This classic India Pale Ale is wonderfully hopped for a strong start, a smooth finish, and a fine amber color.

12oz bottle (thanks to buckybeer) poured a slightly hazy pale/gold color with a great rocky head and nice lacing around the glass. The aromas were right on the money with a good malt backing and nice floral piney/citrus hops. Taste had good bitterness that faded to a big hop flavored dry finish.

I have really developed a taste for IPA’s. I have not tasted one that has been bad. Maybe it is a tough style to screw up. Medium amber with nice fluffy head. Great hoppy pine aroma. Citrus and hop flavor. Nice and refreshing.

12 oz bottle and served in a pint glass: Poured a hazed sunset amber topped by a a huge overflowing frothy head, made me worry about infection. But alas it was likely due to a aggressive pour and bottle conditioning. The nose detects the standard IPA character of pine, grass, grapefruit, and pepper along with biscuity malt and dusty yeast esters. The taste is much more subdued with a nice hop bitterness and hop spice nature over a laden field of pale and crystal malt. Astringent on the edge of the palate but lacks depth and a knockout punch. The bottle appear to be eight months old so that could explain the missing bite. All in all it is an acceptable IPA and worthy of a try.

Poured a light amber color. Aroma was very hoppy with a nice combo of pine and citrus. Flavor continues the trend with nice citrus hop notes and a nice sweet finish.

Pour is a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is nice. Lots of pine hop and a aroma simular to rye. Flavor is not as good as the aroma but there are some hint of hops and the malts come out more in the flavor. Not the best IPA by far. If the flavor was equal to the aroma this would be a winner.

bottle-thanks to vyvvy for this one. I didn’t think it was as bad as he did. however, this is just a run-of-the mill session ipa. clear orange with a small sudsy white head. big hoppy nose! fresh passionfruit, green, and lots of character. flavors are not as hoppy as i was expecting from the nose. fairly boring and one-dimensional hop flavor at the finish which became metallic after a few sips. somewhat muddled finish with no distinct flavors. not bad, but not great either.

Pours lightly hazy copper / orange with a small white head. The aroma has lots of floral hops & no malt to be detected. Medium body (lighter than normal for the style though) with fairly sharp carbonation. No malt on the taste, all hops - this needs some balance to it. The hops are all floral and fairly sharp tasting. Finish gets metallic. Too one dimensional for me.

Thanks to hopdog for the trade. Pours a hazy golden orange amber with an average off white creamy and bubbly head that left lacing and sustained. Aroma of sweet grapefruit, pine, various citrus. Very nice upfront hoppy aroma. Flavor of grapefruit, pine, some sweet maltiness hidden under a bunch of hop bitterness.

12oz. bottle. Citrus grapefruit aroma detectable without putting nose in the glass. Copper body good white head and good amout of lacing. Good dose of ctirus hop flavor that is cool and crisp on the palate. Some lingering dry grapefruit for aftertaste.
