Our India Pale Ale has a pronounced hop bitterness and wonderful hop aroma. The taste immediately gives away the high hop characteristics with malt aspects playing second fiddle to this fantastic example of the style.

If you like that bitterness that is for sure there, then fades fairly quickly, this is your beer. The beer is great, but what puts it over the top is the tech of the can. Love being able to remove almost the entire top. See it? Buy it.

Picked up a single at Beers and Cheers Too in Gaithersburg. Pours an awesome bright orange body with a big head that dies slowly and leaves amazing lace. Aggressive nose with alcohol and pine and herbal and medicinal notes on the side.

There is plenty of dark malt here, and the hops offer mostly pine and medicine, which makes the flavor fairly harsh until the finish, where it finally mellows. Not much for citrus or other notes either. The alcohol comes on like thatr of a much bigger beer. The texture is thick, but not enough so to coax the flavor back to enjoyable.

This isn't really bad, just not very interesting and not to my personal taste. Of the hundreds of American IPA's I have had, this is easily in the bottom quartile. Not in any hurry to try this again.

Clear amber color with off-white head. Aroma has vegetal, grassy, slightly dank hops and some malt in the background. Taste starts with slightly nutty malts and vegetal hops. Finish is earthy and bitter with some toasted malt flavor. Medium to light body with smooth mouthfeel. Overall it's a pretty good IPA leaning more towards the old school style.

(On tap, limited notes)

Copper color, nice head.

Onion, caramel malts, fresh pine on the nose.

Lots of caramel and onion to start, a very bitter and bready finish. Bitterness in spades.

Feel is dense and equally carbonated. Semi dry finish.

A solid effort but one is enough for me.
