This IPA is the normal Two Rows version. It is less hoppy and less extreme than their awesome Hopzilla. The beer has a nice dark brown (still a little transpart) color and the aroma is hoppy and sweet smelling. The sweetness is also found a little in the taste, which is a trademark of Two Rows. The beer still is an IPA and still is a solid beer. The aftertaste and palate are excellent. The little bit of fruit and sweetness add a nice touch to the IPA and make it memorable still.
On tap, and cast conditioned (?). A very average ipa, with floral hop and citrus notes. Big malt backbone in this one. djd07 (14366) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2009
On tap at two rows in roce village. Pours a cloudy copper with a medium creamy white head that leaves good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is very hoppy with grapefruit and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a hoppy pine flavor. Easy to drink a good IPA from Two Rows. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2009

Had this on tap at the Rice Village, Houston location. Poured a golden copper color with a medium off white head. Smelled of light grapefruit and tangy hops. Tasted of slightly sweet citrus followed by hops and ending slightly bitter. Clean mouthfeel, with little aftertaste. Dried my tongue out nicely. Good, but unremarkable.

At least it had hops. This makes it one of the better Two Rows brews I tried. It too was on the watery, thin, and bland side of things. But it was passable.

Draft at brewpub. Poured a red and brownish color. Aroma of citrus and floral hops. Taste is not as strong as the Cask IPA but still good.
I am surprised by some of the ratings as this is not a very good US IPA I found it bland and not particulary crisp SudsMcDuff (8387) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2006
