Gold with a reddish hue. Floral, hop smell. Spring herbal flavor as it first hits the palate and then turning to a bitter hop flavor but not as hoppy as an IPA should be IMHO. Light and a bit watery with a dry after taste. Overall a very average IPA without much character.

Ratings might be a bit off, I drank this with a very spicy stew. The flavor was good, but lacked the mouth feel some better pale ales have.

If this was the last beer on Earth I would very much enjoy drinking it. However, since there are other brews out there I donít think Iíll be paying for this one again. Versus Bud and Coors and other ^%^&, I reach for the Red Hook. Hope this will coax Americans into the finer IPAs but as a stand alone I was not impressed. Some mild skunkiness is detedtable and it does not have the bouqet that I expect from a titled IPA.

this was my first venture into the world of IPA. A really smooth hoppy beer. The clear body threw me off a little but the taste definately hits the spot. I cant wait to try more IPA.

From Draft: I actually thought this was pretty good. The citrus hop aroma was pretty strong. I immediately thought of the amarillo hops I had just used when brewing last week.

Bottle poured into a pilsner glass at flemmings in sarasota. Pours gold/yellow with almost no head. Aroma is floral with very little trace of hops. Favors are grapefruit and floral citrus. Extremely mediocre ipa.

I like the high alcohol content of an IPA, but there is something missing here, like good taste.
