I haven't had many IPA's, but enjoyed this one. Nice taste without a lot of bitterness...I think I'll have a few more!

I think this is old because it tastes like a malt bomb

12 ounce bottle, no dating on the bottle that I could find. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about an inch off-white head that stayed around for a long time. There's also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells mostly like pine and citrusy (orange peel, grapefruit) hops, along with some bready malt. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some wheatiness noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's coating and a bit creamy with a good amount of carbonation. I liked it OK, but I didn't think it was one of the better IPA's I've had. Since this bottle was given to me from one of my friends, I really have no idea how old it is. I'd like to try this again in the future.

Surprised about the low score on BA, no this isn't a must drink IPA, but it's pretty solid and tasty for a 6.8% brew. So many other IPA's fall short in this alcohol range but this one does not.

Pours a bright and clear golden hue. looks more like a golden lager than an IPA. Big carbonation bubbles. Nice head, dissipates and leaves a thick lace.
Nose is impressive--toasted hops and a piney and wheated-citrus bouquet is almost overwhelming. He'Brew is not effing around.
Mouthfeel is superb--light, but with a slight viscosity--a weighted and silky oil quality that gives way to a crisp finish.
Taste...man...I don't want to say I am disappointed, but after all I was led to believe through it's other qualities...I am a little let down. Starts off really good--hop explosion. But then it just goes away--after the initial punch, the finish is nonexistent -- really flat.
Good beer--definitely puts the brewery on my radar. He'Brew is more than schtick. But the lack of balance hurts this offering a good deal.

A good, not mind blowing IPA. Would be a decent gateway brew for those wishing to dip their toes in the IPA pool for the first time.

This Beer is excellent. It proves that you do NOT have to have Big ABV to have and Excellent IPA.
The Smell .. sublime.. Fruity/Citrus overtones, crisp and bittersweet ( more Sweet than Bitter)... The colour is gold and burnt orange, the head is full and lacing is muted but not understated.
Shmaltz.. You've a winner with this beer.. Awesome... Found this Gem at Whole Foods....

Semi-cloudy gold color. Head is nice and frothy and quickly dissappates to a film with decent, clingy lacing. Aroma is full of citrus, with orange and grapefruit being the leaders. Taste is beautifully hopped, piney, with lots of grapefruit(slightly bitter) and some orange and pine. Maybe a touch of bready malt in the background. Good carbonation and full flavored. Nice balance, should bode well for the hop lover. IBU's are perfect at 65 !!

Still my favorite ipa. Our costco sells it and I buy it by the case. Perfect balance between malt and citrusy hop. It's a mouthful. Awesome!!!

Amber hued with vibrant carbonation bubbles. Excellent clarity. A quarter inch of off white head is present. Aroma is predominantly citrus hops,but I also detect light malt. The flavor is again citrus hop forward on the front of the palate. The light malt quickly balances the taste. The mouth is heavily carbonated and a bit chalky.

Pours a golden orange with some pretty lacing.

The nose is huge with floral, pine and tropical fruit notes.

Big caramel and cracker malt presence on this one. Hops kind of play second fiddle, but they are very much there. Floral and pine and some citrus/tropical fruits.

Feel is very smooth and oily. Lo lo carbonation.
Overall it's a good American IPA. I'm not exactly gonna seek it out but would enjoy drinking it again.

No bottle date, though I believe it's relatively fresh.

A - Clear gold, 1 finger white head, fades and leaves little lacing.
S - Citrus, floral hops, very light hope profile. Light caramel from the malt.
T - More malty than the nose led me to believe. Cut off by hop bitterness. The flavors work well together, but they both seem very light.
M - Light body, medium/high carb.
O - A good American IPA, but not something I would rush out to revisit. Definitely give it a try. I Love the marketing for this one too.

a very good ipa, relying on tropical southern hemisphere hops to make this distinct, and it works. its not the juiciest and brightest illustration of some of these varietals, but its really good for what it is, and honestly these guys have been getting better and better with their beer lately, especially the hoppy stuff. looks like an american ipa, slightly rust tinted golden beer heady and patiently carbonated. aroma of oranges and melon from the hops, a touch of pink bubblegum, and basically no yeast profile at all. the beer isnt real bitter, resinous and sweet like some of the west coast style ipas instead, which i think flatters the already fruity hop complexion in this one. i could use just a touch more carbonation, it settles after it comes out of the tap pretty fast, and is just a little slow for me. i like the medium body though and the finish is long lasting and delicious, making my mouth water for more. very solid ipa here, cool use of distinctive hop varietals for sure.
