This beer is simply underrated. It is by far one of the best IPAs that I've had. The body and hoppiness is a little lighter then the crown jewel (Headytopper) but it's got to be the most refreshing 7.5%abv IPA that I have ever tasted.

The grapefruit and pine taste are out of this world. Although the body in a little thinner than a double IPA the taste is all there. At a 75 IBU the bitterness and ABV are balanced astonishing well.

If you are a hop head that loves more than just IPAs (the stouts and porters) you'll absolutely fall in love with this masterpiece.

16 ounce can poured into a 22 ounce tulip.

A--Dark golden look. Clear, with a decent head that fades quickly and leaves a tiny bit of lacing.
S--Hoppy, citrus with a bit of a piney scent. Quite nice, but also very much in line with what an IPA should be.
T--Excellent balance between the expected hoppiness of an IPA and the too often forgotten maltiness. Nice touch of citrus.
M--Tart and still a little creamy.Not especially carbonated. Quenching.
O--Excellent. A fine example of an American IPA. They come in 16 ounce cans at 7.5%, so watch what you're doing.

bought two cases of the pint cans directly from the Old Forge Brewing Co". The cases were actually canned that very morning; which equals a very fresh IPA. We took a case to the OBX, refrigerated them for two days before we opened the first one, we all enjoyed a few pints.
This beer is a good, clean IPA with a traditional nose and palate. Not too much

16oz can into tulip.

A - Clear amber with a huge white head.

S - A blast of pine, citrus, and grapefruit hops. Hints of sweet caramel malt.

T - Citrus and grapefruit supported by a toasted caramel malt backbone. Finishes with a light earthy piney bitterness and lingering sweet graininess.

M - Creamy and smooth, medium bodied. Crisp mild carbonation, slightly dry finish.

O - This is a great IPA. Balanced and flavorful, definitely on the sweeter side, but the hop profile is pretty solid. Love the 16oz can.

Like the pint can. Wish more brewers would offer this. ('Tall boys' are old school). Refreshing flavor that is unquestionably within the bounds of a classic
IPA brew. In an age when many brewers seem preoccupied with reinterpreting IPAs with heavy coffee and chocolate flavors I really appreciated this ale as an original yet authentic IPA..

Served: On-tap in a frosty-chilled goblet.

Golden caramel in color - slightly cloudy.

Decent greeting of hop aroma, somewhat piney.

Solidly hoppy IPA, but not as bitter as I expected. Crisp with a flavor that doesn't especially linger. Good choice for a not-wussy IPA. Would certainly have again, but didn't rock my hop world. :)
