Excellent IPA, citrus pine grassy aroma, dank spruce hop bitterness against a solid but in the background backbone. Nice lacing, balanced finish. Perfect abv for an IPA and carefully woven into the hops and malt to make this almost too drinkable. Top notch it is.

Pours orange-amber with an off-white head. Lots of grapefruit in the nose, other citrus and some pine as well. Taste is grapefruit, pine, a hint of bready malt. Fairly creamy with a drying resinous bitter finish. Pretty solid hop-forward IPA.

Bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange, one finger head, nice lacing. Aroma is citrus and grass. Taste is pleasantly bitter; little malt. Solid.

This beer lived up to itís name. Looked like an IPA, Smelled like an IPA, and Tasted like and IPA. It must be one. This one is top notch in my book.

Grapefruit abounds. Sampled next to the Trader IPA from the same brewery. I wish they had the hop profile on their website. Very balanced for a heavy hitter.

Pours a vibrant golden amber color. Smells floral and hoppy. Hop flavor is not very pronounced. Good average beer.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep golden-approaching-amber color. Aggressive bottle pour yielded a 2-inch head that slowly dissipated, left a nice lacing on the glass. Disappointed in the aroma, guess Iíve been spoiled by the floral aromas of competing IPAs. Solid bitterness, but not balanced entirely right with the malts. A good beer, but not one of my faves and IPAs are one of my favorite styles. Something missing in the malt complexity, so itís a little too hoppy. Wonít be plunking down cash for another sixer of this too soon.

Excellent bold hop with a Citrus bitter aftertaste. Light white head and delicious hoppy aroma. Overall a great IPA!
