An American hop assault for all the ambivalent warriors who get the girl in the end. "Look, I ain’t in this for your revolution, and I’m not in it for you, princess."

JulienHuxley (5210) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2015
Can. Nice gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, lots of grassy hop notes, tropical notes, nice citra/galaxy aroma. Taste is lightly bitter, nice juicy hoppy flavor, very fruity, light grass. Palate is light bodied with good carbonation. Tasty.

halfonit (1280) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a clear golden color with a whiye head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, bread, and a little skunk. Heavy and bubbly palate. Flavor is the same. Very fresh hops and citrus come through. Leaves a nice citrus hop finish.

degbert (1521) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2015
Can, from the great Central Texas Bonfire Chicago Area IPA Taste-Off. Pours deep amber-orange with a high, foamy, lacy, off-white head. Nose is grapefruit, lime, lavender, and just a touch of smoke. Sweet on the very front of the tongue, then with some bitterness; the sweet returns, with stone fruit and honey and a little bit of smoke. I don’t know why, but this beer makes me think of really good waffles. Finish goes completely dry and extremely bitter, with mouth-parching astringency. Nummy.

migwell (211) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 10, 2015
Can poured into tulip. Copper colored, no head to mention, aroma of the predominant hops. Spectacularly ugly graphics on the can. This is a very hop forward brew, with whatever malt is present (the beer part) overwhelmed almost completely by the bitter part, the all to usual American IPA story. Not citrusy either nor fruity, it is a mildly carbonated hop broth, served chilled. Not complaining, as I like the style, but there appear to be thousands of clones available these days. This is a decent one, and quite drinkable. Digging the Turboninja’s comments below, where he seems to like this brew, but rates it a .5! Counting error?

deekyn (1444) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 4, 2015
A- pours a lightly hazy apple juice brown with a solid finger of frothy eggshell white head. Good lacing. S- sweet caramel and dank passion fruit hops. Lemons, coriander and kiwis. Fresh baked sourdough and damp wood. Warm, overripe apples. Some oranges and faint cloves. M- medium sticky body some butting alcohol. Great active carb. T- lots of caramel malts and citrus up front. Lemons, passion fruit, brown sugar, apples, honeydew melons. Orange candies. You can ride the hops from start to finish. Breads. Ending is dankness and more malts. Some bitter zinc and dirty lemon pith. Finish is smooth and sustained.

Six pack of cans from Muckey’s. Pours out a clear light golden amber with a frothy off-white head. Bright, fresh aromas and flavor. Some pine, citrus, herb and flowers. Easy drinking and very tasty! Welcome to Mass!

HonusWagner (1914) - Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2015
A pretty ok hoppy IPA somewhere between the maltier midwest style and the classic west coast style. It’s a bit citrusy, a bit grassy, bitter, but a little sweet.
