COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is brewed using 2-Row, wheat, Vienna and caramel malts and is hopped with Summit’s for bittering and flavor and Ahtanum for aroma. This IPA was also dry-hopped, meaning hops were put in the fermentors and serving tanks to give a big citrus and spicy aroma, with Ahtanum, Challenger and Chinook hops. Our IPA is an American style IPA that has a high amount of bitterness but is well balanced and very drinkable.

DuffMan (10072) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle. Medium golden colour, slightly hazy, average white foam cap. Fairly typical West Coast-style IPA with nice grapefruity hop character and an assertive bitter finish. I actually liked this better than the Monsoon.

Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with a medium sized off white head. The nose is floral, citrus and mild pine with some lightly sweet pale maltiness in the background. The flavor has a moderate caramel malt base with ample amounts of grapefruit citrus, pine and spicy hops. Although this had pieces that I thought were nice, they didnt work together for me. Maybe this would be better at the brewery.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2012
22oz bottle, purchased for $6 from the Athens, OH Kroger. ABV was listed as 7.2%. Half hazy golden yellow color, thin white head, leaving respectable lace. Light and crisp carbonation, but kind of oily. Hops are a bit on the malty sweet side. No date on this bottle that I can find. This doesnt taste very fresh. It lacks that nice, fresh hop herbal taste, but its not bad. Beyond the malty sweetness, theres a light bitterness. Im sure this is way better on tap. On the actual label, "dry-hopped" is spelled as "dry-hoped", "floral bouquet" is spelled as "floral boquet"

Bottle (bomber) at the Beerhive. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. A very nice fruity and pine nose, the citrus hops are strong. A nice flavor as well; robust hops, bitterness throughout, pine, a light toasted malt background. Very nice, between a IIPA and IPA.

Bottle to snifter (thanks, Tom). Looks fine; burnt-orange with lots of head. Smells okay; grass and onions. Tastes Better than it smells; not great, but good balance. Mouthfeel is good. Decent.

Ibrew2or3 (8508) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2012
22oz bomber pours copper with light tan head. The aroma has nice and bold and chewy resiny pine, spicy and grapefruit like hoppiness. Those aromatics are binding together with a modest level of sweet maltiness. Smells real nice. The taste is pleasingly similar with a great mix of pine hops, spicy heading into dank hops and grapefruit like citrus hoppiness. These notes are biased toward bitter hops but the flavor hops do carve out a bit of elbow room. Wow. This is a damn good IPA. Im not sure if my expectations were just low or I was in the perfect mood for this. Nonetheless, well done. Yes, wow!

Many thanks to Stefan SD for this 650 ml bottle.
Golden in the glass, slightly sweet and very intense hoppy in the nose. The beer starts much more bitter than expected. Only slightly sweet in the background. The intense bitter note lies over all - also nearly no floral hop aroma, as the nose predicts. The aftertaste is long, intense-bitter, smooth.
Probably not the freshest bottle, as I miss any of the floral hop aroma. But not bad at all - a decent very bitter brew! --> 12/10/12/11
