I bought a bomber of Nice Rack in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a bright yellow gold color, slightly hazy, with a creamy stark white head.

Smell is both fruity and candy like. Hints of sweet citrus and caramel.

Taste is a sweet citrus flavor up front, with a caramel malt presence in the middle and then a dry bitter pine finish. Really quite good.

Mouthfeel is medium, slightly cloying.

Overall a good IPA. Bitter-sweet and wet for a mid-summer afternoon.

22 picked up at Brewer's Haven Boise tonight.... Paid about $4.50ish... Poured into my large tulip... clear light orange... nice persistent white head with good sheets of lacing. Good bitterness... seems like a "Session IPA"... very light maltiness never really recovers from the bitter bite and citrus hops scrape away everything and make your palate ready for the next sip... Light body with a pretty aggressive carbonation... The bottle goes away pretty quickly, not bad but could use some refinement, but I might buy it again.

Clear amber with two fingers of white head. Fair amount of lace.
Smell is dank hops and some bready malts.
Taste is dank hops some bready malts. Plenty of hop bitterness just not a lot of different flavors. No off putting flavors either. Alcohol is well masked.
Mouthfeel is medium with a long dry bitter finish.
Overall a hoppy beer with a straight monochromatic dank hop bitterness.

My first beer by this brewery.
Pours a hefty gold/amber with a huge 2 inch head that lasts a bit. Very nice

Smell is a deep woody smell, funky , with citrus accents. Very unique.

Taste is similar, it's sort of heavy on the palate, with deep rich earthy notes, deep wood flavors throughout on this one. Intriguing balance.

Feel is well carbonated with a light and slick aftertaste.

Overall this is really pushing the boundaries of earthy beers and it works~!
