Im a simple man with simple pleasures, and this beer is simply remarkable. I usually drink lite american lagers, and this beer had me buzzing after one bottle.

Pours golden clear with a very wide white foam head, excellent retention. Aroma is fruity and sweet, with a hint of pine. Taste is refreshing, balanced, bitter lots of hops and malts, excellent body that remains in the palate, I really liked this IIPA. Cheers

A bomber on sale for two dollars and change.

Pours a nice clear copper.

Aroma is big, pleasing grapefruit with touches of spice and malt. The smell hits you right from the bottle. Dominated by Simcoe? Very distinct. Terrific.

Taste is citrus and grapefruit, malt sweetness toned way down by the hops and ABV. Another IPA afterward tasted like malt syrup in comparison.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly light and crisp for something this big. Maybe better for a late spring beer, but still nice.

Great, distinctive IIPA. Would easily put it on tap at home. I normally don't buy Pyramid beers; that will now change!
