I have always enjoyed this specific beer and it is one of my all time favorite IPA’s. It has a great taste that isint Overwelming with hops or fruit, but a fantastic combination of both of them. There are many other IPA’s that are better in other areas but this is a great mixture of everything that makes a great IPA beer.

Poured out like a miller-lite. Just a bit darker than a Coors-Lite. Could have read and entire book through it it was so watery and thin. Good head at least which had me thinking this could end up an ok experience. Had just a hint of a citrusy hoppy smell, actually smelled like it might end up ok.

Tasted...well...it tasted like someone took a Coors-Lite and mixed in a little bit of an actual West-Coast IPA but only a little. Just a touch of hoppiness on the end, couldn't taste any of the citrusy smell.

Really a complete waste of time unless you're looking for a water replacement for post-work out hydration.

On tap in a pint glass.

L---Clear, golden color. Thick head that faded quickly and left just a little lacing.

S---Fruity, floral aroma. Hops & lemony citrus are there as well.

T---Fruity. Pineapple & lemon. Hops are in the foreground, but not overwhelming.

F---Wet & quenching. Definitely one for a warm summer day,

O---Very nice work by a fine brewery. Will get another for sure.

This was an early favorite of mine in my craft beer discovery years. It’s held up over the years (decades) to be a decent drinking IPA. I really like the appearance: clear golden copper with a big rocky head. Smell is a solid combination of ripe pears, fresh cut grass and grapefruit. Malt is biscuity but overpowered by dank, grassy, grapefruit hop flavor and assertive bitterness. Overall, this is a distinctive, slightly above average IPA.
