This is good stuff. Ive begun to like Indian Pale Ales, and this is as good as any other. One of Harpoons better brews.

Pours orange/brass. Has an incredible hoppy taste that adds to the various spices that are in the aroma. When I opened the bottle the entire room smelled like hops.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2007 Bottle, from mug. Bottled Oct 06, sampled Jan 07. Frothy white head, decent lacing, pale amber body. Strong apricot aroma, very fruity and floral. Medium-full with an oily texture. Flavor is all hops, which is fine by me. Finishes bitter and fairly long. The hops and alcohol produce a beautiful earthy vapor in the sinuses. A solid American IPA.

This beer pours a light gold color with a moderate head and a little lacing on the glass. The aroma has some fruits in it and some spices as well. The taste was fairly smooth, but not very hoppy. The carbonation is evident in the flavor. Decent beer.

Pours a gold hue with asmall one finger white head. Aroma of tropical fruit and pine. Tastes of tropical fruit, peaches, and light hops. Very refreshing.

I really like this IPA! I had heard some great stuff about Harpoon IPA and it truly lived up to the hype.

changxao (104) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2004 Nice orange/amber color with a small white head, leaves good lacing. Hoppy and moderately spicy aroma. Flavor has some fruity and spicy notes; the palate is slightly thin. Finish is bitter, but not overwhelmingly so.

beergod (103) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Im a real fan of IPAs and before i tried this id already been warned that this was way mild! This ale pours a very light copper color with a small head that quickly faded. On the nose there was hops but very mild. It reminds me of a weak pale ale with no character. If you like a hoppy beer dont bother with this. This is like Playskool my first IPA! Dont bother!

winterlager (101) - Orchard Park, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2003
Pours a clear amber, with a fruity hoppy aroma. This is a very smooth enjoyable IPA. Lots of flavor and you have to love those hops.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2005 I used to think this was the desert island IPA. With an incredible balance of all attributes. However, I think it has lost some of its luster. It is just a lot blander than I remember...
