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.

Got this growler at the brewery a few days ago so the brew is fresh. Poured into a tulip glass. If poured aggressively there is a two finger off white head. Not much head retention but very nice lacing. Color is clear amber. Looks like an ipa.
Smell is grapefruit rind. Maybe a little malt but good citrus ipa smell.
Taste is good. Starts with citrus hop, a little hoppy malt in the middle and grapefruit hop to finish. Tastes like an ipa.
Mouthfeel is good as well. Good carbonation and smooth finish.
Overall a good ipa. Not the best I've had but certainly drinkable. I really wanted to try the Wolf Hills double/imperial ipa but it wasn't available.

Had on tap in a pint glass.
Arrived a slightly hazy copper with a tiny head that I attribute to it being extra cold.
Smells very bready with a big shot of earthy and piny hops.
The taste starts out with a strong hop bitterness but not strong enough to overwhelm the malt. Some caramel and biscuit comes through along with some rye. Earth and pine from the hops is very up front and nicely balance.
Overall I am really impressed with this beer. All the flavors are nicely balanced but my one complaint would be the mouthfeel. It is very watery. If that could be improved I think this would be a top of the line beer.
