I am sampling a cold growler poured into a pint glass while sitting outside next to a lake.
The brew pours a clear copper color with creamy bleached white head that remains as a thin surface layer throughout sampling. Aroma is some rindy hops with citrus and rind notes mixed, not a whole lot else on the nose. First sip reveals an average body and mild carbonation. Flavor is grainy and husky malt with some caramel then rolls to some piney and citrusy hops. The hops linger slightly on the finish. An average brew in terms of complexity but very drinkable and not over the top hoppy.

Another great brew from our local brewery. Pours a orange copper color with minimal head, and slightly hazy. Smell a bit sweet, not overpowering. Tastes great, malt sweetness up front, hops coming in afterwards, a bit grassy and citrus like. Finishs real nice. A definete session beer, A very tasty session beer.

Pours copper witha thin white head. Smells of sweet malt and hops.

Taste is of hops and sweet/sour malt. Very well balanced. mouthfeel is sticky sweet with a fruity, hoppy aftertaste that lingers nicely. A tasty beer and smooth for an IPA (that's what it advertises on the label). Much better on draft though and that's how I would recommend you experience it.
