First had at The Trail Tavern, Frontier Trail, Cedar Point, Ohio, poured from 12-oz. bottle, label stamped “BOTTLED ON 052918,” into frosted white plastic beer cup. This is a classic American IPA, which (not unexpectedly) tilts a bit toward the hoppy side.

12 oz bottle

Pours mostly clear amber. Pillowy white head dissipates to a sudsy lacing.

Smells of biscuit and grassy malts with piney and earthy hops.

Mild honey malt over dry biscuit, cereal, and woody notes. Piney and woody bitter hop finish.

Medium body, tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Solid English style IPA, pretty pour and good aroma. Could do with a bit more malt balance to the hops, but otherwise no complaints. Worth trying.

This really is an exceptional IPA. There's not much I can say about the aroma and taste that others haven't already. I will say this - this beer reminds me very much of Stone IPA (the original). You can think of it as a Stone with better smell, taste and drinkability. If you enjoy IPA's, grab this one if you ever have an opportunity... You won't be disappointed
