An American IPA.Agressive use of fruity American hops is what this beer is all about. An intense hop bitterness, followed by a balancing hop flavor and full hop aroma. Notes of citrus and grapefruit may be detected.. This is our hoppiest beer.

bigda83 (572) - Jamestown, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Pours a clear amber color with notmuch head. From draft. Iím guessing maybe the keg was old because this was far from hoppy. It was malty and bitter. Only aroma/taste I got was soapy dirty dishwater and heavily bitter. Body was light and texture was thin, with a long bitter finish. I hope this isnít their best offering....

Dogbrick (10033) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear orange-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes quickly to a film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of fruit, hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of floral hops, fruit and caramel malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

ben4321 (5087) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Location: Sampled at Living Social Beerfest, 12/6/2013, as Empire Crusader IPA

Aroma: The nose is mild hops, grass and floral, some caramel, citrus, and earthy notes
Appearance: Pours a clear copper color with a small head and some lace
Flavor: It is lightly sweet and light-medium bitter, not super hoppy, but a nice hop flavor
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, with a clean feel, and a light dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this one was a decent example of a more British style IPA. Itís not close to being a hop bomb, but it is certainly a drinkable offering.
