I must have gotten a bad one, but the beer had floaties in it, with a strong biting not-so-great flavor. Almost no head. Definitely wouldn't drink again if I thought this was how it was supposed to be. Got it in a "Beer of the Month" club shipment, and I like IPAs so will give it another go. Addendum: I used my Fizzinator on the 2nd one. Not much of an improvement. Really just not my taste.

Taste is of grapefruit, citrus rind, and pale malt. The body of the brew was a nice mix of the hops and the malt. The end taste of this tasty brew is bitter and dry. The dryness stayed a while. I have other American IPAs that I prefer including a couple from DuClaw, but this is certainly worth a try.

This was past its prime but was still a decent brew. I imagine when fresh the hops are much more delicious, but as it is its bitter but not exceptionally tasty. Will revisit when I can find fresh.

Great IPA. Very citrusy. One of DuClaw's best. Better than Serum.

Not much nose on this. Pretty solid ipa though. Malt forward with pine following close behind. Not bad at all. Above average for style but unfortunately it probably won't get much attention in todays ipa saturated market.

12 oz bottle served in a lager glass.

This IPA is has a very light haze in an orange-amber body. The off-white head is large, very durable, and leaves lots of sticky lacing on the glass. The aroma carries nearly as much malt and hops, but the flavor is very much hop dominated. A mix of hops with pine, tropical fruit, floral, grassy and herbal elements all present. Medium bitterness.

Lively medium-high carbonation in a near medium body.
