I have found an IPA that I truly enjoy and that’s why it’s going into my BHoF!! For those that know me, I’m a malt-head diligently working to gain an appreciation for IPAs. Squatters has just proved to be the ones that will definitely help me down the hops-path! This brew poured up an amber colored body with a foamy off-white colored head with outstanding retention and lacing effects on the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon-grass, pine, and hops. Flavors of the same but all so very well balanced that the character of this brew is so hard to describe adequately. There’s a slight sweet malty hit on the finish that brings the flavors of this brew full circle! No harsh aftertaste and a very clean and refreshing finish. mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - AUG 30, 2007
Poured a golden copper color with a thick solid cap. The nose was a perfume of fresh hop cones. Very piney and flowery with a tiny hint of pale malt beneth. The taste was fresh with notes of spruce needle, grapefruit zest and flower pettal. An ample amount of dry and roasted malts compliment nicely the fresh hoppiness. The finish was dry and leafy with a body that has a medium feel. This is an awsome IPA The ample amount of hops mask the alcohol well and provide for a great session. Definitely check this one out. Did I mention the fresh hops? ibaconi (4) - Richmond, USA - AUG 20, 2013 does not count
Absolutely magnificent! Without a doubt the finest IPA I’ve ever tasted, and I’ve tasted a few! The hop balance is perfect. Nice hop flavor which doesn’t fade to bitter as many IPAs tend to do. drwharfe631 (4) - Morgan City, Louisiana, USA - JAN 13, 2013 does not count
Very tasty; a light copper color, floral hoppy aroma. A light to medium IPA. beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Slightly copper hued, more so yellow with a solid with cap and tons of lacing in sheets. Nice aroma of freshly dried hop cones, leafy, grassy, fresh, with a smallish pale malt backing. Taste is lovely fresh with hop tones, leafy, green, grassy, nice bittering tones that are alpha acid packed with goodness and just mild enough to not over do it. Pleasingly placed malts add some zip of dried bread grains. The hops are really nice in fresh, very yummy with just a bit of pine and citric things to keep in some interest, but the freshness of leafyness is what made me keep on drinking this stuff. My is it tasty! Medium body feel and well carbonated with a substantial hop bittering thats fresh and leafy. Actually reminded me of a toned down Dreadnaught. That may be saying much, but htis stuff really was nice. I must have got a super fresh sixer, cuz it was fantastic.

Hops are clean and expressive. Malt flavor is light but very appealing. Some sweetness balances light bitterness creating an easy and accessible balance. Finish is long and complex. Hanan (86) - NW Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2014
6r from total wine. Cold mug first then out if bottle. Taste excellent blend of hops and goodness. Aroma lingers too much grapefruit. Hint of piney. Rather have more piney less grapefruit. Could use more hops bit defeats 6.5 abv. Solid for abv but again, less grapefruit needed.

Pours a honey golden color. Lightly hazy with slight particulates floating about. Nice, thick, tight eggshell colored head, about two fingers. Big ol bubbles. Pretty good longevity, good retention, good lacing.scoobyluv (511) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2004
Aroma is phenomenal. You don’t get a lot of this in IPAs, at least, not like this. Lots of fresh fruit, especially orange. Fresh orange, fresh pineapple, fresh mango. Very fresh, it’s so unexpected, so delectable. Any hops in this will go unnoticed, because of this fresh fruitiness.
Taste is much of the same. Have you ever bitten into a fresh, and I mean fresh, orange? So sweet, and yet underlying bitterness. Sweet orange, bitter orange pith. It goes so well together. Light honey. Bread crust. Floral hops.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Dry. Bitter, but barely. Finishes clean and fresh. Odd that the malts really only come out in the finish.
Overall, this is really good. One of the best IPAs I’ve had. I expected mediocrity, but was surprised. Not a hop biting, hop forward IPA, but certainly solid. Yes, I would buy it again. I would encourage you to buy it and try it!!
humongous head. lovely golden color. hop smell euphoria and the taste is to die for. hop blast from beginning to end.with citrusy taste. if this beer wera a man, i’d fuck it. couchand (182) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 17, 2008
