Nice hoppy smell. After the first sniff I knew I was in a great tasting IPA. It had a nice orange color. The taste was hoppy up front, then balanced out by a sweet malt taste. This went very nice with spicy and sweet black beans

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottled sample, from my notes - Aroma is delicious citrusy, floral and sweet. Color is deep golden with a very slight haze(pour carefully). Streams of fine bubbles with a small head and clinging lacing. Incredible flavor and balance of sweet malt and citrus-floral hops, spice, vanilla. Dry, hoppy looooong lingering finish with just enough malt. Stunning!

Great IPA. If you can get it on tap, do so. Great nose, head and mouth feel on this ale. Likely Cascade hops are the overwhelming aroma on this one.
Nice appearance as well as high alcohol makes this one a total winner.

I’ve been drinking this beer for years, and it is one of my favorites. Hops and citrus (grapefruit) are what you remember about the taste. I’ve poured so many of these, I just smile thinking about pouring another. Good with all kinds of foods, but lamb chops coated in peanut oil with kosher salt, crushed rosemary and green peppercorns is a must.

Great IPA, pours a nice golden amber, perfect amount of head, strong hops flavor. Smells of Orange and Pine, great in the bottle or on draft

Pours to a cloudy golden amber with a nice, one-finger head. Flavorful, with a nicely balanced level of carbonation.

this is a great beer. bitter and sweet at the same time. floral, but not in a sickening way. not too heavy to drink a few. strong enough to let you know you’ve had a few. always an excellent choice.

The quintessential IPA. Great aroma, balanced yet hoppy flavor, and, in my opinion, a perfect ABV for and IPA (7%). Perfect go-to beer due to its wide availability. One of my favorites!
