Is insanely dry hopped with Centennial Hops. This pale copper colored ale has a flowery hop aroma and a bold hop bitterness. Hop Heads Only Please!

12oz bottle. Pours a light amber with an off white head. Mild hop aromas with notes of citrus and pine. Nothing over the top but a pretty decent IPA overall.

chinchill (3590) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 28, 2015
undated 12 oz bottle served in pint glass. {re-sampled and reviewed on 10/2011 with a sample that was significantly hazy). Pours a nearly clear amber with a 1-finger off-white head. Head has good durability. A - A clear aroma of citrus fruit rising from the table as I pour this beer. Upon closer examination, I find a sweet, complex aroma that is both fruity and floral. There’s a malt backbone here too. T - largely as indicated by the aroma, this is a relatively sweet IPA. I’m sure the hop flavor will be too light for some, but this is the best Amer. IPA I’ve come across for use as an introductory IPA for those used to less hoppy beers. Still, adequate strength of flavor and great quality in this well-crafted blend of hops and malt. Has a substantial hop flavor and aroma, yet has no hop ’bite’; nor is it overly bitter. Perhaps a bit timid for style, but adequate hop flavor for production of a lasting hoppy aftertaste. M - body is a bit light but this is relatively smooth for an IPA and has a nice dryness in the finish. Good carboation. O - excellent choice as a sessionable and fruity IPA. Refreshing; not challenging.

From a bottle. Pour is medium amber with a one-finger white head. Aroma is fairly weak, vaguely citrus. Surprisingly thick mouthfeel for an IPA, with a hoppy taste characteristic of the style. Finish is smooth with a touch of bitterness.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear Amber color with light, creamy off-white head. Aroma is citrus, floral and mild herbal notes. Taste is similar with moderate bitterness and the citrus and herbal notes presenting themselves. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, slightly oily texture, lively carbonation and a dry finish.

badwhale (408) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours a slightly orange-ish copper with a decent head. Not too much nose. Mouthfeel on the watery side, and while the hop content is good, it’s not overwhelming. Meh.

Very nice ipa. Not overly hoppy but a nice subtle balance of hops and flavor. Would be perfect in the summer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lovely amber pour into snifter. Piney aroma, balanced flavor although a subtle bitterness that stays in the mouth for some time after. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joejames (412) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle to English pint glass. Pours hazy amber orange, suspended particles, two finger white head, plenty of lacing and good retention. Aroma of grapefruit, pine and grain. Taste is mostly bitter with a nice biscuit sweetness. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes bitter with notes of grapefruit, lemon rind, flowers, blackberry and bread. A solid session IPA.

fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Nice looking brownish amber appearance, pretty good fresh hop aroma, piney and citrus with some malty balance. Taste brings forth more maltiness along with some bitter hops - citrus, pine and grapefruit. Ok but more malty than I prefer my IPA’’s.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dark orange amber color, off-white head cover, bands of lace. Taste is caramel malt that adds solid hops in the palate, both sides moving in tandem through a long finish. Solid brew.
