A very nice B+ IPA. Citrus, west coast hops. Color is OK and I would be very happy to have this at a party or a bar. Didnt blow me away, but extremely respectable. If I was on a desert Island for 5 years I would be very happy with 500 cases of this beer

AirForceHops (6952) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 10, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Crystal clear gold, thin layer of white head. Nose is kind of like cat pee. Taste is a juicy, wet hop with big, fruity grapefruit and a burst of citrus. Active carbonation, medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Bitterness lingers just slightly. Taste is really nice. The cat pee nose is not my thing but the flavor is really exceptional. It drinks like a 5 or 6 % beer, not one over 7.5%. Really well done!

Solid IPA, though not a contender for the top spot. Its well balanced and complex, though not as smooth of a finish as, say, Dogfish Head.

doubelknv3 (1088) - Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Golden with frothy white head...great lacing. Citrus, mild grapefruit, sweet malt notes, and mild floral aroma. Full bodied, flavor like aroma, mild syrupy notes, finishing hops add to lasting bittering finish and aroma notes. Decent balance with a medium bitter finish...dry but lingers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rosenbergh (11374) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2012
Draught at the Bierkraft, Brooklyn, New York.
Clear pale golden colour with small white head. Fresh hoppy sweetness with mild bitterness in aroma. Exotic fruity sweet hops in flavour. Balanced. Nice grapefruity resiny bitterness. Very tasty. This is what American IPA should be.

MrBeerFanatic (1050) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Pours mostly orange with light yellow hues producing a creamy head. Aromas of candy sugars, citrus hops with a little pine, and caramel. Flavors of dry citrus/piney hops with a decent balence of caramel and hints of apricot. Big bitter aftertaste and bite. Dry and medium sweet. The main hop note is of mostly dominate citrus or grapefruit. Mostly an overpowing of the hops where the malts stay back mostly. Above average ipa.

JStax (6006) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a brandy snifter. Pours a copper with a huge fluffy whitish head with about as webby of lacing as you could imagine. The aroma is kind of dank and tropical. Quite an interesting combination while remaining immensely appealing. Taste is bitter like orange peel, maybe even some grapefruit bitterness. Loads of citrus here. Very tasty. Dry finish with a sticky mouthfeel.

AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - AUG 29, 2012
nice average IPA with a good bitter/malt ratio - typical aromas and flavors - nothing sets this one out in front of anything but nothing sets it behind either

JulienHuxley (5762) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2012
On tap at Reef. Dark copper pour with white head. Aroma of piney hops, some orange, caramel, rich sticky hop resin. Flavor is smooth, hoppy bitterness, almost sweet. Palate is almost creamy, fine carbonation. Good stuff
