Pours a beautiful amber color with minimal head. Very hoppy, which is something that I always appreciate. Iím a big fan of IPAís, and this one definitely "steps up to the plate". 12 oz. bottle.

Real standard IPA. I was glad to find it in a relative beer wasteland but it served its purpose and now I am done with it.

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Clear boring gold with a decent white head. Smells like pine-sol, cat urine, lemons, and grapefruits. Tastes very resiny with a long, drawn out finish. Heavy on the straight forward bitterness, and not the nuances of the hops. Decently balanced. Semi-full bodied. Meh.. Run of the mill.

oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Pours a bubbly dark golden yellow, thick dense fluffy head. Earthy grassy aroma. Also some citrus and hop presence. Orange peal and grass, with a bitter hop finish. Not too flavorful or much hops. Palate is smooth a little thin. Meh.

jsquire (3614) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Golden color out of the 12 oz bottle, with a thin fizzy white head. Pine hop nose with hints of canned peas. Orange rind bitterness with lots of grass in the finish. I also get notes of celery, pennies, and those canned peas again. There isnít really enough balance here. Pretty average IPA.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Pours a light little amber color with a medium off white head. Smells of light hops and grapefruit citrus. Nothing complex, smells a little hoppy like it should. The flavor had a decent amount of hops to it, certainly held its own in that regard. Some grapefruit citrus lingers in the finish and the aftertaste with a decent hop bitterness as well. Solid little IPA, wasnt expecting too much and was pleasantly surprised.

Haslinger (866) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Solid IPA, definite hops taste. Bitter with the taste of hops as one would expect in an IPA, would buy again

12 oz bottle. This ipa wasnt that bad. The aroma is lighter than other IPAs Ive had, as is the taste.

On tap. Head is pure white and leaves surprisingly good lace. Aroma has very little mild grapefruit hops, maybe a little sweetness. Weak taste of honey malt and moderate bitterness, but something else. Vegetables, celery and tomatoes hiding in there. Palate is a little too light, too watery. Oh well.
