3.53/5  rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clean orange-ish/ red color with a light tan red. In the aroma, gritty pine hops and a nice maltiness to it. In the taste, pines hops and a balanced sweet to dry malt backing. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry pine hop aftertaste. Nice hop presence, more like a pale than an IPA though.

Serving type: can

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear, amber color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of earthy malt, nuts, slight citrus hops, and a hint of floral hops. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, earthy malt, nuts, slight sweet malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, reminiscent of a New Belgium beer (per the malt flavors), good appearance, and blend.

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

Not the typical IPA, that's fer shur. Pours a slightly transparent, light orange color with a good finger of head.

Bold, malty presence gives it somewhat of an English IPA feel to it. Smells of caramel and bready malts and tastes of the same. Slight, slight hints of chocolate hover in the background and come to the forefront from time to time, but again, the caramel-ly malt is the star of the show here. The hops help balance it a bit here, but aren't too noticeable. Took my sweet time with this and still felt decent in the mouth by the end of it, once it had time to warm up quite a bit.

Can into pint glass
A – Light beige dense head barely stayed in the glass with a full pour of the can, excellent lacing as it recedes to a thin layer. Deep reddish-brown clear amber color 4
S – Piney resin, herbal/floral mix, mild caramel malt sweetness and something slightly earthy here 3.5
T – Holy malt batman. Sweet bread, caramel malts, grapefruit zest bitterness, this is the most malty IPA I’ve had… but the hops are very much in the bitterness and aftertaste. Mild tobacco notes make themselves known 3.5
M – Smooth and slightly syrupy with a moderate to full body, my favorite characteristic of this beer 4
O – Unique and something I would recommend to IPA lovers just because I’ve had nothing like it. I won’t be seeking it out again but I’m very glad I have had it. A style expander of a brew. 3.5

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

Acquired via trade from KenGage, so a big "Thank you" goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light golden brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of caramelized malts, citrus and some hops.

T: The taste starts out malty and sweet with flavors of caramel and citrus. There's a decent hops bitterness but it's not as strong as most IPA's. The malt character is hearty and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, it's a good beer but there are but there are several other IPA's that I would pick first.

A ~ a rusty looking amber going on with a half finger thick foam floatin' on the top...after a few minutes, a thin, cloudy lacing left on top with pieces clinging to the glass

S ~ somewhat reminded me of a lighter Lagunitas Kronic.... hoppy, coppery, malty mixture waiting to be sampled

T ~ like the nose, some similar to the Kronic....a mix of hop-malt taste with a linger effect on the back of the palate....hints of the alcohol present

M ~ smooth, carbonated....thin to medium bodied

O ~ pretty decent brew... a mixture of cans I got from a Colorado hook up..
