3.58/5 rDev -4.5%
A: Clear deep amber body beneath two inches of creamy off-white forth. Good retention, great lace. Lovely.
S: Good balance of hops and malt, with the former featuring both herbal and citrus notes. Lemon and caramel. A little sweeter than I like, but good.
T: Follows the nose - grapefruit, lemon, and herbal hops alongside substantial malt sweetness. Bitter, caramel-tinged finish. Pretty tasty, but nothing special.
M: Lively, frothy medium body. Bubbly enough to avoid stickiness.
O: Thoroughly respectable IPA, but not one I'll be seeking out in the future.

4.01/5 rDev +6.9%
Appearance: Pours a clear amber color capped by a fingers worth of foam; some shards of lacing are left behind
Smell: Very earthy aromatics; slightly fruity and slightly vegetal
Taste: A hint of the biscuit, up front, and then a bit of stone fruit but by mid-palate, the earthy/tobacco bitterness arrives only to be followed by an herbal/piney character after the swallow
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: What an intriguing beer - builds up like an English IPA and, all of the sudden, pulls a switcheroo with an American hop profile; really enjoyed this one

3.55/5 rDev -5.3%
Pours a light orange color. clear, white head
Smell is sweet orange, bubble gum, pine, grapefruit
Taste is sweet citrus, honey, malt, bitter herbal hop, and a strange after taste that I can not pin point
Mouthfeel is a little thicker then I like my IPAs.... Not crazy thick but could be a little thinner and crisp
Very interesting IPA.... Very different, not bad but probably will have this 6 and then go back to my go tos and leave this one on the shelf in the future.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.
Frankly, I'd rather have a hollow snake, 'cause at leas then I'd know what I'm dealing with... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear copper-brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises candied orange peel, light grapefruit peel, pine resin, and sweet caramel. The taste holds notes of sharp grapefruit rind (and peel), sweet toffee, and sharp pine needle. Everything has an astringent quality to it, making for a not-so-enjoyable experience. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, not the best IPA by any stretch of the imagination, but not horrid. Just kinda sub-average.

4.04/5 rDev +7.7%
Appearance: Pours a crystal clear golden orange with three fingers of creamy, bubbly white foam.
Smell: Sweet honey, light floral and citrus hops, and some biscuity malt. Pleasant but fairly muted.
Taste: Mild pine, honey, floral hops, and light orange peel with bready and caramel malts. Very sweet, almost like candy corn, with a nice hop bite in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, crisp, lively, refreshing, and smooth.
Overall, this is a solid little IPA from the good folks at Potosi Brewing. I found this a really simple but well-balanced IPA with a pleasant sweetness and amazing drinkability, especially considering it's 7% ABV.
