Clear yellowish orange with a fluffy white head that sticks around for a long time. Leaves nice sticky lacing.
Hit first with some sweet malts, followed by a mellow citrusy hop aroma. Pretty subdued, not too complex, but nice.
A little malt forward, but pretty balanced between the same sweet malts I picked up in the aroma, followed by some basic citrusy hops. I'm not really getting much of the piney hops they describe, but they are in there in the background. Kind of basic, but good.
Moderate body and modrate carbonation. Basically spot on with what I expect from the style as well. Some nice creaminess too it too. Refreshing, yet has some substance. Very nice.
My hopes were pretty high given the super high marks for this one, and it's definitely pretty good, it just didn't really stand out to me all that much. Maybe it's a bit old. I'd recommend it though, for just a good, basic IPA that isn't trying anything too crazy.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger cap of a pure white color. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave a light level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a bready malt smell with some notes of graininess mixed within. Along with the bready smells are some nice earthy and piney smells as well as some sweeter aromas. The sweet aromas are mainly of a fruit nature with some pear, orange, and a little bit of a tropical fruit smell of mango.
Taste – The taste begins bitter bite right from the start with a nice earthy flavor mixed with some grapefruit hop as well. Along with the bitter hop are some nice bready and sweeter tangerine and mango flavors that end up balancing the hop nicely with the sweeter and malty flavors creating a base taste that lasts throughout the flavor profile. As the taste advances further, more hop flavors come to the tongue with some more earthy tastes as well as a resinous pine. While these increases in hop flavors come, the grapefruit mellows some and a bit of a doughy and caramel flavor take its place. This creates a smoother taste at the end of the tongue, and when mixed with the nice hop profile leaves a rather pleasant “dank hop” flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. For the mix of bready and hoppy flavors the thicker body is fantastic as it accentuates these flavors wonderfully all while the higher carbonation level keeps it quite refreshing.
Overall – A very tasty and nicely malty and hoppy IPA. Quite nice.
