Thanks to Jeff for splitting this can with everyone. Goldenrod, honeysuckle color with a slightly dusty white head that froths up nicley and leaves behind some good lacing. Funny thing, I'm looking at someone else's glass right now. I decided to drink straight from the can... Yeah, I know this isn't Heady Topper, but I was far to tired to be bothered with pouring my own glass!
Grassy hops, even more piney and bitter on the nose with a touch of resins and hop oils. Not quite dank-a-lank, but pretty resinous and "raw", yet not over-the-top with abrasiveness. Good level for a single IPA, I'd say. Malt balance is... nice enough. Some bread with a very, very light toasty note going on. Some moderate citric hops in the finish, but not too much.
The flavor contains a bit more grapefruit, pithy and kind of bitter, followed up by a larger wave of those oily and resinous hops that I was getting on the nose. Piney and actually quite bitter, they'll scrap the saliva from your tongue and clean out your gumline in no time at all. Some mild lemon peel and more grapefruit in the finish, wafting across a soft blanket of bready malt. Medium bodied, crispy with tight carbonation.
Definitely a nice surprise... I wasn't expecting much from this, and it ended up being pretty tasty. Having this one makes me want to get my hands on their "8-Bit" Pale Ale even more now. Solid, piney, bitter IPA with good character and not too much hindrance from the malt side of things. A nice beer to keep on hand.

Ethos is a solid IPA that was brought over by my awesome neighbor. The beer poured a nice copper color with white head that did not leave much lace. The scent was fresh hops that leaned toward bitter. The taste was an evenly balanced IPA with good malt and bitter hops through the drink. The mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a solid offering.
