Thanks to ppoitras for this one!

Pours a glowing crystal-clear golden color, small white head fades quickly and leaves a few patches of lacing...really love the clarity on this one. I'm thinking this recipe has been tweaked since anyone last reviewed it, because the citrus/grapefruit hop aromas are jumping out of the glass at me....really nice. Taste is very well balanced, some bitter piney notes on the back of the tongue, bright citrus flavors, and that familiar Pioneer grainy/bready taste....this is the goods!! Refreshing, nice lingering bitterness, and shaping up to be a dynamite accompaniment to the steak & onion sandwiches I'll be making later. Crazy-drinkable IPA, and I'm very pleased I got to try this one.

Pours a golden yellow with ample head and excellent lacing. Smell is a nice blend of yeast and hop notes. Taste is not a "blow me away IPA", but starts with a distinctive malt sweetness that blends into a light hop bitterness mid-palate and finishes a tad stronger, with a lingering laightly bitter aftertaste...once again not the usual IPA but nonetheless very good. As noted above the mouthfeel blends the malt sweetness and hop presence. For a 7 abv, very drinkable..not harsh at all like some IPAs. Definite recommendation.

Pours amber with an off-white head that sticks around.

The smell is of citric fruitiness with caramel backing.

The taste is citric with pine in the back. Caramelish support way in the back gives it a nice balance for the style. There is something perfumy in the taste mixing in.

Medium-bodied and smooth.

A nice, sessionable, well-balanced IPA overall.

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for sharing!

Enjoyed at the brewpub in good old Stein #42.

Presented with a 1/2" beige head over the slightly cloudy golden amber brew. Head fades rather quickly down to an uneven film of bubbles, heavier around the edges. Aroma is light, with pale malt sweetness forefront, hops more sedate here than expected. Taste also starts with the biscuity grains, but finds the hops coming on nicely in the middle, and dominating the close, with crispness, and plenty of lingering bitterness, in a good way. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth, and drinkability is excellent. Not the west coast smack-you-in-the-face IPA, but then again, we are in New *England*. Nice effort here, quite enjoyable.

Tap at Zorbas

Light fluffy 1/2 finder head with lacing over mostly clear
Golden wood nectar orange colored beer.

Nose Light golden malts, light citrus and floral hops.

Taste starts fairly biter right off, spicy bittering hops, light citrus and orange rind, light golden sweet malts try to balance but it just gets more and more bitter. Finishes drier and very bitter, lingering spicy and citrus hops, orange rind, little astringent .

Mouth is med bodied, decent carb

Overall not bad, very bitter, nice fresh hops though, light malty balance that disappears behind the bitters.

Pours a nice golden amber into my Carlsberg Imp Pint. Lively carbonation arises from the etched bottom. Head rises a might 1.5 inches and slink back into the glass slowly. A very light sweet aroma from this one with a bit of a light hoppy presence.

Taste is nice; crisp, clean and sweet rolls across the tongu and follows with a creeping in of nice, light dry hops. I think this is the definition of smooth - everything in a nice mellow balance almost reminiscent of the feel of some of the nicer English Ales. Nothing really jumps out at you but if this is not the definition of 'drinkable' then I have no idea what is...

Thanks Pete....smooth it is...
