Pine aroma and nice bottle bubbles. Full-bodied IPA, with grapefruit. Nicely carbonated. Malts round out the finish. Would be happy with this all night. The hop and the whole hop including the leaf, tad of mint. Refreshing. Another Great Divide winner.

Bottled on 4/4/12.

Pours a murky honey orange with a 1 inch foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and herbal hops. Taste is of citrus zest and herbal hops up front with a malt finish and an alcohol kick with each sip. There is also a slight vegetal presence that comes out as the beer warms. There is a medium amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but not as good as I was expecting.

a pretty basic but bigger than normal ipa. pours a pale amber color with a reasonable white head. smells sweet and resiny, hops is the only smell and flavor here. redish in taste, tiny bits of malt sweetness with a medium to large hop presence. mouthfeel is more heavy than it should be, filling and sugary. overall a good ipa but it doesnt even approach odell or new belgium ips offerings. sweet and dull to some extent. hercules is leaps and bounds better!

this IPA pours out as a nice clean looking dark yellow color, the head leaves a decent lacing, the smell has a nice hoppy aroma with a faint amount of malts in there. Some citrus as well. The taste has a decent hop bitterness with a good mouthfeel. Overall this ipa would be good for someone who wants to get into this style.

A: The beer poured hazy light golden amber in color with a thin white head that slowly faded into lacy patterns of bubbles on the surface. A light amount of carbonation is visible.
S: There are aromas of citrus and pine resin hops in the nose with some hints of sweetness.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell with a mild amount of bitterness from the hops and also has a fair amount of malty sweetness with notes of caramel.
M: It feels medium-bodied and smooth on the palate. There is a medium amount of carbonation.
D: The beer is extremely easy to drink because of the good balance between bitterness and sweetness.

A great beer from a brewery I wish I could try more stuff from. Clearly the best of the mixed 12, it made me sad I only got to try three of these. Super hoppy, a nice high ABV to warm you up, and delicious. IPA's don't get much better than this. While it's no Cambridge House IPA, it's right up there with HopDevil as my favorite.

4.42/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Aroma: impresively floral; not only from complex hopping, but a nectar sweetness as well. Notably malty and spicy.
Appearance: one of the nicer head quality found in an IPA. Creamy, off white head. Tightly knit carbonation settled into a chuncky head that stayed forever. Color of deep copper to orange.
Taste: Aggresive hops overwhelms the nose. Tapers into a well balanced hop and malt flavors. Flavors intensify through the body. Finishes hot from the alcohol and appropriately bitter. Spiciness and citrus comes through from nose to finish.
Aftertaste: bitter and refreshing. Finish is not too dry. Leaves notes of alcohol, hop spiciness and mild sweetness.
Impression: active carbonation and alcohol tingles the palate. Very well balanced beer and strong from the time you pop the cap until its final sip.

This beer pours a hazy orange-brown hue, with two fingers of chunky, foamy off-white head, which leaves some cirrus-like lace around the glass as it fades from sight. It smells of biscuit and caramel malt, and some understated orange citrus and pine hops. The taste is mild citrus hops, and a blend of more predominant biscuit and caramel malts. The carbonation is mild, the body medium weight, and sugary smooth, with a light floral, bitter citrus hops finish.

Not as hoppy or bitter as I was expecting, but decently flavoured, and balanced.

Bottle: Poured a slightly hazy orangey color ale with a big white foamy head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus hops is well balance with big caramel malt. Taste is a mix between sweet malt with some citrus and bitter hops. Body is above average and the beer is not filtered which I appreciated.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Surprisingly dark amber with a good haze to it. Head retention is excellent, leaving plenty of lace as the glass empties.

Smell: The nose is all pine and fresh flowers, and what a nose it is. Tons of hop aroma with essentially no malt presence to muddle things up.

Taste/mouthfeel: Even parts semi-sweet crystal malts and floral, slightly herbal hops. The malt flavor is quickly taken out of the mix as hops begin to take over the palate, though they're never aggressively bitter. The floral character continues on through the finish, meeting a mild resiny bitterness that's surprisingly clean overall. The mouthfeel is fairly light and dry, though it almost reminds me of an amber.
