Changed (462) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2012
12 oz bottle from Ithaca Coffee Company. Pours quite light for a beer of this magnitude. Little white head, little lacing, quite carbonated. Aroma is a ridiculous amount of hops. I think the only beer that Ive smelled that was so overwhelmingly hops was Hop Stoopid or Palate Wrecker; but, those beers dont come close to this. Taste wise, this thing is grapefruit, citrus hops, amazingly smooth and not extremely bitter on the end for a 7.5%. Just an absolutely fantastic beer!

JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2012
On draft. Nice golden pour. Hoppy aroma with a little pine end citrus. Taste is simply awesome. Hoppy with a good malty finish. One of the best of the style (IPAs) out there, if not the best.

I first tried this beer at the Oregon Brewfest in 2010 and I fell in love. For me it is the perfect IPA. Nice hop aroma and extremely smooth well-balanced taste. Drinking this on draft gives me a beergasm every time and its hard for me to stop drinking it once I start. Purely delicious.

beerbastard (842) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 2, 2012
This is the classic IPA. Malty with that northwest hop nose. Perfectly balanced hop, malt and bitterness flavors of citrus pine and fruits balanced with a strong malt backbone. Finishes clean and dry with a slight bitter end.

smboselli (146) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2012
On tap at a work function, came with a high recommendation and did not disappoint. Citrus & pine on the nose, punch of hops on the palate. Lively carbonation, well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: pours clear golden, small, dense, off white head. Nose: resin, pine, peach, citrus hops. Quite nice. Flavors of resin, pine, sweet caramel malts, dry hopping really noticeable. Crisp, sticky on the lips as it's like hemp oil on there. Nice, short bitter bite. You can see why it's a classic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
