Pretty much shocked I haven't rated this one yet...could have sworn I have. Not sure what there is to say that 3,600+ reviews haven't already said. Amazing orange rind and marmalade in this one, both in the nose and flavor. One of those beer that I will almost always buy if I see there is a fresh pack. Top to bottom a first rate IPA and should (and is) known as one of the rock solid standards for the style. Overall, great.

I’ve drank hundreds, maybe thousands, of these over the years as my “go to” IPA. In the 90’s there wasn’t much to compare it to. Now I know it deserves its place in the pantheon of American IPAs.

Probably one of the few beers that I cannot seem to drift away from. I always have a six pack lined up in my fridge, even though I am constantly trying out the latest and greatest offerings from the local michigan craft brews. The beer itself is very sweet on the front end and a bitter tongue punch to finish. In my opinion this beer tastes more closely to a double IPA just slightly less sweet. Also not that it matters but the color of the beer is a nice burnt orange/ deep amber color.

Had this a few years ago - may have been outdated but didn't care for it. Should have tried fresh since then.
Awesome shelf standard IPA!

Poured from a bottle: A hazy deep golden color with a frothy creamy head, persistent, and quite lacy; Pleasant aroma, slight smell of hops; Full bodied flavor, hoppy on the first taste, but without a lingering aftertaste; Mouthfeel is smooth but tangy. This is a good mellow IPA with moderate bitterness. I've had it before on occasion and I'm sure I'll have it again.

Can from Whole Foods. Medium amber/golden with nice fluffy head. Looks great. Aroma is malty, bready, a hint of hops. Taste brings the hops forward, but this is a not big hoppy IPA, so they support the malt bill, working with it. very well rounded, smooth, nice textures. Worthy of its reputation. Been seeking this for a while.

Well I bought this because it said Ale on the label. Imaging my surprise when it turned out to be an APA. My friend didn't care for this too much, he is a double stout type. That's OK, I drank them all myself. Must say this is really good and when I again come up with $10 for a 6 pack, I will certainly revisit.
