This was one of my goal beers on my Ohio buying trip and I was not disappointed. This ale pours a very cloudy copper color with a ton of sediment (god I love unfiltered beers). The head is off white and short lasting but the lacing is quite substantial. The nose is a delicious blend of bitter hops; both citrus and pine. This offering smells very fresh and lively. The taste totally follows suit; all hops. It is a sparkling delicious and fresh ipa. Not complex but awesomely is what it is. Think hopslam but smoother and a little less in your face. This is a great beer and will pick up every time I'm in Ohio.

Sampled on tap at Melts in Independence, OH.

Beautiful golden color with excellent clarity and a small white head and great lacing. Nice citrus and tropical fruits in the nose. Outstanding hop flavor with excellent complexity and a moderate bitterness. The flavors echo well after you've swallowed. A creamy, smooth consistency.

It's nice to see such great west coast IPAs coming out of other parts of the country.
