Been told to get and try this one - finally here! Poured a deep golden, clear with a thick ivory head. Lace in the Corsendonk tulip sticking like gorilla glue.

Sharp, stinging pine in the aroma, with a citrus slice lurking underneath. Quaff is a woody pine, rotten wood, I guess. Not a good IPA at all, IMO.

Sorely disappointed in this one. One sixer and I'm done.

Poured into a 4oz sampling glass at a promo event.

A: Orange/amber color, with a thin white head that didn't last or lace well.

S: There was a floral bouquet of citrus (pineapple, pink grapefruit, etc), but it was way overpowering by sweet orange, as if someone had mixed it with O.J. concentrate. Was a little nervous to take a sip.

T: No evidence of hop bitterness whatsoever, except for a dryness on the aftertaste, that I can only attribute to a hop presence. The flavor, like the nose, was WAY overpowered by orange/tangerine sickly-sweet flavor. Given all of the positive reviews I read, I was WAY disappointed.

M: Medium-bodied and decently carbonated.

D: I just couldn't get past the orange flavor dominance. If I wanted orange juice, I would've asked for Tropicana.

I really hope that this was just a bad batch, because I intend on giving it a second shot.

On Tap

The Fox and Hound
Peoria, AZ

Dark copper in color with a moderately sized light khaki colored head that leaves lines of lace down the glass.

A bready aroma complemented by a bit of caramel and bittering hops.

The hop flavor comes in the way of a moderate level of bitterness, along with bready, slight caramel, sweet malts. Well balanced and drinkable, but unexciting.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation.

Middle of the road IPA.
