3.78/5 rDev -0.3%
Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with an impressive head that leaves plenty of lacing
Smell: The hops smell dank and herbal with caramel tones underneath
Taste: Caramel tones, up front, with the dank and herbal hops building through the mid-palate; the sweetness builds and lingers but the herbal tea character really dominates the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; almost tannic like a red wine in the way it feels on the tongue
Overall: The hops in this one are Amarillo and Super Alpha and then dry-hopped with Centennial and Chinook; I have never been a big fan of Amarillo hops and that may be why this one is my least favorite from the series so far (consumed slightly out of order and the first one I have had from the bottle rather than at the brewpub)

3.88/5 rDev +2.4%
A: Pours a clear brassy copper in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some amber + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy light beige head that reduces to a medium sized patch of thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith and floral + herbal hops over lighter aromas of caramel + biscuit malts.
T: Upfront there is a light to moderate amount of caramel and biscuit malts with light amounts of sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of citrus/grapefruit pith and some lighter flavors of pine + herbal hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which lingers slightly.
M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.
O: Lots of hop flavors and aromas in this brew though it is probably my least favorite of the IPAs of the month so far. A little too much lingering bitterness in this one. Alcohol is well hidden.

Pours into an imperial nonic a dull brass color with a half finger quick to fade white head atop.Grapefruit rind and herbal hop notes in the nose along with some caramel/biscuit sweetness.Sharp Amarillo hops hit upfront on the palate giving a slightly bitterness,some citric notes come in the second wave with some caramel and mild sugary sweetness in the finish.A well rounded hop palate to this beer,solid.
