3.78/5  rDev -5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into my snifter from a bottle graciously given to me by dschuster03. No bottled on date.

Thick, cloudy orange/amber color with an off-white head that has many tightly formed bubbles. Decent head that faded to leave decent lacing down the side.

Citrusy, acidic, sweet aroma with a smell that makes me think there is going to be a decent malt base to this beer as well. Not an amazingly prominent hop profile, but it is still there.

Taste has a sharp, bitter bite to it. This is definitely a very balanced IPA. Resiny and caramel are the next tastes that I notice.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. There is a fair amount of carbonation present that smooths out as this one warms up.

Drinkability on this one is great considering it is an approachable 6%, well-balanced IPA.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

huge head. foamy and white.
typical IPA aromas, but nothing stand-out. kind of a bland smell to the brew....
a little sweet on the tongue at first, then some caramel malt, and the slight hop bitterness hits as it drains.... very good taste with some sweetness.
overall, very good. another new Midwest brew for me. lots of taste (as opposed to the west coast bitter) but starting to see a definite trend... maybe that's why the west coast began doing bitter....?
