A typical IPA but well done... bit above average. Nice orange color with head that laces well. Floral and citrusy hops lend it a nice aroma and the taste is good. Light hop wallop makes it easy drinking. However, high ABV makes me unable to have more than two of these in a row. Also not easily found by myself. If it's easy to find for you, it's a solid IPA choice but not an exceptional IPA. Basically, it's something between a typical IPA and an excellent IPA.

03/04/14 On tap. Very nice stuff. This shows how a well behaved member of the hop family of brews can please and I am very pleased. Wonderful balance. Smells hoppier than it tastes. Good cold. Doesn't look like I'll get try it at room temp. At 6.5% this should be monitored carefully as it very deceptive & delicious.
***Note: Not sure why I dis'sed the nitro experience last year (see below). It may be that the nitro addition of more fizz let the temperature raise & open up too much hoppiness. Note the mention of "good cold". I tend to forgive the author as he's usually drinking on the job. Jul'14
08/20/13 On nitro tap. Let me start by saying that I'm not a hops fan, but this is beer reinforce that. This is the first time I've ever truly regret not having had a taste first. I've spent the money & will drink it down, as not to fret the bar, but this should have a warning label. IMO this is way off base & I see the Rate Beer give it an 88 rating? A jaundiced view, no doubt.
