This was a nice amber beer with a one finger head that left a fair amount of lacing.

The aroma was of citrusy hops, mainly grapefruit. No real pine or resinous scents to speak of. Seemed the right level, if a little restricted and one-sided.

The taste was bitter, smooth, and not overpowering, with a mix of floral and grapefruit hops. It was not as bitter as I would have expected... a little too mild considering its name and reputation, IMHO.

Mouthfeel was about what expected from the hop balance, and it was pretty drinkable... I would have rated it higher, had it been a little less mild and a little more bitter. I like a bit more of that from an IPA.

This is a good IPA, but nothing too particularly special. Pours to a hazy dark amber color with a nice fluffy off-white head that sticks around for a while. Doesn't lace too well.

The smell is of bold spicy, herbal hops. Only a gentle caramel malt detected below. The taste is very similar but more intense. The bitterness is definitely there.

I would like to try this again when I am 100% sure of its freshness. It was good nonetheless, but seems like it might have lost its edge.

Great amber color and a full one inch head with staying power that lasted most of the glass. Spicy hops with small hints of citrus in the aroma. The taste was excellent, I haven't had many IPA's but if this represents the style, wow. Bitter but perfect as it goes down, slightly malty with the hops coming on strong about 90% of the way through the drink. Very drinkable, I will have this again and hopefully soon!
