Not too hoppy at all for an American IPA. Well-balanced taste with subtle falvours of orange and copper. Very drinkable but not overly exciting.

On tap, it has an excellent citrus aroma. Itís very lively will good carbonation. There is an excellent citrus taste as this is an outstanding IPA.

aroma of sweet pine; pours a dark cloudy gold; flavor is a bold bitter but works as a session beer also. I love this beer, it has a great flavor and the hop resins linger on and on. This and the New Glarus IPA make living in the midwest alot less depressing.

Nice earthy hop aroma. Not the citrusy, grapefruity, Cascade aroma that is oh so common in American IPA's. Good deep golden color. Light carbonation and a pillowy white head. Sturdy malt base, earthy hop flavor. I think this is a nice balanced beer. An English style IPA, not American. It won't blow your head off with hops, but that's nice once and a while! Well done!

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice amber color with a thick foamy white head, very appetizing-looking. Aroma is full of fresh hops, but not overly-hopped. Balanced and very drinkable. Especially great for the price... I think that this may be a regularly-stocked item for me. =)

yellow orange, slightly hazy liquid. pours a white yellowish silky head. the aromascape is very standard IPA with added ginger sweetness, very well done. this is a prime example of an IPA, very balanced but not surprising.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, golden color with minimal white head. Aroma is nice mix of hops (citrus, pine & floral) and malt. This sort of reminds me of a weak 90 Minute IPA in both taste and aroma. Taste is similar with a nice citrus flavor along with some sweet malt and a bitter finish. The body is light to medium. Overall this beer is very clean and smooth but I prefer something a little more substantial.

It had a cloudy yellow/orange color with a small head. You can definitely taste the hops. It had a nice finish.

Bottle. A good IPA, the bitterness was on the lighter end of what I feel a IPA should have, but the hops were all flavor and aroma. The initial taste there is a slight hint of coffee. I might have had a bad bottle but there was a slight taste of wet cardboard, like a oxidized beer.
