A beautiful floral aroma, average looking IPA with a flavor to boot. A balanced IPA with a malty presence in the front and a lasting bitter palate to finish. What you expect from an IPA.

If had three months before the born-on date, this beer rocks. Smooth, colorful, tasty... A great IPA. Bitter, but not overpowering. Fine hops.

Well, if you are a fan of hops, this is your beer. No questions asked. If you don’t know what hops are, drink this beer for an education. WOW...this was hoppy. In a good way, but I love the smell of fresh hops. This beer smelled like I was holding my nose above a bag of fresh hops. A really great beer if you like hops. If you hate hops, please do not drink this beer. Please!

Quite tasty. Has a nice, grapefruit-like, citrus flavor, which contributes to a stark bitterness. The ’sweet’ aromatics tend to fade quickly. Overall, a favorable brew (and extremely affordable), but I wish it had a more balanced malt body. But that’s just being picky.

A really nice IPA. Different from alotbecause it doesn’t have an abundance of hops but has a good maltiness to it. I love hops but I can do without in this beer.

The first time I tried this IPA it immediately reminded me of the original Ballantine IPA brewed in Newark, NJ many years ago. A deep golden color; frothy white head with tons of floral and spicy hops in the nose; pleasant hop bitterness hits the palate initially with plenty of carmel malt to stand up to the hops. A very crisp, fruity ale finish to it all. Great value for a real solid IPA.
