Pours with a whit, heavy, and dense head. The color is deep amber almost caramel. The nose is very floral. Hops are in the air!!! The taste is a little bitter with a decent hop bite to it. Good beer.

Drinkable beer and one that i wouldn't turn down again in the future. Clear, amber color. Taste is very balanced for a 7% IPA. Expected more hops out of it considering all the hops caricatures on the label. I would say this is a good IPA for folks who don't particularly like IPAs. That may sound bad but, I promise, that's a good thing. Taste is more like a typical English ale.

An excellent beer with lots of pine and citrus. I love hoppy beers and thought this struck an excellent balance. Another well done beer by Hardywood.

Disappointed in this one. Expecting IPA, got a Pale Ale. If you are looking for a Pale Ale, this is decent. Definitely not an IPA
