    At first I wondered if I got a bad bottle, because this beer wasn't living up to the hype for me. The malty flavor grew on me, but I still think it is way over priced at $12 per six pack. I'd drink it again ... if someone else is buying!

    This is a smooth, fresh summer beer that leaves a hopy little bite at the end. Not my favorite brew, but sure should be rated a GOOD beer.

    This has easily made it on to my list of favorite beers. The only problem I can find is the color, which is a cloudy gold and kind of unattractive; but, who really cares if it tastes great. This beer tastes awesome! It is light, crisp and floral with a hint of spice that adds to a dusty and quickly disappearing aftertaste. The nose is full of ripeness, cherry. Great beer!

    This is one heavy IPA! The taste is superior. The appearance is rich and clean. It leaves a solid taste in your mouth which is ripe with alcohol, but not overpowering. I had a draft and the aroma is almost nonexistent. Great beer.

    The beer has an extremely floral nose. It is simply wonderful when it is ice cold; I would've rated it higher if not for the fact that as it gets warmer it grows slightly pungent.

    This beer was great ... before everyone found out about Yuengling and the price went up. For its current price it's a good beer that used to be a great find! I still drink it often.
