A- A dark orange color with a full finger of head. It looks like how I want my IPAs to look, though I didn't chose the best glass in a mostly painted pint.

S- Sweet with some honey, a little pine, mild sweet citrus

T- A very pleasant mix of hops and sweet malt. Pine melts into sweet bread with candied orange peel drizzled with just a little bit of caramel. It's mild enough to make me want another drink, but interesting enough that I enjoy each drink.

M- Some lingering bitterness and it gets a little hot in the back of the throat. Not terrible in this respect but I wish it were either smoother or more lingering flavor.

O- A very respectable flavorful beer. I'd take a sixer of this in a pinch for an IPA.

12oz bottle, best by 4/2015, served in a snifter 2/10/2015.

A- Dark cooper body, mostly clear but slightly hazy, perhaps. One finger white head, lacing sticks for a while.

S- Toffee and floral notes, a bit of pine, that's about it. A pretty pedestrian nose; I waited for this to warm and open up, but it simply doesn't give off a whole lot.

F- Mild earthy grain, crackery sweetness, a bit of floral and pine notes, a bit of zesty bitterness. A fairly boring profile.

M- Medium-thin bodied, fair carbonation, bittersweet floral finish.

O- A fairly pedestrian IPA. Nothing special, but it's not off-putting in any way.

Solid IPA. Nothing special, but still good when in a pinch.

Not super unique or special, just a solid ipa. It might just be me, but it seems like upland has really upped their game in the past year or so.
