Flew this puppy (and a couple others) back home with me from Virginia. This is the first beer I've had from Tröegs, and as soon as I tasted it, I regretted not picking anything up sooner. I know I've at least seen JavaHead somewhere before. Next time.

L: Perfectly clear orange amber body, no haze at all. Head was a short-lived little show. No lacing, not even a lingering film of foam to speak of. Huh. This is the first one I drank from a glass. Wasn't expecting it to look so boring.

S: I probably should have reviewed it sooner. The hops have become a touch oxidized. Regardless, heavy pine is the keystone aroma. Around it swirls mango, orange, lemon, plum, caramel, barley and quince.

T: Tastes very similar to Hop Ottin' from Anderson Valley, but cleaner, fresher and hoppier. Pretty similar to Torpedo as well, but I like Torpedo better. Very typical flavor profile for an IPA. Definitely a West Coast style hop schedule.

F: Very smooth and creamy, but it needs more bite for an IPA. It has some. But it needs more. It's not crisp.

O: Very decent flagship ale. Definitely would like to try some more brews from these guys.

This was a surprising beer for me! I didn't realize it was brewed next door in Hershey, PA. I ordered it at a restaurant with a less than average beer menu, and it surprised me! It was a great, hoppy American IPA with a nice sweetness to it. I had been kayaking on the Delaware River all day, so I decided I would try it again later, thinking maybe I loved it because any beer would be awesome after a long day of paddling. So I bought 6 bottles today to try it again and I love it! It doesn't have a great look or smell, but packs a great IPA taste. Multiple hop varieties in it...and at $10/six pack it is a great choice. I believe it is 7.5% abv. Overall an above average IPA, from Troegs BC.

Had it at my college's class of 1968 50th reunion. Aroma of hops with slight citrus undertones. Light amber color. Good body and tartness/bitterness.

Love the smell, taste and boldness that this beer carries. It feels like a light beer, but packs quite a nice punch. Overall, my favorite beer!

Picked up a single at Belmont Party Supply in Dayton, Ohio. I love that place.

Strong start with stubborn white head and slightly hazy amber body. Nose is citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. As it should be. Legitimate structured hop attack. Some malt balance but clearly outnumbered. Close to withering but not offensive. Pretty easy to quaff at 7.5 octane as well.

The color was a light orange. The aroma had hops and some citrus. The taste and feel is where it lost me. Not particularly memorable.
