COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bright sunrise orange in color, this American IPA is boldly hopped with East Kent Goldings, Cascade and locally grown hop varieties to give an intense yet powerfully smooth bitterness. The subtle caramel maltiness only accents the citrus hop highlights. Dry hopped with an incredible 2-1/2 pounds per barrel, this American style IPA is handcrafted to be extraordinarily refreshing.

3.1
decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Deep copper pour with creamy off white head and lace. Medium hop aroma, apples, caramel malt. Semi sweet malt with a nice resiny bitter. Thin and watery with smooth carbonation.

3.4
DiarmaidBHK (6137) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle from Ithaca coffee. Pours orange with almost no head. A bit of hoppiness on the nose. Big grapefruit on the tongue but it finishes fairly cleanly.

3.2
ganache (6087) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle. Huge piny hop nose with lots of citrus - big-time PNW scent out of a NY brewery. Very heavily dry hopped. Dark orange pour lets light through, fluffy tan head does not. Taste is surprisingly bitter (on the strong side of IPAs), bone-dry without any resin, and a good mix of pine and caramel. Light soap and light grapefruit/citrus. Fullish body. Place this one squarely into the ’aggressive’ IPA category.

3.5
notalush (5955) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2003
[bottled] Copper in color, with a respectable white lacing - pine aroma,with a bit of grain - crisp, slightly dry, decent hopping (not sure which hops are used here, but I feel the combination could be pulled off better) - very defined grapefruit flavor - some woody notes in the flavor as well - this needs some more malts to balance out the hoppiness, not so much in the initial flavor, but in the finish (the finish gets a little thin) - a decent IPA, though.

2.9
Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Pours a mahogany body with an off white head. Strong pine and hop resins with a hint of copper. Pine grass and a moderate amount of caramel malt to balance. Strong cloying bitter earthy almost metallic lingering. Wouldn’t drink again.

3.5
jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 24, 2011
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/amber with a thick, lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy hops and light caramel malts. The hops are very strong in this IPA, and it is very grapefruit-like in the finish. Average texture. A nice hoppy IPA.

3.5
CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2004
(Draught) Pours a medium, creamy, beige head and a clear amber body. Pleasant Hi-C hops in the nose and flavour - grapefruit and pine push to the forefront. Good.

3.2
muzzlehatch (4975) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2004
TAP NY sample. Creamy wisp of a head, medium amber color. Low-energy fruity nose, fair amount of unending bitterness throughout..dry and just a bit cardboardy at the finish. Pretty decent.

3.7
jsquire (4662) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2005
This beer is a copper color with a thin, foamy egg-shell colored head. The nose has a solid citrus hop aroma. It leaves a nice lacing on the side of the glass. The flavors are of orange peel bitterness, apple sauce sweetness and a lingering grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Maybe a little thin up front, but a very nice IPA.

3.1
TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Thanks to Fatty. Pours a slightly hazy copper amber with an off white fluffy head that left some lacing. Aroma was just a little off at first. Picked up some pine, slight citrus and caramel. Flavor of pine, slight bitterness with some malts to help balance.
