look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

bottled served in a weizen glass, got this as an extra. straw amber with one finger eggshell head with good retention and lacing. aroma of grapefruit, malt. Pretty sweet malt forward IPA, not really fitting in the more modern term of american IPA but enjoyable nonetheless.

I wouldn't seek this one out unless I was really in the mood for a sweet ipa.

On tap. FIrst and lightest in a series of an IPA flight.

A: Looks inviting. Rich copper with fair amount of carbonation. Nice head leaving a good layer of lacing behind.
S: Mostly caramel, malty, boozy.
T: Predominantely malty caramel. Not very complex.
M: Decent, just enough carbonation.
O: I'm not overly impressed. Too one dimensional, and uninteresting. It doesn't taste much like an American IPA. As another reviewer mentioned, probably more like an English IPA.

I was looking really forward to trying a beer from this brewery, but I must say I was disappointed by this one... Rest of the flight.... here we go.

A: Copper appearance. One finger of head with decent retention and lacing as well.

S: Definitely picking up hops on the smell.

T: Nice caramel malts come through followed by a decent hop bitterness. Balanced very well and both flavors play an equal part in the enjoyment of the beer. Really the beer seems reminiscent of an English IPA. There was a slight metallic aftertaste that I really didn't care for and found rather displeasing.

M: Carbonation is moderately low and body is medium in character.

O: Really nothing I was astounded by but it was a good beer and I'm always happy to drink something for dieu du ciel.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a very hazy deep amber in color with some moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation and some mahogany highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a couple of medium patches that are slightly thicker and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith and pine hops with a lighter amount of caramel malts.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of caramel malts with a light to moderate amount of sweetness that is then followed by the flavors of the hops - it starts with moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit pith and is followed by lighter flavors of pine. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly sticky.

O: Pretty well balanced between the sweetness of the malts and the bitterness of the hops. Enjoyable but I wish the citrus hop flavors were a little brighter and less pithy.
