This big, rich IPA features Simcoe hops which give it both a fruity, piney hop nose and a clean, ringing bitterness. IN-between, the malt flavor is slightly caramel for a touch of malt sweetness. This IPA is well-balanced and very expressive with hops.

Dont seek out but dont avoid either if offered. Has nice grapefruit carmel popcorn taste combination, but it falls short of the leading ipa’s because it has a thin body which makes it seem overcarbonated, giving it an unpleasant sharpness in the finish. Good not great, story of Big Sky’s life.

can - bought in Jackson WY - drank in the Tetons. Terrific, simple IPA. Especially fond since I had 2 at my campsite up in the Tetons. Made for a perfect end to epic hiking

hfmejias (1266) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2016
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear, orange in color, nice white head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is of hops (pine and citrus fruits) mixed with a touch of malts and some booze. Taste is hoppy but very well balanced with malts. Very good IPA, well crafted.

Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2015
With the growing number of Anerican IPAs being available in Australia this ranks very highly. A good orange hue in the pour and mellow notes of pine resin. There is a bit of same same with the simcoe and amarillo hop flavour but these are well balanced by the malty finish. A really good go to IPA.

BOTTLE. Hazy orange to brown with thick off white head.. Strong biscuit & caramel malt nose.. Thin hoppy start that goes to a subtle bitterness in the middle finishing with a thick hit of caramel & biscuit malts.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel

Has the right combination of malty sweetness and hops to make it very drinkable. Its how I like an IPA.

seymour (1876) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Poured a 12oz brown bottle into a nucleated schooner glass, a clear medium orange amber colour with thin but persistent white foam and lace. Rich caramel malt sweetness supporting even bigger American hop bill: grapefruit, woodsy, with dank resin (Simcoe?), tangy sweet citrus and overripe apricots (Crystal?). Lingering bitter bite blending well with fruity English ale yeast esters. Definitely a hops-forward balanced, but more tasty and nicely layered than many competing A-IPAs. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth, well-rounded mouthfeel, nice alcoholic strength, long-lasting bittersweet and fruity aftertastes. Very tasty.

Pours a nice clear amber from a bottle. Aroma of tropical fruit, pine-y. Flavor similar, rather bitter. Good beer.
