COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Extensively hopped and dryhopped with a big roster of hops – Simcoe, Centennial, Cascade, Ahtanum, Chinook, and Amarillo – it’s big, bright, and floral, with just enough malt to balance. This American-style I.P.A. stands head and shoulders above its hoppy brethren, blending pale and honey malts to balance the palate without interfering in your herbal reverie, and creating a new American classic.

MrBunn (2841) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2017
Can. Pours a hazy gold with a very large and fluffy head. Kinda came bursting out of the can when I popped the tab. Aromas are delicious with lemon, pineapple and a bit of resin. Flavor is big and crisp... resin and pineapple seem to drive the bus with a pretty good malt presence that balances things out well. This is a pretty nice IPA.

ganache (6013) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2017
Can from WW. Nose floral and sweet, too crystalline; pour hazy-opaque orange-golden with a foamy off-white head. Taste strongly bitter and lightly sweet, heavy pine and heavy wood, heavy caramel and resin, smooth, heavy full body but thin and watery at the edges and flatter than is normal for an IPA (too flat, I’d say). Good nondescript citrus and low-medium dough, bright flits of zest here and there and a firm floral base to match the citrus and caramel. It’s a little flabby and heavy for volume drinking but a fine throwback. [2017.07.24: 3.2]

willisread (3474) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Can from J’s. Pours a clear gold with a finger of foam that lingers. Malty nose with some pine. Lemony pine on the palate. Bitter and a touch of caramel.

Trying the second beer in my husband's flight at the shep and I remain unimpressed. I can see through the beer and it doesn't have much of an aroma or taste. All around not much to write home about, if you see it on the menu you can think about how someone who was once a flower child would be fun to hang with but then keep moving. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jrodooo5 (1691) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - APR 14, 2017
A malty & relatively smooth ipa. Pours a pretty gold w/ a retaining white head w/ good lacing. The aroma is surprisingly light w/ the malt & hope kind of mellowing each other out. The taste is quite similar as the hope are only the undertone & the malt adds a nice balance. It’s the type of ipa I enjoy but the flavor explosion just isn’t quite there!

Bill Becker (1105) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - FEB 10, 2017
A: Slightly hazy orange gold. Plenty of foam, and tilting my glass from side to side, plenty of lacing. S: Pine and very flowery hops in the smell. Mostly pine, which I dig. T: Pine again but with a mildly aggressive grainy malt character that adds a real plus to this IPA. There’s a subtle sweetness that I get within the flavourful profile that I can’t identify. Helps. M: Medium bodied until the finish where it thins out some. O: I reckon my palate likes this muchly. Who am I to argue?

SpringsLicker (3660) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 9, 2017
Can. Hazy dark yellow with a white head. Nice hop aroma. tropical fruit, pine, juicy malts. The flavor isn’t as impressive as the aroma, but gives a good solid firm bitterness over a solid malt base. Long bitter finish.
