Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, floral hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with a strong burst of grassy hops bitterness that is quickly followed by a heavy citrus and caramel sweetness. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is very solid IPA to drink for a long time.

12 oz poured into a snifter

A- A clear copper color with a small white head.

S- Hoppy, floral, grapefruit rinds, citrus.

T- Fruity, sweet malts, pine, very floral, some wet grass, missing some balance with the flavors.

M- Smooth, light to medium body.

O- A good IPA worth trying. Balance did seem a little off but I would pick it up again.

bottle into glass

A - pours a 1" head, recedes to a small head with moderate lacing. Light golden/orange that is a little hazy

S - Loved the smell the second I opened the bottle. Fruit, hops, and flowers, can get a little malt on the nose

T - great hops, grapefruit and sweet fruit, caramel malt, finishes with a floral note

M - Medium-light body for an IPA, medium-high carbonation

O - Taste delivers on the promises of the nose, I would prefer a tad less carbonation, but a really great beer, it is very refreshing for an IPA, love the sweet fruit and floral.

A: Pours a clear, clean golden-orange with a BIG bubbly white head of foam on top. Some minimal bubble action in the body. Preliminary lacing is looking good. The thing that stands out most here is how crystal clean the body is -- really nice.

S: Hops coming through nicely. Getting that nice piney / grassy smell over whatever citrus might be around. Smells super crisp. Really nice smell -- if the taste is anything like the aroma hen this should be good. Sweet malts are coming though too.

T: Compares favorably to DC Brau IPA. The hops are nice, not subtle, but very unique. Pine / Grassy aroma transfer to the taste. Kinda of a resin taste. Nice finish, slightly bitter, but really coats the mouth with hops. Crisp. Refreshing. Super solid brew here.

M: Medium body. Nice carbonation. Smooth and creamy -- no real bite. Oily feel. All good here.

O: I had heard good things about this brew on Beer Advocate. And, it's true. It's really good. Again, I compare it to DC Brau, but this gets higher scores because DC Brau is littered with off-putting sediment. This is so clean, crisp and beautiful. I recommend this to anyone.

12 oz. bottle poured into a cervoise glass

Pours golden amber with orange hues; two finger bright white fluffy head. Above average retention and quite a bit of splotchy lacing. Citrus blossoms, grapefruit, and a hint of pine on the nose. Grapefruit rind bitterness right off the bat, met by some lightly sweet caramel malt and pineapple. Finishes crisp and dry with the return of bitter citrus rind. Lighter side of medium bodied, well carbonated, smooth and silky mouthfeel. Solid and enjoyable IPA.
