Amber in color with fluffy white headLight hops and grain in the nose. Plenty of grapefruit and bitterness with a solid malt backbone giveing it almost a christmas cookie charactor. Easy to drink.

Nice drinking mild IPA. Sure I like a lot of hops, but sometimes you a mild hops presence is fine. Better on tap. Nice nose and golden amber color. Some hops upfront. Relaxing malty character. Easy to drink many.

Very mild IPA, gentle hop aroma. Decent carbonation balance. Light golden color, thin head. Mild bitterness with flavor blossoming further into it. Mid-finish o.k., but no particular complexity. A good "beginner’s" IPA. (on tap, Whisky’s, Boston)

This has a wonderful, floral aroma and amber color. However, it is a tad on the bland side for an IPA. The hops don’t sing as much as I would like in an IPA either. But, all this aside, it is a good overall beer.

Hint of apricot and some floral hops. Light amber, clear - small white lacing head. Medium carb and body. Sweetish hops start with hint of apricot. Nice bittering and some nuttiness. Not bad from draught.

What’s Beer Connoisseur Magazine and what are they smoking? Smells like Hallertauers in here?! This is a Pilsner that’s graduated from kindergarten to third grade or a flunked, gelding IPA. It’s growing on me but it neither has the oxidized hops and soft body of the Old World examples of the style and not any kind of keen sharpness and brutal fresh dry-hopping of the West Coast style. It’s too fruity. Damn, beer shouldn’t piss someone off. Mies, this one’s for you...

Medium hoppiness, very crisp with a smooth body.
