This tastes like an IPA we have back home in the land of crack smoking mayors called Keats. We also call it by its other name: Shit. And this too is pretty damn crappy. I would just call the style A as thereís nothing IPA about it. Swilled at a roadside Steak & Lube somewhere in Ohio. Confused why so many raters below me call it "weak" and "meh" & yet give it a score above 3.0.

Poured from draft, clear copper, grassy nose. Smooth on the palate with a slight hop bitter finish, grassy hop flavors with a mildly effervescent tongue ender.

Poured from bottle into pint glass: Pours golden with a two finger white head. Aroma floral and malty, taste is a bit sweet up front and then the hops kick in. Itís a little too malty for the amount of hops. Medium bodied and easy to drink, this is a good basic IPA. A little bitter on the finish.

Draft. Aroma is a fresh hoppy. Appearance is a bronze coloring with a frothy, white head. Taste is sweet then the hops come in, pretty lightly. I would have liked more. I actually think my burps after drinking it taste hoppier. Palate is a little bitter, but not bad for an ipa. Overall, a pretty weak ipa.... Could have been a lot better if they left more hops in

Wonderful beer. This isnít a hop bomb and it isnít trying to be. It is an easy drinking, high quality IPA. Literally nothing bad to say about Harpoon. Tastes great and you can drink a ton without even realizing it. Nice hop aroma and bitter taste. Perfect example of an IPA. Cheers!

Aroma has a balanced smell of bread malt and piny hops. Flavor is hoppy with some citrus notes. Itís good!

Goud, mat, weinig tot geen kraag. wat ranzige geur in de neus. afdronk licht zurig, gewoon niet lekker.
