4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
An attractive looking hazey orange beer with quickly dissipating white froth. Brilliant nose of brewery air, fresh picked hops, pine, grapefruit, and apricot. Balanced yet bitterly hoppy with enough malt sweetness to successfully bring out the complex flavors of the hops. Finish is crisp and superbly fresh tasting. Certainly an I.P.A. to look up to.

Solid IPA. Nothing too hard to handle with a moderately masked sweet finished so the bitterness is finely juxtaposed. I like

Pours a pretty golden/copper color with a white head. The aroma is great and overwhelmingly full of hops. The aroma dominates on the first few sips adding depth of flavor. Great finish thats full of hops as well.

One of the best IPA’s I know of. Wonderful from start to finish. It’s not overly hoppy like some IPA’s tend to be but it doesn’t fall flat either.

Thanks Stone for turning me on to Ipa’s. Very first ipa I drank nearly 7 yrs ago. Now this is my go to Ipa. Appearance is golden. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, with a little pine aroma with a touch of resin. Touch of bitterness but just perfect. Very easy to drink and very enjoyable!

This stuff is straight AMAZING! Fruity aroma, smells like 5:00 on a Friday after a long week. Smells citrus, fruit, tart. Looks like beer. Blah, Blah.
The flavor is citrus, buttery, goes down like gravy. Peppery bitter with a pleasant aftertaste. Full malty body that is truly staggering in complexity. It’s like a fruity, hoppy, bitter milkshake. (does that even sound good?) Very Very good.

While this is good...it does not deserve the 100 points rating for a single IPA. I got it fresh from the brewery and, while it is a good beer, there is much to be desired. Its dry hops create a good bitterness and the malt is sufficient but there is not enough of either to consider it a great beer. The balance is good but both could be stronger for the style.

Bottle; A IPA with a great selection of hops which work in harmony. It was light on the palate yet boasted an enjoyable hoppy flavor with a distinct sweetness and a great aftertaste. One of the better IPAs that I’ve had.
