This is what a modern American IPA is all about.

12oz bottle. Decent white head with some lacing left on the side of the glass. Just the right amount of carbonation. Floral, grapefruit, and pine on the nose. Really nice piney scent from the hops. The taste is where this beer really comes through. Very smooth and well balanced with a perfect amount of bitterness for an IPA. There is some room for improvement here, but I couldnít tell you where. Very good, one I will buy again.

This is the kind of beer that gives the east coast a bad name. Itís called an IPA, but there is close to no hop flavor or aroma. On the west coast this would just be called a pale ale, and as such it isnít terrible. Itís clear, clean, and easy-drinking, and I generally liked it, but it wasnít an IPA.

Wow. This one surprised me. Given the rating (3.23 at present), I almost don't order it. But I'm glad I did - this is an awesome IPA! This was bottled poured. Small but present head. Decent lacing. Color is hard to say given the lighting. But the flavor is great. Reminds me of a an American pale ale (viz. Sierra Nevada). Not as hoppy as many IPAs but still hoppy - great for me. I'm now a huge fan.

Slightly metallic aftertaste. This is not a top IPA. Of you want a Harpoon, I would recommend the Harpoon Summer.

Very nice, easy drinking IPA. Hops, malt, balance and mouthfeel. Another one to come back to when available.
This was a very welcome surprise at the Arlington Race Track in TX. I had prepared myself for and evening of BMC or Shiner and there was this!

Poured from a bottle. Had a rich gold color. Had a hoppy piney scent. Nice Hoppy taste. Light in the mouth, clean taste with a slight bitter finish. Good beer. I would drink it again.
