On tap in a snifter. The aroma is quite fruity and there a big hint of alcohol. The flavor is very bitter of course with a certain tang that really reminds me of extract homebrewing - possibly some oxidation. Also I think there may be some diacetyl.

THOUGHTS: Well balance. Lots of great flavors and aroma, but they didn’t seem to meld together as well as they could. This rating was my 795th rating in three full years being a member of RateBeer. Woohoo. I’m hoping to reach beer god status in my fourth year. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark orangey amber with reddish-orange highlights and an average, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma was heavy caramel malt, heavy orangey citrus hops, and light alcohol. The initial flavor was rather sweet, bitter and acidic; while the finish was very sweet, rather bitter and acidic with a long duration. There was caramel, sugar water, ruby-red grapefruit, resinous hops, a little alcohol, orangey hops and a bit of metallic hops. The slightly more than medium body was a bit syrupy and then rather dry with rather fizzy carbonation and a dry, lightly alcoholic, lightly astringent and slightly metallic finish.

Hazy amber pour with a slight offwhite head. Aroma is slightly perfumed, with some floral hoping and a bit of sweet caramel malt. Flavor is sweet and fruity hoppy, rather drinkable with a slight alcohol warmth. Not spectacular but pretty good.

22 oz. bottle via trade with smith4498 - Pours a hazy amber color with a 2/3 finger thick off white head. Aroma is floral and herbal hops with a touch of soap. Very light lacing. Flavor is herbal and pine hops with a nice bit of lightly sweetened malt to balance in out. No lingering astringent aftertaste. Medium body. A pleasant, very drinkable IPA. Thanks Jason.

A Mes rate. Bottle at LCRBM #5.
Hazy amber with a really good off white head. An excellent double IPA. Big aromatic hoppage with some great chewy caramel malty notes. Perfumed bitterness, lovely sweet alcohol. Great stuff.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Dark cloudy amber pour with a big off-white head. Citrus hops, a little sweet aroma. Flavor is predictably big on hops, floral notes, a little sweet at the end. Consistency is a little thick. Good stuff.

pours a fiery copper with a massive white head. aroma is grapefruit, malt, citrus, and other juicy fruits. drinks with bitter citrus and nice rich malt up front with fruit, malt, caramel, and a bit of spice to finish. very tasty when fresh.

A rather enjoyable IIPA from Shipyard, and clearly a notch above their b-wine. The beer pours out a clear golden/amber body with a rather large creamy beige head. Aroma is decidedly grapefruits but there’s also enough biscuity/caramel malts to really notice. The alcohol also asserts itself in the aroma. The flavor is mostly sweet for a IIPA. Lots of residual sugars left behind it seems. Grapefruit keeps things in check with the style department and some floral notes really escape, which was nice. Finish is hot with alcohol with a tight bitterness. Pretty nice.
