American IPA, 7%
“It's a beer that's well worth trying, but because of the graphics [on the can's design previously] I think people overlooked it -- it had a psychedelic-looking can. [The beer has] very tropical fruit and citrus notes. It's a high IBU IPA definitely worth trying.”
-- Eric Dornan, Underdog's Brewhouse
American IPA; 6. 5%
"It's a versatile beer, as it's not aggressively hopped to having a high IBU. It's mid-range, so if I want a bit of hop character, I've got it, and if I want it sessionable, I've got it. It's the same beer."
-- Rod Daigle, Brimstone Brewing Company
Imperial IPA; 8%
"It's a well balanced, delightful drink. It's got a nice balance between the hop and malt flavors, and the bitterness is appropriately aggressive without being harsh."
-- Paul Dickey, Double Trouble Brewing Co.
