Suprising taste, as southern tier usually comes with the unexpected. Very grassy taste, that is a tad too bitter. Could be a little more floral, but would buy again. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2007
Pours a clear copper color with a thick white head. Good aroma of spicy and citrusy hops. Good flavor of citrusy hops with biscuity malt and a bitter finish. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and gentle carbonation. Nicely done and well balanced. jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2007
Orange/copper pour, with a small, frothy, off-white head. Mostly grapefruit aroma, with a hint of caramel malt. Flavor is similar to the aroma, but a bit maltier than expected, and just a hint of nuttiness. Palate is medium. a bit resiny, grassy, and bitter. Pretty solid ipa, and fairly balanced, but nothing really stands out Jayb0 (1215) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2007
A very solid IPA. Stand out a bit in the very big and fresh hop aroma while not being overwhelming or overly bitter in the mouth. RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2007
12oz bottle via trade with Ty5592. Aroma: Pleasant pine and floral, with a light orange/citrus/ Some Light caramel and malt. Appearance: Amber in color and clear. Off-white head was full and foamy with good retention. Good lacing. Flavor: Some light caramel and maltiness up front with a light honey note. Pine, floral, and citrus hops with a strong grassiness into the finish. Dry finish. Light bitterness was pleasant and didn’t linger too long. Palate: Medium-light bodied. Moderate carbonation. Overall: A drinkable and enjoyable IPA, but lacking anything to separate it from the competitors.

This beer starts with the hoppy flavor of most IPA’s but continues with a sweet, floral taste. The finish is not as hoppy as most similar beers and in my opinion could use more hops. Even though it is not a very hoppy IPA, I think it is well done. ryan (3185) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JAN 17, 2007
lightly hazey, amber body with medium sized, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is farily malty, lots of caramel, brewad and toffee, some grapefruit and floral hops. The flavor is fairly sweet, lots of toffee, tea, some citrus hops. Medium body, soft and smooth. This is a very lightly hopped IPA, i wonder how old this bottle is. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2007 on tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Deep amber orange in color with nice 2 finger head. Big hop nose with citrus presence. Medium bodied & a well crafted IPA. one of the better East coast IPA’s out there. nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Bottle. Dark amber color with a foamy, off-white head. Nice, full hop aroma with a good floral background. Also some citrus in there (limes) and a bit of yeast. Decent flavor also, really chewy, but not as good as the aroma. Really well balanced, I would say, but nothing fantastic. Body is a bit thin, but there is a nice full bitter finish. I’m pleasantly suprised. sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Bottle. Clear orange/copper with a big craggy off-white head, leaving striped and patchy lacing. Sweet aromas of caramel and orangey hops. Flavor of caramel and toffee malts infused with citrus and grassy hops. An interesting red apple peel note as well. Seems fruitier than other IPAs. Nice spicy finish. Pretty good.
