Allright, now I'm totally confused.
I first had the Hardcore IPA ( http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/16315/41505 ) and that is their DIPA/IIPA. When I reviewed that I felt it was muted, soft, enjoyable, malty.
Now I'm reviewing their standard IPA, my first assumption was it would be a sessionable version of their DIPA... but really this is hoppier then their DIPA. That's odd.
I'm getting hops/pine/citrus in the nose and a suprisingly bitter aftertaste along with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Lots of grapefruit.
I can't complain as I paid only $6.99 for a bomber because the store couldn't push the product. I think their DIPA was fantastic but this one is a bit of a let down.

This is almost a session IPA, not boozy not overwhelming hops. A well designed beer. I say almost because its right on the cusp with an abv in the 5-6% range. Its very drinkable. The price was good for a bomber. I would prefer to get this in a six pack, but I have only seen the big boys around here. I love hoppy beers and this one has a good amount of hop presence there, however, its also not a Stone IPA either.
Color: Mild bronze, a decent amount of head that remained throughout.
Smell: Balance of malt and hops, not an intense hop aroma, but a good amount of floral hops.
Taste: Balanced. this could be my go to standard IPA if it were more readily available around here and in six packs. I am not saying they don't put this in six packs, but they are not found around here.
Overall: A pleasant experience, you could drink a few 12 oz beers or a couple of bombers and not be bombed. It has a nice IPA flavor, it is what a regular IPA should taste like.
