clear amber pour with small white head. huge florals in the nose...that being said, i am expecting some intense bitterness in the mouth. a touch of malt come across in the aroma as well. hugely fresh flavor...massive perfume and flower petals...drying finish. crisp, fresh

Bottle. Pours light and clear for an IPA. Tastes nice and hoppy with some grapefruit and pine and a little skunkyness to it. Pretty enjoyable but would like to see it a little bolder.

p1meatloaf (256) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - MAR 6, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2011 Aroma is hoppy but not too strong. Appearance is golden yellow taste is glorious amounts of hops that is easier to drink than a double IPA but has a strong bitterness that is refreshing Palate is good. bitterness doesnt linger too long. For an ipa i can buy literally almost anywhere in the western USA, it is darn good.

500ml bottle sample. Pours a beautiful golden colour with lovely white head and clumpy/ pillowy lace. Aroma was sweet, piney, crisp refreshing. Taste was so nice and bitter, sweet piney. Just delicious.

here is simcoe in this? Average pale ale, to call this an ipa would be false. Not hoppy enough.

Bottle. Light copper color, medium body with citrus and spruce aroma and average carbonation. Just the right amount of bitterness.

nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Bomber.Orange gold pour, frothy white head. Aromas of grain(light roasted corn, rye), grassy/earthy hops, a bit of resin and pine. Flavors bitter, herbal, malty, with a light sweetness. Medium bodied, malty(a tinge roasty even) throughout, bitter notes midway, with a long dry/malty/bitter finish. The drink by date was June 11, so I imagine this was fairly fresh, no notice of stale hops. Overall, pretty good well balanced bitter beer... the finishing notes seem to intensify with each sip which is pretty satisfying and refreshing. By no means is this a west coast style IPA or the greatest hop fixation ever, but to try a new IPA at the end of a long day out of town on work and have it taste good is sometimes all you really need.

viking1212 (10) - Sparks, Nevada, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Citrusy, resiny, kind of catty. Very clear, light copper, foam dissipates pretty quickly. Fairly thin bodied, not much depth. Not a great IPA.
