I have drunk a lot of beer world wide. This one is to me unique. The taste is nice and bitter. It blows me away.

Very solid IPA. It's got plenty of bitterness and a semi-dry finish but very balanced. The hops finish for quite a while on my palate which is nice. I get a bit of bitter lemongrass and grains. It's a beautiful color, nice golden with some haze. I get lots of malt on this, it's sort of heavy and it is filling. Great for colder weather. The feel makes you want another sip though. I think it could possibly pass for a Pale Ale but who really cares? It's good,worth drinking and I really like it.

Appearance | Pours with a hazy carmel colored top and yellow bottom slight foam; Smell | Sweet, almost toffee malts, citrusy hops, and slight fruity yeast; Taste/Feel/Overall | It is an India Pale Ale which has a better than normal balance of hops, which allows me to drink more than 1 pint and not feel overly bit by bitterness. The aftertaste has more of the bitterness than in the drinking of the beer. It is in the mid price range of IPAs at my bottle shop, which makes me feel like I am getting a great beer at a good price.

I had this on draft at a local taphouse and loved it even though it was served a little warmer than I prefer.

Really mellow IPA. Clean taste not quite as good as as PA Phantasmo... but a very close challenger. A more subtle type of IPA IMO, but nice nonetheless.

This is by far my favorite everyday beer that I wish I could have in my fridge all the time. Unfortunately, I can't get it anymore because of the crazy distribution laws in Illinois.

It pours a hazy orange with beautiful floral aromatics shooting out of the bottle. It has nice frothy white head that sticks to the glass. The nose is all hops, very floral and colorful. the taste is like heaven. perfect hop blend that jolt the taste buds. and a great bitter finish that isn't overwhelming.

Could be the best interpretation of an American IPA.

A: Almost a carmel/amber color, but a little lighter.

S: Citrusy. Hoppy.

T: Very smooth. Perhaps a little too much so. The hop presence is great, but could be a little more potent.

M: Smooth. Easy.

D: If it weren't for the high abv, could easily be a session beer. Quite easy and enjoyable to drink.

A: Looks good to me, dark golden brown.

S: Smells sweet to me, strong aroma.

T: nice kick to it, but not too overpowering.

M: Creaminess to it... i think.

O: Wish i had more of it, but ever since i moved to NY, i can't find it. i really do miss it.

Other Thoughts: my favorite beer as of posting this review. i haven't found anything that has beat it yet. i'm also a amateur when it comes to reviewing beer, but i can tell the difference between a good and bad beer to a certain extent.
