Good IPA with a classic taste, a little fruity. However the finish is quite weak, with only a slight bitter taste and nothing else. This is a good beer and smooth, but I’ll go for a bolder IPA next time.

harrisoni (13596) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle from Gbbf 2014 and drunk on a train. Clear dark amber colour lasting cream head. Strong piney resiny hop aroma. Decent straight diwn the line American ipa. Requisite hops flavours and supporting malt. Slightly malty than hoppy. Fine but not much to make it stand out. Growing bitterness on the finish is good.

Well as the label obviously implies, this hop-heavy IPA goes for overkill, and apparently is not interested in balancing out that flavor. That being said there is still noticeable malty background to the strong Pacific hop flavors. Also it isn't so much bitter as it is just a more intense hop profile. Almost could pass as a double IPA. Beyond taste, appearance and aroma are standard for the style. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and surprisingly smooth and drinkable. Strong resin finish. Good but I wouldn't go out of my way to try it again. On a food pairing note, seems like it would pair well with fish and chips or other "pub food" entrees.

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2014
12 oz bottle into tulip-esque glass. Thanks, Brandon. Lovely barely-hazy copper-orange pour; creamy head; nice lacing. Cereal grains, citrus, light pine, light caramel, floral, light grassy. Quite bitter but the balance is really there. Medium-full body, lightly sticky. Excellent IPA.

Luvystypotables (618) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Weak aroma of hops a trace of citrus. Good looking amber colored beer with a short lasting well head. Bitter indistinctive taste. Watery feel with a bitter finish

arminjewell (6158) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz botle, hazy orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, oxidized hops, hints of dark sugar, touch of white fruit, biscuit, bread, hints of grain, some lemon. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, caramel, toffee, white fruit, hitns of biscuit, bread, some spice, orange, grapefruit, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Hope to try this fresh some day.

Oldmanriver (45) - Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2014
Had at Taps in Atlanta, Ga. Pine and citrus. A little silky before finishing dry. Not much malt and a bit thin. Easy to drink and bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice smooth IPA. Nicely balanced. Poured from 12 oz bottle into Dogfish IPA glass. Very good beer.
