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!

orange/rust color, white head, somewhat lasting. aroma is of strong sweet pine and light citrus. malts are fairly subdued being lightly doughy. flavor is heavy on pine, quite bitter, malts again are subdued. this rivals fresh avery hog heaven for the pine quality. this beer assaults your palate with layer after delicious layer of pine. itís maybe a bit one dimensional in that aspect, but i think itís fantastic. I must have a very fresh bottle. I can see this dropping from what Iíve rated it to a 3.2 with a couple or more months on the shelf. get it while itís fresh and itís quite a treat.

When I smelled this beer, I thought, "Wow, this really smells like grapefruit." Then, when I tasted it, I thought, "WOW! This REALLY tastes like grapefruit." The thing is, I hate grapefruit, but really enjoyed this beer. Thereís a sweetness in that really evens it out - kind of like putting sugar on a grapefruit. Mad Anthonyís take on the IPA is quite different than most. It doesnít have that overbearing aftertaste that some IPAs can have. Like most Mad Anthonyís, this one goes down smooth, smooth, smooth. Nothing exceptional to note about the color or pour, but this is an IPA and it tastes great. Iíd like to sit out on the porch with this one during the summer because drinking it indoors on a bitter winter doesnít do it justice.

Bottle acquired in a trade. Pours a deep copper to amber color with a thin but lasting foamy white head. Smells of yogurt, grass, citrus, and lemon peel. Tastes bitter with some nice hoppy notes dominating the tasting. Nice finish and mouthfeel.

Thanks to my Secret Santa for this beer. Poured a cloudy amber with a semi-creamy off-white head. Great aroma of grapefruit, pine, a touch of lemon. Taste is bitter pine, touch of grapefruit, slightest bit of toffee, some lemony acidity. Bitter dry finish. Pretty clean and delcious. Quite a pleasant surprise.

I dig this beer. Iím usually all about some Two Hearted or Alpha King and this one is going to fit right in there as one of my usual IPA choices along side those two. Sweet and sticky aroma accompanies the golden color of this beer. Great bitter bite up front that follows through to a bitter yet sweet finish.

I had it out of a bottle, poured a clear amber hue with a slight fizzy head. You have a slight citrus aroma and taste very pleasantly mild hoppy.

Bottle. Lovely IPA aroma. Dark copper with light head. Very drinkable. Not to bitter. Would be able to drink lots. Reminds me of a lighter hoppyum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JStax (2854) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2014
Poured on draft. Hazy blonde with a big white head. Aroma has big tropical fruits and pine. Fairly sweet and fruity. Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Really solid.
