3.78/5  rDev +6.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Clear, light pale yellow in color. Forms a smallish fluffy white head. Little retention. Light lacing.

S: Aroma is clean, crisp hops. Mostly grapefruit and citrus zest with lesser notes of ginger, pine, and orange. Some pale malts in the mix.

T: Taste is similar. Clean and crisp. Pale malts. Mild sweetness. Grapefruit and grapefruit pith are the dominant hop flavors, though there is a light bit of pine in there as well. Quick finish.

M: On the lighter side. Crisp. Mild bitterness. Good carbonation.

O: I had a growler filled at the same place I picked up this bottle. Unfortunately, I was too lazy to tick the growler because I would have never recognized this as the same beer. The growler was fresh and lively with a wonderful hop aroma whereas the bottle was much more subdued and lackluster. Now, the bottle isn't a bad beer - it'd make a good everyday IPA (depending on the price) - but it also isn't an overly exciting beer either. A well-made middle-of-the-road beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottled 02/11/14

Pours an effervescent honey/amber with 3 fingers of pearl colored head. Nice head retention & pretty good lacing

S: Grassy, bready, oranges

T: Grassyness, orange peel, grapefruit & a bit of pine up front, just a touch of aspirin too. Orange peel, a whisper of caramel & breadyness as this warms, along with slight aspirin bitterness. Crisp finish, dry with grapefruit & orange peel bitterness

MF: Light/medium bodied, lively carbonation, alright balance

Fairly drinkable, not a great IPA, but fairly serviceable. Would buy it again if A-list options weren't on hand...

3.18/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3

Poured into mason jar.

Nice copper color I like with IPAs.

Aroma: love the floral and citrus of the hops but also getting something else maybe plastic like an old milk jug, not very noticeable.

Taste: starts off great with floral and citrus hops but there is nothing to back them up. Flavor of hops fades into a lingering acidic bitterness that is probably a result of the 5.5 abv on this guy. Just not enough malt backbone to balance the buttering from the hops. 5.5 is very low for an IPA, more like an overly hopped pale ale.

Mouthfeel is thin, watery, but only poor in the finish. The beginning is fresh and effervescent.

Decent beer but could use a bump up in OG.

I would probably try something else next time.

3.31/5  rDev -7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

The coppery tone of this IPA was a bit murky with loads of carbonation teeming through. The head was a thick froth of marangue like foam.

The aroma is earthy, herbal, very spicy with a leafy natural tone. Not a lot of citrus but maybe a touch of lemon can be discerned.

The flavor is simply too herbal for me. I get a onion, chive, oregano and thyme out of the hops with some malt but very little. This herbal hop prominence is not my style.

This is a touch bitter and astringent but nothing detracting and it drinks like water.

I must admit that there was a lot of hop flavor but those hop flavors were not the style I like or what my palate accepts.

3.94/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Bottle states 5.5% abv.

Pours to a one inch frothy head that fall sto a 3/8 inch permanent head that erratically laces the glass. Color is a slightly hazy golden amber. Aroma delivers on the promise of grapefruit, tropical fruits and piney notes coming from the hops in their hops-forward brew. Flavor is a blast of luscious hop flavors and restrained bitterness with a very basic malt backdrop. Mouthfeel is light but a bit astringent. Overall this is a very good quaff and a good surprise.
