Mouthful of citrus and flowers...in a good way. Solid IPA. I've outgrown it, but if the choices are limited at the bar/liquor store, you know exactly what you're getting.

Classic IPA. I have enjoyed this beer many times but finally getting around to review. Probably my first intro to IPA and started me down this path where I am writing beer reviews. Tonight I had a pint of this fine beer on tap at Ulysses restaurant in Wilmington Delaware. Very enjoyable with dinner. Gold color and beautiful smell and wonderful taste. A little fruit but nice malt flavor. When in doubt this is an easy choice for me. Love it.

I think this is a good entry level IPA. Pours between an amber and gold with a white/light yellow head. Aroma is fairly weak in terms of hop presence - some citrus and floral aromas struggle to get through some biscuity malts. Taste is a bit more pronounced - citrus and flowers. Feel is medium; medium carbonation. Overall, definitely not as good as the first time I've had it. Once you have time to explore you'll find that this is a very good IPA, just not great. Hop Stoopid is a world apart from this.

Pours a very clear orange color with about two fingers of white head. Smells sweet, primarily of malts with some floral notes. Tastes of caramel, biscuit, and some pine. A little bitterness, particularly towards the end. Medium-light body. Aftertaste fades quickly away. Overall, it's nice, easy drinking. Nothing to seek out but a nice drinking IPA.
