This is one of my favorite IPA's. Very aromatic and clean while totally drinkable and refreshing. He hop profile doesn't kick your palate in to badly for being as bold as it is.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a thin off white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma has lots of fresh, piney, grapefruit hops. The taste has grapefruit, slight mango and a little bit of pine. Grapefruit is the dominating flavor here. The end palate leaves a lingering bitterness backed up by the caramel malts. Creamy feeling body with moderate carbonation.

@ Jungle Jims / Eastgate - Clear dark copper amber with a snow-white head that drops to a head cover, curtain of lace. Taste is caramel malt that fights its way to the finish before finally being overtaken by pursuing pine hops. Both bitter and sweet linger deep through the finish. The delay makes it interesting, as well as recommendable.

Can from the Lazy Dog Pours s lightly hazy dark golden color that borders on amber with a huge fluffy whit head that persists for quite a while. Aromas of citrus and pine with some faint green onions and a solid hit of bready caramel malt to back it up. The flavor is actually quite malt forward with lots of sweet bread and rich caramel and toffee notes. Pine, resin, and a bit of green onion flavor provides a bit of balance. Firm hop bitterness. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet almost syrupy and resinous mouthfeel. My can shows a best before 1/25/14 Im not sure when that means it was bottled, but I found this a bit malty for an IPA. Decent enough and drinkable, but Id grab something else before this again.

Gamin (146) - Brockport, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Drank 3 months before its best by date. Wonderful piney hop aroma! Pine is also prevalent in flavor with small amounts of citrus. A minor bitter burn at the end without destroying your tongue, just like I like it. A pretty great IPA.

Pours clear golden with huge head and lacing. Monster pine aroma and hop punch up front with decent malt finish to balance out the bitterness, medium bodied mouthfeel. Very good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great aroma of floral and citrus hops. Some grapefruit, peachy citrus like hops with a nice malty backbone. Taste is malty with the same hop profile but maybe a bit of piney resinous finish. Almost tastes more like a double ipa. Full flavored and very good. A bit more bitter finish than I like but an ipa I would definitely buy again. I like the aroma better than the flavor, but if you want a mix of piney and citrus this one works well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
