Solid session IPA for me anyway, very smooth and balanced. Goes down dangerously well. Nothing that blows you away in the hop sense but it's there.. Good for summer grillin..megh

Very well balanced with grapefruit and pine hops and a solid malt backbone.

The best IPA I've had so far (then again I've only had 3 kinds). Smells of lots of citrusy grapefruit, lemon and maybe even a bit of tangerine, but also subtle pine and malt along with it. Pretty smooth with the citrus and pine coming throughon the taste with a nice lingering bitterness. Can't wait to drink it again.

I've been wanting to try this beer for a while. It did not disappoint. Great hop bitterness but nicely balanced. Nice citrus.

Awesome body for a comparatively low-to-moderate ABV for an IPA. Lacing is equally nice, and finish is a mellow bitterness. The issue here is with the taste, which just isn't very notable.

Highly drinkable. Not too bitter. Piney up front and great citrus notes on the finish. I detected mango and orange. Would definitely buy again.
