Pours a clear orange with a small white head that lingers.

Smells of honey, pear, pineapple, grapefruit, pine notes also come through as well.

Taste is pear, pineapple, stone fruit up front that shifts into a pine character, and ends on a bitter kick with a lingering grapefruit, hop oil character that is quite nice. Great mix of fruit and pine...reminds me of Jai Alai quite a bit actually.

Medium body and medium carbonation make this a chewier IPA than some. Alcohol is present but not out of balance.

Quite a good IPA that showcases fruit and pine characters while being bigger and heartier than a lot of IPAs I've had. Really nice overall.

12 oz brown bottle, bottled on date stamped on label

A - Mostly clear amber with orange highlights, soapy white head that retains and laces well.

S - Loads of pine hops in the nose, with some floral, with a sweet caramel malt as it warms.

T - Follows the nose with big pine hops up front, strong caramel malt backbone in the middle, finishing very bitter with more resinous pine. Notes of grapefruit flesh, some pineapple and a little breadiness sprinkled throughout.

M - Full body, thick and creamy across the palate, and prickly from the hops.

O - Aptly named beer. Big, bold, strong flavors balance well against each other. I'd get it again.

Poured a light copper with thick two finger head. It tries to lace the glass, but only hangs on in small globs. Lots of malt in teh nose, dominated by well cooked biscuit. Makes me want to eat this beer. Some grassy, pungent hops detectable under the malt. Thick biscuity malt, followed by grassy hops which linger to bring bitterness to the throat. A little nectar detected in the hop flavor with a few sips. Middling to thick feel.

A malt first IPA. These types of IPAs aren't my favorite. Maybe it's just where I live and grew into the West Coast IPA style, but I like my IPAs hoppy. Please also try to make your beers a little complex. Don't give me a one note malt. GDBC did just that with this beer. All I get is biscuit and a bit of hops. Makes me want to age it and hope it turns into a Barleywine.

Pours a light copper color with a decent head. Some lacing on the glass as the beer goes down.

Smell: Hops, pine, along with some malt.

Taste: Very smooth with some nice hops flavor. A nice citrus hops bitterness for the finish.

Overall a very good IPA which I would recommend you give a try

12oz bottle into tulip snifter.
bottled on: Sept.22 2011

Pours a dark golden with a foamy off-white head.

The aroma is of balanced pine and citric hops upfront. Has a light malty backing.

The taste is citric and pine again, with faintly sweet, malty backing.

A nice medium to full body, with average carbonation.

A solid, enjoyable IPA. A nice balance in hop characteristics and just enough malt backing. Definitely something I would consider purchasing again.

Pours a pale amber with a quarter inch of dense, off white head that has great retention. There are obvious carbonation bubbles rising to the surface. It smells a little soapy at first, but once the head settles it smells of bready malt and pine hops. The flavor is piny up front with some intense hops, but finishes smooth with rich, bready malt. There are some citrusy notes here but are taken over by the pine hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and perfectly carbonated.

This is a pretty solid IPA. The hops are intense and hit the majority of the spectrum. The malt is heavy enough to balance this beer well. This is an IPA that I would go back to.
