COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of premium hops and balanced with a premium selection of English malt. Traditionally unfiltered IPA’s lead to the slight haze appearance. 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. If you’re at the brewery you’ll be able to guess what style of beer every brewer has in his hand. THE BEER YOU'VE BEEN TRAINING FOR!

NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - FEB 8, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2003 Dusty orange body, moderate sediment/floaties. Head is medium-sized, off-white, and barely lasting. Steady carbonation throughout the glass. Hoppy aroma in the form of citrus, mostly fresh orange, not much lemon, and not piney like I'm sort of used to finding in an American IPA. Suprisingly soft mouthfeel. The pale/crystal malts definitely make an appearance before the sharp wave of hoppy bitterness rides in. The aftertaste lingers dry and long, which is terrific. Definitely worthy of praise.

Pours medium with decent, lingering head. Nose is bright, citrus, honey. Taste is perfect, dense, carbonation, disappearing thickness, hops hops hops then nothing. Mouthfeel plays tricks, it’s syrupy for a second, then gone - making it easy to go back for an immediate second sip. Purists be damned, this IPA is great cold. I could drink this every day. I do drink this every day.

Hmmm... Kinda ordinary, certainly does not live up to the hype. Some hop flavor in there somewhere, drown out by malt. Much better beers out there. Disappointing.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head that shows great lacing. Taste is typical IPA. Grain and grassy notes dominate with a dry bitter bit not too bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is nice and citrusy. Taste is a lighter citrus taste with just enough bitterness. Overall very good.

Bottle. Poured a a hazy tannish orange color with a generous head. Some floral and citrus hop notes with some caramel malt background. Medium heavy bitterness. Medium body. This is a very good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAY 21, 2017
Appearance: clear pale amber with two fat fingers of rocky white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: floral, caramel, citrus, pine, earth. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (3/5) A bit… well… “classic” would be a generous way of putting it, I suppose. “Old-fashioned” works too. The hop character struggles to rise above the the caramel malt, making it tend towards something like an English-style IPA. Not entirely, but enough that it feels a bit dated. Decent and solid, but not exciting at all. (14/20) 7/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com

Pours a light amber color. Little chunks of sediment. Big, thick, tall, white poofy head. Great retention, excellent lacing.

Aroma is very floral. Lots of floral hops, touch of alcohol. Touch of citrus.

Taste is well balanced. I guess the floral hops don’t add as much to bitterness? There’s a little grapefruit. Maybe orange zest.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Not so bitter, until the finish. I’d guess the IBUs to be about 65. Pretty good hop oil residual. Drinks easy.

Overall, I like it. Good IPA, I’d drink it again, buy it again, and recommend it. Cheers!
