COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

An extensive dry-hopping process contributes to its very intense floral hop aroma. The IPA is unfiltered and as always, unpasteurized to leave all the natural flavors intact.

12 ounce bottle- has a pleasant melon/fruit aroma. Poured a very attractive deep goleden color and clear. Thin to no head. Taste was sharp with a little fruitiness, almost too sweet.

Boring but drinkable ipa. Citrusy flowery hop aroma and flavor. Goes down nice enough, but doesnt leave you wanting more.

Bottle from Ucusty. Orange colored with a nice foamy white head that lasted for quite a while. Smells like a wonderful IPA. I couldnt wait to try this one. Taste has a very nice malt presence and has a very nice hop finish that keeps me wanting more. Great brew.

riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2008
Bottle from Ty5592. Copper colored beer with a thin head and decent lacing. Floral, citrus hop aroma a touch of caramel malt leaving a balanced nose. The flavor is much of the same. Pleasantly bitter, nothing over the top, with good balancing caramel malt. Still probably more hoppy than malty, but well balanced nonetheless. Seemingly good for session drinking.

copper brown, very thin layer of head, quickly faded away. very pleasant aroma of hops, hops and more hops! very smooth finish. nice bitterness balance, although i could see where some "hopheads" might want more, but its right where i like it to be. hops over power the malt here, as it is of citrus hops. really enjoyable IPA, now only if i could get it in orlando, that would make me extremely happy!

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2008
From bottle : Pours a hazy medium gold color, with a frothy white head that doesnt last long, then goes to bubbles on the surface. Very nice nose of piney hops and some citrus on the back end. Flavor is a very nice mix of piney and citrus hops, not to overbearing, but a very nice balance and taste. Very crisp with a medium body, aftertaste is faint hops. Pretty solid little ipa.

12 oz bottle thanks to shp555. Pours a nice clear amber with a large foamy white head. Nice hoppy aroma with lots of citrussy hops, slight caramel maltiness and some bready notes. Initial flavor was tons of hop bitterness but once my palate adjusted after a sip or two this moved from average to pleasantly nice. Medium bodied with a rather smooth finish for a beer with such a strong hop character. Good stuff, sort of like finding the good looking hooker who isnt to bright so the Dirty Sanchez you requested actually paid you $5 when she gives you back your change from the $30.00 bill you gave her.

On par with a really good IPA although i think its rating is rather high. I enjoyed it but it didnt wow me. The 420 i thought was more impressive for its subtly and this tried too hard to hoptimize. Ill have an imperial if i want to have that.

One of many bonus bottles from unclemattie in a recent trade. Thanks! The pour was a very nice looking pale amber color with a perfect, slightly creamy, one-finger tall head that provided decent lacing. The aroma was citrus fruits with plenty of pineapple and mango softening it up. Theres also sweet, biscuity malts and some light pine. The flavor was a sweet blend of oranges, pineapple and sugary malts. A nice amount of pine hops brings down the hammer nicely in the back. The mouthfeel is very nice and the finish is clean. Really nice. Thanks again!
