By definition, an India Pale Ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale-and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy flavor and hop aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.

I find this to be one of the premier American IPA’s. The floral aroma and smooth hoppy finish is what all IPA’s should want to achieve. It is very crisp and clean. Kudos!

Once poured, you notice the mysterious dense head, slightly misty golden orange colour. One of the first IPA's I have seriously sampled to date and yet still remains my favourite. Starts with a strong crisp and complexed, hop to floral flavour with a pronounced finish. It is a medley of liquid love in a bottle. I am throwing my first wife out for this beer!

Hoppy beer with touch of maltiness. Pours golden brown with medium head. Overall good IPA, clean on the palate and crips aftertaste

Nice apricot flavor. Floral hop nose. Not your typical cascade dominated American IPA. Good stuff!

May be the most balanced ipa. Fruity, good after taste, not too strong or too long. Bold but not overpowering. ............... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I don’t need to tell you this is a good beer. Smell the hops, taste the hops, enjoy the hops.

Quite possibly the perfect beer! Citrusy crisp hops and nice malty undertones. I try to pick up a six pack weekly. Not widely available in Ny unfortunately.

Tap at Pivni York, aroma is certainly hoppy but a bit disappointed with taste. IMHO not nearly hoppy enough. Saying that would still have again.

This is a great ipa. Right there with dogfish head (imo) At first the citrus flavor is a little strong. But it evens out. Nice head with strong lacing. Great tasting ipa

Nice citrus and hop aroma, decent colour and head. The flavour is bitterness, bitterness and more bitterness pretty much obscuring everything else. A classic of the seemingly trendy idea that ramming a tonne of hops in a beer makes you a good brewer. It doesn’t and this is a poor beer, badly blended. The plethora of this type of beer is frankly getting really boring now.
