UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 Don’t know why or when they started using wheat malt in all their beers. Wasn’t bad in ’10, but I think its changed now. Maybe just me.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a clear amber with a little bit of white head. Aroma of mostly hops but not very strong I also get some hints of malts. taste is quite watery nice bitterness to it. probably a good alternative to introduce somebody to the world of IPAs since it is not that strong but it stills shows the qualities of the style. Easy to drink.

12oz bottle from Spirits Berkley. Poured a very good looking deep brownish orange body with a larger frothy off white head. Aroma of old oranges, toast, grains, touch of lemons and grapefruit as well. Medium bodied with a pleasantly bitter finish and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor of toast, grains, dried out citrus rinds, amber malts. This needs more hops in the flavor.

Bottle, courtesy of nimbleprop – thanks! Pours an amber orange, nice clarity and two fingers of creamy sand colored head. Thick sheets of lacing and great head retention. Ripe citrus hops, grapefruit and light tropical fruit blend, a faint dank herbal scent, and caramel malt. The taste is soft up front, herbals and dirty florals. The citrus fruit is missing, but the malt base works very well with the florals. Good flavors, but mild in intensity. It does have a little more bite at the finish, but overall mild for a DIPA.

Weak hops flavor on this brew. Would expect a bit more hoppiness from an IPA. Pour is a nice light amber with a thin white head.

Bottle. Pine, grassy hops notes, bitter finish. Not what I’d call an interesting IPA - it lacks nuance - but ok if those superior beers aren’t on the menu

ElCapitan22 (363) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Pours a clear gold color with decent lacing and fair head retention. Tastes slightly bitter and malty, but nothing really stands out here. Pretty non- descript.

nittanytide (289) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Poured copper with a nice foamy head. Grassy aroma. Taste is pine and grass. Not a lot of fruit in the flavor profile. Dry, lingering finish. Decent.
