A: brilliant amber under a 1’ white foam cap that produces sheets of lace.
S: woody, earthy hops
T: fruit and citrus up front, with a little sweetness and then by mid-palate it becomes bitter and dries out with a little hop driven astringency, culminating in a long bitter finish. The bitterness is herbal.
M: Clean, medium body and medium low carbonation.
O: A very freshing beer with big hops.

My current favorite go-to ipa. I like it slightly better than Sculpin, which is a pretty awesome ipa. If you like your ipa's to taste "bright" and be boozy yet frighteningly drinkable, this one's for you.

A: crystal clear; bronze colored; 1 finger off white head that receded to a thin collar; very little lacing;

S: a heavy dose of pine with a hint of tropical fruit behind it;

T: all pine with moderate long lasting bitterness at the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish if you give it a minute;

O: so many IPAs I taste today feature citrusy or tropical fruit flavors; it was nice to get some pine character; not much complexity to it, but nice just the same;

What a great beer from the get-go! Appearance is a huge cream-colored, long lasting head with lots of lace, and a clear, honey amber color. Aroma is equal parts grapefruit and resin with caramel malt and hints of cereal. Flavor’s just spot on balanced with perfect amounts of malt sweet, hop bitter, carbonic tang. Body is dialed in too. I want more!!

L- light amber or deep golden, not much head retention, nice lacing
S- VERY nice smell to this brew. some grass and herbs dominated mostly by a sweet citrus scent. Tantalizing and inviting.
T- I would call this beer "hopped to perfection." or perhaps "perfectly balanced" would be a hophead's declaration. You get pine and herbal hops, but a citrus hop ties it all together nicely.
M- medium body, nice carb

O- This is one of my go to beers. It is very nice and enjoyable. The price is right and the taste is right.

Beautiful light copper / dark orange color. Fantastic hop aroma - balanced and not overwhelmingly bitter, piney, floral, or citrusy. A perfect aroma if there ever was one. Tatse is initially wonderful for hop lovers - more earthy and fruity than piney, then oh-so-slightly bitter towards the end, but more vegetative with citrus and floral undetones. Feel is perfect from my can poured into a slightly chilled pint glass. As close to perfection as I have tasted.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Amber gold liquid topped by a quickly receding off white foam. Flowery-earthy, citrus and pine notes greet the nose. Tastes of mild grapefruit pith, unripe papaya, green apple, hints at pineapple. Moderate bitterness. Flavors and bitterness fade quickly into a biscuity malt which leaves the palate clean and refreshed. Medium body holds together well without faults. Overall this seems like a tasty, drinkable, enjoyably straightforward IPA that neither disappoints or distinguishes itself from many other excellent IPAs.

Can poured into a nonic pint glass

A: Pours deep golden amber with a frothy off white head that settles and laces well.

S: Citrus hops, a bit floral, some pine, a touch of dankness, and caramel malt sweetness.

T: Bright citrus hops, grapefruit and orange, a little pine, hints of tropical fruit, and a nice caramel malt sweetness to balance it out.

M: Maybe a bit towards the lighter side of medium body, moderate carbonation, very refreshing.

O: This one really hits the spot on a warm day. I love it!

Meh, not really my thing. I guess this is for people who like their IPAs more bitter than flavorful.

Great beer at a great price. This has become my go to beer. The value of this beer is incredible. Quite bitter (which I love) but may not be everyone's favorite.

highest ba rated beer I've tried so far... I want to like it more but there are lower rated ipa's that i would take over this if made to choose. Taste is subjective so don't hate. still it's a really good beer.

Poured into a Spiegelau (bottle date best by 5/6/15). I need to get better at picking the freshest IPAs... this might be a little off due to the fact that there are obviously fresher Hop Nosh to be had. Anyways. Really nice looking brew. Solid finger of foamy, eggshell head, slightly cloudy golden amber hue. Ample carbonation throughout. Up front bitterness on the nose, and a slight hint of pine. Kind of one note aroma. Some generic hop bitterness on the front of the tongue, bit of lemony citrus, a slight yeasty estery note (seemed out of place), just a hint of the 7.3% alcohol coming through as well. Refreshing mouthfeel, with a lingering bitterness. Clean, good I guess. Might try an ultra-fresh bottle to reconsider my review, but hard to justify that this is any different from all of the other IPAs out there.

Terrific IPA. Citrus and pine hope with a solid malt backbone, complimenting sweetness with grapefruit in the aftertaste that lingers. Very smooth and well done.

This is an exceptional IPA. Very floral and packs a great bitterness punch. Seems higher than the 82 IBU listed, but in a good way. Wicked good

Appearance: Golden, somewhat of a haze. nice lacing on glass
Smell: grapefruit, toasty
Taste: awesome big hop taste up front but very nicely balanced out with only a slight bitter aftertaste
Mouthfeel: medium body
Overall: Love this beer. It is a very solid IPA and i highly recommend it. I have had it in bottles and cans and for some reason the cans seem to taste even better yet

Really good, if I hadn't tried hop slam the same day this would have probably been even higher in my esteem. But I will buy this beer many more times

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Clear but hazy, a lighter burnt orange body. A cream colored head leaves a soapy film with lots of thick bands of lacing.

Aroma: Herbal, spicy hops, with a very faint sweet caramel note.

Taste: Very hoppy, herbal, bitter, spicy up front until a clever little sweet malt note slides in unexpectedly. Bitter hoppy finish but with a nice cedary flair.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: Nice balance in this but definitely weighs on the side of spicy hops and cedar.
