12oz bottle poured into SNevada pint glass. Bottled on 12/12/11.

A: Hazy yellow orange color. About a half finger of bright white head. Nice carbonation on this one. Leaves some sticky lacing bits on the glass.

S: I get some sweet and fruity hops, along with some bready malt backbone lurking behind it.

T: You can tell that they are using whole cone hops ala SN Torpedo. You get a nice hop bitterness on the tip of the tongue. Lots of pine (actually) more so than the fruit that I initially smelled. I get a bitter mouth coat from those hops leading to a crisp bitter finish.

M: Medium bodied.

O: It's a solid little IPA. Nothing mind blowing, but definitely sessionable. A solid B beer in my book.

Aroma is more yeasty than hoppy, but still inviting. It pours a clear golden, average, but the fluffy white head is quite thick and persistent and leaves quite a bit of lacing. Flavor is fairly hoppy, somewhat bitter, with subtle fruity and yeasty notes. Firm-bodied texture is quite fizzy and lively - you feel this one when it goes down the pipes. Overall, about average for an IPA but still worthy of a try, especially if you are an IPA fan.

12 ounce bottle received from woolyb in a recent BIF. Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

A: Slightly hazy golden-orange color with a creamy thick bubbly white head. Thin patchy cap with just a bit of lacing on the glass. Not the best looking IPA, but there's nothing really wrong with it.

S: Good citrus notes up-front, bitter orange oils, mango and some sweet caramel malt. Not too much else going on, it's not a blast of hops nor malt and seems a bit reserved. The citrus qualities are certainly there, not so much in the way of earthy hops though.

T: Caramel malts with a hint of sweetness is immediate, closely followed by some citrus hop flavors. Orange and lemon peels, oils and some floral elements. There's some odd flavor in the finish and linger that I can't quite place, but it's not good at all. Nothing disgusting but still.

M: Lower carbonation, medium-bodied and certainly lots of bubbles giving it a smooth feel. Dry and such an odd flavor in the linger.

Well this was okay. It's not my favorite American IPA but not my least favorite. Middle of the road to the back end, but if offered again I'd take it.

Deuane returned from North Carolina with this fresh bottle of IPA.

A - Poured a hazy, dull orange with some golden highlights...a one finger, white head formed...it fell to a full, but thin cap and left very nice lacing

S - I can't get much out of the aroma...piney hops, a dash of citrus, more caramel

T - The hops start things off...they come across with bitter piney flavors and sweet citrus notes...the bitterness overpowers the sweetness on the palate...it remains bitter until the finish where some caramel tries to come in and tame the bitterness...there is a sweet caramel finish with bitter hops pushing through

M - Medium bodied...soft carbonation, finishes bitter, then sweet, then bitter again

O - This was pretty fresh when I consumed it...there could have been more of a nose, but the flavors worked really well together...the finish was pleasant also
