COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our favorite styles, this ale is a hop explosion. Light in color, heavily hopped in the kettle as well as conditioned with several unique hop varieties. This creates a beautiful floral/citrusy nose which is balanced well by a smooth and full finish.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2012
12oz bottle with no date on the bottle, so Im not sure how old this is. Picked it up on a recent trip to the sconsin. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear pale orange with a moderately thick white head on top. Big citrusy nose that is inviting me to partake. Orange, lemon, floral tones - nice refreshing nose. The mouth is crisp, yet creamy. A little sharp, but smooth on the back end. Nice big citrus flavors greet me with sweet tangerine, orange rind, lemon zest. Bitterness is moderate and accessible. This is a great IPA for novices and geeks alike. I wasnt expecting a lot, but this surprised me. I would grab this again for sure.

Bottle. Orange caramel malt and orange peel aroma. Slightly hazy golden yellow with moderate head. Moderately sweet orange, pineapple, caramel malt, and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Decent body.

Pours slightly hazy, light copper, modest lacing. More aromatic than most... stone fruit (apricot/peach) and biscuit. Flavor follows the aroma, with yeast addition, and a peppery, resin finish. Palate has subtle smooth body. Overall, this had a lot subtle notes going on. The yeast and body remind me of a farmhouse ale, as do some of the subtle flavor notes. Its not a typical IPA, but its s very good beer. (Note: this bottle may be slightly passed its optimum consumption date.)

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured slightly hazy, golden, small off white head, and some lacing. Aroma of caramel, citrus fruit and pine notes. Taste is bitter and hoppy, some fruit notes and some malty hints in the background. Nice and easy to drink; very enjoyable.

I am in no "rush" to get to this "river" of squalid inpertinence. It is not like like snuffing a bowl of cat piss...but not really that different. Luckily it has alcohol, which is a plus. The taste is a minus.

On tap at Orchids. Not a lot of aroma, but the taste makes up for it. Nice lingering bitterness. Goes well with spicy Chinese food.
