Tasted June 19th 2011 (from notes)

Poured into an English pub glass

A - a deep amber/copper, off white but very little head and no lacing

S - light pine and floral hops, malt, malt and more malt and slight yeast

T - nice fruity note, a hint of floral, pine, a bit of grass, nice malt, big on grains and slight yeast

M - kind of chewy, medium bodied, medium acidity and long finish

D - great beer, nice bitterness, no sweet, nice earth tones. Just a well rounded and crisp IPA

Final thought - if you have never had an IPA, start with this one

Amber and copper color, almost no head sticks around or leaves any lace within 1 minute of the pour. Pretty hoppy, no other detectable aromas out of the nose.

More and more hops, definitely unbalanced unabashed in the west coast stylee for yall. Plenty bitter, but it at least backs it up with a good stinging hop mouthfeel leaning citrus wise. Slight alcohol remains in the mouthfeel, not a detraction, not complimentary either. Almost nothing to speak of in the malt department, pale, crystal possibly, but its all speculation since 99% of what you taste is biting bitterness and heady hoppiness.

Pretty good stuff.

On-tap @ Tony's Darts Away - Reviewed from notes. Served in a 10oz nonic.

Burnt orange body with bright flame highlights all topped off by a thin beige head with excellent retention. Pasty lasting.

Delicate aromatics with citrus, marshmallow, and a fresh generic herbal quality. Hoppy, but I'm not sure which varietie(s) were used.

Surprisingly bitter palate entry - almost abrasive, without being too pine forward. Faintly toasted malt comes out for balance but is still dominated heavily by the bitterness. Bitter melon, roobois tea, lemon leaves, and earthy hops lead into a dry cutting finish.

Medium-bodied with active carbonation.

A bit one-dimensional, but still a distinctive take on the style that hop-heads and lovers of bitter beers should appreciate.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear dark straw to red body.
The aroma is dark fruits.
The taste is malty sweet balanced with some pine and grapefruit bitter. Tends malty.
The texture is softer.
Really enjoyable.
