IPL is easily in my top ten favorite beer styles of all-time, so it's fun to watch a burgeoning style develop.  Hell, even Jim Koch, famous hater of IPAs, tried to get in on the action.

Although there's a long list of hops on the bottle, this seems to have only a one-note character to it.  But it does have mildly sweet -- not too dry -- base and I get a touch of vanilla at the finish which sounds odd, but is pleasant.

This is 'pretty good', I'd say, but hardly a heavyweight champion.  It should be purchased again though, since I'm guessing it tastes ridiculous in its fresh state; but Fathom is still better, and still cheaper.  +1 for a sweet name though.
