I tried this in the beer sampler at the brewery, and later on, a few sips from my friends pint glass. I was a bit hesitant at first based on the smell. The smell was a bit muted, and I didn't get the big floral aromas that you get from some of the other bigger IPA's on the market. However the taste was good. A bit more mellow of an IPA, but it still holds its own. Worth a try.

Style more of an Imperial IPA. Amber/Copper color with slight chill haze. Brewery only open a lttle more than 3 months and this one was the best of the beers there. This one is a ood start. Lacking just a little floral hoppiness for the style, and this beer would also benefit from a little more hop bittering in the finish. Overall a good beer and IPA fans won't be disappointed.

One of their better ones, though not very drinkable. This is, yes, an IPA and they insist and market it as such. Golden yellow and very lacey. Very malted down, the bitterness did not come through huge, so rather off balance.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub.
