12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler

A- Copper body. Just off white head, hangs at an eighth inch. A bit of lacing.

S- Toasty malt, with a slight caramel sweetness. Earthy, piney hop character.

T- Malt is bready, and just a faint sweetness. Earthy and piney hop.

M- Medium body. Slight sweetness, but a nice dull bitterness to keep it in check. Finish is dry.

O- BA claims this is an American IPA, but ABC claims its an English IPA. For an English IPA, this is pretty solid. More balanced, and the hop character is earthy, and has that dull bitterness.

Solid average IPA. Small head and okay lacing. Light copper color.
Nose gets pine and floral mostly. Nice bite with a sweet taste behind the hops. Not really bready but almost wine like. Carbonation is a little above average.
Nothing unique here except the grape undertone. Good solid choice and my first beer from this brewery.

Pours a clear golden with a white film for a head.

Floral and piney hop aroma with some grassy malt underneath.

Flavor is of pine hop, honey malts, and a grassy finish.

Medium body with a tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Fairly average IPA, drinks easy enough and tastes fine, but not outstanding in any way. If you are dying for an IPA, this will do, but it's not going to rival your favorites in the style in all likelihood.
