look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Clear amber orange colored beer with a very small white colored head. This is pretty much the color I call IPA orange.

Smell is sweet malt and hops, sweeter than most IPAs. This one leans more to the citrus side than the pine. Passion fruit and pineapple are strong in this . Grapefruit, orange and lemon are lesser scents. Slightly woody the malt here is more or less simple syrup.

Starts out sweet and woody at first. Sweet upfront and ends bitter. Tastes like it smells but not as intensely. Bitterness is medium.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a nice IPA, just wish is tasted more like it smells

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Picked up a single, 12oz bottle from Total Wine, Charlotte (Park Road). Poured into a Sam Adams “Perfect Pint” glass...

A: Slightly cloudy orange; cream white head leaves some strands of lace, but nothing crazy; cool label art and “compass” bottle; bottled on date (2-15-12) is a plus.

S: Orange; citrusy hops; bread crust; pretty clean IPA aroma.

T: Light pine and citrus pith hoppiness; not much malt presence; a little resinous on the finish; good, but I was expecting a little more for a 7.3% IPA.

M: Medium-body; moderate to high carbonation; a touch slick / oily; pretty spot-on for an IPA at this abv.

O: A pretty good “west coast IPA” here; not as robust as I was expecting given the abv of 7.3%, but good nonetheless; perhaps a little too dry and resinous to be refreshing or a “lawnmower IPA” but good stuff.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a crystal clear copper with a 1/2 white head of multiple size bubbles that dissipates quickly. Nice lacing.

Nose is pine and orange with some sweet caramel malt, tropical fruit and citrus.

Taste is fresh citrus hop bitter. This was bottled on 3/29 so its nice and fresh. Sweet bready/caramel malts act to balance the beer but the hops are all up in yer grill. Very tasty apricot/tropical fruit hop flavor.

Mouthfeel is super creamy with medium body and light carbonation.

I really enjoyed this IPA. Nothing that I've never tasted before but very solid nonetheless. At the price tag, I will def buy this again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Orange Copper body, with 2 finger head that laces that glass, and fades slowly over time.

S: Soft citrus, orange zest, soft honey, but not leaning much towards the caramel side. Tropical fruits. The hop citrus notes are the main attraction, though subtle, not overpowering. Slight medicinal/aspirin quality.

T: More orange peel (hop) bitterness in the taste. Aspirin quality persists with hop bitterness. Soft grass notes in middle through after taste.

M: Medium dryness, soft body, mid-high carbonation levels. Lingering bitterness.

O: A pleasant beer from this great brewery. It fits well in their line of satisfying beers. I find the resinous/orange bitterness slightly distracting, but that is a personal preference that has nothing to do with how this beer was brewed. That said, it still leans towards the balanced end of the spectrum, which I appreciate.

For some (great) reason I would love to enjoy this with a blue cheese, and fig spread.

Poured into a Sam Smith pint glass.

A: Pours a typical golden amber color with average clarity and a fairly vibrant color. An aggressive pour yielded a three finger offwhite color head with average retention and solid lacing. The head retains a lot more strongly away from the inside of the glass.

S: The hops lead the way here, there's a blend of tropical fruits such as mango and passion fruit, some floral notes, and a bit of pine. Hiding behind the hoppiness is a subtle malt backbone.

T: The hop profile on the opening sip is primarily floral/piny in nature - I can tell this one uses Centennial hops. This is a fairly fresh bottle (about 30 days old), so the aforementioned hops haven't degraded to the point where they start tasting soapy. This hop bitterness washes away near the finish to reveal a pleasant caramel maltiness and only a slight hint of butter, giving it a solid (if not amazing) balance. All in all, this is a typical IPA, just done well (and fresh!)

M: Slick bodied, with only minor dryness in the finish. Not quite a palate killer, though you can still feel some lingering bitterness on the tongue.

O: Very solid IPA, but beware that it behooves you to drink it fresh. I got this for a solid price ($9/6 pk.), but I don't know if this would be a go to IPA for me. Still pretty damn good regardless.

12oz bottle, bottled on the march 30th. Freshest IPA ive ever purchased! Less than a week, how did this make it from Utah to Boston.

A: Light Rusty color, quite clear, pours a white medium sized head that looks a bit sticky/thick. Head dies down quick but it leaves a great patchwork wall of lacing.

S: Grassy, Floral, Grapefruit, Maryjane, hint of saltiness/sweatyness, caramel sweetness too. Could smell this as soon as I started pouring. Funky and strong.

T: A punch of Piney/lime hops up front with powdered sugar, then the slightly roasted,rasin,caramel,tobacco malt bill starts to creep, a more typical/tropical pineapple hop flavor comes in strong. Finishes with a lingering bitterness of sour apple, mango. Has that dry asprin like flavor in finish too. A bit tart/asprin-y/metallic for my palate, maybe the finish is a bit too bitter for me.

M: High carbonation, pretty thick/syrupy/oily body. Really coats the walls of your mouth. ABV well integrated.

O: Interesting brew, not your run of the mill IPA. Lot of flavors intertwined here, not one huge flavor dominating. I'm guessing a complex hop bill outside the usual C's. A few flavor notes I wasn't crazy about, but I would still recommend trying this at least once as its certainly unique.
