From BeerAdvocate Magazine #76 (May 2013):

Certainly enough hop bitterness for an IPA. Old-school flavors with all of the Cascade up on our palates. Balanced though we had hoped for a bit more hop flavor. A half step ahead of the average, would be a full one if it was cleaned up a bit more. Watch the dregs!

STYLE: American IPA
ABV: 6.5%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Bubbly, brassy, clear, towering head

SMELL: Orange zest, pithy, chalky yeast, toffee, bready

TASTE: Ample bitterness, caramel, moderate sized body, hay, bread crust, orange rind, green peppercorn, pineapple skin, brown apples, yeast, dry bitter finish (626 characters)

Pours an opaque amber with almost no visible carbonation. Virtually no bubbles, and consequently, no lace.

Nose is citrus and floral hops -- not bad.

Taste is simple -- I get citrus (orange, specifically). There isn't much complexity here at all -- more in line with a basic, starter pale ale (rather than an IPA). Not a lot going on here, but it is easy to drink. (366 characters)

A-Clear amber, some carbonation, one finger head.

S-Earthy, citrus, dirt. Lots of hops.

T-Very similar to the nose. With earthy, citrus, dirt notes all balanced together and it ends with good bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, some carbonation, easy drinking.

O-A great IPA from a local brewery. Was a little worried when I tried it but it turned out very pleasant. (364 characters)

A- Golden Amber with a small amount of head after pour that dissipates into a ring.

S- Smells fresh and crisp. Hoppy and kind of piney even. I get a nice floral smell when brought closer to the nose.

T- Smooth start, hoppiness is there. The floral aroma turns into a bigger taste. There is a little bit of a buttery flavor too.

M- Thin bodied, well carbonated. Easy swallow.

D- For an IPA it's good. I don't like the super hopped up ones, and this is probably on the lower end of average hoppy flavor. Easy drinker at the pub. (538 characters)
