I love this beer! This is the perfect answer to what beer my buddies and I can enjoy during any game or block party. At a reasonable price to the average domestic.. It just taste better then the average everyday beer. Light crisp finish, with just the right amount of hop. And at 5%, we can drink these all day.

This IPA has a very strong hoppy and long lasting after taste. The beer tastes very good overall. If you really take the time to taste the after taste of a beer and you like hops you will like this beer. cazort (561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2008
(On tap) This beer was extremely typical for an IPA, in all the right ways, and in none of the wrong ones. It had a cold, refreshing taste. The hops were strong, just shy of being harsh, which I think is ideal. Citrus tones are dominant in the hop aroma, and I find this pleasant. Like other IPA’s that I am a fan of, this brew has some richness to the malt, but is not heavy. It leaves a bitter aftertaste in your mouth, but not too much of one, and it is still somewhat balanced. I like it. I think this is a good IPA and I would recommend it. As I try more and more IPA’s I realize how many of them are poorly executed. This IPA passes the test, and ranks among the truly well-designed IPA’s. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 19, 2013
For what it is -- a self-proclaimed "session" IPA -- it’s ok at best. Nice enough mouthfeel albeit no aroma. Maltiness flavor is not bad tho weak. The problem here truly is that the hops are very nuanced. I’d call this more a session pale, but it’s a bit muddled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Draft. Amber beer with a cream colored head. light grapefruit and light pine aroma. Grapefruit and pine resin flavor. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and resin lingers with light earth.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 Bottle from Tailgate’s owner Wesley. Pours a beautiful golden/rust color, with a nice white head that sticks around for awhile. The nose exhibits a strong hops presence and a small hint of maltiness. Flavor wise this is a very stand up IPA with a powerful assertive hops balanced very nicely with a malt backing, it also shows nice lacing. Finish is crisp and the hoppiness lingers nicely.

Hazy orange with a medium off white head. Hoppy nose with malt and grapefruity notes. Hoppy flavour with pine, grapefruits and malty hints. Kind of a thinnish body. Finished dry and bitter though. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 10, 2012
12oz can. Looks amber. Aroma of bitter/piney hops and some pale malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. Maybe a good IPA for tailgating, but not a good IPA in general. FROTHINGSLOSH (7697) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a bright orange-amber color with a large creamy/soapy yellow-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet yeasty, bready and had a light citric hop presence. The flavor was sweet, tart and tangy with notes of Sweettart candies, lemon, bread dough and pepper. Medium length tart, tangy lemon and pepper finish. Medium body. Ok. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - AUG 9, 2012
It’s OK, but nothing great. A fairly crisp, light IPA. Citrus hop flavor. It was refreshing, although a little thin and a bit of metal to it.
