This is less hoppy and more malty than most IPAs I have tried. Still, a nice balance. Pours a pale amber with a quickly settling head. Finish is on the dry side. Alcohol well hidden. Goes down easy. Nice.

Bottle via stateline. Poured into a snifter, amber colored orange, decent head. Danky aroma of hops on the nose. Reminds me of a "wet" hopped brew. Taste isnt bitter but still hoppy. Flowers, a little danky/wet hop taste. Well balanced, easy to drink. Body: Light, low/medium carbonation. Overall: Nice IPA, that I would drink/buy again. Thanks to Matt for the recommendation.

Love the label design, especially the text on the left side. Nice-looking beer, too; bright gold with a frothy-foamy head. Has some bright flavors and aromas. Lots of snappy fruit (lemon, grapefruit, tangerine) and evergreens (pine, spruce). Itís also spicy, floral and grassy. Malts are nutty, bready and cracker-like, with a caramel-like sweetness at its core. Somewhat bold, but also balanced. Solid beer.

Thin white head with fair retention and decent lace. Lightly hazy gold colored ale. nose is gentle with spicy hops, light citrus and faint malts. Lightly medium body, nice carbonation, lil oily. Nice balance of citrusy hop flavors and light caramel malts, lil grainy and bready, light earthyness. Finishes fairly dry, lightly fruity.Easy quaffer for the ABV. Bottle from statelineliquors.

Golden colored ipa with a thin white head. Nice hope and pine presence on the nose. Nice mouthfeel not dry and even as it goes down. Very easy to drink. Solid effort and a beer you could chill and drink all night

As far as IPAs go this one is pretty good. Aroma is really nice while the head lasts spicy style hops with pine and grapefruit and even a bit of juniper (scent, not actual)
Appearance is actually really really nice, Super clear copper color with a nice tight head that unfortunately disappears quickly hurting the lasting aroma. Taste is bitter, with all the aroma notes and a skinny backbone of malts, not grainy or sweet really just barely there.
Palate is a bit sweet but mostly dry.
Overall this is a good IPA but Iím getting kind of burnt out on IPAs. So Iím not sure if itís great or not, or if I just donít think IPAs can be all that great anymore.

Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized creamy light tan head. Good head retention and nice sheets of lacing. Really a nice looking beer. The aroma is herbal and peppery hops with pale malts. The taste is herbal hops, caramel, faint fruitiness and a bitter finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation and a slight lingering bitterness. Nice.

Well well well.....on tap at the local steak house. Served in an NON icy glass...the world must be ending. medium piney nose. Hop bite is flower in body and soft. A lovely deep amber in the glass. A solid IPA which is neither in your face with hops or a watery excuse for an IPA. I had two. Alcohol sneaks up on you in the parking lot.

Pours a light amber with about a finger of off-white head. Aroma is sweet citrus hops. Taste is slightly bitter but not overly hopped. Good easy drinking IPA with a serious ABV. Good stuff.

Copper color. Lots of pine in the nose. A hint of gin. First taste is balanced, but a little too bitter. Good finish. A bit thin. Overall a good beer.
