I picked this up for $20 on sale. After seeing the rating and reviews I wasn’t expecting much but surprise, this is a rather pleasant beer. Like others have noted, it’s a little on the tame side as far as hoppiness for an IPA but there’s definitely some nice hop flavor in there. The malt profile is nice, not too sweet but slightly sweet. There’s nothing bad about this beer. It’s well rounded, hoppy enough for hopheads to enjoy but tame enough to share with non hophead friends.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2015 My first beer from this brewery. Clear orange blonde with low sparkling, under a medium, lightly lacing, very regular, finely textured, clotted cream-coloured head. Aroma is not unlike many of the blonde Belgian ales hopped with Fuggle / Styrian Golding: an earthy, elegant, somewhat soapy and minty hoppiness remaining gentle enough to leave space for fruity esters and sweetish malts. I get brown bread, marmelade, soap, young cheese, mango, some caramel, hazelnuts, faint hint of eucalyptus, acacia honey, dough, peach and biscuit - in all: strikingly weak hop presence for an American IPA. Sweetish onset of honey and candied fruits but in a very subdued, ’quiet’ way, pretty soft carbonation, hint of salty minerals, toasted malts taking over, a bit nutty and ’biscuity’, bittering and in that sense blending well with the ensuing hop bitterness, which retains an earthy, soapy, leafy, peppery character, nothing of the high alpha acids hops I had expected (and, quite honestly, hoped for), yet long and dry, just remaining ’low’ and - frankly - a bit boring. This is not an IPA to me, not even completely in the classical English sense of the word (which was the first thing that sprung to mind when missing the American citrus hops in the nose); this seems to be more close to a (very) hoppy Belgian blonde. Which is not a disappointment per se because in this category it would hold its own pretty well, I just expected American hoppiness from it.

From tap. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small off white head. Aroma is toasted malty and light fruity. Sweet, fruity snd slight earthy hoppy. Bitter, drry snd towards herbal. Rather bitter finish.

GIJOE (732) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Pours amber with a thick foamy white head that stays long. Nose is mild hops. Taste is fresh, slightly bitter, and leaves a floral aftertaste. A bit thin for me, but quite refreshing and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a very disappointing IPA. Bet lets face it they were shooting for a british version not an American version. But I am in America, this is an American brewery. So the aroma taste is very week and not what you would want from an IPA. light grain light musk. Not to good.

Dunkel gyllen farve med lyst skum. Lukt av gress, frukt, sitrus og humle. Smak av gress, karamell, frukt, sitrus og humle. Fruktig og bitter avslutning.

worldbeertaste (1709) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014
Yellow with a white I , disappearing head. Smells a bit of rot and old fruit with hops and corn. Leaves. Tastes of sour wheat with alcohol and a sulfar yeast finish. Sort of like a Labatte Ice Stong Lagar Beer. Not impressed.

mighty_meadow (300) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Only 79p per bottle in Home Bargains. Not hoppy enough to be a truly great IPA but nice all the same. Quite floral at times with bitter finish. Definite plum notes at the finish as well.

12oz brown bottle. Pours out a golden shade, a touch unclear. Soapy and thin white head on top. Nose has grassy hops. Taste has lemon and grassy hops. Grass and earthy hops in the fade out, low bitterness. Aftertaste has dirt and grass. Not a fan.
