This is one of my favorite IPAs. Very hoppy, very strong, not too bitter. Just right for IPA lovers. If you dont like IPAs I dont recommend it. This is the real deal.

Sweet malt start with a nice hop finish. Nicely balanced. A good IPA

A great balance of hop bitterness, hop aroma and flavor. Big abv. Big hop presence.

Bitter and smooth with very little lingering aftertaste. Good choice!

A perfectly balanced American pale ale. One of those beers that leave you wanting for more at the end. It is hoppy but not overly hoppy. This beer truly cannot be appreciated by someone who is not seasoned in IPAs or APAs.

They say it is hoppy and it is. Good like dogfish 90.

This is defiantly hoppy. Nice balance in the flavor with the high alcohol content. Dry finish
