Ok IPA, a bit over rated I believe. The New Belgium IPAs I just drank had more flavor and kick to them than this one. The flavor is pretty straight forward. It has a medium body and a very mild bitterness in the aftertaste.

12floz bottle, BOD: 09.25.2017, $1.75 unit cost, pint glass. A golden colored American IPA with a very slight haze and small amount of head. Citrus notes dominate the nose, which while present in the nose are equal to medicinal and grainy flavors in a palate that is medium in body and bitterness. No major flaws nor is it extreme. These are not knocks, just saying of the hundred (approximate) different IPAs I can get in any grocery store in my area this would rank somewhere in the middle as an option.

12oz bottle. Odd that I never rated this til now. Had it when it came out in test run bottles back in the day. So even before tasting it mega props to this beer for making the public think about the boil more constructively....really upped the ante in that regard. Old school pine, resin, dryness. Really antiquated flavors, bold and heavy and in tune with what was hot at the time. I hope this bottle got skunked or something. Really unimpressive.

A little thin and too malty for my taste. Better takes on the style available. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Served from bottle,aroma is light citrus with slight hopes.Coloration light golden,fitting of an IPA.Carbonation is mild and light.Should have a little more carbonation.The taste,notes of citrus with slight nutty taste,overall a muted taste in my opinion.Palate is light and pleasing.Overall this is a great beer,but i prefer a more bold taste.I would recommend this beer to anyone that is crossing over to microbrewery beer.The light taste will not overpower,most that drink Bud and other cheap domestics.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2017 Semiclear medium brown with visible bubbles and medium off-white head. Sweet malt, citrus and lemongrass. Piney with barley and other malts. Pretty basic but apparently a 'classic'.
