I have found an IPA that I truly enjoy and thatís why itís going into my BHoF!! For those that know me, Iím a malt-head diligently working to gain an appreciation for IPAs. Squatters has just proved to be the ones that will definitely help me down the hops-path! This brew poured up an amber colored body with a foamy off-white colored head with outstanding retention and lacing effects on the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon-grass, pine, and hops. Flavors of the same but all so very well balanced that the character of this brew is so hard to describe adequately. Thereís a slight sweet malty hit on the finish that brings the flavors of this brew full circle! No harsh aftertaste and a very clean and refreshing finish.

Poured a golden copper color with a thick solid cap. The nose was a perfume of fresh hop cones. Very piney and flowery with a tiny hint of pale malt beneth. The taste was fresh with notes of spruce needle, grapefruit zest and flower pettal. An ample amount of dry and roasted malts compliment nicely the fresh hoppiness. The finish was dry and leafy with a body that has a medium feel. This is an awsome IPA The ample amount of hops mask the alcohol well and provide for a great session. Definitely check this one out. Did I mention the fresh hops?

Absolutely magnificent! Without a doubt the finest IPA Iíve ever tasted, and Iíve tasted a few! The hop balance is perfect. Nice hop flavor which doesnít fade to bitter as many IPAs tend to do.

Very tasty; a light copper color, floral hoppy aroma. A light to medium IPA.

Slightly copper hued, more so yellow with a solid with cap and tons of lacing in sheets. Nice aroma of freshly dried hop cones, leafy, grassy, fresh, with a smallish pale malt backing. Taste is lovely fresh with hop tones, leafy, green, grassy, nice bittering tones that are alpha acid packed with goodness and just mild enough to not over do it. Pleasingly placed malts add some zip of dried bread grains. The hops are really nice in fresh, very yummy with just a bit of pine and citric things to keep in some interest, but the freshness of leafyness is what made me keep on drinking this stuff. My is it tasty! Medium body feel and well carbonated with a substantial hop bittering thats fresh and leafy. Actually reminded me of a toned down Dreadnaught. That may be saying much, but htis stuff really was nice. I must have got a super fresh sixer, cuz it was fantastic.

Hops are clean and expressive. Malt flavor is light but very appealing. Some sweetness balances light bitterness creating an easy and accessible balance. Finish is long and complex.

6r from total wine. Cold mug first then out if bottle. Taste excellent blend of hops and goodness. Aroma lingers too much grapefruit. Hint of piney. Rather have more piney less grapefruit. Could use more hops bit defeats 6.5 abv. Solid for abv but again, less grapefruit needed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle purchased from the Squatters beer store. I had it in the fridge four days, so it should be pretty fresh. Cannot be sure because there is no freshness/ brewed on date. Label says 55 IBUs and 6.5% ABV. Appearance: Produces an off white head that quickly dissipates to thin patches that leave scattered lacing on my pint glass. The beer is a nice copper with a very small amount of haze. Aroma: The is a very light toasty malt character, but the hops steal the show. The hops do not over power and are a nice blend of floral, pine and a touch of citrus. As with most other beers with substantial ABVs, I also get some solvent alcohol. Taste/mouthfeel: The hops combine with the malt to form a nice balance. The bitterness offsets the light sweetness of the malts. The presence in the mouth is not too thick but not thin either. The carbonation is average while the finish is long from the delicious hops bitterness. Overall: One of my favorite IPAs. This one is easy for me to get, brewed in my home town. Very easy to drink, and very enjoyable.
