Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Made with seven hop varieties, this deep copper-orange IPA is loaded with juicy hop notes of pine, lemon zest, and a layer of pink grapefruit and a strong foundation of toasted caramel malts underneath it all give this beer a complexity that's unparalleled.

Bottle > Pint Glass
A - Pours a decent orangish gold color, big thick 2 finger head khaki colored, decent lacing.
S - Floral hops, fresh grass, some honey, a touch of pine, and sweet malt.
T - This has a lot of malt power to it, expecially for being an American IPA. Some earthy flavors with a mild sweetness.
M - Not bad, clingy sweetness, a little bitter lingering.
O - I know this is an old bottle, for weyerbacher doesnt brew it anymore, but I couldnt see this being a stellar beer, but it has big time malt flavors goin on in here for it to really be a good representation of an American IPA

A - Dark amber body with zero head, just a faint ring of lace.

S - Pretty malt forward for an IPA, honey, brandy, booze, piney hops.

T - Sweet malts and low hops, bread, honey, orange, pine needle.

M - Medium syrupy body, low carbonation.

O - Perhaps I got a bad bottle, but I was pretty disappointed after the Double Simcoe these guys have out. Weird.

3.58/5  rDev -1.4%

A - dark orangish amber with a huge, soft, dense, off white head that has decent retention

S - lightly bready with big citrusy notes

T - bready, piney, citrusy, bitter

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a very hoppy beer with a mild malt presence. I think with just a touch more malt for balance this could be a superb beer. As it is, it's good but in an IPA-flooded market, there's little here that stands out.
