12oz bottle poured into an imperial pint glass.
A: Pours clear, bright golden copper (you know the color those brand new pennies have, close to that but a shade darker and not shiny). Head starts off fluffy and recedes into a cap but that lacing is as apparent as ever.
S: The first few beers out of the sixer didn't seem to give up the kind of aroma I am finding here. I guess that's the benefit of turning the TV off for a review? In any case I am getting some tropical fruit notes, mango and pineapple in particular, but there is a strong underlying current of bready malt, if a bit stale, that comes out of the mix as well.
T/MF: Mmm, pretty solid, very well rounded and I am not afraid to say that. Malt comes through to the perfect degree, caramel malt comes out matched/blended almost indistinguishably from the earthy, slightly resinous hops. Feel is pretty standard for an IPA a bit sloshy but can't complain overall as it feels like an IPA, a bit grabby on the back of the tongue and mid-bodied, what else can you say really?
D: In a word. Decent. Nothing mind-blowing, very well rounded and pretty fun to drink but there are better beers for less money.

I’ve had this many times before, but, having just joined the site, I decided to write a review this time. The beer is dated 6/3/14 (about two months old). It pours a straw yellow that borders on copper under certain lighting. The aroma is pleasant with a subtle citrus characteristic, but predominantly earthy resinous hops. The taste has more citrus than the nose would suggest and is full of orange and lemon zest. The beer finishes with a sturdy, resinous hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue for awhile. It is medium bodied with a modest amount of carbonation, which suits the style well. Overall, a solid beer. At a reasonable price, it is a nice go-to beer.
