Received this growler for my birthday.
A hiss as the cap twists off, pours out a very pale copper with slight haziness to it.
Half inch white cap, receding to a collar.
Aroma is very juicy hops, mild malt sweetness, caramel, pine and large amount of citrus. faint cotton candy aroma.
Taste has a wonderful balance of sweet malts and bitter hops. Buttery caramel rolls, citrus orange peel hops, pine bitters through the swallow and beginning to dry out into the finish. Clean, non-nagging hops that you can taste each sip without an obliterated pallet. Yet still very flavorful and hops being very much present.
Something in there reminds me of lactose.
Medium carbonation prickle with some hop oil slickness.
So drinkable, a hop thirst quencher with balance and terrific malt flavor.
Absolutely love this beer!

Has a bright, fresh aroma with some light citrus notes and some pine and resin. The malt has a sweet note that stays in the back, but is present. There is also a light peppery character. At first the pine and resin notes dominate in the hop flavor, but as it warms the citrus comes out more. The finish is crisp with a light oxydized note. Overall, this one was a pleasant IPA.

Lift Bridge Hop Dish
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into Samuel Adams perfect pint glass. Served chilled...
A) Darker amber with a finger of head. This settles to a dusting. There was some nice lacing.
S) Light tropical fruit sweetness, pineapple and mango. Mostly an earthy hop aroma.
T) Follows the nose... The flavor is better as this one warms up a bit. Tropical fruit is a quick hitter in the flavor, as I found it mainly to be grassy/earthy hops dominating, with some citrus rind on the backend. The alcohol is well hidden.
M) Medium bodied with a nice moderate carbonation level. Finishes dry with bitter rind. Decent aftertaste.
O) This is a decent brew, but in a world of wonderful IPAs to choose from, it's unlikely I'll drink this one again anytime soon.
