By definition, an India Pale Ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale-and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy flavor and hop aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.

This is a very good IPA. I didnt really care for on first taste, but as the glass went on it seem to get better. Clear rich golden color.

This was my first IPA and this made quite an impression. Strong aroma of hops. I like the pour, a bright orangish, amber color with an off-white head that diminished to a decent lacing. Someone described the taste as lemony, and I guess that about hits the main notes of this beers flavor. I wasnt crazy about it at first, but as I got towards the end of my bottle, I quite enjoyed it. And although the alchohol is not prevalent in the taste, I was feeling it pretty strongly by the end of the pint and a half.

After chasing 3 kids around Sea World on a warmer than normal October day, I came home to this, and wow did it hit the spot. Hops, hops hops! Citrus aroma, golden color, very bitter, and the alcohol is well-hidden. An excellent IPA, my favorite.

Good IPA. Pours gold with an average sized white head. Lively carbonation. Starts slightly sweet with a nice bitter finish. Very well balanced and easy to drink. Bitter, but still smooth. Hoppy, but not overly so. If your preference is an insanely hoppy and floral IPA, there are other beers to try.

On tap at Brickwall in Asbury. Goldein in color. A bit of haze in the apperence. Big time aroma of hops. Flavor is of floral hops, some grapefruite and pine. Very crisp. I like this brew. Decently balanced. My taste if for more malt less hops. Liked it didnt love it. But will have it again.

A sparkling amber with a thick white head. HEAVY citrus/pine aroma. The flavor the hops impart on this beer match perfectly with the sweetness of the malt giving it a really nice, fruity taste. Finishes a little too bitter for me but nowhere near as overpoweringly as Stones Ruination. Very, very drinkable which can let the 6.9% sneak up on you. Very, very good.

Great beer citrus flavors in the hops, not overpowering with the hops, but most definately prevalent, just a good all around IPA

12 oz bottle poured a golden orange with a little head. Aroma is super citrusy and amazing. Taste is a hop blast of flavor. Lots of citrus and pine, kinda sticky mouth feel. Long bitter aftertaste. What an awesome IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2004 mmmmm...hops. It is a clear rich gold poor with a nice white head. Very nice citrusy, floral hops in the aroma. Oh, but the hops are a powerful (and pleasureable) presence. Slight malty sweetness help balance those oh so lovely biting hops. I really love this one and would have it again in a heart beat.
