COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of premium hops and balanced with a premium selection of English malt. Traditionally unfiltered IPA’s lead to the slight haze appearance. An extensive dry-hopping process contributes to its very intense floral hop aroma. The IPA is unfiltered and as always, unpasteurized to leave all the natural flavors intact. If you’re at the brewery you’ll be able to guess what style of beer every brewer has in his hand. THE BEER YOU'VE BEEN TRAINING FOR!

For some reason when I scanned this beer it came up as sweet water IPA... I was drinking harpoons UFO White... My rating is for that. Very light flavor and aroma.. Has an almost"water" like quality. Not bad... Not great.

Frothmeister (546) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
12fl oz bottle. Pours clear, and the colour of honey. Big grapefruit notes on the nose, with light resinous hops, faint green vegetal notes, and very faint pot. LOTS of grapefruit, citrusy pith, with tropical fruit, light caramel, and good bitterness up front that leads into clean mineral notes, light metallic hops, and more citrus in the finish. Nothing to complain about. Solid.

Barreras (945) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Pours a rich amber color with a full floral aroma. Taste is simple, with complex flavors of fruit, spice, and hops throughout. I tasted banana, and clove which seemed to meld together wondefully. The mixture lasted just long enough to satisfy my palate and then quickly fade away leaving a little hop aftertaste. This was a very good mild flavored IPA.

Can. Pours clear orange with a large beige creamy head, puffy and slow to dissipate leaving nice lacing in its wake. Aroma is citrus, pine, floral, dank. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter, piney. A bit metallic, not the greatest. Medium body.

12 oz bottle. Tasted on 6/17/14. Bottle from Total Wine @ Naples, FL. The aroma had citrus, pine & some malt. The taste was good but didn't quite have the flavor I was expecting from the aroma. Overall a pretty decent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hoju777 (144) - FRANCE - JUN 16, 2014
BOttle from Food Lion in Raliegh Duram? Smells like skunk. Supposedly it’s hazy. Tastes ok. Kind of thick and peachy. It’s ok.

My go to IPA. Popped my hop-cherry with this baby years ago and while I swear the recipe has changed maybe it's just my palate. Perfect east coast IPA though slightly on the malty side of the spectrum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Picked up a six pack while visiting in laws in NC. Golden amber pour with a nice white head. Lots of lacing. Nice floral hoppy nose. Well balanced taste, earthy and slightly spicy hops. Mild bitterness in the finish.

Great beer. Hits the spot in all ways at a good price. Wish UK supermarkets sold this quality at this price
