This formidable India Pale Ale has a hop aroma that demands attention. The bold, citrus hop flavor is balanced by a dry malt character making this refreshing ale a true classic.

Been outta the loop for awhile but its great to be back rating beers again! This IPA pours a copper color with frothy head. A light aroma of floral scents lightly present upon my nose.. Upon first taste, it has a piney, hop infested flavor that almost reminds me of a cali brewed IPA style.. Not too malty on the backside and its has no overwhelming aftertaste.. I like its original punch, wish it had a little more under the hood but all said, its not a bad brew. Possibly even could qualify as a "sessionable" IPA

One of my favorite IPAs from my home town. Nice bitter taste and a good aftertaste. Really liked the appearance. Good aroma.

Sweet malty aroma and a golden hazy pour with little head. Lots of malt flavor for an IPA and it has a sweet caramel malt finish. Not what I expected but good nevertheless.

Transfer from BA review on 3-24-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance Pours a nice orange amber color with a one finger orange tinted head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to give lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma is sweet of tropical fruits of tangerine and mango with other fruit aromas of a light apple and some other sweeter notes of caramel. Mixed with these sweeter aromas is a citrus hop aroma of a grapefruit as well as light lemon smell and some breadier aromas. Taste The taste starts out with a bready and malty flavor with flavors of a light fruit flavor. The fruit was largely of an orange and pear flavor upfront with some lighter fruit flavors of apricot. As the flavor advances hop flavors of a grapefruit nature greet the tongue. The grapefruit remains relatively constant throughout and is joined by some more hop flavors. The hop flavors that come at the end are of a sour lemon flavor as well as some lighter herbal flavors. At the end the mix of fruit, citrus, bready and hop flavors leaves a lightly bitter sour flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is fairly average overall. Not the best feel for the style in my opinion as it is slightly too light to accentuate the relatively moderate hoppier flavors, although even with this being so, it was OK for the more sour lemon flavors of the beer, keeping them from becoming too overpowering. Overall Nothing too special here. The beer was not quite hoppy enough and had a little too much sourness.

An IPA that is past its prime. Not much if anything on the nose. Some lemon? Golden pour from draft, good bit of biscuity malt, with a bit of hop at the end. Wet pine?

Draft pour at Beer Camp. Decent cites hop aroma, sneaky 7% ABV. Not over hopped and somewhat balanced hop/malt. Not bad at all.
