Had this on draft, much better
BBD of 16 Apr 13, got in under the wire
My first brew dog beer if memory serves me correctly
Pours a slightly hazed apricot color with 3+ fingers of cream colored head. Never really cleared up, fantastic head retention & lacing though
S: Orchard fruit & tons of leafy hops & little bit of pine
T: Biscuitty malt, leafy hops a touch of pine resin & chalky dryness up front. Pears & apricot mingle in as this warms, plus leafy & tobacco hops, plus marmalade & more dryness. Finishes dry, fruitty, & leafy with just a bit of orange peel
MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, nicely balanced
Seems more British than American to me, not bad, but would only try again if uber fresh, but drinks easy enough

This is almost a session IPA, not boozy not overwhelming hops. A well designed beer. I say almost because its right on the cusp with an abv in the 5-6% range. Its very drinkable. The price was good for a bomber. I would prefer to get this in a six pack, but I have only seen the big boys around here. I love hoppy beers and this one has a good amount of hop presence there, however, its also not a Stone IPA either.
Color: Mild bronze, a decent amount of head that remained throughout.
Smell: Balance of malt and hops, not an intense hop aroma, but a good amount of floral hops.
Taste: Balanced. this could be my go to standard IPA if it were more readily available around here and in six packs. I am not saying they don't put this in six packs, but they are not found around here.
Overall: A pleasant experience, you could drink a few 12 oz beers or a couple of bombers and not be bombed. It has a nice IPA flavor, it is what a regular IPA should taste like.
