Unbelievable. Fruity, hoppy smell lasts even in an empty bottle. Taste is so...darn...good. Found this on accident when leaving for a trip to the Black Hills...forgot all my beer. I almost called 911. While passing through Rapid City, SD, I stopped at Safeway grocery. There it was, on the shelf, one 6pk left. I reached for it with hesitation, put it back , then returned. My life was never the same after that. Perfect beer..hands down.

Clear golden beer with a foamy head and a tangy fruit aroma. Taste has an initial tangy, almost grapefruit-y hit with a touch of sweet caramel. It leaves similar flavour but with a touch of malt as well. Very drinkable indeed.

Nice hop flavor, but the malt backbone is a little thick for a non-imperial IPA. I much prefer Sam Adamís Rebel IPA

33cl bottle. Pours a beautiful amber color, off white head. Smells of caramel, some hops, light floral and fruity notes. Taste starts sweet with some citrus, vegetal hoppy notes,maybe some yeast. Dry bitter finish. Very good not too sweet/fruity american take on British style IPA.

Clear gold pour with a white head.
The aroma has light pine and spice all from the hops.
The flavor is nicely bitter but within a good balance.
Easy drinking, middle of the road IPA.
Thanks to crajun for the trade.

On tap at shamrocks. Served a copper color with a small head and good lacing. Aroma of pine, bit of grapefruit and sweetness. Taste of pine, mild malt sweetness and bit of grain. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body, crisp with a nice clean feel. Nice bee without being overly hopped.

Bottle at Pub 17 (the hotel bar in the Grand Hyatt on Welton in Denver) poured into a pint glass. Pours orange colored with a creamy white head on top. Aroma of grapefruits, big pine notes, bready malts. Flavor follows closely with a huge bitter pine bite that is very drying on the finish. Despite the bitter, there is a definite malt presence here and it is certainly not what Iíd call a west coast IPA. Medium bodied, on the dryer side, with medium plus carbonation. Good brew, but not sure it met my expectations.
