Big thanks to Reaper16 for the extra!

A- Slightly hazy amber body with a thick fluffy off-white head.

S- Hops are noticeable, but not dominate. Pine, some citrus, along with a bready malt aroma.

T- Hops do not stand out, malt is very noticeable and the alcohol comes through way too much for a 7% beer.

M- Has a sharp bite, along with high carbonation levels.

O- I appreciate both hop-forward and balanced IPAs, but this one does not really fit into either. Not a good IPA.

Poured from a bottle to a brandy snifter. It has a three finger head on it, which is good because I find that head releases that wonderful hop aroma.

Smell: Good citrus, hop aroma a little resiny maybe some Simcoe in there.

Appearance: A nice orange to amber colored creamy white head.

Taste: Delightful with that citrus notes carrying through on the flavor and a malty backbone. When the hop aroma begins to fade a little by the end the malt is still nice with a little sweetness.

Overall: A good IPA because I love the hop punch to begin with. I have tried Hop Ottin and others and found them too malty. I love a more West Coast style with hoppiness.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Arrives with a hazy amber color capped by a two-fingered head that leaves a few shards of lace

Smell: Toffee dominates the aroma, with herbal and grassy hops in the background

Taste: Biscuity, up front, with a growing toffee sweetness; by mid-palate, the piney, resinious hops add another dimension, though the malt grows sweeter in the process; vegetal flavors, including chives, linger in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not a bad IPA and I will say that the flavor profile is distinctive - just not what I am seeking when I feel like an IPA

Aroma here has a resinous, grassy, perhaps pine tree hoppiness to it, with a small sweet malt smell poking through after it has opened up.

The taste has an initial good punch of herbal hops, perhaps a bit grassy....with a caramel backbone that is certainly present in the middle part of the swallow. Bitterness is quite medicinal and lingering on the backend and puckers my tongue a bit...not sure if I'd classify that as pleasant.

American IPA is one of the most crowded styles in craft beer, so one like this just isn't one I'm going to fall back on very often. I didn't find the hop character or finish to be to my liking.
