COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An inspired hybrid that blurs the boundaries between IPA and Amber styles. The exceptional blend of American hops (including the harder-to-find Horizon variety) gives it an intense pine, citrus and earthy character in the nose and on the tongue.

antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Bottle. Coppery bronze color-really not red at all, with a creamy white head. Very fresh hop smell with a sweet bready malt background. Very clean bitterness, not overlly bitter, with a light mouthfeel and a clean, slightly sweet fresh flavor. Dries out quickly and makes you want more. Very simple straightforward malt flavor with a very fresh hoppiness. Good no-brainer drinkin ale.

12 oz bottle. (HyVee) Dubuque, IA.
Clear amber color with a small grayish white head. Sweet sugary aroma with caramel malt, candy hops and mild bitterness. The flavor is caramel malt, sweetness, mild hoppy bitterness and woody dryness.

Red, deep copper/amber appearance. Nice clean citrus hops and some bread and malts on the nose. Taste is clean citrus hops with a nice malt base and an easy dry back end. Very drinkable, not a bitter hop bomb but a nice balance of hops and malt.

DrunkSanta410 (816) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a dark amber color, small tan head. Aroma is piney hops, floral with light malty sweetness. Solid IPA aroma. Taste is fantastic, great hoppiness with medium bitterness, fresh hop cone and pine. Medium body, medium carbonation. Hops are featured well here, good but could use a bit more of a malt balance. Still I would drink this all day.
