Nice, strong hoppy beer that pours flavorfully from its 12 oz container. The hops are more apparent in this beer than in its 2 bigger brothers but it is noticably tamer as well. The flavor is strong and well balanced but not notewothy. The finish is strong with a noticably hoppy aftertaste. A great drinking beer if your out on the town assuming that your local establishment carries it.

Good combo of fruity and bitterness in a light to medium body beer. Good stuff. Purchased at NewPi in Coralville.

I had this in CT. It was very hoppy and absolutly delicious. Not at all like a typical IPA, but a very good beer to kick back with just about any time.

Excellent taste. Somewhat refreshing, and has a great hoppy favor to it. One of the best IPAs by far.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2007 Well balanced, highly sessionable IPA. Nice for the days when the 90-min is a bit much. Very sweet & smooth. Along with Victory Hop-Devil & others, mid-atlantic region is a good place to be for a hop-head.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Sweet lemon-danish and pear aromas; viscous body and balanced biscuity sweet finish; lightly floral, pine and fruit hoppiness and some pleasent medicinal notes; one of the better strait-up IPAs. Yummy.

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Copper body with a yellowish thin head. Aroma is hoppy, maybe a little bit a citrus hint. Very subtle nose on this beer. The hoppyness starts light, then peek and finish clean. There is a bit of an earthy or grassy flavor through out. Gooood Beer.

Wow! Ive been hearing about this for a while so I was stoked to find it in Austin on a recent trip. A crisp, refreshing IPA that exemplifies all my favorite IPA qualities. Great American hop aroma and flavor from beginning to end; no aspect is unexplored. Body is full and malty but only in proportion to the hop bitterness and flavor. Spicy high carbonation brings out the best part of the flavor. My new favorite IPA. I just wish I could get it here.
