3.45/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Head starts out fizzy, but surprisingly enough forms a decent head of sand colored bubbles. Body is crisp and clean copper color leaning towards the golden side.

S: Skunky hops, redwood resin, grapefruit rind and some honey tangerine.

T: First thing that hits is bitterness across the front of the palate. This is interesting because bitterness usually comes after the swallow. Bitterness is dry, woody and mineralistic. Frankly, the whole beers takes on minerally qualities after this point. Hop profile is very piney and woody, with out many tells from the tangerine in the aroma. Finishes with a really earthy bitterness…sort of dirty.

M: Medium body, hard across the palate.

D: Not a bad beer. I like my IPA’s to be on the sweeter side opposed to dry, so this one isn’t totally up my alley.

Pours a clear golden orange color with a white head. Still surprisingly hoppy. Good citrus notes, mostly citrus peel, as well as some pine and floral hop aromas. A bit of sweet and bready malt. The flavor is moderately sweet, but some of that is sweet citrus hop flavor. A bit of orange peel and some pine bitterness. Light floral and grass flavors as well.

Had this at a friend's house. It was 3 years old, so that might not be a great thing for an IPA. It wasn't gross. It was actually very mellow and easy drinking. Nothing off-putting.

Poured an amber with good clarity, a nice two finger white head that faded slow and left nice lacing.

The aroma was of biscuit, caramel and apricots. Some floral notes and hints of citrus. Grapefruit and pine notes.

The flavor is simple, clean and mellow. Nice balance of a nutty/caramel, toasty, bready backbone with floral, herbal, and citrus hops. Fruity notes of apricot and vanilla.

Very smooth, medium body

Easy drinking, smooth, nicely balanced drink
