COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A prototype IPA which features a huge malt profile from Maris Otter malt as a backbone, and massive amounts of Cascade & Amarillo hops. The hop flavour and aroma are huge as well as the hop bite. This is not a beer for those afraid of character.

First thoughts...nice beer. Faint citrus coming from the creamy 1/2 inch head. Maybe a bit earthy if that makes any sense. Pours a hazy orange/brown amalgamation.More of an English style IPA as opposed to American as their is a strong malt presence too. Definitely worth trying.

Pours a clear amber with a big off white head that dissipates quickly but leaves lots of nice sticky lace. Aroma is rather weak for an ipa, smells of tangerine and malts. Taste is malts with a light bitterness up front and finishes with a light tangerine taste. Overall its too thin.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle via trade with Andrew - thanks! Kind of a murky dirty orange pour with a small clingy head. Aroma isnt all that pleasant - a bit of wet fall leaves and a little cardboard. Tastes a little better than it smells, with mild bitterness. Just okay, but I appreciate the tick, Andrew!

Bottle shared by GT2. Medium hazy orange amber with a small sudsy off white head. Smells a thousand years old. Carboard, paper, dusty yeast. Welcome to my sink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear dark copper colour with small white head and big lasting lace. Smell is minimal im getting a light tangerine smell possibly something else but I cant quite separate it. Taste is mostly bitterness from hops without much flavoring hops and light malt finish. Nice clean easy drinking ipa, definitely more of an English ipa. Good beer but nothing makes it stand out.

Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks! Nice deep clear amber color, thick cream colored headwith good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of leaves, subtle pine, caramel. Taste is bitter grass and black pepper.

355mL thanks to my big sister Jenn! Clear, deep amber pour. Smaller, sheen, buttermilk head. Nose is toffee and maple. Taste is very soapy, small maple and toffee. Chalky, minerally palate. Soapy, nutty finish.

This is a decent IPA. Looks, smells, and tastes good, but nothing super special.

Sampled at the GCBF. Quite hazy, nose has no bitterness or tartness whatsover, only sweet tangerine and malt. Flavour is a tad more bitter and the fruit comes through. A very average IPA, offers nothing special; if you take the average balance of bittering and aroma hops, this is slightly tipped toward bittering, but its not particularly strong.
