Produced a 1 finger, off white head. Beer color is a very translucent light brown.

The smell was piney hops, light sweetness of caramel.

The taste was similar. Light-ish body, and medium carbonation.

This is an OK beer, but not great. Too many other good IPAs out there.

12-oz bottle into Belgian ale glass

A - 3 fingers of light tan head atop a transparent body of orange amber; moderate amount of rising bubbles; great head retention and lace

S - tons of citrus, hop spice, toasted malt characteristics

T - citrus goodness with a touch of pine, peppery spice, fruity notes, big bready malt backbone; dry, citrusy finish

M - oily, smooth, medium/full body; moderate carbonation; quite pleasant

O - Sheep Head is a very nice IPA. The hop profile is delightful and the malt balance is prominent, but not overpowering. Well done, Brau!

A - Clear caramel in color with a thin off white head.

S - Bready malts, toffee, biscuit and spicy hops.

T - Same as the aroma. Bready malt, toffee, spicy, herbal hops. Bitter but still well balanced.

M - Light side of medium with moderate carbonation. Lingering bitter finish.

D - Reminds me more of a ESB than an American IPA. Wouldn't be my choice for a true American IPA but overall it is very drinkable and enjoyable.
