On draft at RB Cincy of course.
Pours a golden amber in color with a nice inch of frothy head. Smell is subdued, but there are some piney, grassy hop notes in the nose.
The hops show up more in the taste. This is a decent IPA. Easily the best thing they have going at the brewery. A little disappointing on the smell, but pretty good in flavor.

Appearance - clear orange/amber, a smallish head that leaves fast but holds at the barest cover. Good patchy lacing for such a small cap.

Aroma - a floral hoppiness, somewhat distant. What is there is mostly grapefruit-like. I would expect a little more in an IPA.

Taste - bsae grain is modestly sweet, a bit chewy. The ensuing hops are a bit understated. Some florals but they are checked. Not a bitter train runaway either. The hop profile is kept entirely in a narrow band here. Tasty but not especially distinctive, maybe would better fit an APA billing. There is a medicinal twinge at the swallow and aftertaste that I don't particularly care for, but this beer is drinking fast on a Friday evening despite.

Mouthfeel - properly smooth, good crispness, just feels good.

Drinkability - I think I'd rather session with the Crosley Pale, but this one isn't bad to try for posterity's sake if you get the chance. The flavors were better defined on cask though.

A lovely shade of scarlet. Little white head that leaves an extremely thin lace around the glass.

Citrusy aromas with a floral hop background. Also some pineapple, and grapefruit aromas.

A solid IPA niceley balanced. More pine in the mouth with a grassy citrusy finish of pineapple and orange. A solid malt round out this beer.

Easy drinker with a carbonated acidic mouthfeel.
