Best IPA I have had in a while. One of the few "true IPSs" around these days, other than from Britain. It’s a traditional style IPA, which might explain the low ratings on here. I doubt most hipsters or American beer drinkers would know what a classic IPA is supposed to taste like. You can tell right away from the carbonation and the pale color.
This is no "American Style IPA" but rather the classic style IPA. Which surprises the heck out of me coming from San Diego. Glad at least one American brewery had the cajones to go with the classic rather then trendy/modern style. hat’s off to them for that. I don’t want to speculate too much, but I would bet the brewmaster knew his English IPAs well. rhys_mavis (11) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Love this beer! The aroma is the first thing i notice about all beers and this one satisfies the nose and entices you to take gulp after gulp. Major appreciation to Karl Strauss for their extensive hops usage per recipe. Always creating a unique taste. steve_4962 (10) - USA - JUN 4, 2010

nuts, toast, roasty, citrus, herbs, woody, smoke, vanilla. An awesome IPA. Most IPAs that I drink have an large alcohol taste. Not Tower 10, smooth with a great after taste.

Bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Great balance. Aromas of caramel, grass, and citrus. Taste is sweet and bitter, well balanced and long. Palate is velvety and dry, medium-full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head. ColaKid (82) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2014
Bloody great American IPA. Great complex aroma, firm hoppy bitterness and surprisingly sessional. Goes well with spicy asian food. jknox (3) - USA - MAY 31, 2010 does not count

This is the ideal IPA. Floral, hoppy and refreshing. Great golden body with a almost too long of a lasting head. Great summer bbq beer. Benzai (15608) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2016
Bottle shared with PotjeBier and MarcoDL @ Beer Temple. Hazy light orange color, average sized off-white head. Aroma is malts, hops, resinous and piney. Nice! Taste malts, again hops, piney and resinous, grassy, a superb bitterness. Suitable decent body and carbonation. Lovely stuff!
