[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

The pour was a cloudy medium copper orange with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that did have great retention, finally reducing to a large cap with some fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a light straw malt, pine and citrus hops and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit) and caramel.

The taste was bitter sweet and mildly malty with hints of caramel and citrus from the start, with the finish having a nice hoppy pine ending. The flavor stuck around for an average duration after the swallow with a mild bitterness that faded slowly.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry oily texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall an IPA that had a nice malty feel to it, which did a great job of compensating for the bold and healthy hoppiness...

Thanks for sharing this one, Bobby.

A: The pour is orange-amber in color with a little bit more than a finger of off-white head.

S: Smells very green with a lot of pine, floral, and herbaceous, rosemary-like hop notes. There's still quite a lot of bread and malt on the nose and maybe a bit of a raw dough type thing as well.

T: The pine is quite strong on the tongue and provides a big bitterness. The same herbaceous and mildly woody character which is reminiscent of rosemary. A slight grapefruit note underneath it all along with the bread which underlies it all.

M: The body and carbonation are both medium.

D: Too herbal and woodsy without much of the citrus character that I find pleasing about an IPA.

Shared this one with a few friend's at Ratman's house. Poured a clear golden amber with a bit of amber foam on top. Aromas of biscuit, orange, light peach and a little pine. On the palate, this one was light to medium bodied with flavors of biscuit, light pine and light citrus.

12oz bottled February 2013. Served at around 40F.

Pours lightly hazy copper/amber with a one finger off-white head that leaves a ring of lacing and recedes to a small cap.

Aroma is primarily pine, along with earthy & resinous hops, hint of citrus rind, some apricot, decent caramel and bready malt backbone. OK aroma. Good strength.

Flavor is pine, resinous & earthy hops, apricot, touch of citrus, decent bit of caramel and a grainy malt presence, mild to moderate sweetness, strong bitterness, moderate alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, good carbonation.

Solid IPA, but nothing spectacular. Glad to have a chance to try it, but there are better ones out there.

12oz into mug.

A- Great clarity, vibrant golden yellow and a nice fluffy head that's heavy on the lace rings. Great presentation.

S- Lemon and tangerine notes, very fruity and somewhat floral hops. Very nice.

T- Hops are lemony, grassy, and medicinal. A bit sweet. I like all the hop notes, but not necessarily in combination with eachother. Not much malt presence, pretty dry and bitter finish.

M- Great carbonation, Body is a bit thin but OK.

D- Moderate. Plenty hoppy, maybe not my cup of tea, but worth trying.

Pours an amber-orange with a paperthin head which provides great lacing on my ccb pint glass. Aroma of citric hops and malts that are more balanced than a typical ipa but sometimes different is a nice change of pace. Taste follows the nose but ends surprisingly bitter more than expected for sure. It's smooth and easy drinking. I'm glad I got to try this
