I found this at a pub in a small town in South Carolina, apparently itís only available on the Atlantic coast. Sad for me, as I was on a business trip and live in the midwest, where itís not available. Outstanding IPA, by far the best Iíve ever had. Nice citrus and floral taste and aroma. Perfect bar drink while snacking and playing darts.

This is hands down on of my personal favorite IPAs. It was also my introduction to IPAs a few years back. A wonderful bitter citrus flavor that is just amazing to my tastes.

A staple up here in New Hampshire. Out of all the IPAís Iíve tried this one consistently pleases. It has a pleasant hoppy bite with a crispness that is hard to define. Itís quite likely you may kill a 12 pack of these in a sitting and wonder where they all went. Iíve only had a couple beers better than this, but nothing in this category.

An excellent IPA; compares well with Hop Devil; Harpoon beers superior to Sam Adams beers when comparing the Boston breweries.

Great IPA. But still falls short of the hop devil.
