Draft, Pyramid Alehouse, Berkeley, CA. Nice IPA with a sort of dark straw/pale orange color. Hoppy and bitter with a lasting, medium-sized head.

Not the big bouquet of floral, citrus, greens I like to encounter in my IPAs, and less bitter as well. However, not a terrible IPA. Will drink when the greater IPAs are unavailable.

Nice alcohol strength, well concealed. Bold color and flavors with a preponderance of bitterness. Not overly smooth or well balanced, but tasty and drinkable nonetheless.

Although not as strong as I usually like my IPA, this one is pretty good. Has a slightly fruity taste. Very affordable as six pack.

NIce spicy hop aroma. Good color. Good Hop Flavor. It seems a little light on body however for an IPA. Also it seemed a little over carbonated. A decent craft Amercian Style IPA

Pours as a muddy amber, not particularly clear in an IPA glass. Very little hop aroma. Tastes very bitter with a little bit of malt flavors to back it. It’s like Pyramid added all hops early in the boil. This beer was a complete miss and disappointing for pyramid.

Coppery amber color with very fine cream colored head. Aroma is floral and "beery." Flavor is caramelly with floral notes, followed by really strong herbal bitterness. Tastes good, but too long of a bitter finish for me.

I don’t like the twist off - actually I hate it. Medium, quickly dissipating head. The beer is noticeably less carbonated than most which is a nice change. Zesty, bitter hops reign throughout and the flavor lingers long after swallow. I picture hops in my head as I drink this one. India Pales are my favorite beers and this one doesn’t disappoint. I have others that I rate higher, but this is a nice IPA.

This isn’t one of my favorites thus far, but not bad at all. Has a nice golden color. Worth trying.
