A - Light copper color with a medium sized, foamy, soapy, airy, bright white head. Average retention leaving a decent ring of lace.

S - Caramel malt is pretty strong. Pretty balanced IPA. Some citrus, some pine, and some earthy/herbal hops. A little disjoined hop aroma, but the fact that it's so balanced hides it well.

T - Very balanced caramel malt heavy IPA. Some toffee and bread flavors as well. For the hops there are orange and earthy hops with touches of herbal/pine hop flavors. Much earthier than sweet or fruity. Reflects the malt driven flavor with the hops not necessarily jumping out of the glass.

M - Medium body with average carbonation. Fairly slick and oily.

D - Easy to drink and not too bitter (a bit of a kick on the finish). But I can't see me wanting to grab another like some of the better IPAs I've had.

Notes: Very balanced and malt driven. Not a citrus or fruit bomb and more of an American/English hybrid (more American though). Ok but not anything noteworthy.

Thanks to Dr. K for the bottle. I poured this into a New Belgium tulip.

A) Nice clean copper, with a half a finger of head. There was okay retention and a little lacing. Carbonation also noted.

S) Nice sweetness, which included pineapple and a fruit cocktail aroma. There was a nice floral presence as well.

T) Not as sweet a the aroma. There was light citrus, but more hop bitterness, pine, definitely a little alcohol. Finishes with some citrus rind. A nice balance.

M) Medium body with a good amount of carbonation. This was really pretty smooth. The bitterness and rind to this one really coat the mouth.

O) This was a pleasant surprise. It's not that my expectations were really low, but this beer definitely exceeded them. Worth a try....

Served in a shaker pint with only a minimal white head. Slightly hazy amber in color. Light lacing. Aroma is a blend of toasty malts, pine, pine resin, and a mild skunkiness . Flavor is much better: a blend of clean, grainy malts, toast, and pine with some lighter citrus notes. Strong dry bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied, with good carbonation. Borderline astringency. This is an IPA that pushes the line with bitterness, but still seems able to deliver.
