The look is an acceptable haziness, smell is of general IPA, but the taste is what grabs you. Very balanced display of bitterness and bright sour grapefruit. Excellent.

Bam! This beer went off like a bomb on the taste buds. Golden colored with some good lacing on a side of the glass. Smell is a complex tropical/dank funk. Lots of grapefruit, and it tastes like you bit on a really sour one. Sour grapefruit/orange with an after taste of floral pine. Pretty dry beer. Lots of hops packed in, huge IBU to alcohol ratio. Reminds me of some West Coast DIPA's. The hops majorly overwhelm the very pale malt character which is mostly on the aftertaste. Great, flavorful beer. Haven't said "woah" after my first sip of an IPA like that in a while.

12 oz can pours a lightly hazed gold color with an ample cap of white head. Nice retention and sheets of lace.

Nose is tropical juicyness galore with a white bread malt. Papaya, mango and starfruit. A really great hop aroma on this one.

Taste is a very nice mix of hop flavor melding into a grainy malt and finishing plenty bitter. A very smooth IPA, one of the best IPAs I have had from the midwest in quite some time. I'll be putting this one on repeat purchase status for sure.

This was a pleasant surprise! Poured from a can into a pint glass. Slightly cloudy orange-yellow color with a good head and nice lacing. The smell was of grapefruit and flowery. The taste was fresh, hoppy and strongly citrusy. Nice grapefruit and orange flavor. A first class IPA.

Pours a cloudy honey amber color with a 1/2 finger width foamy head. Retention is decent. Lacing is good. Citrus and piney aroma. Slightly earthy. More malty taste. Slight citrus. Nice piney hop. Mild dank taste at the end. Medium bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation. Not a bad IPA.

Nice golden color and good carbonation. Not much head and hoppy aroma. Not overly hoppy tasting as it dissipates quickly and hangs on the tongue. Easy drinking beer and a little better than some others I have tried recently. Think I'll have another. Cheers.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A hazy honey golden color with a frothy 1 finger head with lace that sticks around for awhile.

Aromas of fresh pine, grass, slight herbal aromas, and faint garlic and onion due to a little past its date on this one.

The flavors come out very fresh, with pine and herbal notes fighting for center stage. The herbal notes ultimately win out. A finish of pine and onion.

Feel is crisp and clean, with slight resinous quality.

Overall, this is a pretty solid IPA that I'd recommend to anyone. Coop definitely gets their IPA's right.
