Pours a slightly cloudy copper with a thick, chunky head that sticks to the cup. Flavor is fine here, piney and quite bitter but with good balance, and a very well crafted soft mouth feel. Not an incredibly distinct IPA but a very good reproduction of the style. An any time solid choice at a bar or from the bottle.

Growler poured into a Snifter glass.

A - Pours a orange amber with a two finger head. Head retention is good.

S - Sweet malts and citrus fruits. Hops!

T - Caramel malts, some fruit up front. Bittering hops, Sweet malt Finish.

M - Medium bodied, bitter sweet palate and with a good amount of carbonation.

O - A Very malty, bitter IPA. Pretty good IPA, will get again.

A: Murky. Burnt orange. Huge fluffy head.

S: Floral, resin, pine, caramel, malt

T: Sweet, floral and caramel upfront. Actually quite a bit of floral. A sweeter IPA but ends with with a resiny quality (though not a punch to the taste buds). ABV is very well hidden.

M: On the thinner side for me.

O: A very good IPA. I enjoyed it and will enjoy another one.
