I really like this beer. It's cost at $6.99/six is great, and while it's hardly a stellar IPA, I think that is what makes it so appealing. It's a milder IPA but definitely has that hoppy character that I love, but it's also smooth and you could drink a couple of these in succession without feeling put-off.

It's nothing to write home about but it's definitely a great standard, regular beer that I will continue to buy stateside and sneak back up into Canada on a regular basis. Gotta love these Northwestern brews!

I really enjoyed this IPA. Some will criticize for lack of complexity, but this beer is subtle beauty. Smooth, crisp. Not much head or lacing to speak of, but the taste is balanced and full throughout. The bitterness hides nicely behind hints of orange and spice. Sweet, spicy aftertastes lingers that I actually enjoyed, which I usually don't with an IPA. 6% abv= not overpowering but a appropriately detectable. The definition of solid/refreshing.

In the end this is what really happened... Miller made the dicision to drop this label and make Lat 44 aka Latitude 44, which is basically the location of Eugene Oregon to better market the beer for Oregonians that like micro-brews but it failed and now it's gone. I think this sucks because Henry makes some good beer but they have no IPA and this would hev been a great addition to their label but now it's gone. The reason I mark this as on-tap because that is the only way they marketed the beer when it was called Lat 44.

Poured chilled from a bottle into a standard pint.

A=Deep orange-gold amber and a touch of cloudiness...bright white head.

S=Orange and lemon essences present.

T=More lemony than orange,with a modestly strong hop backbone.

M=Moderate body, very low carbonation.

O=I generally don't like IPA's, and my scores here are based more on the style...Of the IPAs I've had, this was a bit more enjoyable than most...but it may be a bit too tame for those that really like the style...still, like other MillerCoors' "craft" type beers, this is a decent gateway beer and could serve as a decent IPA for parties...a decent session IPA, too.

Pours a light copper color with a 1/2 inch white head. Carbonation is visible. Head recedes to a splotchy film across my glass and leaves stringy lacing. The smell blew me away, it is sweet, grassy and floral. I almost feel that it could be described as smelling like an Oregon forest. The taste starts with a slight sweetness then I get a tangy citrus. Body is a little on the thin side but it has nice carbonation. Overall, this would be a great beer for a summer day when you don't want a full bodied IPA, but don't want to sacrifice the hops. My expectations were not high for this beer, but it really surprised me. This is really not meant to compete with inversion IPA, or Laurelwood workhorse, but I think it fits a niche of hoppy lawnmower beer.

it's back in stores in eugene oregon and will be available as a year round selection!... as of april 2011. i first tried this beer during the summer of 2008 and loved it, as IPAs are my favorite during the summer. it's not as nearly as bad as a macro but not quite as good as more expensive micros, but that's what is great about it... coming in at under $6 per six pack and sales on 12 packs for $11, it's a really great intro to IPAs.

i probably be drinking this all summer after exercising or mowing the lawn during the weekends. and according to the press release (google it), it's supposed to be available on draft in may. this is my favorite henry's beer.

I'm burned out on hops, so I'm biased. Pours to a thin White head and copper color. Aroma is piney PNW hops and a bit of sweet caramel malt. Flavor picks up the same as the aroma. Not intensely bitter as is the standard for American craft IPAs but does have all the elements, the malty backbone, bitter, resiny bite and dry, tangy finish. Mouthfeel is light for style. not to IPA snob standards, but passes as an English IPA in my book and has that American hop twang. If there ever was a sessionable American IPA, this is it. Good call.

poured into my favorite rainier beer pint glass

appearance is a translucent pale copper, like an uncirculated penny if i could see through it. decent head with an attractive lacing which remained as i made my way down the glass.

smell is of florally hops and faint citrusy fruit

taste far surpassed expectations. complex, if slightly unbalanced, but lingers long enough to appreciate the array of flavors present. lighter than your average IPA but this is one delicious brew. and i can usually find this for $9.99 a 12 pack? i'm sold!

this beer is highly drinkable. i find it hard to have just one.

highly recommended to APA fans but IPA traditionalists may find this one to be a bit lacking

flowery aromatic smell is the best feature of this brew. i didnt get a chance to pour it, drank it straight from the bottle, so the appearance was markd by a 3. im really happy Henry's came out with this IPA, a new turn to an affordable beer. right on Henry, thanks again...

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass
Clear copper in color, with a big, off-white head of foam.
Aroma-Faint toasted malt and floral notes
Taste-"soft' herbal hops, subtle caramel and toasted malt. A nice "entry-level" IPA. Easy drinking "burger brew".
