3.13/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

I am in perfect agreement with the other reviewers who basically are saying that this beer is set up nice, but it never blows you away. The description implies a lot when they say its "brewed with a select blend of hops from top German, English, and American growing regions all located close to the 48th latitude within the “hop belt” of the Northern Hemisphere." great marketing, but I prefer a more complex hop profile and fruitiness in the flavor. This is a little bland to me. I live in a small town where the bars don't have anything great on tap - if this was there I would order it in a second compared to your standard BMC, Guiness, Stella, etc. But where there are just so many great IPAs out there to buy- I just had a Ithaca 'Flower Power' tonight for example, this comes out to be about average. The bar is way up there. Very good for a mass production type of brewery I must say though.

4.11/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a DFH IPA glass. The culmination of the entire deconstruction series.

A: Golden clear, with a fine white head and gentle effervescence.

S: Herbal and citrusy. Quite pleasant and aromatic. Herbaceaousness takes the day.

T: Maybe it's the priming of the previous five (half) beers, but this is exceptionally complex and definitely delicious. Almost perfectly balanced between hoppy and fruity; sweet and bitter. Fruit takes the day on the endtaste. Aftertaste is clean and pleasant.

M: Rich and pleasant.

O: Great IPA. Highly recommended. Would drink again.
