Review from 6/2011 notes. Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a clear medium coppery orange amber with a two finger white head. Nice citrusy, fresh hops aroma with light malt. Flavor is citrus, light malt, lightly sweet, intense hops. Medium bodied. Finish emphasizes the hops, with little malt flavor carrying through. A pleasant IPA, but could use a bit more malt body. Nice, but not noteworthy.

This beer poured an orangey amber color from a 22oz bomber, with the typical hop haze in an IPA. The head was about an inch of tightly bubbled dirty white foam. The foam sank back into the beer relatively quickly, but left lacing around the glass that stayed until the beer was gone. The aroma was unfortunately underwhelming, dominated by citrus and pine. Taste wise, lots of hops citrus and that pine again, but a bit of malt in the finish. overall, an ok examplemofman IPA.

1 Pint, 6 FL OZ. bottle into tulip glass.
A - Pours semi-cloudy golden, with a HUGE, THICK, white head...- some good lacing.
S - Hops and lots of sweet citrus - some orange & grapefruit tones...
T - A challenge due to the thick, overtaking head... Although an abundand hop kick at the top, followed by some citrus, then ending with a bit of pine-like spices...strong hop flavor!!
M - Good carbonation... There's a good fullness. Some fruity/sweet flavors with pine/spice...but the HUGE 'over-the top' feel is the hops!
O - This one is good, yet not really a refreshing ipa...Here's why...can there be 'too-much; of a good thing? PERHAPS!! Here I think the hops cross the line to make it a harsh, rather than a refreshing beer...I'm one of the hugest hop-heads there is, but this one no thanks.

22 oz. bomber poured into a straight pint glass.
A: The beer poured a clear golden color with a thick two-finger head of fluffy white foam. There numerous streams of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Extremely thick lacing was prominent throughout.
S: The initial aroma is one of malt with pine and floral, fruity hop notes.
T: Upon hitting your palate, the beer has a sweet malt flavor that is followed by a punch of bitter hops and some floral notes finishing things off.
M: Very nice medium body with an oily mouth feel and no bitter aftertaste.
O: This is a really nice beer, seems to almost be a stronger version of the Wild Cat IPA.

22 picked up at Brewforia a couple days ago... After a looong day at work, this is looking pretty appealing in the fridge.
In my Portsmouth tulip, a nice 1" head hangs on for a bit.. great lacing.. the brew is a nicely polished orange/lite amber.
Nose is pithy citrus.. a better than expected malt presence amplifies the lack of real hop aroma.
Big.... BIG bitterness up front... really dies off quickly ... a bit of pale malt and some minor caramel.... the hop flavors are there, but not on the scale that I expect from a PNW IPA... the bitter bite lingers from front to back.
Body is nice... maybe (if I really complain) a touch thick... carbonation is ever-present but not quite enough to cut through the body.
Will I buy this one again? Ehhh.... Meeehhh... Probably... but I hope it is more dialed in with a lesser malt profile and a bigger hop presence on the palate. Too many other IPA's out there to get lost on a tough call.
