Great cheap ipa with a high dollar taste! Good balance of malt and hop! Great beer for the price!

"i remember having a really good imperial ipa from Pyramid once, but it must have been based on a different IPA than this one...this is the budweiser of IPA’s. anything but inspired. less aroma and flavor than one would expect."

Bottle on Amtrak October 5th, 2014. Aroma of sap, citrus, caramel. Taste is bittersweet. Effervescent and dry finish.

jds2008 (20) - Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Coppery amber color with very fine cream colored head. Aroma is floral and "beery." Flavor is caramelly with floral notes, followed by really strong herbal bitterness. Tastes good, but too long of a bitter finish for me.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2014
Hazy dull light amber. Medium head. Earthy aroma and old school bitter but dull cheesy hop character. Not great but old school.

reus958 (21) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Pours as a muddy amber, not particularly clear in an IPA glass. Very little hop aroma. Tastes very bitter with a little bit of malt flavors to back it. It’s like Pyramid added all hops early in the boil. This beer was a complete miss and disappointing for pyramid.

Luvystypotables (806) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Virtually no aroma just a hint of hops, copper colored not much head. No distinctive taste just a bitter taste with an oily feel and a bitter finish.

alexsdad06 (5938) - Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2014
12 ounce bottle from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, mild caramel, light resiny and citrus hops, lightly toasted bread, a general bitterness to the finish, medium bodied. A very average ipa.

Jrwhitney6 (332) - - MAY 17, 2014
Pours a very cloudy copper - not particularly attractive. Nice nose, though, with floral and pine scents. Taste is some citrus, sweet caramel malt and hops. Pretty solid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

very disappointing it kind of tastes like budweiser at first but finishes a little better. Aroma isn’t to bad but the flavor is very off sweet then bitter and skunky no balance. I thought maybe just poor storage but reading the other reviews probably not.
