Pours deep golden with a foamy head. Trailing lace sticks.
The smell is of mild smoked meat, herbal, minty, spicy hops.
The taste is of light smoke that weaves in and out. Herbal/minty character also weaves in and out. A sweet touch in the middle leads to an aspirin-like bitterness in the finish.
It is light-bodied, as intended, I assume. Somewhat fizzy initially, it eventually gives way to a smooth texture.
An "interesting", unique brew. I can see scores varying on this. Not sure that I really loved the smoked meat/minty character combination, but I liked it enough to drink it and enjoy it. Wouldn't seek it out again, but would recommend trying, as there is nothing "wrong" with it - just would depend on the palate/personal taste.

Served in a tumbler.
Would have loved it if the label had mentioned something about the smoke, but, hey, what do I know about marketing or disclosure? Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger or so of lightly dirty-white foam. The nose comprises blunt smoke (I'm thinking mesquite, though it's only vaguely characteristic), light menthol, light mint, mild spicy greens, and a touch of Band-Aid. The taste brings in more of the same, the smoke and spicy mint battling for coverage, the smoke usually winning out. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a decent smoked IPA, but one that doesn't juggle the smoke and hops all that well (the completely-forgotten malts are another story altogether) for my tastes.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of hops, slight citrus, pine, hint of yeast, and a hint of pale malt. Does not fit the style of a Smoked Beer. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of hops, slight citrus, pine, hint of yeast, and a hint of sweet malt. Overall, decent appearance, weak aroma, Smoke is nonexistent in both aroma and body, and not complex.

Nice clean orange with a string of tiny bubbles, thin white cap, and oodles of lacing.
Smells lightly medicinal with a slap of peppermint toothpaste.
Slight malt, plenty of minty hops, tingly menthol, and a spearmint finish.
Crisp, clean, surprisingly enjoyable.
In theory, session IPA's are a fantastic idea....in practice they often suck. Furthermore has made an enjoyable, drinkable, non-shitty session IPA with enough hops to say good-day while not making you say good-night.

Pours a soapy, white head that laces nicely. Soft, citrus-floral aroma. Golden clear color. Starts with a nice, fruity bitterness and acidity. Moves into a citrus rind bitterness, then a HUGE wave of smooth malt with a touch of smokiness. Lingering citrus rind bitterness with sweet malt and a floral backing.
This is really nice. It's quite interesting in that it's very floral and fruity, but also very malty. I LOVE a Rauchbier, and this is very subtle on the smoke, but the cherry wood really adds a nice fruitiness with the floral hops and smokey acidity. I like it alot.

This was a disappointment. No aroma what so ever, dishwater aftertaste, decent hoppiness, but not enough to balance the dishwater and lack of any hop aroma. Definitely Incomparable to the other session IPA beers out there such as Founders all day or goose island's.

On tap at Old Fashion. Listed as an IPA.
A: served ice cold in a frozen pint glass. Seriously it's as if old fashion hasn't been pouring for years... Crystal clear golden yellow in color. Little head. Some light lacing.
S: very restrained aroma though that's likely from being ice cold. Light pale malts some citrus and a hint of mint.
T: taste is also fairly light. Light pale
Malts. Light sweetness. A bit of orang and bitter citrus rind. Herbal minty. There is a chemical aftertaste in the backend. Possibly the smoke?
M: lighter body. Appropriate carbonation. Moderate, soapy bitterness.
O: Aside from the soapiness, this isn't a bad beer. Certainly not at $11/pitcher.

Had no idea this was a smoked beer until I looked here. Tastes more like a session IPA with a hint of smoke. Malty backbone, biscuity, honey, earthy hops with a hint of citrus finishing with a touch of wood bark and smoke. The nose is sweet with some green wood notes. I love smoked beers and this just does not fit into the category at all. Good beer, especially for the ABV, but just not to style.
