A - Pours a beautiful copper/caramel/orange with light orange on the edges. Nice inch and a half of rocky light tan head that shrinks moderately to a nice thin topper. Lace piles on down the tumbler.

S - Hop first nose smacks of floral goodness. Some caramel toasty malt as well but it's all about the hops on this one.

T - Nice juicy hops with various floral and herbal notes. Piney and resiny in the background. Malt underlies nicely with bread and caramel/toffee accents . Slightly bitter on the finish with a clean dry hop finish.

MF - Somewhere past medium bodied, nice carbonation, good finish.

A solid malt backbone with a great hop profile. Essentially a dry-hopped amber that does everything right.

Pours from the can hazy amber with a good two finger chunky head. Leaves thick lacing all over the glass, retention is just about average. Appealing.

Caramel malt, fruit sweetness like that of pears, tangerine and white grape juice. Hops hidden amongst the sweetness, slight pine, more oranges and herbal bitter tones.

Sweet malt, rather sticky with sugary white fruit, candied pears, clementines and vinous fruit like white grapes. Hops are understated here presenting garden vegetable dirt, pine and herb flavor on the back end with a decent amount of bitterness, not enough to completely dry the stickiness of the malt. Alcohol mingles with the bitter finish and a metallic twinge.

Light ipa, a bit chalky on the finish and sticky. Average carbonation.

A bit bothersome that the hops present themselves only in the bitterness department, the malt profile while sticky is nicely complex. Light drinker that is easy to put down, just not what I like in an IPA.

Smell : hops, malty and caramel aromas
Taste & mouthfeel : malty and dry hoppy flavors, leading with nice bitter finish.
Drinkability : a nice beer in the style American IPA.
