Spruce aroma and hop flavor. Very well "balanced" ipa. Palate leaves you wanting another and another and another.

A great tasting IPA. The hops were well represented without being in your face. I love a good IPA and I will admit that I’m still warming up to them. This is one I could, and will, have again.

I liken this beer to the white water IPA from Boston beer co. Not as bitter maybe stronger bodied. I am biased as these are both favorites in my household. They are bitter beers with a depth of flavors at the same time they manage to be refreshing and clean.

Love the taste and and hoppy character coupled with a low ABV. It’s not often you find the two together.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
What a great IPA. Pours a light Amber or a dark yellow. Delicious hoppy flavor with a sharp aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Citrusy, piney, resinous, and floral hop aromas. Gold, with low retaining, white head. Predominantly bitter, but well-balanced and lifted by malty tones that come through at the end. Medium-full bodied, with average carbonation, and a long, bitter finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden with a fluffy white head. Huge hop profile in taste and aroma with a prominent enough bready malt note.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a really nice IPA. Very hoppy, with a pale yellow appearance and healthy head. Hops are pine heavy but there is a nice, mellow citrus aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light amber, with a decent bit of foam on top. The aroma was classic citrusy American hops. Tastewise, the bitterness of the hops was clearly evident without domineering everything else, especially not the balance of the juicy sweet maltiness that made the beer wickedly easy to drink.

Growler thanks to hopscotch. Clear amber in color with white head. Fruity/florally hop aromas. The taste follows suit with grapefruit and caramel malt flavors. A little too dry and underachieving for me. I would like to see an imperial version of this ale..
