Our India Pale Ale has a pronounced hop bitterness and wonderful hop aroma. The taste immediately gives away the high hop characteristics with malt aspects playing second fiddle to this fantastic example of the style.

Bought in a can. Dark Amber color. Good head on the pour into a glass and nice lacing while drinking. I'd say slightly above average IPA. Would buy again.

Poured into a traditional pint. Great copper-ish color, strong head with good retention. Spotty lacing, Don't think this is quite fresh (couldn't find any dating on the can, bought as a single), but still has some hop presence against the malt bill. Pleased by the mouthfeel--I expected this to be thinner. Would love to get fresh the next time I'm near Papillion.

Was looking forward to trying this. I was very disappointed. Bought a six pack. Drainpoured the one I opened. Will give the rest away...a mess of flavors..

Pours a pale, brassy-copper in color, and with excellent clarity. A pale tan head tops it and leaves a nice, sticky ring of Brussels lace as it falls. Looks good so far.

Nose is a full-on hop blast; Ruby Red grapefruit, lemon zest, and a piney zing. Yeast is there, but lighter. A touch of darker and crystal malt.

Sweet-prickly and spicy on the first sip -- the spiciness from the hops, of course. Reasonably smooth and creamy mouthfeel, medium-bodied... and gently warming at 6.9%.

A really nice, lingering bitterness accentuates the mouthfeel, the heat, and the lightly-sweet character of this one.

For lack of* a better "all-in" descriptor, Two Hearted: If you like that classic brand, you will like this one as well, but it is a touch cleaner, meaning a little bit less yeast character, a little brisker on the palate.

It's a winner, for sure.

*And I'm feeling a bit lazy, and... damn! That can went down so quickly that I need to run to the 'fridge for a cold one, STAT!

Poured into a tulip from the can. There's a date code on the bottom in yellow, splotchy inkjet ink, but I'll be damned if I can read it in this light...

Burnished copper colored with a low frothy head of dimpled off-white foam that settles out quickly to a low cap. Aroma of tangerine and mango, some subtle piney notes.

Big hop flavors upfront, lots of citrus, grapefruit rind, and sappy pine, with some floral notes. Good malt balance rides beneath, but the hops keep punching their way to the surface. Hop flavor lingers long, piney notes linger. Even mouthfeel, creamy and full, but finishes semi-tingly. Very good beer.
