Like the other reviewer of this beer, only through process of elimination am I able to discern that this is Maxwell's IPA. Pours a hazy golden-orange color, without much of a head, only a thin, wispy ring. Aroma of mild biscuit malt, a hint of honey, and a fruity, slightly citrusy hop profile.
Palate strikes a good balance between biscuity malt and fruity hops up front, with a good blast of citrusy hops coming to the front before the swallow. The crisp finish yields a pleasant lingering bitterness.
Body is on the creamy side, very pleasant for an English-style IPA. While not a hop monster, this is a tasty, balanced offering that is a pleasure to drink. I'd say it's a decent session ale, but I only got one bottle. I'll have to stock up on my next trip to Washington.

Ok, this does not state it is the dry-hopped version, nor dos it say hop diggity anywhere on the label, so I'll assume it's Maxwell's aven though all it says on the labe is IPA.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color, thin half-finger head, but it is sticking around, head is slightly off white.

Aroma is mildly hoppy, brown sugar, and citrus.

Ahh, the hops come thorugh on the first sip. Mild, but somewhat balanced by the malt, definately has the piney cascade hop characterisitic. There is a lingering aftertaste that is slightly perfumey, but all in all good flavor.

Nice lacing, and drinkability is ok, if you like cascade hops that linger a bit.
