3.43/5  rDev +1.2%

Light gold color. VERY large creamy head. The pour looked like a blond Guinness. Aroma is a touch citrusy and fruity. My nose made a huge dent in the foam while testing for aroma. A very creamy, medium bodied IPA. Fruity and a touch sour. Malts are fruity with a touch of banana. Hops are spicy and floral. Sort of understated for an IPA. Very creamy. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with a touch of banana about halfway through.

3.35/5  rDev -1.2%

Judged at the 2003 Lucky Baldwin's IPA Festival (Blind Sample)

One of the few nitro poured IPA's at the Festival.

Beer pours dark yellow with a tight dense white head due to the nitro pour. Aroma takes a long time to punch through the effects of the nitro, but the primary character is of pine resin and a raspy hop oil.

Body is dense and rich with a slight corny malt and a soft finish with a light hoppy note with a final touch of peppermint.

While the body would be more lacking without the Nitro, the aroma would be more pronounced than the nitro allows it to be.
