Mmm good citrussy and grassy aromas, fresh. So refreshing and bright, floral, piney, honey. Smooth and silky.

Awesome pine citron aroma with spruce grapefruit orange rind and light biscuit malt flavors. Finishes on the bitter side of balanced. A total hop bomb for a single IPA. Drinks like a double. For me that is a good thing.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2015 Aroma: Citrusy, mouth-drool inducing olfactory perfection Appearance: Deep amber, with clingy lacing coating the glass Taste: Superbly balanced grapefruit citrus lets the hops be at the forefront without being overwhelming. Palate: So smooth, at an ideal ABV, this is session stuff for me. Overall: I canít find any fault with this brew and Iím let down every time I try other IPAs (frequently).

Incredible! This IPA is like no other Iíve tasted. The hops used in this brew are probably the same hops used in their Dubhe. Everything an IPA should be, piney, floral aroma. Appearance is slightly opaque with a one finger head. Taste was great, piney and floral hops coming through with a solid malt background. Iím really amazed at this one and the price is right! I will definitely keep this one on hand for friends and family to experience.

Near perfect. Drinking with jambalaya. Copper with incrdbly sticky white head. Aroma of hops and malt and citrus and more hops. Perfect creamy balance.

Pours a clear golden with slight tint of orange and one finger of head that sticks around a bit. Mouth-watering hoppy smells of fresh-cut grass and piney woods with a hint of citrus and light malt. Intense flavors of dank, grassy hops that approaches an oniony or garlicy character, but falls just short of that. Sweet from the begining, but also very bitter the whole time, so it finally finishes somewhat dry after the long bitter finish. Great American IPA. Just a great beer.

Aroma: citrus, pineapple, pine, grapefruit Appearance: amber orange, clear, a white head sort of fizzy and foamy, dissolves with light lacing. Taste: bitter, grapefruit, rind, a little floral. Palate: starts bitter, then a little sweet, then bitter again that fades after about 15 seconds. Overall: great beer!

Pours a hazy bronze. Nose has grapefruit and honey. Taste is a hop explosion with a bitter front with grapefruit running the show and a slight hint of lemon. It has a big malty finish with a slightly sweet and tart linger. One of my favorite IPAs, but definitely a hop-forward selection.
