I've passed on this beer so many times and I have no idea why. Looking forward to giving it a shot. 12 oz. bottle poured into a Rowland's pint glass with a with a warning saying "Micro brewed beer has a lot of flavor and may cause you to actually taste your beer". Lets hope so!

A - Aggressive pour yields a creamy, one finger off-white head with pretty good retention. Leaves some frothy lacing down the glass. Rusty copper color with good clarity.

S - Fresh citrusy hops and some sweet malt that takes a backseat. Sweet grapefruit and some floral notes.

T - Wow! Loaded with hops. Citrusy with notes of orange rind and becoming more spicy on the back end. Malt presence (caramel?) is there but this one is all about the hops. Bitterness lingers for a while.

M - Medium-bodied leaning toward the full side. A good amount of carbonation but I wouldn't say it is overdone.

D - Good drinkability. Not as high as some other IPAs for me but I could throw back a few. Would be a good option to drink while snacking on chicken wings or some other fatty food.

I liked this beer. Were it not for the $11.99 price of the sixer I would probably be back for more soon.

Another brewery I missed a lot of reviews for some reason, this shouldn't be too old despite the lack of date.

Pours a nice creamy fluffy 1 finger head with some bubbles popping in the middle as it fades at a slow pace, nice lacing all over too, nice rosy amber red color, hazy.

Nose lots of candy malts, syrupy sweet caramel, little toffee, etc, candied orange peel, little citrus zest, fruity hops, hint of pineapple and citrus, etc, hint of booze wafting out. Aroma of an aged IPA unfortunately.

Taste brings a bit more sweetness, candy malts, syrupy, caramel, toffee, etc, with a little candied orange peel, little zest, some citrus and hint of pineapple, not really tropical fruit though, bit of warming booze. Again that aged hop IPA note. Finish is a bit sweet and candy like, fair bitterness, little toffee and caramel, little pineapple and bitter orange peel, etc.

Mouth is med bod, bit of warming booze, decent carb but not great.

Overall OK, but seems like it is aged a bit, not a great IPA at least this day and age, more like a muted aged IPA with flashes of what could have been good. Lots more malty, lighter on the hops, etc. I'll have to try this again if I can find it fresh, but with no date on the bottle it'll be hard. Maybe if I ever find a draft version.
