4.05/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A very thin head of a strong ivory color. Dissipates rapidly with weak lacing. Color of body is a deep brown with a hint of amber.

A rich malty aroma with caramel undertones, but that's about all I'm getting here.

Taste -- a sensational caramel blast with fruity undertones and a rapidly accelerating bitter hop flavor. Bitter hops are sharp on full impact but fade as quickly as they appeared -- although a lasting bitterness remains nicely. Although the hops are strong, they lack the eclectic flavor of, say, a Dogfish 60 minute or Stone IPA. Nevertheless, this is a flavorful beer accentuated by the well balanced hops and malt foundation.

Mouthfeel is smooth overall but carbonation is a bit strong for my taste.

Drinkibility is good. This IPA goes down smooth with viscosity slightly on the weak side. I perfer a more viscous IPA.

I am pleasantly surprised here. This beer is somewhat unique in its initial blast of flavor followed by the accelerating hop sensation. I think the beer would have greatly benefitted by a slightly more eclectic hop flavor and a more viscous mouthfeel. But overall an impressive IPA.

4.01/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Either bottled on or best by May 2014.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip.

a; nearly clear amber with an inch tall whote head which receded slowly to dense surface foam and lacing.

s: Orange.

t; Citrusy bitter hops up front over a medium bready malt base. Bitterness hangs on the sides of the tongue. Bitterish to tart finish.

m: Medium with great body and smooth oiliness. Very nice.

o: An exceptional IPA, a fine junior partner of their double, No. 6.
