Pours a bright clean copper with decent white head. Smells of pine forest, and citurs. Taste is very hoppy, more pine, grapefruit, grass, and slightly sweet. Finishes very dry and bitter. Decent

Tasted 2010-12-04. Hoppy aroma. Very grassy nose. Almost resin-like. Bitter taste, slightly sweet. I donít understand the "extra" part. This is just an ordínary IPA IMO. Good, mind you.

Amber with some off white head. Aroma is very hoppy with some citrus and pine notes. Bit of malt comes out on the palate. Not too bitter given the aroma. Smooth and enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red-orange with small head. Aroma with hops and some bready malt. Flavor mostly piney hops and some malt balance. Donít taste much alcohol. Bitterness more like an IPA than DIPA although alcohol is a little higher. Drinkable, would have again although wouldnít specifically seek it out.

Typical looking IPA with tiny head. Hops, red fruit, hay. Really delicious aroma. Good carbonation develops the full flavour of the beer. Dry hoppy bitterness and full bodied aftertaste. Not overwhelming though. Cool ipa. (Draft at The top.)

Not much of a difference from the Celebration or Harvest Ale, but definitely goes down easy without the harsh overly hopped IPAís Iím used to from the West Coast. Bitter after taste of citrus and grapefruit. Overall and great IPA. An oldie but a goodie.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 2013 Okay Iím a full hop head now, and this is dropping in ratings rapidly. Aroma is acutally pretty bad. Nice lasting head. taste is average to low. Drop from 4.1 to 3.5
2012 rating Had this one more recent... not the density of complexity of other IPAs still great... but not amazing as i once said
This really is an amazing American IPA. Its hoppy but not as much on the bitter side... youíll be past the bitter in the first 4-5 sips. After that its smooth and enjoyable. Refreshing and excellent... worth a 6 pack.
