COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ready to buck convention? We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from Englad to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful - American style. We've added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character. Hop on, hold tight, and enjoy the ride!

Fruity and citrus hop explosion when smelling from the glass. Hops play dominant flavor profile. Hints of pine, citrus, and apricot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My favorite IPA. Aroma of citrus and pine. Nice bitter citrus start with enough malt on the back end for balance. Consistently awesome.

weaselkenievil (1234) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
Bottle out in town, forget where. Definitely drunk and making little sense again. Stuff about the dandy and the beano, Denis Irwin vs Roberto Carlos. What I did get, I enoyed this and want another soon. This was early 2012, not had one since. Dumbass. Poured a slightly hazy golden colour with a small to medium white head. Aroma has hops, pine needles. Flavour is smooth and citrus hop stuff. Nice!

Pershing (466) - Garland, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2014
Pours a clear orange color with lots of visual carbonation. the head is a dense cream and lasting until the end. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. Silky smooth on the palate with an excellent amount of hop bitterness. Refreshing with a slight lingering finish from the hops. A perfect example of an American IPA. One of the best India Pale Ales in America.

Bottle pour. Pours a clear copper with a white head of foam. Floral and fruity. Sweet and hoppy. Medium carbonation.

rumproasts (2596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2014
bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. This is what I think of when I think of a solid Colorado IPA. Light body with huge resinous hops. Excellent.

Gvaughn (16) - Texas, USA - APR 13, 2014
pours a nice dark gold to orange color with good creamy head. nice lacing on the glass. bottle appearance is enhanced with great label design. The hop based aroma has nice amounts of citrus, slight peach, and pine accents. Taste is a little sweet with some lasting bitterness in the after taste. Ver!y nice IPA . . .I would have another!
