Pours a golden color. Hoppy aroma, citrusy, and crisp. The flavor is a clean, hoppy combination of grassy and citrus rind notes. It tastes just as fresh as it does refreshing. Carbonation is nice. Spot on, this is one of the best IPA's you can get regularly in Ohio. My go-to IPA.

This beer pours a hazy light yellow with a huge, frothy, bright white head. There is fantastic retention and huge hanging sheets of lacing. Smell is subtle floral, grassiness and citrus. Taste is the same with a good deal of bitterness balanced by a sweet maltiness. Feel is very light, but drinkable. Overall a very solid beer.

Poured from a can into a Goose Island tulip. The beer is simply beautiful in the glass. It's crystal clear, deep gold in color, and sports a majestic frothy white head that retains itself very well and leaves behind some nice lacing. Nice dank hop aromas abound on the nose. Grapefruit, lemon, pine trees, and a hint of orange rind rise from the glass.

The beer has a medium body and a nicely balanced flavor. It is a tad sweet up front in a toast and marmalade kind of way. There are enough hops to remind you it's an IPA, but not nearly enough to make the beer rancidly bitter. The hop flavor is more of a floral, resiny, piney bitterness and less of a citrusy bitterness. As I prefer citrus, this is a pity. Still, the balance is so well dialed-in that I find myself thoroughly enjoying the flavor. It doesn't bombard you. It just sort of glides across the palate and leaves a nice lingering dank hoppy flavor on the finish (with your palate still more or less intact).

Overall, an extremely well-crafted IPA, though I wish it had more of a citrus character. It's important to note that this is not some hop-bomb-science-experiment or ridiculous ``extreme beer'' concoction. This is an exceptionally well-balanced American IPA; the kind that will still be popular when extreme beers have run their course. It's not intended for macho hopheads who dismiss anything that doesn't rip the taste buds off their tongue.
