Thanks to dujayhawk for this particular bottle. I've had this one a few times before, but never given it a proper review. Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a clear light gold, with a one-finger white head that quickly fades to foam. Moderate visible carbonation.

S: Huge hop aroma. Tropical fruit, floral, grass, dank, and a bit of orange/citrus. Just a touch of biscuit malt in the background.

T: Follows the nose, but more orange & grapefruit citrus hops, with some melon and spice in addition. The tropical fruit hops seem most prominent. Bitterness in the hang but that fades quickly from the palate.

M: Light body, great carbonation sensation, minimal alcohol presence.

O: Well, this is as tasty as ever. Certainly one of my top IPAs out there.

From notes, 8/22/10. Pours a nice dull gold. Mildly hazy. Good-sized white head. Floral and fruity. Rather fresh hoppy aroma. Tangerines/apricots(?), hop flowers, some pine resin, a little grass. It’s just not quite as strong as I’d like. A bit blandly bitter, particularly in the finish. A lightly sweet crystal malt flavor lurks below. This is yet another beer that I’d like to revisit in the future, preferably from a fresh keg. 7/7/11. Better than I remember. Fruity, floral hop aroma and very good flavor. Could have a bit more bitterness, but it’s nice and pale without any of the cloying caramel note that plagues many IPAs. It has some light stickiness. Pleasant beer.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into an Ommegang tulip at low altitude in NY. Had this a few times before and quite enjoyed it, so expectations are high.

A: Pours an appealing semi-translucent honey color with a one- to two-finger stark white head of good retention. There is a small but noticeable amount of yeast on the bottom of the glass. Plenty of lacing as well. Overall, it's a good-looking beer.

S: Fruity hop notes and pineapple dominate, with caramel malts in the background.

T: The fruity, citric hop notes come out up front, but are followed closely by a solid caramel malt backbone. The bitterness comes back briefly on the finish, but it's not at all overpowering. The balance here is fantastic and really sets this one apart from other IPAs.

M: Medium-bodied and well carbonated. Very refreshing.

O: Excellent. If you live in the NY area, this should be near the top of your list for a summer IPA sixer.

Pours dark orange with two finger white head. Smell is amazing hops, citrus, pine, pretty tropical. Taste is well balanced, a lot of the tropical fruits, buttery bitterness if that makes sense, lemon, grapefruit, slight malty flavor. Overall, very good IPA, worth seeking out and glad I am able to find it in ohio.... Plus my last name is entitled in the beer so I couldn't pass this up.
