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. DeaconBluez (4) - Alabama, USA - JAN 13, 2007 does not count
pours a nice deep amber color. head is of an off white color. very citusy and piney smell. hints of biscuits and caramels. taste is of sweet malts that gives way to fruity hops. the taste is really well balanced. mouthfeel is somewhat creamy. just the right amount of carbonation. this is an great ipa. i would love to get a sixer of this. would make for a pretty good session beer.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2007 Pours a clear orange with a huge head. Good lacing. Aroma of earth and pine hops, with a certain astringency. Taste has balancing sweet maltiness. A little apricot. Very good IPA. Nephilium (1818) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2006
A great session IPA. Dark amber in color with very low carbonation. Nice long palate with a sharp hop flavor. This is one to keep stocked up on.
