Great hoppy beer with a nice fruity finish. Very uplifting in the bottom. Not malty or dark like hoplanta or dog fish head.

L: 1inch of white pillow-like layer of head, and a body color of hazy orange, and this beer left a beautiful spider web of lacing around my glass. Smell: Wonderful citrus, grassy and hoppy aroma. Taste: A great complexity of a earthy hoppy flavor up-front, with a very clean finish at the end. M. Feel: Very carbonated, which helped pronounced the flavors even more; This beer, lets you know that it's a beer. Great American IPA, right now it's my favorite

My favorite IPA. The smell is phenomenal; very floral. The best smelling brew I've had the pleasure to sniff. The taste is very similar to the scent. Perfect amount of bitterness. Superbly balanced. Simply good stuff.

Smells of intense lemons, nice citrus and some deep resinous flavors. Smells awesome. The very juicy citrus comes in following with a hint of some lemons and ending with the herbal floral resinous bitterness. Its not too bitter though the flowing citrus flavors from the hops washes away the bitterness which is pretty awesome.. The malt mixes in with the deep resinous taste real well with a dark bready flavor.

I wish this beer came around in New Jersey because it'd be a regular for sure. The citrus and lemon quality to this beer is unreal. Its almost as juicy as juice and thats all from the hops. Very impressive beer. This beer is a perfect IPA in my opinion.

I've been through two six packs of this yummy IPA so far. It's heavenly. Super hoppy. I love it.
