3.7/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz bottle into CBS snifter. Served slightly chilled.

A) An excellent looking amber, with a very slight haze. There was a finger of head, which had good retention. Plenty of sticky lacing, could be seen clinging to the snifter.

S) Whoa... The aroma here put a hop whoopin on my nostrils. This was quite pungent. Heavy pine, citrus zest, bits of orange and lemon, mild sweetness. A little green onion.

T) Indeed, the hop whoopin continues. Any of the mild sweetness found on the nose is pretty much gone with the flavor. Quite bitter, like chewing up pine needles and hop cones. The green onion is more prominent in the flavor. My taste buds would have liked this beer to have a little bit of a malt whoopin too.

M) A nice medium body, moderately carbonated. This has a little zip. The finish and aftertaste are mostly grass and pine. The quality of the mouthfeel allows for a pleasurable drinking experience, despite the intensity of the hops.

O) I've been waiting to try this one out, and was plenty happy to find out it was being bottled. In the end, I would have preferred a little more malt sweetness to round this out. I'm guessing that was never the intention of this beer, and the plan was to whoop your ass with hops. Well, mission accomplished. If you love hops, I strongly recommend this beer.

On tap at Cooper's Tavern. Served in a mason jar 10/26/2014.

A- Clear orange-copper body, half finger white head, no retention time, nice lacing. It's a bit hard to see in the mason jar, but it looks solid. [3.75]

S- Resinous pine and grapefruit hops, a hint of sweet caramel malt. A bit of grassiness. [3.75]

F- Caramel, pine, grapefruit, herbal flavours, resinous. Not complicated but it certainly meets any definition of a solid IPA. Good balance of malt and hops. [4]

M- Medium bodied, a bit too bitter for my tastes on the finish but nicely carbonated and soft on the palate. [3.5]

O- Solid local IPA, nice bitterness and hop aromas abound in this beer. Would definitely recommend trying. [3.75]

Final score: 3.84

Excellent IPA. Big IBU yet the mouth feel was what I would call tangy, very drinkable stuff well crafted. A generous amount of lasting head, not foaming up but ready set to drink. A little cloudy golden. Mango, grapefruit, resiny. Bottle from 20 West Wine and Spirits.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Half Acre tulip?

A- pours a light golden with a 2 finger white head. Some blotches and amoeba lacing remains.

S- light caramel, big bitter grapefruit and citrus and pine.

T- sweet pale malts, citrus, big bitter grapefruit and orange going on here with some pine bitterness at the finish.

M- medium body and carbonation. Light feel with slight slickness.

O- nice ipa. Definitely citrus and hop bitterness forward but has just enough malt balance.
