Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the Hooters in Chester, VA.
Aroma- Has a strong hop aroma with some citrus tossed in.
Appearance- Pours a fairly clear golden color with a large white head.
Taste- A real big hop flavor with some malt added.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate to heavy carbonation, has a big hop finish.
Overall- This is a good example of a very hoppy IPA, i enjoyed it.

The look of this beer is the most appealing thing about it. The smell is just very basic ipa, nothing seems to stand out. First taste is rather nice but then it lingers and not in a good way. Almost soapy. Very average ipa, nothing terrible but far from great.

Nothing special just a typical run of the mill ipa.

Oh the ipa fad- everyone making money by selling ipas and trying to separate the over hyped, the good, the mediocre and the bad. I got this as part of a mix and match 6 pack of different dc area brews when I was recently visiting the area. Just a kind of "bleh" ipa. Not Really an ipa, more of a pale ale. No real aroma, no discernible hop flavor, just kind of bleh.

I love me some ipa's but wouldn't try this one again

It is exactly like having your mouth washed out with soap. Not in a good way.
