COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hi.P.A. is a medium-bodied groove with a fresh and fruitful nose of tympanic temptation. It begins and ends with a big hop bite that is itself forever balanced on the brink by a steady rhythm of malt. Dry-hopped for extra quenching in the face of heat and beat, its an ideal accompaniment to chilling out, turning inward or sailing onward through the music of the night toward the dawn of the mind. Its the liquid way to say be here now lest you never come this way again.

hints of an orange cascade of decadent colors flashing in different directions rushed the eyes as this beer is poured. down the hatch is a rush of a beautifully mixed brew of hops and precise bitterness that leaves you wanting no less of a awesome beer. great taste for the mountaineer resting from his long and extended adventure.

Pours clear orange color body with a few bubbles but not much for head. Aroma is citrus and piney hops. Nice hoppy flavor. A little weighted but not bad. The finish is great!! Overall, nothing really special.

Also part of a summer sampler this bottle offers a beautiful label by Scott Mouse. This was my favorite of the sampler. Not overwhelming in the use of hops the bite comes across milder than what you would have expected. Very delicious and very much enjoyed.

3/4 pint bottle. Pours out a hazy amber. Which has been said before, so its true. Took a whiff, hey there hops hows it goin? It really is light on the malt but not so bad. Could benefit from a little more malt, Ill agree but Id be a liar if i said I wouldnt drink a few of these now and then.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 22, 2005
On tap. Hazy amber orange color with a medium white head. Citrus and pine aroma, hoppy. Over this beer is out of balance, sticky hop syrup and layers of pine tar. Unpleasant bitter finish, light on the malt as well. Overhopped, undermalted.

Draught at brewery. Yellow, semi-hazy, with a smalll white head. Smells like hops, imagind that--citrus, pine, and grass. The flavor is a little disappointing (not too disapointing). The malt is invisible because of the hop content. Needs more malt to handle the hop content--I think it would be good with an ABV of over 7.5.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Bottle: pours a dark yellow, maybe a light orange. Clear. Small white head. Mild herbal hop aroma. Flavor is mildly hoppy, bitter finish. Light citrus. Ill pass next time.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2005
This is not a beer that will blow your mind. In fact, after the Pelican IPA I had prior, I was like, whoa, what is this, Genny Lite? However, after a few crackers, I came to enjoy the subtle simplicity of this summertime brew. Very mild aroma. Light golden in color. Citric tangy flavor with a quick, pleasant, juicy finish. Enjoyable, yes. outstanding, well

This is a ok IPA. Hoppy, citric, and bitter. Finishes chewy, crisp, and dry.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2005
Very light in color for an IPA- kinda similar to stone I guess. Light copper with low carbonation and thin head, but good lacing. Different in aroma from a lot of IPA’s. Somewhat spicy- slightly piney, with herbal and floral hints. Not nearly as much citrus and grapefruit as expected. Mouthfeel is good but the flavor was slightly bland especially for a 6.8% beer. Moderate hop profile that seemed somewhat subdued. Maybe this would be better if I had it fresh on tap somewhere. Palate was slightly resiny and had a good bitterness in the finish. Pretty decent and somewhat different from most other IPA’s but nothing that special.
