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.

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

ddemmingjr (799) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2012
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

One of my favourite beers of all time. There is a reason why this brewery won the 2012 Brewery of the Year at the World Beer Cup. This is their flagship beer and for good reason. A hop lovers dream, right up my alley.

Pours a nice golden yellow with a thin beige head. Aroma consists of floral notes and fruits. Flavor has the usual hints of pine, as well as fruits, mostly grapefruit. Very drinkable, lovely offering!

From a bottle at house of brews, 5/2012. Pours pretty light color for an IPA, not cloudy at all, almost like a pale ale, golden with medium head. Lots of bubbles like champagne almost at first, but settled down after a bit. Nose just a really pleasingly intense hoppiness, I'm not getting all the citrus and complexity that other people have mentioned... It just smells like straight hops to me, and tastes the same. Really good though. A great session IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RickTStiles (826) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2012
pours very light amber with a lasting white head and plenty of lacing. aroma is yeasty, wet, and a bit acrid but with a warm sweetness. taste has notes of caramel, grapefruit, pine, lemon and bread. finish is strong and full. a very nice and all together well balanced beer that is an outstanding representation of the style.

Scipio (985) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Pours a golden red with a good off white head. Aroma is citrus and hoppy. heavy in grapefruit, some pine, orange, and a bit of pineapple. Taste is extremely hoppy. Lots of grapefruit is the dominant taste. It is piney, with moer citrus fruits; mango, lemon, pineapple. Big hoppy aftertaste. Full bodied, sticky texture, and bitter. This is one fine IPA.

solidfunk (8584) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 22, 2012
This one smells great from the outset. Fruity, almost apple aroma. Foam has staying power. Taste doesnt completely follow through, but still is quite good. Tracing good patterns, plenty of hoppy bitters. Pour an amber-like clear. From health food store in lebanon, NH.
