look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a dark golden copper with a light orange hue and a single finger head of off-white foam.

Fresh cut grass, pine, grainy malt, and some citrus notes coming through.

Citrus fruit, grassy, pine, and a caramel malt backbone.

Light-medium bodied, medium carbonation, somewhat astringent, grainy, and citrus bitterness.

Overall, I dug the flavor and aroma of this one, but the slightly astringent/grainy mouthfeel degraded my score slightly.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Look-color is clear amber, piers three fingers of very sticky, off white head that retains very well.
Smell-Pine, slight floral notes, mild tropical fruit. bit of malt graininess in the backbone.
Taste- some pine upfront, very slight notes of tropical fruit, then comes lots of malt notes of caramel and biscuit.
Feel- Light/medium body, not too juicy nor crisp nor dry. very "Typical" feel for an IPA.
Overall- its possible that this beer wasn't as fresh as it could have been, the hops were pretty absent. the flavor is nice but the malt was more dominant then what i seek in an IPA.

Serving: 16oz can into pint
Served: 1 January 2015

Appearance: Pours a light tannish color with golden accents. Not much reddish tint coming through like in many American IPAs. Bright white one finger head that leaves some lacing.

Aroma: Bright grassy herbal hops with a touch of grapefruit.

Taste: Lots of hops with similar qualities as the aroma. Slightly bitter, and with some slight astringent straw-like tastes on the back end as the beer warms.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with high carbonation.

Overall: A serviceable IPA.

A well executed IPA. Big citrus hops with a fairly extensive malt backbone. Little grassy. Enjoyable, was bought in a mixed pack of cans from this brewery, who make very solid beers.
