M: Medium bodied and smooth for an IPA, great on a hot day.

Picked a bomber of this up at City Beer Store for $4.99. Bottle dated 1-8-13.
Excellent clarity, golden color with a thick, slightly rocky head. Great retention and lacing. Floral and citrus hoppy aromas with modest fruity esters and toasted bready maltiness. More perfumey character (not sure if this is from the hops or alcohol) along with that floral hoppiness resting atop a toasted baguette-like maltiness. Lemon rind citrusy bitterness lingers on into a semi-dry finish. Medium body with a moderate carbonation. Some warming from alcohol but very smooth considering the ABV.
Auburn Alehouse continues to impress me with just about every beer I pick up from them. Great flavor and drinkability, I'd likely order a 2nd and 3rd pint.

Bottled on 6.11.2013, enjoyed mid-July.
This pours a clear golden straw color with generous foam. The aroma has a piney green grass stickiness to it. The flavor is surprisingly piney and resiny with a pronounced bitterness and a phenol heavy, slightly boozy finish that's somewhat off putting. The boozy aroma becomes more pronounced as it opens up, and finishes off balance.
I'm guessing nugget hops? From the description on the bottle (something about appreciating this tasty nugget of a beer).

Attractive light amber in the Stella Artois glass. Nicely sudsy on the tongue and plenty of foam in the glass. Aroma is flowery with a touch of resins.
Pleasant balance of malt and hops. Not an IPA by any stretch of imagination. Quite malty and strong (label and brewery currently say this is 7.8%). Hops are piney and aromatic, but the bitterness comes on for the finish. Tangy and spicy brew that is prefectly drinkable. It's more like a strong pale Bock Beer than anything else. Actually an improvement on a lot of Bocks with the tasty hops.
Bitterness level is just right for gulping, but it it rather alcohol infused. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Beer Revolution in Oakland.

A - Served a copper-orange color with a finger of frothy off-white head. The head hangs around for a while leaving behind some nice lacing as it fades.
S - Aroma is a mix of piney hops and sweet malt. There is also a bit of booze and some biscuit mixed in as well.
T - Starts off with a mix of rich caramel malt and some light grassy hops. Through the middle some citrus hop and bitterness comes through. The finish is a mix of grassy hop with a some sweet caramel and a touch of booze.
M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and fairly crisp. The finish is a nice blend of sweetness and bitterness.
D - Very drinkable. Interesting mix of IPA and strong ale, but it was missing a bit of punch or kick.

Poured from a growler filled the same day. Thin head on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma is honey with a lemon drop. Nice.
The taste is moderate lemon bitterness, good balance thoughout.
The texture is crisp with soft edges. Moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable beer.
