Thanks to Eric for this one!
Label printed: MFG. 12.07.13 Guessing that's a best by date.

Bright orange with a light haze after the final pour, fluffy sudsy head that rises above the rim of the glass in an irregular, craggy form. Lots of sticky, bubbled lace in the glass. Tiny champagne trails of bubbles.

Hoppy aroma, grapefruit, candied orange peel, and sweet caramel malt.

Taste is balanced, smoothly sweet malt blends seamlessly with soft citrus notes of bitter grapefruit and sweet orange. Lingering grassy bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Overall a very classic IPA, full of malt and citrus, easily sessionable.

Aroma of heavy grapefruit, quite nice and very American. In the taste, grapefruit, pineapple and sap with a strong bitterness. Citrus hops, also earthy with notes of pine. Medium bodied and has a crisp hop bite. Solid high level of carbonation. Overall this is a treat. Thanks Zach.

Picked this one up since it rated similarly to Hop Knot.

A - 4.0 - Pours a nice orange amber color that's kind of hazy but that's alright. Has a half finger of white head at first that disappears to leave a nice lacing on the glass. The bottles/cans are a very plain design, which doesn't make any difference to me anyway.

S - 4.5 - Hops in your face. Very citrusy/piney smell not accompanied by very much malt at all. Grapefruit and citrus zest.

T - 4.25 - Nice and bitter, with grapefruit flavors from the hops at the forefront. Pine needles are prevalent too.

M - 4.0 - light-medium mouthfeel, very bitter, leaves a nice bitter hop aftertaste like most IPAs, alc completely covered

O - 4.25 - This is a great IPA, especially for the price at $9/6 pack of cans, or $7.50/6 pack of bottles. I don't know why so many breweries are insisting on charging more for cans but it's frustrating, especially in the summer when everyone wants to go swimming/boating/fishing/etc. But hey, at least it's not as expensive as Sculpin or Gubna.

Pours a cloudy amber with a two-finger, billowy near-white head. Good lacing. Great aroma, a pleasant melange of citrus pith, spice, pine resin, and a hint of dank. Some bready notes can also be detected. Solid malt taste with citrus bitterness. Sweet on the back end. Finishes dry. Medium body with nice carbonation. Overall a solid brew, between this and La Cumbre's Elevated IPA, New Mexico is demonstrating an uncanny ability to produce quality IPAs

Cloudy amber/orange,fluffy one finger head,lots of tiny bubbles,fair amount of sticky lacing left behind.

Aroma is grapefruit peel,orange & pine, hops are in the spotlight.

Taste is a pleasant mirror of the aroma, lots of bright citrus flavors,pleasant bitter aftertaste,malt just enough to support the hops. Alcohol nicely hidden.

Light medium body, above average mouthfeel, well carbonated.

Straight up solid IPA that has a lot going for it, nicely hoppy, with a crisp dry finish.

Thanks to Aaron M. for this one. Poured into can shaped glass. Poured a clean, clear copper gold color with over 1/4 inch of off-white head that had moderate retention and OK lacing.

Pine! As soon as the can was opened a huge blast of pine filled the air. On closer sniff, there was a light malt scent underneath, and a trace of floral hops as well. The taste wasn't as piney as the aroma, there was some citrus showing up as well, and the malt showed up in a slightly sticky-sweet finish.

The body was the typical medium of the style. Drinkability was good, about the same as most of the style. Overall, a solid, enjoyable example of the style. This beer shows that good, quality craft beers almost everywhere in the the USA. You don't have to hunt down far-off brews, drink fresh and local, and enjoy it!
