Not much for flavor with this one. Hops are strong with the finish

Served in a SAVOR snifter and consumed at a recent tasting.

Pours a light copper color with a good white head and a tad bit of lacing as the foam went down. The nose brought forward some mild earthy and herbal hops with a bit of light citrus rind. The flavor is really bland with very mild hops and a bit of bready malt. I'd say this was way more toward the English end of the spectrum in terms of the hops. Light chalk there as well. Medium body and light bitterness. This was an okay beer, and not something I would seek out again.

Poured into my new Brooklyn Tulip glass and it poured a deep amber with a heavy thick head with sticky lacing

Smell- There wasnt alot of nose to this one, slight hints of citrus and grass

Taste- i immediately taste some hop character with a malt finish. for me, this was quite malty

Mouthful- light and carbonated. like drinking a sprite. bubbles popping everywhere and taking away from the finish

Drinkability- not my cup of tea, but probably a good beer for a newbie to craft beer

Darker shade of yellow in color. Clear. Forms a modest off white head. Good retention. Light lacing. Aroma is bready and earthy. Some pine and, as it warms, a bit of green apple. Taste is similar. Lots of toast. Quite earthy, a bit of pine, then some bread. A little caramel compliments the earthy character. Medium bodied. Moderate astringent bitterness. Appropriate carbonation. A IPA in the old school american style. Not my personal preference, but not a terrible beer.

Undated 12 oz bottle served in a goblet.

Pours with a medium amber body that has excellent clarity and a durable, creamy head.

Some mildly sweet malty flavor up front before an ample hop load kicks in. A moderate bitterness with earthy hop flavors lingers on the palate after a crisp and dry finish.

O: recommended for hop heads, although not as fruity as I prefer.
