IPA have been my favorite for about 3 years now. When I first started drinking microbrews I gradually moved toward brews with more hops until I found my first IPA. Wow, it was intense! I still have a special place in my heart for them, and this one is my favorite of those I have had.

Pours a clear light orange with a good, thick, off-white head. Aroma is a perfect hop bomb. Little to no malts - this one is citrusy, resiny hops all the way through. A bit of honey and brown sugar counter in the flavor, and wow is this delicious. Full-bodied, big mouthfeel, with just a ton of hops. Wonderfully refreshing while still very flavorful. Fantastic - one of my new favorite IPAs.

Nice US hop aroma, all grapefruit and citrus. More grapefruit and then a heavy malt. Sort of oily or fat, but in a good way. Drinkable

Beautiful dark copper pour with a creamy head. Piney, dried fruit aroma. Lightly sweet flavor with lots of citrus peel bitterness. Great balance.

The gold medal winner of the 2008 Great American Beer Festival. Out of 104 IPAs, it took first place. Enough said.

Bottle. Pours a clear, bright amber, medium off-white head. Grapefruit, sweet malt and citrus dominate the aroma. Hops, citrus and a touch of caramel comes across strong in the flavor. Bitter and dry finish.

SorenE (168) - , NEW ZEALAND - MAY 25, 2009

mrhoppy (1289) - Santa Clara, California, USA - MAY 19, 2009
This is like the other style IPA that I don’t lean towards. Beautiful complex floral aroma. Creamy marshmallow palate. Not to bitter. Where’s the malt? The caramel? Delicious but lacking. If they tweaked this in a different way.... Epic!

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Draft from Brouwer’s. Pours a clear golden with a bubbly cream head and a nice hoppy aroma. A little sweet, but balenced well with a tiny bitterness. Clean finish makes this a very drinkable and well balanced IPA.
