4.23/5 rDev +5.8%
Aroma here is predominately of pine resin hoppy goodness...a little earthy and malt notes peek through. However, very one sided.
Taste has an immediate crispness to it, letting you know it's indeed an IPA....but it surprises me by having a somewhat grainy, sweet body with a toasty or "husky" note to it....not that it's a bad thing, I actually quite enjoy that note and it led me to enjoy this beer. Finishes strong with a nice resiny bitterness that closes it out on a dry note without much lingering bitterness.
One of the more drinkable IPA's out there. Bitterness is pretty standard and average for style I'd say, and the body is pretty delicious.

4.38/5 rDev +9.5%
Appearance: red/orange copper with some white head which dissipated quicker than slow, very attractive.
Smell: wonderful, sweet grapefruit and some floral, piney notes.
Feel & Taste: smooth, wholesome front, medium body, crisp, a lil bitter, a lil dry back, herbal. Hops linger after swallowing, tongue is thirsting for more.
Overall: Enjoying this more each and every time. IMHO, set the American IPA standard high.

3.5/5 rDev -12.5%
Reviewed from old session notes.
Pours out a standard hazy amber with a minute's worth of off-white head, medium levels of lacing left behind on the glass. Smells and tastes of an even mix of grapefruit / pine / caramel malt that sits right in the 'by-the-books" zone for IPAs. Nice medium body and carbonation. Honestly, I had a hard time seeing what the big fuss was over this one. It came across to me as a well-made but bog-standard IPA. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing in particular was special about it either.
