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.

Orangey amber, on the darker side. Average foam in the big Duvel tulip with nice lacing along the glass. Some piney aromas. Nice sudsy mouthfeel. Thinner than a lot of IPAs.

Some fruity flavors and a malty base start this out pleasantly. This is a pretty bitter beer. Intense acidity to go with the orange and lemon and grapefruit flavors.

The carbonation really does last well and provides a mellow sudsiness. The aftertaste is always that hop attack. Hop fiends, this is your beer. Too much of a good thing for me, but this seems well made and clean. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Sunset Beer Company in Los Angeles.
