pour is a clear golden amber with a tight light tan head. Nose is balanced, caramel malt and a faint bready note. Strong citrus in back. Flavor is more hop forward but still has a nice malt backbone. Caramel is light as well as a doughier bread. Hops are aggressive, citrus with a touch of citric acid. Light lingering bitterness and strong carbonation. Faint grain in the body with a fairly dry finish.

Voodoo (632) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Aroma of green hops and piney notes.....pours a clear medium golden color. Taste hits with green hops in the nose, citrus and pine notes, maltiness in between then lingering bitterness at the end without the oily hop residues many other high hopped brews have, which is a pleasant surprise.

I’m a novice when it comes to IPAs, so I’m not sure i can tell the difference between this Imperial and India Pales. Smooth mouthfeel. Easy to drink.

Pale gold color. Tropical fruit notes, almost white wine-like. Well-balanced, with a light mouthfeel. Finishes clean with a lingering bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light amber in color with a full, malty aftertaste. Floral hop aroma with a medium hop finish. Slightly higher alcohol results in a boozier taste than desired in an IPA.

Bottle, as pictured. Pours a clear gold, not much carbonation. Smells a bit piney, very grassy. Taste is similar but not too hardcore hoppy. I have no idea how fresh this is, but I don’t think it’s TOO old. Not bad, but doesn’t hold a candle to fresh Nugget Nectar (but what does?).

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 24, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Citrusy hop resins meet lightly biscuity and caramelized cereals in this friendly IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the pale gold.
-Mouthfeel is lean and conducive to big gulps.
-Resinous bitterness is leveled to the rest of the flavor profile’s medium intensity.
-Don’t know if this was a freshness, but I thought this IPA of Troegs’s had much less character than their Nugget Nectar (for example).

Bottle.
