A very solid IPA. Here goes:

A: Clear amber-orange with a very large head that leaves a ton of lacing. Lots of protein content apparent. Great appearance. 4.75/5.00

S: Lots of grapefruit, lemon, orange-peel and pine. Also caramel malt to balance out the hops. 4.5/5.0

T: Good. Pine is more apparent in the taste than in the nose. Overall taste lemon, orange, pine and grapefruit - the last two of these are the most apparent. The beer also has somewhat of a malt backbone to balance out the hops. I enjoyed this beer a lot. 4.25/5.00

M: A little under-carbonated, but the malt makes the beer amply thick. Good, but not great. 4/5

O: I really enjoyed this beer. 4.5/5

Bought as a 12 oz bottle in Elkhart, IN. Poured into a glass.

Nice aroma, blending some pineapple and some pine.

Pours a clear orange liquid with an off-white head. Leaves belgium lace on the glass.

Flavor is nice and refined. I agree with the label that says "just the right amount of bite," as the hops are well-balanced. I might be inclined to call this an American Pale Ale though rather than an IPA, but that might because I've had too many crazy IPA's of late.

Nice and dry with some fruity pineapple-y notes. More aromatic than bitter hops.

Nice smooth medium-mouthfeel.

I must say that this is my second outstanding beer from Upland Brewing company. I want more!
