Pours a clear, copper color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and great retention. Tastes of hops, floral hops, sweet malt, slight caramel malt, hint of pale malt, hint of alcohol, hint of biscuit, and slight hops oils. Fits the style of an American Amber / Red Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel malt, hint of pale malt, hint of roasted malt, slight earthy malt, hops, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, body, aroma, and blend.

Poured into a willi with a thick and rocky two finger head with a thick lacing. medium coppper with a brownish hue.

smells of highly hopped with centennials. a strong caramely malt in the backbone and a crackery/bready nose. Oh Man.

Taste is extremely fresh with a robust hop boquet. piney with a slight grapefruit flavor and a incredibly balanced malt flavor. I think this is the best IPA they have next to Goldie Hops.

Mouth is slightly oily but too fresh to be viscous. superior balance and drinkability. I wish this was a constant offering.

Serving type: on-tap

Had on tap at Brew Co

Very deep rich copper color with a nice 2 finger head that lingers well about 1 finger high and laces down the glass. Very deep color.

Floral/grassy very fresh hops with a subtle sweetness to go along with a nice citrus notes.

Much the same as the nose very fresh flavor tastes like it was brewed that day. Bitter finish with a nice sweet note right at the end. Excellent offering

Smooth and very flavorful on the palate leaves a nice bitter bite after each drink. Suprisingly complex with the bitter sweetness cmooning together very well

I could drink this all summer long, hell I would drink it all year if they had it in bottles I would have been drinking one right now.

This poured a dark copper color with a generous white head that lasted throughout. Very nice hop aroma with a subtle maltiness. Taste is dominated up front by the hoppiness, but is balanced on the finish by the malty richness. Mouthfeel is good and drinkability was pretty high. I enjoyed it very much.
