What can I not say about this super Ale!

The pour was a vivid golden tan, almost like a faint sunburst orange. The small but full white head stood atop of this brew. Once I put my nose into the glass, I was in hop heaven! The hop aroma came out so very bold, you could almost anticipate the bitterness.
Yet, at first sip, the bitterness was well balance with a full body, a little citrus, perhaps orange .
Each time I put my nose into the glass all that comes out is HOPS, HOPS and more HOPS. Yet the actual taste is so easy. The finish is actually very smooth and lingering. Some where down the pour, I also detected some very rip pears.
Another great one for the Gargoyle

This is a great beer. It's very hoppy, but it doesn't punch you in the face like many other beers that advertise themselves as such. Both the hops and alcohol content are potent, but very well blended. Drinkability is outstanding.

This is my favorite IPA to date.

A - Rich copper color with a nice, foamy head with consistent bubbling and moderate lacing

S - Has spicy floral hoppy aroma

T - Strong taste of hops with hints of pine and grapefruit. Some nice bitterness, which is mellowed out by a bit of spiciness

M - A rich, carbonation-filled bite

O - This is an outstanding IPA, top tier, however I still prefer the ENJOY BY IPA.

12 oz. bottle. across the board consistency.

a-beautiful deep golden ipa that is quite clear. i love the head...looks like i just plopped some pancake batter into the griddle. thick, white popping bubbles.

s-piney attack in the nose. very resin-y. i love the assertiveness.

t-full, well-rounded ipa i would expect...but there is a crispness that adds points. i almost taste juniper...

m-perfect. thick. thin. thick. thin. neither. both. carbonation is simply where it should be. not flat. not sparkly. where it seems thick, it's fluid....where it's thin, it's heavy, deep...what balance!

d-101%. more sips suggest insane food pairings: calamari, garlic gread, etouffe, oysters and tabasco...throw out the dixie, please...
