COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Quickly becoming a new favorite, this IPA has great floral notes, while being smoother than the Iron Springs IPA. Big & Bold, yet smooth & mellow.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
22oz bottled March 4th, 2013. Straightforward "West Coast" aromas and flavors of big orange citrus, citrus oil and grapefruit peel, with a hint of honey malt. A big, grapefruit like bitterness drives the finish. Solid. Nice bitterness. Good grapefruit/citrus flavors. Worth trying for a NorCal IPA. Overall, I would drink again. Good first impression of Iron Springs. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Beerathon (1164) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2012
I don’t agree with the 89 score on here at all. This IPA didn’t have much of a hoppy aroma and the hops came through far too grassy in the flavor. It was okay, but not good.
