Super IPA. Sweet aroma with IPA-like hops. Clear golden amber color. Smooth drinking. Medium nody. Hoppy bitterness, but a little sweet with no lingering bitter aftertaste.

About time I tried this i guess. Aroma isnít very strong, very fruity and sweet. Body is amber with a creamy white head. Taste isnít overly bitter, rather low ibuís for an IPA, but itís nice.

Really nice IPA. Looks nice, clear amber. Aroma is great, of hops and citrus. Medium bodied and smooth. Bitter finish from nice hops. Slightly metalic. Great IPA!

Great hoppy aroma and nice amber pour. Hops up front with a touch of malt to make a good balance. Nice finish that leaves you wanting more.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A complex but drinkable beer. It sparkles on the tongue with a balanced flavor of wildflowers/clover. Light amber color is appealing, and the foam is lacey and light. I wish I could have it every day.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is my absolute favorite beer. Bright hoppiness at start, nice smooth transition to subtle malty middle with a faint citrus finish. Smooth and crisp, very refreshing and drinkable. I cannot say enough about this beer. As IPAs go I say this is the best I have ever had.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very nice india pale ale. Standard coloration for the style. Aroma of citrus but also something that is close to a nuttiness. Flavor starts out citrus sweet then moves to a citrus-pine bitter then moves back to a sort of mild maltiness at the finish. One of the better IPAs Iíve had. This is why the IPA is one of my favorite styles.
