Medium gold with a two finger head. A bit of pine and citrus peel in the nose.

Malt is slightly sweet with a subtle buttered toast note. Medium-boded. Carbonation is nice. Finish is assertive and a bit astringent. Dry. A bit rough around the edges and has an element that is a bit "unclean" to my palate. It's decent but not necessarily a "go to" IPA for me. The market is saturated with IPAs -- and many good ones at that -- it might be hard to convince me to buy another six pack of this. But if offered or dealing with a limited selection, I could definitely deal with this for an evening.

Probably not bad with some crackers, mustard and sharp cheddar cheese. (666 characters)

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #91 (Aug 2014):

Orangey, Bitter, Warming, Herbal

What we have here is an IPA that is and even played as the malt foundation is sturdy enough to put up with the varietal hopping of Simcoe, Cascade, and Summit. While you might be familiar with the first two hops the latter is a descendant of an old school variety called Nugget. Smells and tastes like and firm hopped IPA, flavors jump from citrus to tea to blonde tobacco. Worthy of a try for sure.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a strong hoppy aroma with a great citrus addition
Appearance- This is a murky golden color beer with a small white head.
Taste- Great hop flavor with a well balanced citrus follow through.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- A really good beer, this is the first beer I have had from Champion Brewing and I look forward to trying their other brands. (435 characters)
