This is a damn good IPA.
I'm not really sure how the scoring works on this site or how people's taste-buds functions (or even if I'm drinking the same beer as everyone else)
This has a big hop-bite right up front. Well balanced, smooth, no booziness (for 6.8% abv) -- then the hob bite lingers long after the last mouthful.
This is the closest I've found to PEAK's IPA (my favorite) and usually retailing a little cheaper.
A great beer,

4.15/5 rDev +29.3%
Best by July 2014. Probably a couple of months old.
a: Clear dark amber with an inch tall off white head which receded to thick surface foam and patterned lacing.
s: Caramel malt.
t: Distinct grape juice flavor up front over a solid caramel malt base followed quickly by a moderate hop bite. Bitterness lingers at the sides of the tongue.
m: Light to moderate with plenty of carbonation tingle.
o: Different non-citrus fruit flavor (grapes), persistent caramel malt aroma and beautiful appearance highlight this nicely balanced IPA, which could also pass for a hoppy pale ale. Enjoyable to the last.
