4.03/5 rDev +9.5%
Poured into becker pint glass; clear bright orange with a huge flufy white head that leaves a good amount of medium lacing. Smell is a nice blend of crackery malts and sweet/herbal hops. Taste is tame and balanced; crackery biscuity malt is paired perfectly with a dash of bitter and herbal hops. I've had better IPAs in this tamer vein, but this one isn't bad.

3.5/5 rDev -4.9%
From the 12. fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 15, 2013.
It is an attractive looking copper-amber color with some golden hues and a full off-white head.
The aroma is floral and earthy with hops with a more muted pale malt and sweet ester. Bitterness is the key.
The body is light to medium and there is a bit of a creaminess too.
The taste has a nice sweetness along with its bold hoppy bitterness at the end. While I found this to be a nice IPA I prefer their Green Monsta over this one.

4.06/5 rDev +10.3%
12 oz bottle from mixed 12 pack, probably like 2 months old.
A: a clear orange rust, thin had died quick, could be a dirty glass.
S: a nice piney and grapefruit aroma, smells like cascade. Classic American ipa.
T: a punch of grapefruit and pine comes, some caramel, toffee and bready flavors from the malt. Definitely some American yeast in the bready. Finishes very floral and herbal, is like a better version of sierra Nevada. Finish is dry and bitter.
M: medium to low carbonation, slightly creamy and syrupy, pretty full for the Abv. Definitely could session these.
O: a really solid ipa, great balance of hops, malt and yeast. Better than green monster, good example of a simple but great beer.
