Wow! An IPA I liked!

Pours a honey color with a medium head and lace that hangs around. Smells of hops, bitters and citrus peel. But the taste! Bitter and hoppy without the face puckering sourness that often turns me off to IPAs. There are distinct notes of floral and berry, but overall this is a strongly hopped ale and a very finely made one at that. I will certainly be buying this one again and I'd recommend it for those who are unsure of trying IPAs - I'm still not a fan of them, but did like this beer.

Pours a nice clear golden hue with a small off white head with nice lacing. Earthy piney hops, some spicy grapefruit hit the senses followed by some nice malt and yeast. Taste of earthy piney hops, some nice citrusy grapefruit notes and some nice malt and yeast. Palate is a nice medium to full body, and good carbonation. Finishes with an earthy piney hoppiness, some spicy grapefruit tones balanced by some nice biscuit caramel malt, some yeast and a bit of a nutty flavor. Overall a nicely balanced and drinkable IPA.

Poured a light clear golden color with a small white head. Nice carbonation throughout. Floral hops in the aroma, and really not much else. Nice hoppy taste thats not overpowering but leaves a nice zing on the tongue, finishing dry. Like other harpoon beers I've had this beer has a hint pumpkin pie in the taste that's good & unique, and really noticeable in the winter warmer. This a good IPA. Nothing too special but good overall.
