This is a special IPA. Takes three swallows to really begin to enjoy. From there on, it is a great beer.

Light orange color. Sour citrus nose with a hint of pineapple. Taste is slightly front-loaded with alcohol, which quickly settles into an herbal-fruity hop and malt profile. Feels a little clingy; not as crisp as some other IPAs. Overall, a good, solid representative of the class.

Not the best IPA, but is still crisp and hoppy from start to finish.

Bought a six-pack at Table and Vine in West Springfield, MA. Served in a goblet. The drink had a large, frothy head with a slightly amber-copper appearance. Aromas had a sharp whiff of pine mixed with lemon citrus. The overall taste of the drink was a hoppy, but nothing too bitter. In fact, with the somewhat medium carbonation, the drink was smooth and refreshing. Overall, a good IPA.

A great standard IPA. This is something I could drink during the summer and enjoy a lot of.

One of the better IPAs out there. For its price point, hard to argue against ever getting it. Slightly bitter, more so than Sumpin Sumpin, but its pleasant. Its bronze and a little darker than some other IPAs, but its full bodied which I can appreciate.

One of my favorite IPAs around. I call it "engagement beer" after I got engaged a friends mother of my fiancé had us over for drinks and it was the first time I had it. Glad it all happened. This is the beer that started my love for IPAs

Really nice, hoppy beer w/ a ton of character. Maybe more of a special occasion beer than an everyday drinker, but I could get used to it...!

Well, very surprised and pleased with this IPA. Didn't expect it to be soo smooth. Delightful, yet unexpected. Have only tried their Imperial Stout. Decided to venture more into the unknown... pours very light off golden color with a more than typical white head. Nice lacing to boot. Smells of citrus, alil pine in there too and some fruits. Very smooth didnt not expect, was expecting more hops but it likey very much. After taste not bitter ar all. Defintley will pursue in the future. Cheers

Very good. Feels heavy, and is not suitable for "light enjoyment" (probably inevitable because of alcohol percentage), but still very soft feel overall and is delightful to drink. The taste of fruit present at the aftertaste... is just excellent. The taste kind of attacked me very aggressively and I was shocked. Very well recommended.

Solid session IPA for me anyway, very smooth and balanced. Goes down dangerously well. Nothing that blows you away in the hop sense but it's there.. Good for summer grillin..megh

Very well balanced with grapefruit and pine hops and a solid malt backbone.

The best IPA I've had so far (then again I've only had 3 kinds). Smells of lots of citrusy grapefruit, lemon and maybe even a bit of tangerine, but also subtle pine and malt along with it. Pretty smooth with the citrus and pine coming throughon the taste with a nice lingering bitterness. Can't wait to drink it again.

I've been wanting to try this beer for a while. It did not disappoint. Great hop bitterness but nicely balanced. Nice citrus.

Awesome body for a comparatively low-to-moderate ABV for an IPA. Lacing is equally nice, and finish is a mellow bitterness. The issue here is with the taste, which just isn't very notable.

Highly drinkable. Not too bitter. Piney up front and great citrus notes on the finish. I detected mango and orange. Would definitely buy again.
