as it pours into the glass, you are greeted by a beautiful golden beer, with cascading bubbles and a perfect hop aroma. on the palate, the hoppiness is just right, setting of the nice malty flavors hidden beneath. delicious, drinkable and perfect

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 Bitter, dry, hoppy. Citrus flavor and aromas. Fairly pale and light bodied. Good, but has fallen behind compared to some of the IPAs that have been coming out.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bronze color with a very small, white head that fades very quickly. The smell is of a nice hoppy citrus. The taste has a very nice fruity hoppy flavor, followed by a nice bitterness. The mouthfeel is creamy.

A great IPA. Low AA hops (guessing) because nose has a little more umph to it (vs. hoppy body...mmmm...hoppy body). Caramel, typical ale yeast. Just an enjoyable beer. Would recommend!

F-ing great. Smell the supercharged Cascade like aroma of the Centennial, taste the 2 row and crystal malts, swallow and feel the smooth bitter bite of the Centennial hops and just revel in the glory of this beaut.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper orange in color. Aroma of pine and all-purpose cleaner. Vinegar, peach, banana, and pineapple with a flowery, over-hopped finish. I like this one, but I’ve always found it lacking a certain caramel balance.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a very solid, hoppy IPA. Generous hops on the aroma and in the flavor. Notes of pine and citrus in the aroma. The flavor and finish are also quite bitter and floral and not too sweet, with at most medium carbonation. I like the Ruination IPA more, but this is a good IPA.

12 oz. -> shaker. At first blush, this is just your ordinary IPA: pours a translucent light amber, with a nice, frothy head and decent lacing. Then you smell it, and something seems off: hoppy, citrus, with subtle apricot and evergreen notes, and bubble gum? But when you taste it, you know this is no ordinary IPA.. Mixed in with the flora-citrus hoppiness and the subtle toasted maltiness are Bubblicious and the subdued bite of fresh black pepper. And balance? Perfect.
