Got this 22oz bottle in trade with mjl21. Thanks again for everything Mike! Review from notes.
A- Pours a clear golden light copper color. Two finger bine white head stays for a short period. Nice ringy lacing on the glass along with some sticky streaks here and there.
S- Nice hoppy aroma right from the get go. Nothing in this is too overpowering which is a nice thing from time to time. Nice citrus (grapefruit maybe some tangerine) hop burst in the front end of the scent. There is light bready malts in the background throughout the aroma but even this is covered nicely with hops. Light pine bitter smell comes in the tail end of this beer.
T- This is what I think a IPA should be tasting like. Good citrus overtones in the front of this beer....very straightforward. The malts in this balance the beer out nicely with a light bready sweetness to it. Bitter bite in the tail end of this beer I think. Good little extra kick when you think the beer is done.
M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Nice hop resin is left on the teeth and all around the mouth. Light bready malts with citrus hops is left on the palate and in the aftertaste of this beer. Light creamy feel to this in the mouth as well.
D- Very drinkable IPA that I am going to try to get some more of. I would gladly pick this out time and time again. Nice sessionable IPA in my opinion.

Hopworks IPA pours a clear honey orange with a large, just off white head that is dense and bubbly. Head has good retention and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma contains a bunch of resin, along with juicy orange and grapefruit, just a hint of light bready malts.
Taste starts with a bit of bread then bitter grapefruit and rindy orange, with a juicy orange and sweet tangerine finish. Fruity and resinous aftertaste. Feel and carbonation are pretty average for a beer like this, carbonation maybe just a touch more than usual, and both work very well along with a bit of creamy/breadiness.
