Amber colored with nice white head and lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops. Was told by the brewery rep that this was in the English style. Comes off slightly more aggressive than most English pales (isn't the IBUs around 60?). Less balanced than some, with faint malts eventually being overtaken by a citrus/herby hop mixture at the end. Medium bodied with a dry finish.

Nice session brew. Doesn't go overboard in any category, meaning that one could have several without being overwhelmed.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: slightly hazy; copper colored; with a moderately aggressive pour, I got a 1/2 inch off white head that receded almost immediately; very little lacing;

S: all caramel malt with a touch of pine;

T: not a lot of flavor; what's there is mostly malt with a bit of pineapple leading into a long lasting, moderately bitter finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: there are too many good (and really good) IPAs out there to spend time and money on this one.

Serving type: bottle

This brew pour a golden orange with a frothy off white head the breaks down in to slight tracing when agitated. Piney hops and caramel on the nose. Hoppy bite followed by a smooth round finish slight carbonation. Nothing special, kk run of the mill ipa, I like the brewery though.

Serving type: growler
