Have had a couple of bomber bottles of this now.

This beer pours a crystal clear considering that it's unfiltered. The color is a light amber to orange hued beverage. There is a small white head that dissipates in a minute or two to a light skim. There is some lacing down the sides.

The aroma is of strong tropical fruit, most prominent to me is pineapple. There is some light malt aroma but hops dominate.

Mouth feel is a medium to medium heavy with appropriate carbonation for the style.

Flavor is dominated by tropical fruit hops right up front that carry on through to me. Very little malt flavor. There is a mild lingering bitterness that's a little "piney" but nothing over the top.

Overall the beer is a nice drinkable American IPA but nothing that really sets it apart from other typical IPAs.

This is a reasonable IPA from Strand brewing. I picked it up because it was unfiltered and had a cool label. Poured into a pint glass from the bottle.

The beer pours a rich orange with a good looking thin head and a reasonable amount of foamy edging.

Atticus smells like malty old fruit soaked in beer. Not a strong aroma from the glass, mostly generic beer scent.

The taste is enjoyable. Smooth roasted malt and piney stinky hops in each drink. The front end is smooth and the back end is hops bitter. Very common drinking experience for IPAs in this range (7.1). I appreciate a nice bitter beer and this is a good flavored drink.

I sort of assumed there would be more murky funk in an "unfiltered" beer -- it is easy to drink right to the bottom of the bottle. No random swirl of muck in the bottom of the bottle, in fact the end sip seems to be as clean as the first.
