From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 9, 2013.

It pours an attractive looking medium to dark amber with a carbonated head that tops its off for the entire session. Lingers.

The aroma is upfront sweet and malty with an earthy hop feel that tends to take over quickly. It seems to fit into the style well.

The body is clearly astringent and acidic but there is also an unusual creaminess that accompanies it, which is a but odd for an IPA - but not offensive.

The taste boasts a full hop bitterness with the malts and other sweet character played down. It finishes a tad dry in a satisfying fashion. Decent enough American IPA.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #67 (August 2012):

LOOK: Quick frothing, clear pale amber

SMELL: Grapefruit rind, passion fruit, pineapple skin, green peppercorn, herbal, estery, crackers

TASTE: Smooth, crisp snap, bitter, grapefruit pith, heather, peppery, lime leaves, dry toast, yeast, slightly warming alcohol, very bitter finish

Wow, talk about being caught off-guard. Yeah, we saw the 82 IBU’s on the label, but we run into that on nearly a daily basis. 4000’er rakes down our taste buds with bitterness and a pretty wild flavor profile. Even the raw nature of this beer does not distract our palate from the massive hop presence here.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a soft glazy looking burnt orange color with a lasting foamy white head. Head dissipates at a nice pace, nice looking rings of foamy lace weave around the glass. The aroma starts off with some sweet malts closing in on some bitter grassy to light tobacco. The flavor leans dried grassy sweet with a light clean smooth dried tobacco-ish aftertaste (acceptable, yet good). Semi-sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable smooth feel to it. Carbonation seems to ride fairly light. Tobacco dryness creates an acceptable clingy-ness to it. Overall, English styled IPA, good for what it is, if anything.

Pours a mostly clear amber, with minimal carbonation or head. Smells of hop/malt split, but there seems to be multiple distinct hop aromas. Moderately bitter taste that stays, surrounded by the malt/hop mix, accented by alcohol. Medium consistency to the mouthfeel, fairly easy to drink. It was not exactly what I was expecting, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. It would be great if they could can this brew so it would be easy to bring a summit beer worthy of a 4000 foot New Hampshire peak.

Poured from a 12oz bottle, code is 128514, not sure how to read that.

Pours a hazy gold body, lots of lacing and a long lasting head. Aroma and flavor fall short though as it`s dominated by a malty and biscuity profile and bitterness is astringent but without flavor to back it up.

Cute bottle art. Amber with a thin head that disperses into a rip curl of retention. Smells piney citrus with a hearty caramel malt foundation. Mellows out into a sweet floral theme as it warms.

Tastes piney citrus with caramel backing. The caramel is easier on the gusto than the olfactories which is good 'cause I don't like too much in my IPAs. Pine and bug spray hop flavor is shamefuly overshadowed by the unbalanced bitterness. Body is light for 6.5% and has some nice resin.

An appropriate beer to celebrate my Wildcat, Carter-Moriah traverse in which I bagged 6 official 4k'ers.
