Draught served in pint glass. Beer is medium orange amber with a bit of white head. Aroma suggests not much went into this IPA as far as dry hopping goes. Flavor is hoppy but quite drinkable. Reasonably well balanced, and very neutral in the aftertaste, but pretty average on flavor, too. Decent lacing, at least. Not at all a "Monsta", this could be quite sessionable, if it was worth your time.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color; a rather modest head pancakes its way down leaving a few squiggles of lace

Smell: Grassy, with peach and pine accents

Taste: Bready malts buttress the unusual hop flavors of this brew - grassy, with peach and pine tones; very herbal and assertively bitter, after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: While I like the peach element that is almost hidden by the other hop flavors, I really didn't care for the grassy/piney blend that dominated; an interesting and different sort of an IPA, just not something I particularly enjoyed

A - Pours clear yewllow gold with one finger of whtie soapy head, little lacing.
S - Lots of pine and grapefruit, some sweet orange, fresh baked bread.
T - Lots of lemon and lime flavor, big fresh pine hoppy traits, slightly dank, a lot of fresh bread malt on the end.
M - Juicy, a little tart, but well balanced.
O - This is a great American IPA, good use of American hops, lots of good citrus flavor.

12oz bottle with a Best By Date of the Ides of March 2014. One of the 4 beers in the Box of Brews mix 12 pack. Pours a coppery amber color with a half inch of head. Good amount of lacing. The aroma is piney hops with some orange peel and lemon. The taste is alot less hoppy than the aroma with more of a malt presence. Some spicy hops with floral bitterness at the end. Hints of lemon. Lots of carbonation. Overall, its a decent brew to have in a mix pack but I probably wouldn't seek it out on its own.
