Not a ton of dimension. But a nice, slightly earthy ipa

22oz bomber: This one pours a hazy slightly orangish amber color. There was a small off white head that doesn’t linger long or leave much lacing. Good hop nose. An earthy pine as well as some grapefruit. A bit of biscuit also. The taste is pretty good. A fair amount of bitterness. Grapefruit and pine hop flavors, as well as a bit of biscuit. Also a bit of caramel malts and some sweetness peeking through. Not bad at all!

A: Pours a clear amber to copper in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy beige head that reduces to a large patch of wispy thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith, citrus/grapefruit, and herbal hops with just a hint of spicy hops and caramel malts..

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of caramel malts with a light amount of sweetness. That is quickly followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of hops - citrus/grapefruit pith, citrus/grapefruit, herbal, and spicy (in descending order of strength). Moderate amounts of bitterness that lingers for a moderate amount of time.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Overall this beer is pretty well balanced between the flavors of the malts and the hops - not overly sweet or bitter. Pretty easy to drink and enjoyable, alcohol is well hidden.
