Brand new IPA, from the also new Stegmaier Variety Pack.

Pours a clear amber color with about an inch of tan head. Retains a patchy lace and leaves a good amount of webbing on the sides.

Smell has a nice amount of hops going on, with aromas of grapefruit and pine resin. Caramel malt as well. Pretty standard IPA nose here but well done.

Likewise with the taste, which is even more citrusy than the nose was, with a good amount of grapefruit in particular. Also some sweet caramel that has a buttery quality to it. Nice punch of hop bitterness in the finish, as well as more grapefruit flavor, this time the bitter pith. Again, pretty standard for an IPA, but that's just fine because it is quite nice.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, appropriately carbonated and quite smooth. Decent slickness to it, although perhaps it could be a touch creamier.

Like their new Pale Ale this is another job well done by the Lion. This is a well balanced IPA that has enough hops to satisfy most any hophead but also isn't overblown. Assuming that straight cases of the IPA run about the same as the Variety Pack, $26 or so, I will definitely be buying more of this. An excellent value and a very solid beer.

2.68/5  rDev -21.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Poured from 12ox bottle into standard pint glass.

Coppery coloring, clear, decent head

Smell, well didn't get much at all, just a "beer" smell. Sorry if that's not too helpful.

Taste & mouth was...not good. No hops to speak of, and left that fizzy carbonation feel in the back of the mouth. Wouldn't have thought I was drinking an IPA.

Overall, not something I would recommend, despite the $23 for a case price.
