Good IPA. Had it with crab cakes and corn on the cob. Pours a light orange, slightly hazy color with a good sized white head. Thick lacing, good head retention and some bubbles. Aroma and taste include good bitterness, citrus hops and dry biscuit malt. Good aroma and solid taste nicely balanced between citrus hops and biscuit malt. Mouthfeel is crisp, light and nicely bitter. A very good IPA.

Tried this about 8+ months ago and it was better than today. My fave store stocks this in big quantities, so the belief is this batch is different and QA needs to kick into gear.

Clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma has sweet citrus fruits and even a hint of vanilla. Taste is quite fruity but also has a medium hoppy bitterness. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Overall it's a well balanced and easy drinking fruity IPA.

Pretty bland concotion as far as the base beer goes, but the addition of the blood orange puree doesn't do anything to elevate it - tastes more like red grapefruit juice and it has a herbal bitterness that isn't appealing.
