COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A trio perfectly blended hops packed (literally!) into the brew give this intensely flavorful beer incredibly bold aromas and moderately high bitterness. Balanced with caramel malt sweetness India Style Pale ales are copper in color and traditionally fortified with higher alcohol and lots of hops to preserve the beer for its long travels. Wonderfully big and bold hoppy flavors are a perfect pairing with spicy foods or for those looking for a beer to reward them with the complexity of flavors so relished by "hop head" beer lovers.

Draft from the ambulance in Calgary. Hazy amber color, fluffy white head with nice retention and solid lacing. Aroma of summer fruit and tropical fruit. Taste is bittersweet mango, pineapple. Very tasty.

Overall this is a beautifully floral beer. The aroma pleasantly delights the senses! The color is a nice amber, and its holds an even carbonation that accentuates the earthy notes of the hops. This is a gift of hops, wrapped in a hop box, perfect for the hop heads amongst us! I recomend enjoying in style specific glassware. I always use my Dogfish/Sierra Nevada Speigalau IPA glass for hop forward pale ales.

A pretty decent IPA, this has been aggressive hop in the aroma and in the body with a fair amount of dryness in the finish. Solid

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 6, 2010
Sample at brewpub. Pours golden orange. The aroma is bursting with hop goodness. Grapefruit, lemon, pine, and caramel on the palate. Reminds me of Tree Hophead. And in no way is that a bad thing.

Part of the tasting tray at the brewpub. Deep burnt orange colour. Aroma of blood orange, guava. Heaps of tropical fruit hoppy goodness, long very bitter finish. Very fresh, superb!

50belair (3576) - Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2016
On tap at the brewpub in Lakeside. Yellow pour with a white head. Citrus hop aromas. Taste follows suit. Well balanced with a sturdy caramel malt backbone. Not overly complex but really tasty. Good body and mouthfeel.

Ibrew2or3 (8493) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Poured up on tap at the Tamarack brewpub with clear copper body and gold edges as well as a light tan head that leaves behind some sheet lacing. The aroma has plenty of pleasing yet somewhat modest pine hoppiness with faint snippets of sweet malts well off in the background. The taste has rich chewy hoppiness coming from a nice level of pine hops but also some floral hops and sort of a resiny grassy note. This is a pretty darn good IPA that brings up and lingers with near resiny bitterness into the after taste.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2010
Draft at the brewery, liked the one off the sampler tray so much I bought a pint. Pours clear orange, thin white head, okay/spotty lacing. Nose is big hops, balanced between sweet (mandarin?) orange, and spruce/pine notes. Palate is similar, a very similar beer to Tree Brewings estimable Hophead IPA. Excellent.

omhper (24627) - Tyres, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Clear brownish amber, small head. Concentrated swetay grapefruit aroma. Mid-dry with near full body and rounded mouthfeel. Very hoppy with concentrated flavour of sweaty graepfruit. Realy bitter finish. A rock solid IPA.
