4.35/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Pours with a head about half an inch deep of sandy-colored, variously sized bubbles. Head leaves a sticky collar and moderate lacing despite no visible carbonation. Beer is dark amber to matte bronze in color with honeyed bronze highlights... this is a good looking beer. The aroma is surprising--I was expecting the usual pine, grapefruit, etc. Instead, this presents a bouquet garni of oregano, tarragon, and bay; reedy hop characteristics of old hay and under-ripe orange skins; subtle saltine cracker maltiness. A quiet, padding-about nosefeel. Flavors are of a moderately hefty malt backbone displaced by strong, herbal, tweedy bitterness of hop stalks. Assertive taste of grapefruit skin practically curls up the sides of the tongue. Mouthfeel is bitter without being pushy--aftertaste fades out dryly. Drinkability? I thoughtfully reviewed the first half of the bomber for as long as I could stand it, and just slurped down the rest of the bottle. While this beer was clearly not over-the-top, I appreciated its subtleties, particularly the way its aroma made me consider hops for their herbal qualities. Just a really delicious, laid-back, herby smell. I can't resist the comparison to Chartreuse. And that drinkability! Man, this one really hit the spot.

3.78/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bottled on 4/18/14.

A- Hazy orange with reddish accents. Poured with a thin 1/4 finger head that moved to a quick lace within a minute.

S- Pale malts, biscuit, some faint citrus and grass.

T - Very subdued, more like an English IPA. Mango, orange, dirt and grass on the finish, with some spice lurking in the background.

M - Carbonation is medium low, a touch watery, but very smooth refreshing.

O - Not sure if being three months old muted the hops some. Either way, this is a highly drinkable IPA that goes down fast. Will seek it out again if I find it closer to the bottle on date.
