Bottled 2/17/2011.

A - Poured from brown 12 oz bottle to pint glass. A small 1/2 finger white head that faded quickly with some retention. The beer pours an amber golden color.

S - The first aroma I picked up was hops: pine, earthen, floral, and a bit of citrus. However, the malt caramel was equally as strong with a caramel toast. A little malt forward for an AIPA.

T - Just like the nose the hops start immediately and your senses pick up the pine, earthen, floral, and a bit of citrus. As the flavor develops a mild to medium bitterness presents itself. The malt starts to overwhelm the palette half way through the beer, a trait that doesn't fade. Toasted caramel syrupy character. Too much caramel, in my opinion.

M - Medium carbonation. A syrupy flavor that transitions to a dry finish.

O - Overall, better than average though too malty and not balanced for my preference.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

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!

Picked up a 12 oz. bottle of this today in NYC to help my quest for the Top 100 Beers of Fame...this is my personal #99. Bottles on date of 12/26/11, poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a - Pours a somewhat transparent orange color with two fingers of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Lots of lacing left on the glass and one inch of head left throughout drinking it.

s - Smells of citrus hops, fruity malts, pale malts, caramel malts, and light pine hops. Nice, but more malts than I was expecting.

t - Tastes of caramel malts, citru hops, fruity malts, pine hops, and pale malts. Light bready and biscuit malts as well. Again, very malty, moreso even than the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink.

o - Overall I thought this was a good beer, but had a much larger malt backbone than I was expecting, or really want, in an IPA. Easy to drink and I liked the nose, a beer I'd have again but not when I was looking for a hoppy beer.

What a great find! This is one of those rare beers that competes with the likes of Russian River's stacked IPA lineup. It so nice to drink a great IPA with outstanding mouth feel such as this.

Nice deep color with a good hop aroma. Not sure if they are using hop extract but it does have that character. Taste has more lingering bittering hops than say a Pliny but nothing offensive.

Hop heads unite!
