COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unfiltered amber ale is packed full of hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. IPA is the most bitter beer style and it is enjoyed by people we refer to as “hopheads.” We dry hop this beer with a combination of English and American hop varieties for a wonderfully aromatic finish.

Second time having my first time IPA and I'm sold. Great amber color, decent aroma (wife thinks it stinks lol ), and loving the taste.

This was courtesy of a trade from Strykzone .Thanks Dave. Poured a dark amber color with a beige head. Lots of lacing. Nose is caramel malts and citrus hops. The body is medium plus and the mouth feel is resinous. Flavor is quite biter with lots citrus and some fruit as well. Long bitter finish. Very good.

Reviewed from notes. I poured this into a pint glass. The appearance is a nice light golden yellow to orange color with a decent one to two fingers worth of foamy white head that ended up dieing at a decent pace. Carbonation is seen rising in the body. The smell had bitter piney yet also some citrus hops enabling a decent malt bill to eventually come out to combine pretty nicely. The taste was bitter and sweet that tried to be at the same time but ended up missing each other here and there. On the palate, it sat fairly light and had a decent sessionable quality to it. The carbonation is there for an AIPA as there’s enough pummeling harshness running about it. Overall, I say this was a good AIPA that I could have again.

Can from Mike. Aroma is metallic and malty. Taste is more metal, sweet malts no hop presence. Scroll past.

can. Amber with two finger head. Fairly strong malt body. Hops are bitter, but not particularly flavorful. There’s an odd metallic flavor here that really turns me off.

On draught at Dan’s. The pour is a clear amber-ish gold with a nice white head and some good lacing. The aroma is pretty lacking. There is a decent grassy hop dominance, if you can call it that, and some piney and malty undertones. The flavor is mostly something like a sweet bitterness (oxymoron I know). The maltiness adds a a flavor that’s both intriguing and strange. The mouth feel is a little thin, but the flavors cling and linger nicely

Can. Pour is a cloudy light amber with a thin head and aromas of resin and caramel. Flavor is good IPA with nothing too special in terms of hops. It is nicely bitter with a very good resiny quality to the hops presence, but it won’t blow your hair back with the newest and greatest hop that is in short supply and people are freaking out to try. What it will do is deliver a nice punchy hops bitterness that is decently supported by a nice malty balance.

Dark cloudy yellow color. Has a citrus aroma. A nice blend of medium hops and a little bit of citrus. Finishes dry. Nice IPA.

Sharp, hoppy nose and taste. Finishes surprising smooth and hides the alcohol well. Worth a try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy amber with a large off-tan head that sticks around. Aroma of grains, citrus and caramel. Taste pretty much the same in a balanced package and a medium bitter finish that’s slightly dry.
