Pours a clear amber, with a fruity hoppy aroma. This is a very smooth enjoyable IPA. Lots of flavor and you have to love those hops.

An old reliable. My sister lives right near the brewery and has gotten for me before. Medium to light pour and mouth feel.

On tap. Hoppy flavor, on the piney side. Rather bitter, not very pleasant though. Below average IPA.

12 oz bottle. Not the most impressive IPA, but not godawful. Hoppy, but not much else. Average appearance and palate. Passable.

I donít like to go into details about the nose and flavors and so on...many of you already cover those things. This is a very good beer. You can drink it right when you wake up and feel classy. If you consider yourself a Beer lover, youíll like this...

12 oz bottle. Pours yellow color, typical pale alt with decent head. I found this more malty than hoppy. I found it to very bland for an IPA.

Fruity without a harsh bitter aftertaste. Nice hoppiness (dry hopped), without too many IBUís.

ChrisFields (98) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Appearance- Pours amber gold, single finger head dissipates quickly. Aroma- floral bouquet and light citrus. Taste- Orange peel with a rounded light hops bitterness. Palate- Thin and relatively smooth for an IPA Overall- Meh, decent offering but pretty tame. Easy drinking starter IPA maybe.

I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. Iíve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh. Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

Super hoppy. The epitome of hop. Good for what it is, but itís not my deal.
