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.

Decent beer, a good choice in main stream bars with no micros. I think its a little better than its ratings here, but certainly not stellar.

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.

Great colour, overall palate is good too, goes down smooth. I prefer it ice cold which gives off a great taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a very light copper/gold with a small head. Had a nice, hoppy aroma. Tasted good and pretty bitter with a high level of carbonation. Picked up on a slight minty flavor. I picked it second in a blind test against the IPAís from Dogfish Head 60 Minute (1st), Goose Island (3rd) and Avery (4th).
