This is the most underrated IPA on the market. I buy, sell and try beer every week. I just had a IPA tasting at my house with 11 IPA’s last night and this one came in 3rd place overall. I placed it in 2nd with Founders Harvest at #1 and Bell’s Two Hearted at # 3. The tasting included Harvest Ale, Two Hearted, MA IPA, Lakefront, Victory, Stone, Boulder Beer, Great Divide, Dogfish Head, Great Lakes and Barley Island. Message me for the full results of our Hop Off!

My Bottom Line:
Piney hop resins lather the honeyed cereals, planting a vigorous coniferous and leafy bitterness that concludes this solid American IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the hazy blondish-amber.
-This is balanced in its intensity.
-The body is quite nourishing and contains a few dextrins too many for my tastes in the style.
-Orangey fruitiness also stems from the hop bill, a citrusy character which seems to latch on the sweet cereals throughout.

@Indiana Beerfest-12oz bottle-pours a thin white head that laces and yellow color. Aroma is northwest hops-lemon/pine (Amarillo & cascade?). taste is dry, northwest hops-lemon/pine (Amarillo & cascade?)-some bitter, some light malt. OK/mild carbonation.

this definately has an interesting hop character. first of all they are upfront enough as i think an IPA should be but they have an almost ’dirty’ flavor, very savory, it reminds me of meat (???). this is good but the pale ale is nearly as hoppy but much cleaner.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of bdigi66. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin white head. The aroma is moderately sweet orange citrus hops with a hint of the caramel malt. The flavor is moderately sweet caramel malt with a nice amount of citrus hops with an orange/grapefruit emphasis. Medium bodied with a crisp clean mouthfeel. This could serve as a nice summer session beer.

Thanks to Stfun. Amber color. Smell of citrus, malt, hops, caramel and pine. Taste of malt, caramel, citrus and hops. A tad bit watered down. Still a nice one!

A nice settle brew with a good potential. A good brew from a local. Has a good citrus aroma with a hearty balance of hops. Could be a little hoppier but the price here is good. Top 5 on my list from Mad Anthony’s.

Thanks for the bottle, dansting. The body is dark amber. The aroma is classic grapefruit and toast. There is also some peanut character. The taste has some peanut shells and grapefruit. A nice finish of toasted bread. A good IPA.

Bottle. Poured a cloudy copper color with a medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma is very strong with a strong citrus/grapefruit presence. Mouthfeel is fine. Flavor is bitter. Very strong pine taste to it, to a fault. Not a bad beer, but not as good as the aroma led me to believe it would be.
