The perfect beer for any day.

[Bottle] shared by Skyview. Pours a hazy caramel with a small off white head. Aroma is mostly biscuity malt with a touch of floral hops and a bit of caramel. Flavor is subdued floral and a touch of citric hops, with more malts. This probably would have been much better fresh, as most of the hops had dissipated.

Thanks to Skyview for sharing this one. Slightly hazy brownish pour with a whitish head. Aroma of light malt and strong hop profiles. Taste is similar to the aroma with a little less malt. Very solid.

badgerben (5043) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Thanks to Skyview. Copper color with no head. Aroma of biscuit and a bit of citrus. Much the same in the flavor. Some more floral hop notes than citrus and pine. Caramelly. Definitely more like a strong amber after some aging, but quite nice.

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Picked up a 2007 vintage single 22-oz bomber from Bottleworks in Seattle, WA. Pours a hazy brown amber brew with an average off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma of powdered caramel malt, some grapefruit, tangerines, a hint of orange zest and some biscuit. Taste is medium bodied, citrusy, with flavors of aged caramel malt, some grapefruit, orange zest and mild herbs. Finish has a nice citrus bitterness that slowly disappears. The extra year aging did some nice work on this IPA.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2009 wild and hoppy, like it was made in some cabin up in northern idaho. one of my favorite ipas flavors are all over the place, sweet, bitter, pungent and a very resiny finish.

omhper (24620) - Tyres, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2009
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear amber, rocky head. Striking perfumy grapefruity aroma with doughy malt underneath. Medium sweet with really solid makty body. Chewy and potent with massive hop rate and bitterness. Very well crafted IPA on the heavier side of the spectre.

Svesse (8357) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2009
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 22 Jan 2009) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Hoppy, fruity nose with pine needles, resin, orange peel and grapefruit. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, caramel and pine needles. Fresh bitterness, but not overwhelmingly bitter. Fairly dry. Medium mouthfeel. Very tasty and nice beer.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2009
Chalky character underlies the cereal malt sweetness and citrusy, spicy, pine hop nose. Brilliantly clear copper body is topped by a low but lasting white head that coats the sides of the glass with sudsy lacing. Malt character is a bit lost in the very dry flavour. Mineral, chalky flavour underlies the cirus pine hop flavour. Moderate bitterness and some sweetness in the finish. Dry medium body with decent effervescence that engages the tongue. Snifter. Cellar temperature. Bottle. Bottleworks. Aug-08.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours cloudy gold, white head. Aroma is very malty with caramel, almost cloying, some hops. Flavor is hoppy, malty, doughy with some lingering citrus and bitterness.

jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2008
pours a copper/amber with a big head, nice lacing... lots of citrus aroma, mostly grapefruit... A bit of pine in the taste, not as much grapefruit as in the nose... The hops seem muddled a bit, it doesnt have the crispness and balanced complexity of the top notch IPAs... I dont experience the "complex malt flavors" i was promised... OK, but many are better...
