look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the 16 ounce can a dark, clear orange color with two fingers of rich beige head. Moderate amount of lacing left behind.

Aroma of grapefruit, pine and caramel malts.

The taste is definitely more malt-driven than hoppy. Bready and earthy malts and just a light hint of grapefruit and pine. Light bitterness to the finish.

Medium bodied and smooth with a moderate carbonation.

A decent IPA from Kirkwood Station. A brighter hop presence would have improved.

On-tap at their restaurant.

A: Clear, dark copper body. Thin head. Decent lacing.

S: Bitter hops, a little bit of sweetness from the malt.

T: Nice hop flavors in this one, a little one-sided though. The bitterness could be balanced better.

M: Nice texture, good carbonation.

O: Not a bad IPA, but kinda generic and forgettable.

A - Poured out a clear, copper color with a small, tan head of bubbly foam. It left some sudsy trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of spicy hops with some caramel and maltiness.

T - Nice sweet caramel with a burnt toast maltiness. It had a mild spicy bite of bitter hops.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a pretty tasty IPA. I'm glad my friends brought me a growler of this.

On tap from the brewpub poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Sticky thick rings of lacing on the glass. Floral hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character that has malty and floral flavors behind it. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitterness. This brew lacks complexity, but decent overall especially for spring/summer drinking.

4.2/5  rDev +10.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Clear, amber with 1 finger head that left a nice cap, and lots of lacing.

S - Lots of citrus and grapefruit notes. Floral and some light malt in the background.

T & M - Not overly hoppy, but with just enough to balance with the malts. Not a very high ABV for an IPA and you cannot taste much alcohol. Some nice malt notes and just the right amount of carbonation.

O - Solid IPA. Had 4 of their pints and this was my favorite. Others with me agreed. Very solid IPA.

Serving type: on-tap
