a - nice solid IPA color with small head out of a tap in a higher end restaurant. mainly clear, medium golden color for an IPA.

s- not very aromatic given many of the other very floral IPA types I had on the west coast

t - very easy to drink, no hard bite, but still a nice IPA flavor

m- great drinkability, could have had several more, nice level of carbnoation

o- would drink again on tap for sure if I can find it - not sure of its availability since I am the first review and this beer seems to just be coming to a wider market

Pint from "b2" Taphouse in Salem. $4.00 Lightly orange coloured body with a half inch white frothy head. Rather balanced aroma..spicy/citric hop and caramel malts. Nice. Taste is the same ..its rather well balanced and almost dare i say English in styling! Good smooth mouth feel and low bitter after taste. An easy drinking balanced IPA will not be to some peoples taste, but it was fine and drinkable.

Served on tap into a becker glass.

A- Poured a clear orange color with soapy off-white head that left no lacing.

S- Big pungent hoppy aroma of grapefruit, orange citrus, floral, piney, and mango notes.

T- Big pungent and hoppy flavor profile with huge grapefruit, orange citrus, and mango notes, some floral, piney hops, and a nice caramel backbone.

M- Soft carbonation, lighter bodied, and slightly watery finish.

O- A very nice hop forward IPA with a nice malt backbone. Very complex hop flavors and aroma with a touch of malt sweetness for some balance.

Pours a dark orange with minimal head.

Smell is of grapefruit and orange, some pine. Nice citric component.

Taste is light malts and hop zest. Orange, grapefruit, biscuit, toast.

Mouthfeel is lightly carbed with medium feel.

Overall I think this is an average IPA with no off flavors to speak of but not alot going on. Run of the mill really.
