Bottle into nonic pint.

Pretty average looking ipa.... Orangey colored body. White head. Some spotty lacing. The head settled into a thin ring in a rather quick fashion.

Smells of biscuity malt with a dry toast note and some herbal/floral hops. This is the only out of 5 beers from this brewery that I've tried in which I could actually genuinely smell and taste hops! Hooray!
The hops aren't done poorly, but rather I find they are done minimally. Very little bitterness. Slight chalkiness on the finish.

Body is medium-light with decent carbonation.

Overall-- this is a lackluster ipa. Not one I will buy or drink again. (631 characters)

Beer is a gold/straw color and has a finger depth of fizzy head. The head diminished relatively fast with very little lacing. Sweet aroma with hints of fruit and alcohol. More so as the beer warms a bit. Brief fruit notes in the taste…again with an alcohol feel. Very light...and relatively smooth...with no real after taste...whatever is there fades very quickly. Not much of a hop character...nor really a malt...but not a balanced feel either. Dunno (454 characters)

Not much hops here for an IPA, mostly malty sweetness. Leaves an almost sugary stickiness feel in your mouth. There are some nice spicy, apple notes and it most certainly has a full body, but it just doesn't ring true to an IPA. Plain ale, perhaps.
Not a bad beer, its just that I'm a hop-head and love a good IPA. (314 characters)

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Brownish orange in color. Very clear. Pours with about an inch of sudsy head. Mild effervescence present.

Smell: Faint, honey sweet malts and bread. Kind of flat and earthy. Either my senses aren’t getting everything today or there’s just not much there.

Taste: Bitter hits first, with some of the bready malts following up. The bitter hops hits hard to begin and doesn’t really let up, finishing like dark chocolate. There’s a faint trace of metal.

Mouthfeel: Sort of on the thin side, and not much carbonation.

Overall: Drinkable for sure but not really all that memorable. It’s ok but I’ve had too many other great IPAs to give this one a future shot. I actually used one of the six to make beer bread without trying it first … there were probably better options out there for that as well. (827 characters)
