12oz can poured into pint glass

A- pours a hazy amber orange color with a small creamy white head that retains nicely after the pour

S- citrus & piney hops with a toasted grainy malt backbone, a hint of grass

T- citrusy grapefruit hop up front eventually transitions into a sweet and bready underlying malt, crisp and grainy finish

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish

O- this drinks more like a pale ale. There are some citrusy hop notes, but they need to be a little more pronounced

Plenty of dry grapefruit. Usual for an IPA. Finish is clean, makes one want another sip. Some tang in the aftertaste, but not aggressive. Very American IPA. Could do well with some finishing hops of a high standard to bring the bite forward, or malt to make the abv stronger. I see the medicinal taste from other reviewers, but it's welcoming for the clean palate. Best with a spicy food, like a chorizo taco with fresh red cabbage and avocado. Good, middle of the road IPA. Good camping beer.

I am a regular of the Wolf Hills Brew pub, and I like to support local brewing. All this aside, Troopers Alley IPA is a great draft daily drinker. It has a great citrus nose, and a smooth IPA style grapefruit finish. It doesn't compare to thier Imperial IPA as far as teeth and claws go, but it is much better of a dinner beer.

This is basically all I drink when I go out. If its available.
