a: This was a clear golden color. It was served to me with a small, fizzy head.

s: Bready malts with a little honey and caramel. Hop aromas are grassy and herbal with a hint of citrus rind

t: Very much hop forward. A little biscuity malt with light sweetness quickly over powered by leafy, grassy hops that are quite bitter.

m: Slick and a little sticky.

o: For my money, maybe the best everyday beer on the board. Broad Steet Barleywine excepted.

A: More yellow than amber. Very light shade. Thin white head that dissipated quickly. Very little lacing left. .

S: Piney earthy hops and biscuit malts. A very slight hint of citrus.

T: Biscuit malts up front with a little bit of citrus. The hops bring a bit of bitterness at the end.

M: Right in the middle - medium body and carbonation. Dry with a slightly bitter finish.

O: Definitely a beer I would drink again. Doesn't top my list of top IPA's but this is a good beer.

A: Weathered orange coloring with a slight mist and healthy dose of effervesce. A cream-buff colored head is rigid and foamy, fairly sturdy at a finger high while leaving a generous amount of foam lace lashes.

S: Sticky pine and white grapefruit grind for aroma. Decent at first but doesnt hold long. average strength.

T: Sweet toasted grains upfront for flavor, wet lemony-pine, with a kiss of hops and a strong flowery dry finish. Nice dry hopping lingers on while a toasty warm malt base backs up.

M: Nice presence of carbonation, light to medium maltiness with a lingering dry hop finish off the tongue.

O: Overall starts out wet and fresh, finishes with a lingering dry hoppiness. Nice quaffer, aside from a weak nose the dry hoppiness stays with you a bit after the swallow making amends.
