Fantastic, in yo face IPA! Very nice, clean finish. Nicely unbalanced (heavy duty hop character). What an IPA should be.

Citrus and Pine notes appeal to the senses on this one. Has plenty of hop character for the hop heads out there. I believe that Delaware has put its self on the map with this one. I keep it on tap on a regular. I love the nice foamy nutty head and the great lacing it leaves in the glass. I say if you have not yet tried this IPA that you hurry out and put your hands on it as soon as possible.

Sampled @ GBBF day 3. Lightly hazy orange color, small off-white head. Smell and taste moderate to heavy malty, lovely hoppyness, plenty of tropical fruit influence, eosin, pine and a lovely bitterness. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Very nice!

Just had my first one on draft at Bethany Blues in Lewes. Goes down so smooth, I prefer Dogfish 60 or 90, but wanted to try this one. I will get it again sometime, its great.

This is a realing solid IPA. Has a big pine citrus aroma. Nice hoppy taste with flavors of grapefruit, orange peel and piney notes with a malt finish. Very tasty

Amber, frothy head that leaves lacing. Huge citrus character with well balanced hops. Average carbonation. Very interesting

Reviewed 12/08/2012. 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. A: Pours a vaguely cloudy copper color. The head is a two finger offwhite color with the excellent texturing i expect from a good IPA. Lacing is patchy but somewhat consistent. S: Im really liking the variety of hops this provides. Not only does it feature both pink grapefruit and mango from citrusy hops, theres also a spicy pepper note from piny hops. Malts are generally neutral. T: Much like the aroma, this IPA hits a nice middle ground between citrus and pine flavors. An initial hint of vague malt sweetness is washed away by a midtaste of melon rind and grapefruit, before finishing with spicy pine notes. This might be one of the most complex IPAs Ive ever had before, successfully pulling out a melange of various hop flavors (alongside light maltiness) at differing points in the flavor progression. The fact it manages to fuse this subtle complexity with high drinkability is just gravy. M: The texture is never too heavy or too light on the palate. It is, however, a hair too sharp, especially near the finish. Carbonation is just right. O: This really needs more love. The IPA I think this is closest to in terms of its flavor profile is FW Union Jack - and thats mighty high praise. Maybe Im a homer and I just like it because its both inexpensive and one of the few craft offerings so readily available in my area...nah, this is just an excellent IPA.

Very citrus grapefruit aroma, taste follows aroma. Golden yellow in color with some lace. Very drinkable IPA

This is a great IPA! Get it when you have the chance. I found a sixer of this at the Wegmans at Collegeville. They also have the DIPA, which, now, I cant wait to try. But back to the No 3. It pours a light copper color with a decent-sized off-white head. The head leaves some nice and sticky lacing around the glass. The nose is a well-balanced profile of caramel malt and flowery hops. The flavors start out that way, but about halfway through, turn toal hops. The hops arent completely dry and spicy though. I get a lot of tropical fruit, herbs, lemon, orange and grass. The beer finishes really well-balanced, with notes of bread, caramel, yeast, grass, pine and fruit. Excellent IPA!
