Wonderful beer. This isn’t a hop bomb and it isn’t 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. It’s good!

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I very easy drinking IPA. Nothing stands out; could easily be mistaken for an APA. A serviceable IPA, but it's obvious this recipe has been around for 20 years. Back then, it was probably a unique beer...today, not so much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Several and Dave and Jess’ wedding. Pours a clean orange with a thin, dissipating off-white head. Nose of caramel, mild citrus and apricot. Medium body, quite a bitter finish and a somewhat metallic after taste.

Face it, we all have friends that still think Heineken and Corona are premium beers. If you find yourself at a cookout with this kind of crowd, Harpoon IPA is a fine choice. It’s a somewhat scaled down IPA, with the typical IPA flavors, just not as strong as bitter as its stronger (and to most of us, better) cousins. This means you get to enjoy a decent beer without frightening off the Coors Light crowd. Not the best IPA out there, but it definitely has its place.

The aroma smells so faint,And thin.It pours a golding color.It gives a one finger head.The taste the hops has a weak flavor,And the body has a bland taste as well.It don’t has a creamy taste at all.This don’t taste like an IPA at all.Samuel Adams double agent IPL taste way better then this Harpoon IPA,And they other better IPA out there.
