This beer came in my beer club. I have never heard of the brewer before. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a copper color with a medium sized yellow-white head. The aroma was sour, tangy and buttery. The flavor was bitter, sour, tangy and buttery with a floral hop presence.

Pours a slightly hazy orange copper with a lasting two inch thick beige head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is not what I’d expect from an IPA, toasted malt, orange citrus, brown sugar and a hint of pine. Tastes more like a bad ESB, with bready, lightly toasted malt, malt sweetness, lemon citrus and a bitter-sweet, metallic aftertatse. How can they claim that this is an "IPA for hop heads." The body is full and sticky, like a good IPA, but the hops just aren’t there.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2008 Bottle. Dark copper pour with tan head. Aroma of malt and really faint pine. Bitter taste of maple syrup and hops. Still, good offering from a small microbrewery.

very clear orange-red (guess that would be amber) color. didn’tget much of a head. average looks, average smell. mouthfeel has a definite full body to it, even a bit sticky. malt sweetness/ flavor is present, in fact i think it slightly dominates the hoppy/ citrusy bitterness. hops take over at the finish. still has sticky malt sweetness at the end. carbonation is above average. average beer, not a traditional APA, but pretty good

Bottle Hazy amber pour with decent lasting head but good lacing. Citrus hop aroma with a bit of pine. Flavor is more citrus. Maybe not a bit hopy enough for an IPA.

jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2007
12oz bottle-pours a rocky tan head that laces and copper/amber color. Aroma is bitter citrus hops, secondary medium malt. Taste is bitter citrus/woody, slightly metallic hops, medium malt-caramel/toffee. Comes across as an ESB/English PA. OK carbonation.

epassa (105) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JUL 10, 2007
Amber color, medium head. Aroma: Hops, citrus, fruity, caramel. Palate: Fruity, caramel, too much bitter for a pale ale.

3.2
BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 25, 2007
[tap @ woodstock brewfest] Piney hop aroma, with some slight sweetness. Subtle malt flavors combine with a nice, bracing bitterness. Plenty of fruity, citrus hops round the finish out.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2007 Changing rating due to the fact that I didn’t realize that are marketing this as an IPA. As a pale ale, rating of 3.7

multiple cask pints at the Woodstock Inn after the festival across the street. Reddish amber/copper in color. Sudsy head from the hand pump. Aroma is fruity, with alot of peach/berry notes, some citrus, and a decent amount of 2 row/toasted/caramel malts. Taste is also pretty fruity, peach, apples, with a good malt backbone and some caramel sweetness. This quickly turns into quite a bitter finish. Hopped a bit more assertively than other pale ales out there and as a hophead I enjoyed it.

Again, I’m above the average on Woodstock Inn. I think for a Pale Ale I’d prefer less bitterness. On some beers that works but not on this one. It is similar to what I said about another Woodstock; this is a decent average brew. A little too much for the summer day I drank it, but maybe a cool fall afternoon.
