Your typical IPA. Caramel balances out its hoppiness. It's OK. That's all.

I love this IPA. It's nothing special, but it is so drinkable and hits all the notes that you expect from a traditional IPA.

Poured in an 8oz. stylish flute {Stone 16th Anniversary gift glass}. The deep copper, torched rusted iron colour fills the glass forming into a 1" finger thick foam.

The smell is excellent and offers complexity and depth. This is no wimpy IPA [or as my cousin pronounces it "eye- puh"]

The taste is super clean and refreshing washing and swirling down the throat at about 51 degrees.

The feel is a solid medium and it is displayed in the body and weight on my palate.

Overall, this is a great go-to high quality IPA. This is the quintessential right touch on every point Ale that punches out great character and consistency. I love that this IPA is grounded in the kind of quality that never falters and can be counted on for the afternoon bbq, the lip quencher with your honey in a hot shower, or the chaser buddy with a top-shelf silver blue agave! Perfect with spicy food indeed!

A: Light orange to pale yellow color, 1/2 inch white head, great lacing

S: Dank pine hops in the smell, not much else

T: Dank pine hops up front, sweet malts come in next to give some balance, needs more of a malty backbone to make it better

M: Medium, carbonated just right

O: A good IPA. Nothing that lights the world on fire but definetly a worthwhile offer.

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

Bitter as any good IPA, but tasty. A good beer to enjoy occasionally.

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.

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
