This is a very nice IPA. The hops aroma is superb. It lingers on after the beer is swallowed. A mixture of citrus and spicy floral aromas. A mix that I have tasted in no other brew. The malt is balanced against the bitterness nicely but this beer says HOPS.

Good India. Incredibly citrusy, slightly piney aroma. Fairly pale, with assertive bitterness and hop flavor. Solid malt base stays out of the way of the lupulin. Good beer, great brewery.

This is a super beer. Maybe my standard for an easy drinking clean IPA. Appearance amber and cloudy. Head chewy white. Aroma all flowery hops and citrus. Balanced, leaning toward bitter with no obvious sweetness.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 16 oz can. Dated 4/28/14. Pours a beautiful orangish tan color 1 finger head. Color matches the trim on the can. Love when that happens. Tons of juicy citrus on the nose. Slight sweetness. Taste is super smooth. Still one of the best IPAs available. Terrific combo of bitterness and sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Well balanced. Great hop taste with the perfect amount of malt to keep it balanced. Along the line of Victory's Hop Devil but with a little more citrus/pine hop presence.

The beer that got me into Bells. Incredible foamy head, outstanding balance and a unique flavor that separates it from the pack. A must try for anyone who likes IPAís. When I head to northern minnesota itís the only descent non-import available, and i donít mind.

One of my favorite IPAís. Smells like a well balanced IPA should, citrus and pine. Itís really smooth, without an overpowering bitterness at any point. If youíre a fan of IPAís you need to try this.

Nice lighter IPA (i consider this more of a good pale ale). Reviewing this as a hoppy pale ale (not an IPA), I like the dryness of this beer and how that helps highlight the citric/floral notes of the hops in the beer. Iíve had the beer in bottle and on tap and prefer the tap as the cleaness and crisp hops come through better. This is a very nice pale ale!
Having brewed this beer as a homebrewer, I think it would improve with alittle more variety of hops (though love cents).

Great IPA, nice hoppy aroma. Poured real well, head and lacing excellent.Dry hoppy flavor, with a little citrus ? Nice light orange coloring slightly cloudly. When the bottling is on itís hard to beat this beer.
