How do you know when you have balls? When you brew your own IPA and yet you still offer plenty of other great choices. While Pinthouse makes a great IPA they also have things like Sculpin available. 

Full bodied is a great way to describe this beer. It goes down fast despite the strong hoppy taste. But not too hoppy, I would put this one down as "crisp" and clean tasting. Probably one notch too high for getting your non-IPA friend hooked, but a great alternative after a strong ride on the trails.
