This is an exceptional IPA. It gives you a malty sweetness which I was not expecting. Most IPA's stop at the citrus character of the brew. This gave you a nice experience.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy Golden Amber with about 3/4 of a finger worth of white head. Piney Hops aroma at first, which fades into a more floral hop aroma as the head dissappates. Carbonated Hoppy bitter flavor up front, followed by a mild but noticeable floral hop flavor, with a balanced hoppy bitter finish. Bitterness fades away and leaves you with a nice floral taste that lingers till your next sip. I feel that this is a well balanced IPA, not too much or too little of any one thing. Very drinkable.

This is a beautifully balance IPA with tons of citrus hop flavor and the perfect amount of residual malt character. The day they distribute to Southern California will be a good day.

One Of My favorite Pale Aleís.
Pours A Beautiful Copper Color With A Creamy Head A Little Over An Inch High, Very Citrusy Floral Aroma. Almost Like Being In A Flower Garden That Is Also Growing Hops. Very Crisp Dry Taste. Very Smooth And Easy To Drink. A Hoppy Bitterness Taste Almost Makes My Mouth Pucker.
Definately Worth Trying

Honestly, this is one of the best IPAs that I have had in a while... I just canít believe that I didnít buy it when I first saw it. It has a wonderfully strong hop character with some citrus that is balanced by a perfect amount of malts. I havenít had the chance to pour it in a glass yet but it produces a nice bit of head after just popping the bottle :)

Poured with a thin white head, decent lacing, over a hazy yellow-amber body. Aroma is floral and earthy hops over a crackerlike malt backbone. Flavor is a fantastic balance of earthy hops and crackerlike malt, with a lingering earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Body is medium-plus, with a velvety soft carbonation. Alcohol is exceptionally well-hidden. Easily one of my favorita American Pale Ales.

This is one of my all around favorite IPAs, pours a nice dark gold with a white head. Smells floral, citrusy and piny. This ipa tastes amazing, perfectly balanced in my opinion. Looking forward to this being in New York State any day now, been waiting for the day for a while and will be very happy to be enjoying this ipa year round.

No mincing words here, if you are in the mood for an IPA, this is the beer you want. Good body and mouthfeel. They did not forget about the malt bill like some IPAís. The hop finish is prominent, but somehow never unbalanced or harsh. Most IPAís (and Iím a big fan) have moments where the finish gets to be too much of a one note songÖ that has never happened with this beer. For me, this is the yardstick other IPSís are judged by.
