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.

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.
