Had this on a recent trip to the brewpub and found it to be a very pleasant surprise.

Pours a hazy orange with a nice creamy head. Very stong hop/citrus aroma. This carries directly through to the taste, which has a nice crisp undercurrent. A very pleasant, aggresively hopped beer that I found to be substantially better than their Imperial IPA (feels far less heavy than the double and with a much more subdued malt backing).

Like most west-coast style IPA's, this is very very drinkable (for me anyway). Check this seasonal out before its out of the brewpub (if its not already).

A great new offering at the brewpub.Poured a slight hazed burnt orange color with a nice tight half finger head that held for quite awhile.Deep pine resin and citric notes in the nose that packed a good punch.Pretty well balanced on the palate,a big dose of resiny hop really hit home,a toasty lightly sweet malt backbone really held up well.Its resiny and oily,a pretty hop assertive IPA.

Served from tap into a standard pint. Pours a nice orange-red color with a one-finger white head that lingers. Maintains excellent lacing throughout. The aroma is comprised of only mild hops. The flavor however has massive hops with a slight malt note. It was medium on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this is a pretty nice IPA. It could however be awesome if it defined the hops or malt notes more. Definitely my favorite brew from Natty Greene's thus far.

The pint arrived and the beer appeared a nice orange color with light, but dense white 2-finger head that took its time dissipating. Some nice lacing was also present, thanks to the head.

The beer had a lighter aroma to it than expected, but it appeared to be mainly citrus hops.

The taste of the beer was good, seemed to be citrus and pine hops, but the hops is all that you really got out of it.

The beer had a medium feel to it, good carbonation, a nice bitter aftertaste and it was very easy to drink. Overall, a solid IPA.

Pours a hazy darker burnt orange color, with a small bar pour off white head. Even though it had small head lacing was impressive sheets all the way down the pint, very nice.

Aroma is west coast all the way baby, loads of pine resin everywhere with some citrus grapefruit trying to pop out also.

Taste is bam hops big huge pine forest full of sticky resin is in the for front all the way. Some grapefruit rind like bitterness kind of mingles in the finish but pine dominates. Of course there is a caramel malt base holding the hops but this is one hop heads IPA.

Mouthfeel is lively carbonation that goes of so well with the hops seems to bring them out and have them dance on your tongue. Say medium body don't notice the malt to much but tis there supporting the hops.

Drinkability is good a nice aggressive IPA hop heads rejoice.

The brew is a hazy amber color with a decent white cap that slides down to a full cover with very nice sheets of lace. The aroma gives me some citrus hops and maybe a touch of pine bread. My first taste brings on a very solid pissy citrus/pine hop with some slightly syrupy flowery sweetness. This is medium bodied plus with mild carbonation. Almost suggests a double ipa in consistency but not much of an alcohol sense. It's a very solid hop brew and definitely deserves a try. Fairly drinkable but not it's most prominent quality.

Had this on tap at the brewpub last night. Excited to see some new beers on the list, and even more excited when one was an IPA! Came out a very cloudy dark orange with a creamy off-white head on top. Great retention; left lots of pretty sip rings on the glass. Scents of overpowering pine resin, some citrus zest, and a light sour note.

Great full-bodied IPA here. Creamy going down, but plenty of carbonation backing. Big bitter flavors right off the bat. This is high hopped, and highly bitter. Lots of lip-smacking tart citrus, with mild bread in the middle and a sharp bitter finish. Little bit of lingering bitterness on the palate as well. Dang. Great beer Natty's. I think this may be my favorite to date. And like the reviewer commented before me, this is SO much better than their "Imperial" IPA.

Had this as a growler fill at the local Lowe's. I'd like to see this added to their regular lineup. The only other NG IPA that I really liked was the Elm Street. Nice dark amber pour with a nice head and good lacing. Some maltiness and good bitterness.
