I wasnít expecting much out of this because of itís wide distribution and the tendency for the hops to drop out of these things if they donít move through any stage of the distribution process quick enough, and I have to say that Iím pleasantly surprised. Clear golden orange with no head, the aroma is bright and full of sticky icky hop cones, aromas of chinook grapefruit, flavor is citrus hop rind, the chinooks really dominate the flavor and aroma. Very nice affordable IPA here... from a brewery thatís working pretty hard to be responsible in its environmental practices none the less.

I had this at Fast Eddies Bon Aire. Pours gold with a white head. Taste pine, citrus, earthy. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle on Sunday 29th May 2016, while on holiday in California. Amber/orange coloured brew, the head a white wispy affair. Nice hop blend, refreshing and bitter: liked it.

A new lawnmower and a new lawnmower beer. It fits well in the cup holder. I suppose 70 IBUís aint what it used to be. Yup, solid and chinooky in both nose and body. Cascade tone at finish. The 12 pack was decently priced and lasted longer than I thought it would. Equally good in glass or straight from bottle. With food or alone. None too shabby, but it is in with the crowd now. Glad to see NB in NYState.

This is a decent IPA that you can pretty much get anywhere. Itís citrus and pine notes are pleasant, although it can be a bit bitter at times. I had it paired with fish tacos, which didnít really suit the beer well. I would go with something that doesnít accentuate subtle spices. Overall though, the hoppy aroma, earth yeast, golden pour with a nice frothy head, are good. In the end the flavors are perhaps a tad too uninventive, but I canít find much fault there. Itís a decent IPA, one of the most drinkable, it just isnít great.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2016 A crystal clear dark golden yellow on the pour with a medium white lasting head. Aroma of pine and citrus hops, fruity notes and malt. Taste same as aroma pine citrus hops bitterness fruity and a good pale malt flavor. A smooth crisp and fresh palate. Finish has a good pine citrus hops bitterness with a good pale malt sweetness for balance. Overall a very well done balances and flavorful brew.
