12 oz bottle bought at a liquor store in Middleton CT. This was in the cooler but the cooler was turned off. After the manager asked me a few questions about my id i was actually able to purchase this. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Nose s of old hops carmel, citrus, floral. The grains are coming out a little in the flavors here. Otherwise floral lemon grapefruit citrus old faded hops. Hmm. This is losing a lot because of freshness. All IPAs are best on tap and fresh. This one isnt. You lose, but I wont be terribly harsh.

Good color with a foamy small head. Taste of slight citrus. Fairly watery though. A little light on the hops.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Draught. Pours a gold colour with a small white head. Aroma of citrus hops, earthy and hints of malts. Initial taste is not as hoppy from what was expected, the hops were almost nuetral in the background while hints of malts lingered in. Body was thin and watery and the palate was short. No head retention. It was a good stab by harpoon.

Slightly enjoyable aroma, average flavor, and nothing much special. Having said that, I love this refreshing beer and it is a wonderful everyday drinker. Nice dry flavor and finish and a light hint of that sour ipa flavor.

In the tradition of India Pale Ales(IPAs), this copper colored ale is floral, medium bodied, with a distinct hop finish. Originally our summer seasonal in 1993, it is now available year-round. Harpoon IPA was ranked atop both domestic and imported IPAs by Beer Connoisseur Magazine.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2016 12 oz bottle. Pours an orange body with short, white head. Aroma of soft citrus hops and soap. Taste is citric hops as well. A one-note, bland IPA thats neither memorable nor offensive.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - JAN 24, 2008
Clear, golden beer with a small white head. Sweet, fruity and floral hops flavor, almost bubblegum-like. The taste is a bit thin, not bitter enough for an IPA, some malt flavor. Unremarkable IPA, any store that sells it probably sells better.

Diego (79) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 15, 2002
Not the worlds best IPA. Lacks the true hop bite and has minimal head. I did enjoy the aroma and thought...Wondered, if the draft might be just a tad better. Still, any IPA is pretty darn good as far as Im concerned. Makes me feel like getting out there and mowing the lawn, er, I dont really have a lawn yet but...Some day.

Super hoppy. The epitome of hop. Good for what it is, but its not my deal.
