Just like me in the midst of a wild and crazy round of drunken hopscotch, this beer is HOPPY.
Very crisp, bitter finish. I can understand how past raters have claimed its somewhat acidic, with an almost medicinal quality at times.. but still, a great beer.
Those 70 IBUís hit your palate like a fat girl crashing a tricycle.

She a beauty! On tap @ Bardenay Boise
for ever! Maybe. Maybe not. Any way the sales donít lie. When this beer is on the rotating IPA handle it sells twice as fast as Bridgeport, Full Sail, Lagunitas, Elysian, Fishtale or Haleís. Stone rules and if you donít agree u r in the minority.
By the way....Great IPA.

bottle - By far one of the best IPAís around. Fresh, fruity hops aroma that you nose doesnít even need to get near to appreciate. Full beige head over a light golden liquid. Taste has a sweetness in an undertone, but is mostly hops and more hops. Finish is clean with the bitterness one hopes for in a good IPA.

Pours a hazy orange, with an impressive white head leaving great lacing. An intense, wonderful aroma of hops, floral notes and citrus. Hop blast to start the taste balanced by a lingering mild sweetness. Basically, what any IPA lover would look for. An incredible beer by any measure, and one of my "goto’s" when I can’t decide on anything.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2012 Hop floral aroma. Pours misty golden color. Medium palate with hop and malt taste. Has a delicious factor in it. Very good balance. Smooth finish.

This is one of the best IPAís out there. Has plenty of hops to satisfy and hop head without completly overpowering and ruining the beer.

Straight from the fridge to a large Sam Adams glass. Pours a nice golden color with a very nice hop scent and great hop taste. They say it's dry hopped for a couple weeks and it gives a great taste. Nice beer, nice aftertaste, a great beer.
