Pours a perfect summer sunset and smells of citrus wonder. The taste has just enough hop forwardness to please. Silky mouth finish with perfect carbonation. Overall this one is the benchmark for all IPAs to be measured by. Buy plenty and share with ll of your friends.

IPAs aren't my favorite, but this one is so good I can still rate it highly.

I have had lots and lots of different IPA but this one stands out. Has a large malt backbone, with piney citrus notes that linger. Pretty sticky and resiny. Delectable, the quaff is about as good as it gets...I was trying to find a great IPA that wasn't juicy style. As that is what has dominated my choices for the last few months. IPA is all I drink but who cares? I just mention it because i'm pretty particular about what I look in a IPA as I feel the style has a lot of crap on the market. However, this one is great. My mother who hates most IPA can actually drink this one and that says a lot to me. Other than that, love the hops in this, love the beer in general. Very much look forward to having this on tap.

Had this at an oyster roast party and it is a top notch beer in my book. Cool night outside by the fire and this beer hit the spot.

Pours a dark amber orange with a fluffy, 1-finger head that has leaves some spotty lacing. Smell is packed full of citrus and pine with a hint of malt sweetness and spice. Taste is citrusy with grapefruit and lemon with a pronounced hoppiness from the Centennial hops. A slight spice characteristic is noted up front while the toasty/cookie malt complements the overall flavor.

12 oz can poured into a pint glass.
Golden-amber in appearance, clear, soft off-white lasting head.
Floral, wood smell. Not overpowering. Very inviting.
Citrus, floral, wood, malt, spice and pine resin for flavor. Slight bitter finish.
Medium body, soft, good mouthfeel, balanced with a little bitter edge.
Overall, a complex tasting, soft, balanced IPA that I also find to be - with the floral, citrus, and wood notes with a significant malt body - to be exceptionally tasty.
