Poured from growler into pint glass. From 7/6/11 tasting notes.
A: Pours a slightly hazy sunset yellow-orange with 1/2 inch white head. Some lacing.
S: Very aromatic. Loads of sharp pine, pineapple, and citrus hops. Hint of honey and floral note.
T: Very sharp and bitter hops. A bit much for me, but hopheads would rejoice.
M: Very sharp and bitter hop feel. Light-medium body (drinks heavier than ABV). Mildly soft and oily too.
D: Very enjoyable, but the high hop content limits the drinkability for me. A nice summer brew.

A: Crystal clear light orange/dark yellow with a small white head. Good lacing/

S: Sweet oranges, citrus and a bit of pine hops. A bit of tropical fruit too.

T: Fairly bright and citrus hops up front. Some sweet fruity and orange flavors as well. Decent malt backbone comes next, still finishes fairly bitter.

M: A bit on the thinner side. Average, yet softer carbonation. Feels slick.

D: Pretty good drinkability for an IPA. Pretty solid, but not as good as there El Nino.

A-Deep golden color..../1/8 inch soft white head.

S-Big pine element....also some sweet mandarin oranges and pink grapefruit.

T-No shortage of hops in this one. Begins with a sweeter citrus hop flavor...then a grapefruit rind element takes over and finally a rough edgy pine hoppiness...Malt balances nicely and makes this a nice hoppy drinker.

M-Medium bodied...feels substantial.

D-It's easy to take these great IPA's from Fitger's for granted. This is an IPA with a lot of things going for it. It really has about three dimensions to its hoppiness...perhaps a little rough around the edges overall but if you like hops you should like this one. Reminds me a little of Masala Mama from Town Hall actually.
