Pours a clear golden orange with a tall, sticky white head. Not terribly fragrant. Some spicy hops, a light grass, and some floral hops. Some sweet bread and a hint of biscuit. The flavor is biscuity and semi-sweet. Has a good toast flavor, a little bit of grass, and some spicy hops. There's a mild bitterness on the finish as well. A light fruitiness to the beer gives it the slightest complexity.

This poured out as a light orange color, there is a decent retention and a really impressive lacing. The beer looks really good. The smell doesn't really give off the hop aroma that I was hoping for. There are some earthy hops and honey on the nose. The taste of this beer is malty, some earthy bitterness. The mouthfeel of beer is nicely carbonated and light to medium bodied. Overall not the best IPA out there.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Gotta love asking local employees how this stuff is/is selling...gold... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear amber topped by a finger of lightly off-cream-white foam. The nose comprises biscuit and rather light grass. The taste holds notes of orange rind, light lemon rind, grass, and a touch of dried honey. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a pretty sad IPA, one with very little hop presence to speak of and a bland, overly bitter flavoring.

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.
