From a bomber into a pint glass. Pours a very, very light yellow with a ton of fluffy white head. lots of lacing too. Mild floral hops aroma but nothing special. Mouthfeel is very light, more like an apa than an Ipa. Very little malt, but that’s OK. Taste falls a little flat. What’s there I do like, but it’s pretty light-weight. Little bit of tropical fruit and plenty of flowers. A good solid IPA but nothing special. I do like the light body and how easy to drink it is. I also think it was less than $4 so that’s a winner. rougeau13 (3039) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2013 Clear amber with a frothy off-white head and fairly heavy lacing. Aroma of citrus, caramel, pine, and toast. Taste is well hopped though not incredibly bitter and relatively thin on the malt side. Medium bodied but maybe on the lighter side and dry. Very refreshing IPA.

The IPA pours clear light amber with a decent foamy white head. The aroma is bitter and lightly sweet hops, very pure. The flavor is similar, hop profile is not potent but consistent throughout. There is not much sweetness or bitterness, just pure hops throughout, nothing unique or surprisingly good. pjwalsh2 (87) - Palos Park, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2011
1. Look – A somewhat hazy pale amber color IPA with a medium head that sparkles a bit.
2. Sniff – It has a citrusy hop nose with some a subtle piney aroma.
3. Sip – This medium bodied IPA has a strong bitter taste from start to finish. It also has a long bitter dry finish.
4. Another Look – This IPA is an above average ale with average lacing and good carbonation.
5. Evaluate – Overall, this is an assertively bitter IPA that only bitter ale drinkers would enjoy. It also has a woody taste that is noticeable towards the backend. I would only recommend to serious IPA fans interested in a big bitter beer.

Pours light amber with small white head that dissipates rather quickly. Hop bouquet of fruit, citrus, and pine with some earthiness in the nose. Taste is similar to the nose with solid hop bitterness and a dry finish. Slightly better than average IPA at best.

Copperish amber color with a frothy white head. Belgian lace is great. Aroma has a very fresh aspect. It’s like grapefruit zest! Taste is bitter but the mellowness overpowers any astringent qualities. Finish is smooth with a bitter aftertaste. slsenior (62) - - NOV 18, 2011
Light color but a solid IPA. Very hoppy and not too sweet. Good overall flavor. Above average IPA. User29624 (1683) - - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours cooper with a white head. Light citrus and pine aroma. Decent hop flavor, but not over powering. Decent beer. zonmei (36) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2011
6 pack 12 oz.
Pours clear amber with snow white fluffy thick head. The head quickly dissipated (maybe dirty hotel glass?)
Great IPA taste. The hops taste wonderful but aren’t very prominent in the nose.
The aftertaste is a bit bitter but not the citrus-like bite of a over-hoppy drink. Mdbeerfan (19) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Pours golden with light flat head. Very clean tasting, crisp with lots of hops and pine. Ends with a rather bitter kind of harsh finish that I didn’t really care for. Minus the finish, the rest of the beer is just overall mediocre. It did have some nice points like a interesting slightly sweet aroma, and plenty of hops, but that finish just kills it for me.
