As a resident hop-head, this is one of my favorite regional India/imperial pale ales. A bit expensive in my vicinity in relation to other great local craft beers, but evidently worth it.

Draft at the source. Bright golden yellow color, small white head. Hard to judge ghe aroma of this puppy, since we were sitting inside the brewery with a delicious scent of sweet malt wafting over us. But the taste was nicely balanced, not too bitter, and very easy to drink.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is my favorite Troegs beer. Everything is spot on as far as an IPA goes. This tastes extremely similar to their pale ale, but just stronger and it is dry hopped. This has a light malty backbone with strong citrus/grapefruit flavors from the hops.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice golden semi-hazy color with an almost pure white head that has great lacing. Aroma is nice blend of citrus and fruits. It could be a little stronger. Flavor is initially a light bitterness with citrus and pine notes. It ends with a nice alcoholic bitter finish. Mouthfeel is full and carbonation is average. Overall this is a solid IPA but could be a little stronger and there could be a little more taste.

Pours golden with fluffy white head. Smells very floral. Taste is ample hops with a soft honey sweetness. Smooth, slightly stick texture. Great taste!

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Absolutely awesome. Diverse hop profile is intensely complex yet it still manages to be refreshing. Glad they finally make this year round.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Pours honey gold with perfect clarity and a frothy head of foam that stuck to the glass like cotton candy. Beautiful effervescence streaming up the middle of the glass. This one’s lovely to look at. Nose is peachy, tropical & floral. Has a little dank which I love and the malt is peeking out with some biscuit and honey. Taste is near perfection with no alcohol, some hop bitter and light malt to greet the palate. Light, clean but it falls short of crisp. The hops come up catty and earthy and the malt is fat with cracker and bread. Finishes bitter and a touch of grain. Of all the Troegs I have had this one is the least impressive. Troegs has it’s own brews to compete with and this one is good, it’s even better than good but it lacked nerve.
