12oz bottle (bottled 7/18/2011) poured into a tulip. Amber color, thick white foamy head that leaves behind sticky lacing.

Aroma is citrusy piney hops - maybe a little muted in this 4-month-old IPA.

Taste is relatively malt-forward: sweet fruit, caramel/crystal malt, & bitter hops with a sharp crisp finish.

Overall this is a well-crafted IPA but a little on the maltier side. This can be partially attributed to this beer's age, but even fresh I think its balance tilts toward malt vs. hops.

Look: Orange in color with a 1/4 inch off white head and ok retention and some spotty lacing

Smell: The nose is very floral and carries a candy sweetness that I associate with midwest IPA's

Taste: Very similar to the nose but with a bit of a caramel background

Mouthfeel: Medium body and medium carbonation

Overall: I have said it before and I will say it again midwest IPA's just fall short for me
